Meet the Presenters


Our presenters will help you to reimagine what community engagement can look like by introducing new technologies, social service events, community networking tools, as well as traditional and progressive evangelistic methods. With seminars and workshops on church growth and evangelism, we will leave you with a ministry toolkit for God to move your congregation from the sideline to the front-line of Kingdom growth using communication and cutting edge resources for ministry, leadership, and Biblical teachings presented by experts who are not just reading about it, but living it in daily ministry.

The Power of Words

Words have power; they can either help or hurt, inspire or discourage. They are one of Gods greatest gifts given to us. You will hear the true tale of two teachers and how one used words to discourage and the other used words to encourage a second grader that went on to serve three Presidents at the White House. Learn how your words have power.

Monday,  10:00 a.m. & Tuesday 10:00 a.m. (Repeated) – Topaz 1

 “You Too Can Make a Difference in Your Community

After just one year in his community of Portland Oregon, this chaplain has been the first in his denomination to be asked to have special prayers for the mayor and major community events in a city that prides itself of being the most secular city in America. A year later he received the highest and most prestigious award given out from the city of Portland: The Martin Luther King Jr. Lifetime Achievement Award.  Cities and communities are ripe for true, no strings attached, spiritual leadership and involvement. Learn how you too can be a spiritual player in your community.
