The Apostle Paul uses the imagery of a “soldier” to describe the unique role God has given men. We will examine various aspects of what it is to soldier for Christ, in our own hearts, in our family, our church, and in the world. Join us at Ironmen Summit Owasso as we give special attention to the kind of devotedness, self-discipline, and “under command” kind of lives that are required to fulfill this role.

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.

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.
IS THERE A DRESS CODE?
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.
