Think Like Christ Ministries is inviting you to come join us for an awesome men’s conference. No extra fluff. Just some good food and great challenging preaching from Gods Word. We are excited to have Joel Willoughby with Brains and Bibles and Scott Owen with Baptist Church Planters

Whether you are an ardent follower of Jesus or have a passing interest in religion; you will be challenged, strengthened and encouraged. And if that does not appeal to you, come for the Feast of Meats and Chili Cook-Off. No men’s conference can be complete without a giant pile of meat for lunch.


The conference starts at 9AM and ends at 4PM and is intended for men and high school aged young men. If you want to come early, we will be providing breakfast at 8AM. The Feast of Meats will be for lunch and will also be included.  Along with the Feast of Meats we will also be adding a Chili Cook-Off this year.  If you want to participate in the Chili Cook-Off, check the box on the registration form so we know how many to expect.

What better way can you spend a Saturday then worshiping, growing, and eating meat? Early-registration is only $10 dollars a person and includes both meals and all sessions so bring all your friends, men’s groups, older sons, and anyone else who needs to come.
Meet Our Speakers

Joel Willoughby – Brains & Bibles

Joel accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior from sin and the 2nd death by grace through faith when he was a young boy. He spent a few of his teenage years living for himself until God humbled him and brought him back to His service. Joel attended Pensacola Christian College and earned a BA in Bible with a Pastoral concentration and Minor in Greek in 2009. That same year Joel married Danielle and the Lord blessed them with Roger in 2011 and Isaiah in 2013. Joel earned a MA in Biblical Studies from Faith Theological Seminary in 2015 and began to teach Jr. High and High School Bible classes for Ankeny Christian Academy. In the Lord’s providence, He took Joel’s wife Danielle to her heavenly home on her 29th birthday in August 2017. By God’s grace, Joel married Beth in November 2018 and the Lord blessed them with Valerie in October 2019. Ever since September 2004, when Joel was 18, after high school, he has been faithfully pursuing God with all of his heart, body, soul, and mind. Joel’s wife and children are great supporters and walk with God as well. Joel began Brains and Bibles officially in March 2020 and since then many souls have been affected for eternity.
