The 2017 Rewired Men’s Conference, presented by the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma (BGCO), will be April 28-29 at Falls Creek Baptist Conference Center near Davis, Oklahoma.
Keith Burkhart, BGCO men’s and family ministry specialist, said the theme for the retreat will be “Advance Truth: Turning the World Upside Down.”
”Last year we had the introduction of ‘Truth.’ This year we are going through the next phase, which is to ‘Advance Truth,’ focusing on three primary pillars for men,” Burkhart said. “These (pillars), leadership, mentorship and discipleship, are key to advancing men back in the local church.”
Keynote speakers for this annual event include: Jim Putnam, co-founder and senior pastor of Real Life Ministries in Post Falls, Idaho. In college, Putnam won three All-American titles in wrestling and went on to become a successful wrestling coach; Cliff Graham, a bestselling novelist and speaker who focuses on creating exciting Bible-based content and encouraging men to live a Christ-centered life; and Kenyatta Wright, born and raised in Vian, Okla. and is a graduate of and former linebacker at Oklahoma State University. He went on to play in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets.
