 Speaker Sessions

Gary Thomas - Author

Every Body Matters

Gary Thomas

Bestselling author and speaker (Sacred Marriage) Gary Thomas makes the connection between body care, discipleship and worship.

As an expert in marital relationships, Gary also addresses how our body care impacts intimacy in marriage. This session contains content that some might feel is unsuitable for children.

Dr. Michael Brown

Breaking the Stronghold of Food

Dr. Michael Brown

Author and syndicated radio host Dr Michael Brown (In The Line of Fire) shares his story of food addiction and the freedom he has experienced since surrendering his body to Christ. In his talk, Dr Brown addresses the life experiences that formed his eating imbalances, his failures at addressing them, the cost to his worldwide ministry and the pathway he found to consistent body stewardship practices. Engaging, honest, and humorous, Dr Brown brings passion to this session that springs from his own life story.

Gary Wilkerson

Moving Beyond the Superficial: Finding  Satisfaction in the Triune God

Gary Wilkerson

As a pastor and church planter Gary Wilkerson knows well the relational, spiritual and physical strains of ministry in the local church. As the President and CEO of worldwide relief organization World Challenge, he’s experienced the challenges of worldwide travel and infusing the gospel into charitable endeavors. As the son of pastor, author and world renowned Christian figure David Wilkerson (The Cross and the Switchblade), he understands the importance of legacy and the weight of expectations.

In our culture, it is easy to focus on more superficial issues – food, fitness, finances, and to seek God only as it relates to meeting these felt needs. Gary explains that while this is natural, God is using felt needs to draw us into a deeper and more intimate relationship with Him.
