AWAKENING CONFERENCE TURNS TEN AND WILL CELEBRATE WITH BROADCAST PARTNER, DAYSTAR TV NETWORK
Due to larger audience demand, Awakening Conference is moving to the Dunkin Donuts Center in downtown Providence, RI
SMITHFIELD, Rhode Island – June 16, 2016 – Awakening Conference, an annual three day event with today’s most prolific youth pastors, speakers and worship bands, turns 10 years old this year. To commemorate this historic milestone, Dallas-based Christian Television Network, Daystar, will be broadcasting the event. With viewership that covers the globe, the addition of the network will increase the potential viewing audience to more than two billion people worldwide.
Awakening Conference is also moving to the Dunkin Donuts Center in downtown Providence, Rhode Island on June 30th, July 1st and 2nd and features world class speakers and bands. Speaker line up includes: Rich Wilkerson, Jr., John Gray, Chad and Julia Veach, Jude Fouquier, Jordan Boyce and Levi Lusko. Bands include: Elevation Worship, Andy Mineo, Social Club, and Awakening Worship.
From its inception in 2007 with 250 attendees to today, the Awakening Conference has continued to grow annually and now is expecting over 6,000 to attend. Awakening isn’t a conference, it’s a movement: a movement born out of the local church for other local churches. “We’re building something to last in a region that needs the Church now more than ever,” Awakening Conference founder, Jordan Boyce said.
“I’m inspired by the passionate pursuit of Jesus that’s so evident in the leadership of the Awakening Conference. For those concerned about this next generation, don’t be,” says Marcus Lamb, Founder and President of the Daystar Television Network. “The Lord is raising up young people who will take the fight to the enemy and advance His Kingdom across the earth. This event is an amazing example of that, and I’m honored that Daystar gets the privilege of sharing it with the world.”
The purpose of the Awakening Conference is to bring the hope of Jesus Christ to people and train youth pastors for the local church. “The secret of Awakening Conference is that it’s an overflow of our ministry and what comes out of our church, New Life Worship Center. We have the same people serving in café and greeting, leading worship, selling merch, DJing, we just get to do it on a bigger scale. It’s a testament to the consistency of the people who serve this local church,” Boyce added.
Tickets for the Awakening Conference are still available in remaining sections, all are welcome. For more information on ticket prices and availability visit: awakeningconference.com.
