Our brudder Peter Hawkins shares the basis for his confidence that God hears and answers our prayers (although not necessarily in the way we hoped). From miraculous healings to winning a “David v. Goliath” legal battle to protect his son against a powerful institution, Peter has seen the awesome power of prayer personally in his life. He also describes the important role that the prayer and support of NCS Energy Groups has played in his life. It is an inspiring story.
Bob Muzikowski shares one of the most fascinating and inspiring personal testimonies you will ever hear. He shares the incredible journey from alcohol and cocaine addiction, dramatic bar fights and time in jail to a life devoted to lifting kids out of desperate situations and forming them into “leaders of character empowered by the hope that is in Jesus Christ.” In his humorous style, Bob also challenges us to hold each other accountable for the “hoarding” mentality that accumulates multiple homes, cars, boats and other toys while kids in the inner city are struggling to get an education. This talk will make you laugh out loud and reflect deep inside.
