From his website:  "For me as a human being, everything is about Jesus and Father and Holy Spirit, about relationships, and to live is to participate in an adventure of faith which can only be experienced inside one day’s worth of grace at a time. "

Why this Event?

In the post-Covid and postmodern era, we believe we stand on the precipice of a great spiritual shift. More than ever, people are hungering for an authentic expression of faith and a true connection with their Creator and one another. This event is prayerfully hosted to speak into this moment and to catalyze regional transformation.

We want to equip believers from all walks of life and from all backgrounds to grow in the joy of the gospel, and to experience the enlivening power of the Spirit.

We also welcome seekers and skeptics alike for a time that we believe will bring great encouragement and a fresh perspective on faith.
