We are busy planning for our upcoming “Go Conference” and we are extremely excited about what God is going to do during that weekend. Last week we received word of a change that we needed to make in our schedule. Bob Roberts is going to, unfortunately, miss our conference. We are in the process of rescheduling him to come and speak with us next year. Bob has worked with us, however, to connect us with the speaker that we are excited to announce as our new keynote speaker. Dave Gibbons is the Pastor of NewSong Church in Irvine, CA. Dave is an incredible young leader who started NewSong in 1994. NewSong has grown rapidly and is now a multi-campus church with campuses in California, Texas, Mexico City and Bangkok.
Dave has contributed to books like Unchristian and is about to see his first book, The Monkey and the Fish, released through Zondervan. Dave has a passion for seeing communities transformed through the Gospel. Dave also has a passion for the poor which is seen not only in his leadership at NewSong, but also through his service on the board of directors for Worldvision.
Although I’m dissapointed that Bob Roberts can’t be with us, I am absolutely excited about hosting Dave with us next month! If you aren’t already planning to be with us, you need to take advantage of having a free conference with men like Dave Gibbons and Jerry Rankin leading us as we think through God’s calling to be living His mission in our communities and around the world.
Below is a video that highlights Dave’s passion in his church. I hope it blesses you!
