Rewired reaches men from all backgrounds and interests. These differences 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: First, a love for Christ and desire to be men of God who influence their world; second, to find the right next step or direction for their relationship with God; and third, to find and build godly friendships with other men.

Lead Pastor - Lawton, First Baptist Church
Mike grew up in the small town of Elgin, Oklahoma. His father was a full-blood Cherokee and his mother was Comanche and Kiowa. Though he comes from a proud Native heritage, his family was ravaged by alcohol and drug addiction. As a “teenage mom,” Mike’s mother was in and out of his life and would eventually pass away at the age of 40 due to an alcohol related illness. Mike’s father was completely absent from his life.
Through all of the turmoil, pain and abandonment, there was hope. God put people in Mike’s life that would love him unconditionally and model the love of Jesus Christ for him. It was that love and example that would lead him to give his life to the Lord on November 1, 1990. It became clear to Mike that God had been with him through the storms of his life and that each and every circumstance was instrumental in shaping God’s plan for him. Mike has been called to preach the love, hope and comfort that can only come from the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Mike seeks to honor God and teach Scripture to all people. Mike combines deep and practical teaching of Scripture with relevant humor, stories, and principles for life change. God has gifted Mike with sensitivity to the Holy Spirit that leads him to understand the needs of his audience and to say exactly what they need to hear through the truth of God’s Word. He inspires to provoke a passion for Scripture in the hearts and minds of people everywhere. As Mike explains, “God has given me a clear, passionate vision to fulfill the calling of Colossians 1:28, to present everyone perfect in Christ.”

For the past four years I have had the privilege to serve as the Worship Pastor at Community Baptist in Coweta, OK. My greatest honor has been being married to my wife of five years, Alix. Together we have the most incredible daughters, Georgia and Norah. I love spending time with my family and friends, drinking all the coffee, and rooting for my Chicago Cubs. My prayer for worship is that we would know God truly and out of the overflow of our heart, respond to him for who He is and what he has done for us.
“Let the word of Christ dwell richly among you, in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another through psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.” Colossians 3:16
Our theme this year is “The Three”
Who are the three men that know you the best and challenge you to be a better man of God? Both David and Jesus had three men in their inner circle.
We each need men who will live out Proverbs 17:17.
