Jeff and I head out for Dallas in the morning for the C3 conference and I am pumped. First of all, I love Texas food. TexMex ROCKS! Secondly, this is probably the most diverse group of church leaders that I have been around in one setting. Here is the lineup.
Ed Young -Fellowship Church – Dallas, TX – Ed is a creative leader that is a pace setter in the church world.
Bishop T.D. Jakes – The Potter’s House – Dallas, TX – I really look up to this guy. He is an awesome teacher and communicator. Bishop Jakes is a ministry visionary, successful entrepreneur and spiritual sheherd to millions around the globe. He pastors The Potter’s House, a multiracial, life-filled, non-denominational church with a passion for active outreach initiatives.
Brian Houston – Hillsong Church – Sydney, Australia – Brian Houston and his wife Bobbie started Hillsong Church in 1983 in what was then a school hall in the Baulkham Hills, Sydney. It is now considered the largest church in Australia, incorporating two major worship centres, a citywide network of connect groups, extension services across the city and growing congregations in London, Kiev and Paris.
Tommy Barnett – Phoenix First Assembly of God – Phoenix, Arizona – Tommy Barnett is the Senior Pastor of one of the fastest growing churches in America, Phoenix First Assembly of God, in Phoenix, Arizona. The church is known as The Church with a Heart. Phoenix First is a church committed to reaching the city, country and world for God.
In 1994, as a result of the invitation from the Southern California District of the Assemblies of God, Tommy Barnett launched the Los Angeles Dream Center as a home missions project. And today the ministry epitomizes Pastor Barnett’s quote, “Find a need and fill it, find a hurt and heal it.”
Mac Richard – Lake Hills Church – Austin, TX – Mac Richard is the founding and Senior Pastor of Lake Hills Church in Austin, Texas. Beginning with a group of fifteen people, Lake Hills has grown to one of the largest churches in Austin. Mac’s passion is to reach people with Christ’s message of hope by creatively using today’s tools and technology.
Perry Noble – NewSpring Church – Anderson, South Carolina – Perry Noble is the founding and senior pastor of NewSpring Church in Anderson, South Carolina. This is a church that we track with closely and Perry is a good friend of our ministry.
I can’t wait!!!
