Founder of Turning Point to Speak at GC Luncheon

Dr. David Jeremiah will be the featured speaker at the Discipleship Ministries/Influence Music luncheon at the 2017 General Council.

Dr. David Jeremiah, the noted author, speaker, and pastor will be the featured speaker for the Discipleship Ministries/Influence Music luncheon to be held Aug. 9 at the 2017 General Council in Anaheim, California.

Jeremiah, who has served in San Diego as senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church since 1981, is the founder and voice of the daily radio program, Turning Point, which is offered on 2,200 radio stations worldwide. The program’s television companion is also accessible by an estimated 200 million viewers worldwide. 

"We are thrilled to have Dr. David Jeremiah as the keynote speaker for this year’s discipleship luncheon,” states Ryan Horn, director of Discipleship Ministries. “Dr. Jeremiah has dedicated his life to bringing greater awareness of God’s Word to the multitudes. His unique ability to communicate the Word of God appeals just as much to the unsaved as it does to those who are in a committed relationship with Christ.” 

The theme for the Discipleship Ministries/Influence Music luncheon is “The Importance of Biblical Literacy.” The luncheon, to be held Aug. 9 from 12-1:30 p.m. at the Anaheim Marriott, is value-priced at just $15 — but space is limited. Those interested who have not yet registered for General Council should simply add the luncheon to their General Council registration form; those who have already registered, call Convention Services at 417-862-2781, ext. 4052, to add the luncheon. 

“Dr. Jeremiah’s teaching is powerful, his stories are captivating, and his passion for the Word of God is contagious,” Horn says. “Come and be blessed!”
