Walt & Betty Brock
Walt and Betty Brock co-founded Ironwood in 1973. Walt, from California, and Betty, from Tennessee, met at Bob Jones University and were married in 1966. While teaching and serving as a youth pastor, he developed a passion for camp ministry. For over 40 years, Walt’s vision of a camp ministry in the desert has led Ironwood in reaching young people for the Lord Jesus Christ, strengthening families, and serving local churches. Walt speaks and fundraises frequently, and serves on the boards of several ministries; Betty also enjoys speaking and serves as his administrative assistant. Our staff are thankful for their godly example and wisdom. They have four children and 12 grandchildren.
