Our next iCONNECT Ministry Leadership Summit will be held Sunday, August 13, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. You will not want to miss this Summit as ALL iCONNECT Volunteer Leadership Teams meet together to prepare for the 2017–2018 Bible study year! All current volunteers, as well as those interested in serving, will kick off our time together in the Worship Center with special guest, Christian comedian John Crist!
With over 150 million video views, comedian and viral sensation John Crist is the next big thing in standup comedy. Whether you know him from viral videos like “Millenial International,” “Road Rage in the Church Parking Lot,” or BuzzFeed’s “Signs You Grew Up Christian,” Crist has solidified his comedic prowess with over 200 live shows a year.
Named by ChurchLeaders.com as one of the “Top Five Comics to Watch,” Crist has shared the stage with some of the best in the business, including Jeff Foxworthy, Tim Hawkins, and Anjelah Johnson. Hawkins, who Crist has performed with over 100 times says, “This guy ain’t no opener. John Crist is the real deal.” Parents with young children may recognize Crist as a voice actor on the popular children’s radio show Adventures in Odyssey.
When asked where he finds the inspiration to write jokes, Crist says, “Shoot, I grew up in Georgia. My dad is a pastor, and I was the third of eight homeschooled children. Coming from a background like that, how do you NOT write jokes?! In high school, my parents made me get a job at Chick-fil-A. How much more stereotypically Christian can you get?”
Following the opening session in the Worship Center, all ministry teams will spend valuable time training for their specific leadership role. It’s also a time for those interested in serving to find out more about how to get involved. There is no charge for this event; and childcare will be provided for infants–5th grade. To make childcare reservations, contact Kim Cavanaugh in the AdventureLand Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 281.481.7244 by Wednesday, August 9.
