The Rewired Men’s Conference is an annual event that takes place in the Arbuckle Mountains at a conference center known as Falls Creek. The focus is transforming the lives of men through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Rewired reaches men from all backgrounds and interests or what Keith Burkhart, Men’s Ministry Specialist at the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, likes to call the different “tribes” of men. These tribes are what set Rewired apart from other men’s conferences around the country. It is one of the only conferences where you will see a biker, cowboy, hipster, gamer and businessman standing together in worship as the greater tribe of Christian men.

The unifying force that brings these men together is threefold: a love for Christ and desire to be men of God who influence their world;  to find the right next step or direction for their relationship with God;  and to find and build godly friendships with other men.



At Rewired there are activities for many of the tribes of men. Some of these activities include: 5K Run/Walk, fitness competition, BBQ Competition, stunt bike demonstration, basketball, skatepark, giant chess, giant checkers, table tennis, intellectual games, grilling demonstration, trout fishing, and hiking/walking trails.

In 2017 we will offer 25 Truth Tracks. Pick one. Follow it through the entire conference.  Don’t worry, if you’re having trouble picking, we will offer all of the Truth Tracks as downloadable Bible Studies after the Conference.

To the right are the Truth Track leaders for 2017.  This is not all of the leaders for 2017.  Listed are their names and where they are ministering.  As we get closer to the conference, we will add bios, Truth Track titles and descriptions. For now, you can explore who they are and what they do through the links to their social media, websites and possibly videos.

Automatic Manhood

The term Automatic Manhood is a false term. Manhood does not come with age or status. We live in a generation where the voice of reason about what makes you a man is not rooted in God’s Word. Culture is screaming at the top of its lungs to let society shape our definition of a man. I do not have all the answers. I do know that throughout the Bible it tells us answers offered by culture are rarely true. We will discuss how to decipher between what the world says makes you a man verses what God says makes you a man and how to live in this world and not be engulfed in the ways of the world. This is not an easy, feel-good topic. For many, cultural ways have been embedded into their very core. I’m praying for the Lord to divide bone and marrow as He removes the idealisms of the world and replaces them with His truth. It most likely will be uncomfortable, painful, and, at times, frustrating. We will be asked to make changes, and to remove long held habits and attitudes.  All this for the sake of being everything God calls us to be. I will let you in on a secret: There is no such thing as automatic manhood! If you are ready to seek out what it takes to be a man of God, join us!

Storms of Life: Learning to Trust God Again

Everyone experiences life storms. Divorce, bankruptcy, illness or the loss of loved ones are all examples. During these hard times, it is common to ask the question, “Why?” Why does God allow suffering in this world He created? Some people walk through life storms with their faith intact and become stronger than ever.  Others walk away from God and faith during similar difficulties. What is the difference?

Is it possible to weather life storms and develop inner grit, spiritual richness and emotional depth? Can we as men, walk through hard times in a way that our families and others around are strengthened and encouraged to face their own storms? Can we honor God, even in the darkest times?

This Truth Track will guide you to develop tools to help you weather life’s storms and even more to learn how you can lead and serve others as they walk through their own storms.

LET US RUN: Seven Crucial Decisions to Make NOW in order to Finish Well THEN

No man just wakes up and falls out of bed and then finishes well. Every man’s life, in fact, is the result of earlier decisions made at critical moments throughout his life. God’s word gives clear instructions regarding those crucial decisions, what they are, and how to make them. This Truth Track reveals the urgent importance of making seven crucial decisions NOW which will insure that you finish well THEN. This is a course for every man, regardless of his age or stage in life, enabling him to establish biblical priorities that will guide his thinking and his behavior for the balance of his life. You will discover that, while you can do nothing about your past, there is still time to honor the Lord with what is left of your life.

Conquering Your Giants

ESPN Great Outdoor Games Fly Fishing Gold medalist, Chuck Farneth, will present a simple, authentic, challenging, inspiring, yet real look at how the giants in our lives hinder or develop the potential that God has for all of us. Chuck would like to use God’s Word and his fly rod to help every man “fight his battle” by demonstrating their faith, taking a risk, and trusting God for the results. What’s your giant? God has a stone for every Goliath.   RUN TO THE BATTLE!

Read Chuck's Bio

Chuck Farneth is the director of Outdoor Legacy. Outdoor Legacy is a Christian ministry that aims to equip men with a clear understanding of manhood, resulting in a renewed vigor to invest themselves in their children’s and other young people’s lives. Outdoor Legacy provides a variety of brief, intensive experiences that provide instruction in the art of fly fishing, authentic manhood, and building deep and lasting relationships. The following is how Chuck describes Outdoor Legacy’s mission: “With God’s word as our map to the eternal treasures hidden within the great outdoors, we are committed to investing the Christian principles of authentic manhood into the lives of men, shaping future generations through the love of Jesus Christ”. Chuck, by any definition, is a fisher of men. He also happens to be a world class fly fisherman. Among his many accomplishments, Chuck rose to the pinnacle of his sport by winning the gold medal in the 2001 ESPN Great Outdoor Games. He currently represents the United States in international competition as a member of the Masters Fly Fishing Team USA. Chuck’s love of God, the outdoors, and his God-given skill of fly fishing are what led him to step out in faith and launch Outdoor Legacy. The following is an excerpt from Chuck’s testimony: I gave my life over to full-time Christian work in 1992, saving and enriching marriages and helping moms and dads become better parents through FamilyLife, a ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU). In July 2001 God called my wife (Sherry), and I to step up to the task of reaching out to men and families through a vehicle that almost every person can relate to; the outdoors. I believe that the desire to enter into wild places is a part of the spirit of adventure that God instills in every man. For some, outdoor sports are an escape from the work-a-day world. Focusing completely on the task of hunting or fishing brings relaxation and temporarily eliminates the continuous stress that is so much a part of most lives. Others are drawn to the great satisfaction and reward that comes from pitting themselves against nature. Still others enjoy the fellowship that comes along with spending time with a group pursuing activities they love. For the Christian, the great outdoors is more than a place for escape and relaxation. It is God’s tabernacle, and time spent in it becomes a kind of Sabbath, that is a time set aside for both rest and worship. It is a time when we lay down our worries, obligations, and ambitions and gratefully enter into God’s presence. For over 50 years fly-fishing has been my Sabbath, it provides therapy and recreation that takes me away from the harsh reality of a fallen world and brings me closer to God and his creation. This is the aspect of outdoor sports that I most wish to share with others. My many years of fishing for trout and other species with a fly rod has given me some measure of skill in the art of fly-fishing. God’s grace has enabled me to use my skills for his glory. My most recent accomplishments were participating in the ESPN Great Outdoor Games in Lake Placid, NY in the Fly-Fishing competition where I received a bronze medal in 2000 and 2002, and a gold medal in 2001. I also won the Northeast Regional Fly Fishing Masters in 2004. I have been privileged to be selected for Team USA Masters and competed in the World Championship, garnering 4th. In my mind, these accomplishments are nothing more than God’s affirmation of my dream of combining my love of outdoor sports, particularly fly-fishing, with my passion for bringing the healing love of Christ to a broken world.

Pastor, First Baptist Church

If men are to lead, they need to be deeply anchored to the right things from the right heart. True leaders lead from the inside out, and men will never live Gospel-centered lives if they do not have Christ-centered hearts. In this Truth Track, we will talk about being anchored in Christ, by God’s Truth, and for eternal purposes.  There will be such personal challenge and many practical applications as we dig into God’s Word and get real and honest about what it truly means to be a man who is anchored.

Mentor Like Jesus: His Radical Approach to building the Church

Radical Mentoring is simply doing what Jesus did. For just a minute let us think about Jesus from a totally human perspective.  Jesus is one of the most admired figures in all of human history. A majority of Americans admire Jesus, whether they believe that He was God’s Son or not. Almost no one will say something bad about Jesus. Most think well of Him.

Why? Jesus did not bring a revolutionary teaching to the world. He was Jewish. He stood by and amplified Jewish law. He did not create some new higher consciousness or begin a sociopolitical movement. He lived a somewhat normal life as a child and then became a significant historical and religious figure in the last three years of His life.

For years, people have hypothesized what Jesus would be like in everyday roles – CEO, Teacher, Leader, Husband, and Friend. One role that Jesus plays that is inarguable is Mentor. Jesus mentored twelve guys for three years. It’s well documented . . . by four different authors, two of which were eyewitnesses and products of His mentoring process. If there’s anything we should be able to learn from Jesus and replicate in our own lives it is mentoring.

In these sessions, we will unpack the 11 key ingredients to mentor like Jesus and discuss how to introduce small group mentoring into your local church.

I exist to glorify God by helping others unlock and apply their God-given talents and strengths. In July 2015, Kevin officially joined the Radical Mentoring team. As Executive Director, he is excited about connecting his purpose with Radical Mentoring purpose as we seek to engage as many men as possible through small group mentoring. Kevin grew up in Durham, NC and attended Furman University before moving to Atlanta.Prior to joining Radical Mentoring, he led a sales team at Wells Real Estate Funds and served in sales positions at CNL and Atlas Energy.

I grew up in Enid, Oklahoma where in 1981 I trusted Jesus as my Lord and Savior through the influence of Emmanuel Baptist Church and my high school sweetheart, Cami , who is now my wife, the mother of our four children, and my best friend. I have the privilege of being the pastor at Putnam City Baptist Church in Oklahoma City where I began my ministry in 1986 as their Student Minister. I have served SBC churches in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Georgia. I served as a Regional Director for Next Level Leadership with the North American Mission Board for the 15 years providing leadership development and training for the Southern Baptist Convention and have a leadership consulting company, ProActive Leadership which equips God’s leaders with leadership tools like team building, conflict management, life coaching, leadership style assessments and proactive leadership development. I didn’t grow up being actively involved in a church and didn’t experience God’s grace until the end of my high school years. Consequently, I have a huge passion to reach out to those who are separated from God’s love and see them discipled in their faith. It is my desire to glorify God as I become a servant leader to His Church and seek to live the greatest commandments by loving God with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my strength, with all my mind, and loving my neighbor as myself.

Show Yourselves Men

There is a battle waged against every single man of God every single day of their lives. A man of God must be watching and remain alert for the battle that is coming, with his footing rooted deep in the faith. To fight this battle, every man of God must be strengthened by the strength provided through Christ. This fight is only victorious when it is fought with the love of God who is the source and spring of love.

“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in Love.” I Corinthians 16:13-14

Him.Men.Neutics: Leading Men to Interpret the Bible

Men are often overwhelmed and intimidated by the study of God’s Word (hermeneutics). Can you study the Bible without an advanced, academic degree? Absolutely! This Truth Track will lead men to develop a plan for how to interpret the Bible. We will consider the spiritual and strategic preparation required for Bible study. In addition, we will cover how to understand the Bible’s various parts, how to do a Word Study, and how to determine the meaning and impact of Scripture.

Scripture: Can You Handle It? Becoming a Competent Expositor of God’s Word

What is going to last? When it’s all said and done, what still remains? When the smoke clears from the final apocalypse, what will still be standing? The answer to this question is crucial because whatever this might be is what we should build our lives on and around. Only two things will last forever, people and the word of God. There are other breakouts at Rewired that will equip you to make an impact on people, to mentor them, to coach them, and to lead them. This breakout will equip you to give people what they truly need, the word of God.

Radical Growth: Five Essentials for Spiritual Vitality

Spiritual growth is not a mechanical process, rather it is organic and dynamic in nature. Jesus regularly used agricultural language to describe this process. He described the Kingdom of God as being like a seed; depth in the word as being like roots in soil; life in Spirit as being like a vine; and the manifestation of the Spirit’s work in our lives as being like fruit. If we understand this process on a practical level it can be truly beneficial to the way we understand spiritual maturity and provide a metric for basing our understanding how discipleship works. In this track I will lead guys through this biblical process in a clear understandable way. Once we grasp the five essentials, it will free us up to live for Him in a way that is encouraging and dynamic!

A Godly Man’s Worldview

Romans 12:1-2 tells us not to be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds, that we may present ourselves to God as a living sacrifice and understand His perfect will. This means that every man needs to be consciously shaping his worldview around God’s truth. Since we live in a postmodern, secular culture, this task is doubly important. This Truth Track is designed to help men evaluate and shape their worldview in their heart, their home, and their workplace. As we renew our minds with God’s truth, we will know His perfect will, and be faithful to give ourselves as living sacrifices for His glory and kingdom.

Trusting God Through The Changing Seasons Of Your Life

In the early years of our marriage and ministry, my late wife Debbie began to say to this to other people when they were going through a difficult time,   “Just remember, this is only for a season.”

We all experience changing seasons in our life.  With each new season there are new and unexpected challenges to trusting God.  In each new season our faith in God needs to grow and change with new insights into who God is and how He wants us to trust Him.  In this Truth Tract we will explore God’s Word and see what God says to us during these different seasons.  From bible stories and stories of my changing seasons, I will be sharing how I have experienced God and how you can experience Him in your life by trusting Him through the changing seasons of your life.

In this Truth Track we will specifically cover these seasons of our life.

  1. Trusting God during lean times
  2. Trusting God in times of loss
  3. Trusting God in times of prosperity

Motivational Speaker
and NFL Alum



What would it be like to to compete every day for something greater than yourself? What would it be like to pursue greatness every day? What would it be like to compete every day for Jesus Christ?

Every day in the NFL I faced situations that put my faith and commitment to the test. I was constantly reminded of to think: “when the coach stops blowing the whistle where did I find my motivation?”. Men all over the world face situations that challenge their commitment and faith daily and we all long for that Sunday morning. I lived in a lifestyle that was focused solely on the “Big Game” and for many that leads to confusing your purpose, dangerous lifestyles and seasonal battles of faith. This Truth Track will help us men dive into the master playbook, the inerrant, infallible and living word of God. Men, imagine if we could challenge every man (teammate) to become a fearless leader in their own lives, marriages, families, churches, and communities. During this Truth Track we will lace up our cleats, stand firm, and unpack what it looks like to compete every day for the Kingdom.

Kenyatta Wright is deeply humbled & committed to faithful biblical application and teaching. That is something that becomes obvious from anyone who is around him. He is a dynamic communicator obviously gifted by God to be able to minister to a wide range of people. Kenyatta is owner/founder of TRUTH Supply Co. “My Goal is to Advance the conversation about Jesus through fashion, speech, technology , love and to reach, rescue and revive Men,Women and Children to love God and others”. He also serves as the Lake Country FCA Area Director and is a member Timothy Baptist Church in Muskogee , Oklahoma and travels sharing the incredible message of grace and reconciliation of those whom Jesus calls to repent and believe. He was born and raised in Vian, Ok in a home that feared God. At the age of 13, he walked down an aisle at Falls Creek, as he wanted to avoid eternal separation from God. But really did didn’t follow Jesus,just became a fan. After a successful high school football and baseball career, he graduated from high school at Vian and accepted a football scholarship to Oklahoma State University. It was at OSU that he came into a true knowledge of who Jesus was and a personal relationship with Christ is what he was missing. While serving at a FCA Football Camp at the rival Oklahoma University Kenyatta began the wonderfully arduous journey of following Him a short time later. He was an fierce competitor and standout linebacker at Oklahoma State University where he was a starter for 4 season and team captain. Kenyatta has been labeled one of the Top 10 players of all time at Linebacker and has a position on the Oklahoma State Wall of Fame. Kenyatta amassed over 265 tkls and 11 sacks while being the vaunted leader and signal caller of the Orange Crush Defense that produced some of the greatest defensive players in OSU history. After college Wright signed with Wade Phillips & Buffalo Bills and then the New York Jets . Some of the highlights of his Pro career was being named Team Captain alongside his teammates that featured Hall of Famers and some of the greatest players in NFL history like Curtis Martin,Marvin Jones(Jets) Doug Flutie,Sam Cowart,Ted Washington (Bills). “ The Pro Bowl selections, the tackle records or even the experience of playing in NFL football games, will never measure up to the relationships that God used to mold me into the man I am today, and for that I am thankful” He ultimately walked away from the game of football to pursue family settlement, coaching and eventually the call to full time ministry . He and his wife Amber and 4 children (Alexis, Elijah, Solomon, Avery) live in Fort Gibson , OK.
