Over the years I have learned so much from attending Catalyst one days and conferences. They are like the Lamborghini of Christian leadership events. I am so stoked to have been asked to speak at an upcoming event–Catalyst West in Orange County, California April 16-17! Register here.
Getting to do an O2 event in San Diego was a dream come true. In all the speaking I have done in California, up until this event I have never done anything in SD. Pastor Ray Bentley and Maranatha Chapel were gracious to host the O2 and their staff went all out, not only as hosts, but also in promoting the event. Our team really enjoyed working with the staff at this amazing church.
The final stop on any tour tends to be extra special and San Diego did not disappoint. Seeing a full house in a city where we haven’t really been on the radar before was thrilling, but even more insanely great was watching so many people give their lives to Jesus. The atmosphere in the room was so full of energy and faith and it was great fun preaching to such hungry hearts. I can’t wait to come back to this great city!
We give anyone who wants a chance to share their story in a video box if they have been impacted through the event. Here is one of those stories from this event:
“The O2 Experience inspired me to stay pure and it’s just completely overwhelming to me that I get a second chance. I was raised by non-believers and taught that it was okay to have sex whenever I wanted before I get married. And today I can stand and say, ‘Ya know what? I will stay pure.’ Never in my entire life did I ever think that I’d say I would accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior or that I’d stand for purity.”
