With great transparency and humility and extraordinary energy, John Simontacchi shares his extraordinary journey of transformation. John describes the numerous times that God’s amazing hand of grace rescued him from life-threatening situations and guided his career, even before he really even “believed” in God. Most dramatically, John explains how the escalation of his career was accompanied by the slow deterioration of his heart until in his 60’s he was given just a few months to live. Once again, God’s amazing grace provided a 20-year old heart for his aging body, and with that heart came direction toward a new career. John Simontacchi was given a new heart both figuratively and literally, and the message of this transformed man is to trust and surrender.
Although he generally hates talking about himself or his past, Terry Wilcox humbly and transparently shares the amazing journey of his life with Jesus. Terry explains the decisions that set the course for his life–accepting Jesus, surrendering his life to the Holy Spirit and telling God he would embrace any opportunity God provided to talk about Him–and he reveals the incredible adventures that were in God’s plan for a “farm boy from Western Pennsylvania who barely got through college”. Terry also shares the conclusions of a life lived fully with Jesus–God is faithful and His grace is sufficient.

On the eve of the release of his new book The New Copernicans: Millennials and the Survival of the Church, John Seel shares the amazing story of how he came to study Millennials, the courageous story of how he learned about Millennials and the inspiring story of how the book became a reality. Most importantly, however, he shares what he came to learn about Millennials, particularly how misunderstood they are by Boomers. While Dr. Seel believes that Millennials hold the key to the life of the church, he is also convinced that the “frame” through which Millennials view the world has the potential to bring the rest of us closer to the way of Jesus.
