The Young Businessmen of Tulsa:

Is a non-profit organization designed for young entrepreneurs and businessmen ages 18-45. It’s a membership/program for those who want to better themselves and find their purpose, so they can then help others, so they can then change the world.

The YBT is focused on connecting, inspiring, and developing young business leaders to find and pursue their purpose.


The principle is simple, create leaders for a lifetime by building solid foundations in a person’s business and life by focusing on the mind, body, and spirit; our goal is to help each person succeed in all areas of their life so they can then lead others and fulfill their life’s purpose.


YBT creates leaders for a lifetime!

Leaders are made by not what they do but by whom they produce. Jesus never built buildings but built people. Each person was born with a gift of leadership, a God given gift to become great! It’s YBT’s job to show each young businessman that the seed they carry has a giant tree inside waiting to come forth so that the world might partake of their fruit.

By default the YBT is an incubator for Tulsa’s future leaders, businessmen, and entrepreneurs.


YBT meets once a month for lunch at 11:40am on the second Monday of each month. 

Luncheons are located at Oklahoma Joe's BBQ at 6175 E. 61st St, Tulsa, OK 74136 (Park Plaza off 61st & Sheridan). Lunch is $25 ($7 of each ticket goes to the monthly charity project) and is open to the public. Anyone is allowed to attend and join. Registered YBT members eat for free and are allowed to bring one free guest.


At about 12:20pm our keynote speaker will take the podium and finish around 1:00pm. Members and guests will get the opportunity to hear from a great speaker, meet with like-minded people, and give back to our community by contributing to our monthly (charity) pay-it-forward project.


If YBT members and attendees fully participate, read, and apply themselves they will become leaders who know who they are and why they are here. They become people of purpose, character, and integrity; Christ-like leaders who positively influence culture, and the marketplace.

But it’s not until you become a paid member that the true opportunity occurs.


As a member of YBT ($250 a year) each person will get the opportunity to partake in a once in a lifetime opportunity. Opportunities to learn, grow, and give back, building a launching pad for each person.


Some of those opportunities are:


- Mentorship from Tulsa business leaders

- Attend YBT monthly luncheons for free

- Exclusive and powerful relationships

- Attend private events, seminars, and trips

- Partner with like-minded leaders

- Help cultivate vision and growth for Tulsa

- Held accountable to see your goals fulfilled.

- Opportunities to be elected for leadership roles inside YBT.

YBT also offers group memberships for companies and their employees. Learn more about membership and click here: Sign me up!

The YBT is a non-profit organization founded on Biblical based principles and ultimately encourages each person to find his purpose and salvation in Jesus Christ.


We are a non-denominational organization, focused specifically on the next generation of businessmen and leaders.
