World Challenge announced today that it will host the 2013 Expect Church Leadership Conference: Renewing Your Passion for Christ at Times Square Church on April 24 and 25. Organized to inspire and infuse Christian leaders with a new and fresh faith, the Expect Conference also seeks to provide encouragement and support to pastors and others in church leadership positions who encounter unique challenges in their ministries. Conference speakers include noted Christian authors and pastors who will share a message of hope and revival to refresh and strengthen ministers across denominations.
Among the featured speakers is Pastor Gary Wilkerson, son of David Wilkerson, Founding Pastor of Times Square Church and author of The Cross and the Switchblade. Gary Wilkerson began preaching at the age of 16, was a youth pastor by age 19, and planted his first church when he was 23 years old. He is currently Lead Pastor of The Springs Church, in Colorado Springs, CO and President of World Challenge. With the passing of his father, Gary Wilkerson now continues the work that was started in 2002 when the very first pastor’s conference was held. His first book, The Divine Intercessor, was released in 2002.
“Pastors labor day in and day out to bring God’s love to those in need,” said Gary Wilkerson. “This ministry has been established just for pastors and ministry leaders; to strengthen them and bring a fresh anointing of God's love and divine healing into their ministries, families, churches and ultimately, the entire nation.”
