MOG23 is March 4, 2023

Welcome to Men of God Conference!



Christmas has passed and it's time to start thinking of our 25th  Annual 2023 Men of God Conference. It will be on March 4, 2023 at Calvary Baptist Church in Bellefontaine, OH. We are excited about the opportunity to encourage men from around the great state of Ohio who will come seeking to know more about their relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ and how to fight for purity in their lives as they serve Him. 

Main Sessions with Nate Danser

Breakout Seminars

We have four breakout sessions to support the main speaker. Each will bring fresh practical ideas on how to live a life of purity as a man of God.

Passionately Pursuing My Wife:

Making her the object of my affection
David Sellars - Vows to Keep Ministries

David and Tracy Sellars started ministering to marriages over 20 years ago and started VowsToKeep in 2012 as a response to God’s calling on their lives. They are passionate about bringing the truth of God’s Word to the hardest aspects of marriage. David and Tracy do this through weekend marriage events, biblical marriage counseling, and a weekly half-hour radio broadcast on 14 stations covering 11M potential listeners across Ohio, Indiana and Michigan.  They also have a romantic getaway on their property for couples to have a time of renewal. Seeing couple’s hearts turn toward Christ and each other is their greatest joy.

David was born and raised in northern Wyoming and graduated from engineering school in 2001. He currently works part time leading R&D, for a company who provides advanced solutions to healthcare across the US and Canada. While a career in tech has provided for a growing family, David’s passion for marriages that reflect Jesus’ love is what drives him. 

Building a Disciplined Life on the Word:

Developing a consistent pattern of time in God's Word to avoid the pitfalls of life
Daniel O'Kane - Founding Pastor of Bellefontaine Grace Church

I came to faith after 22 years of wayward living. Since that time I have been amazed that the loving-kindness of my Savior and the real relationship that I get to have with the King. In and through His word I have found a purpose and meaning to life that I never found outside of a relationship with Christ. My life is marked by my Savior and I have a great desire to know Him and live for Him daily as I am called to. 

Not Going Life Alone :

Knowing iron sharpens iron, every man needs someone to keep him spiritually sharp
Brandon Slifer - Worship Pastor at Calvary Bellefontaine
Brandon is from Tipp City, OH, and was saved at the young age of 7 years old. He later surrendered to vocational ministry as a middle school student and went on to graduate from Cedarville University in 2020 with a B.A. in Worship, Youth Ministry, and Christian Education. Brandon was ordained to the Gospel ministry in August 2020 and has recently begun pursuing a Master of Divinity at Cedarville with an emphasis in biblical care and counseling.
He began his role as Worship Pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in January of 2023.

Setting Up Your Son for Spiritual Success:

Knowing they are watching and imitating, an intentional strategy for discipling sons and others.
