This one-day conference is designed specifically for men. Attendees will be encouraged and challenged to live and lead biblically in their homes, their community, and their workplaces.
Men are assigned the unique role to lead and care for others, especially the ones most precious to us. The Scriptures give us a clear title and picture for that role: shepherd. And like the physical shepherds of old, often the tasks required are mundane, tiring, inglorious, and often misunderstood, yet absolutely essential to the spiritual health and well-being of those we lead.
Join us at 2022 Ironmen Summit Owasso as we take a deep look at Jesus, our Good Shepherd, not only to strengthen our resolve to put ourselves under His care, but also to greater pattern our leadership after His example.

Tim has been a member of the Pastoral team at BCLR since 1997, beginning in Student Ministries, then transitioning into Adult Ministries in June 2010. He received his B.A. from Clemson University in 1993 and his M.Div. from The Master’s Seminary in 1997. While in college, God graciously opened his spiritual eyes at the age of 19 to realize his need to be clothed in the righteousness of Christ, rather than in his own ‘filthy rags’ of self-righteousness. Since that time, his single passion has been to know Christ more and to make Him known to others.
Tim and his wife, Hannah, have five children and enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, and riding bikes together
Andrew serves as the Pastor for Youth and Assimilation. He enjoys teaching the Bible and equipping young people to love Christ and serve His Church. Andrew has a special desire to build up the Church through instruction in the Old Testament. He also has a passion for building intentional biblical community and practicing hospitality, and equipping others to do the same.
Andrew is married to his lovely wife Carly and they have two little children. The Copleys love classic literature, coffee, and exploring God’s creation. Andrew also enjoys playing music and anything frisbee-related
Chuck has served Christ in full-time ministry for over twenty years. God granted him salvation during his childhood in his hometown of Portland, OR. After graduating from Oregon State University, Chuck worked in the service/sales industry in Houston, TX. During those years, Chuck's desire to serve the Lord in full-time ministry grew, and he left the business world to attend The Master's Seminary where he earned a Master of Divinity degree.
Since that time, the Lord has allowed Chuck to serve in associate pastor roles in both Alabama and Kansas. He also served as senior pastor for several years. Chuck loves the church of God; his passions in ministry include discipling men, equipping the saints for ministry, and using his administrative/teaching gifts to serve the body of Christ. Chuck's partner in ministry is his wife, Kathy. They have three adult children: Scott and his wife, Chelsea, Mark, and Rebecca.
The Lord brought Chris to GCC in May of 2019. He graduated from TMS in 2008 with a Diploma of Theology. He has been in full time ministry since 1999. Pastor Chris has been married for 26 years to Hayley and they have been blessed with 5 children ages 25 to 14, 3 boys and 2 girls.
Ted has been the preaching pastor since our founding in 2007. His ministry emphasizes careful verse-by-verse exposition of the Bible and encouragement to actively live out the faith and share the good news of Jesus with the world around. Ted was an industrial engineer for seven years prior to feeling compelled to preach God's Word and help lead His church full-time. Before coming to The Bible Church of Owasso, Ted earned a Master of Divinity from The Master's Seminary and served for three years as an Associate Pastor at Tulsa Bible Church.
Ted's wife, Beth, is the love of his life and his helper in the ministry. Ted and Beth love living in Owasso and are blessed to have three children. Ted enjoys being outdoors, reading, competitive sports, family time, and spending time with other believers.
NOTE : If hotel costs would keep you away from attending the conference, please let us know. We may other options for you.
Ironmen Summit Owasso is designed as a "men only" conference. Although there is no official age limit, we would suggest a minimum age of 15...however, fathers may exercise their own judgement as to the maturity level of their own sons.
Registration includes admission to the conference, as well as breakfast and lunch served on site. Coffee and bottled water will also be available throughout the day. Each attendee will also receive a free book (yet to be determined) at the conference.
Parking will be available at the conference site and immediate area. Parking Assistants will direct you as you approach the conference location. Owasso is located approximately 10 miles north of Tulsa, OK.
Definitely bring a prepared heart to be encouraged and challenged to live as the father, son, and/or husband God has called you to be. We would also encourage you to bring a Bible in some form (e.g. physical or electronic). Free pens and commemorative notebooks will be available, but you may want to bring your own for note taking, etc.
Not really. Business casual to casual is fine. We would suggest bringing a jacket, just in case. Oklahoma weather-- especially in February-- is anyone's guess.

Full refunds are available up to two (2) days prior to the event. We understand that "life happens," so if you have a situation that prevents you from attending, that falls within that time period, please contact us. We will work with you to come up with an agreeable solution.
