Join us for the 5th annual Be Bold for Jesus Conference happening for the first time at the Spokane, Washington Convention Center. Be equipped and empowered to boldly share the Gospel with others. Featuring keynote speaker, Jeff Foxworthy, who has displayed bold faith in comedy without using any profanity. American Idol contestant and finalist, Danny Gokey, will be leading our inspirational Night of Worship Concert. This 3-day in-person conference will be packed full of additional speakers and artists including founder of the Ark Encounter, Ken Ham, pastor and comedian, Ted Cunningham, worship leader and Christian artist, Patrick Mayberry, and author and speaker, Alisa Childers. Reserve your tickets now before they sell out!


New to the 2023 Conference – Teen Breakout Sessions!

This year’s conference will also have teen breakout sessions for Friday, Saturday and Sunday with speakers and activities specially geared towards a younger audience. We believe it is equally important to equip not only parents but children with the tools to be able to share and defend their faith with their peers. We encourage you to bring your children, grades 6th – 12th, to be a part of this life changing event!

Why Attend the Bold Conference?

Now, more than ever, is critical for each individual to be sharing the Gospel of Jesus to everyone we encounter. Being politically correct has convinced us to hide our light under a bushel. But we should be talking about Jesus wherever we are, especially in our current culture where we are shutting God out of schools, businesses and society and going against what the Bible outlines for our lives. “Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,” Ephesians 6:19

According to a 2018 Barna research article, 36% of Christians believe they are NOT responsible for sharing their faith. Even more disturbing, 29% of Christians believe it is the role of the church to share the Gospel, not the individual Christians’ role.

Let’s come together to be equipped and empowered to go back to our mission field, wherever God has placed us, and boldly share the Good News. Jesus has commissioned each one of us in Matthew 28:19 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

What People Are Saying About the Conference


Be Bold For Jesus Conference Worship - I Am They


For pop worship band I AM THEY, believing in God’s faithfulness is an active exercise in trust. After years of member transition and internal uncertainty with how or even why to move forward, they are leaning on Hebrews 10:23 – “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who is promised is faithful.” The band – made up of Matt Hein (vocals, guitar), Abbie Parker, (vocals), Brandon Chase (vocals, guitar), Justin Shinn (keys) and Nicole Hickman (drums) – poured the challenges of the past, hope for the future and a newfound joy for the present into their third album, Faithful God. More than a collection of new songs, Faithful God is a look back and a look forward, a declaration of promises kept and promises yet to come.

Be Bold For Jesus Conference Speaker - Ken Ortize

Pastor Ken Ortize

His call to ministry began in his early twenties in northern California, where he served in a variety of settings teaching and preaching the gospel. From street witnessing to bible schools to overseas missions to local church ministry – Ken has a wealth of experience in Christian ministry. In 1983 he answered the call to pastor Calvary in Spokane, Washington. He has faithfully served this church for many years and his family is eternally grateful to the Lord for the opportunity to serve this beautiful church.

Mike serves as the President & CEO for C12 as well as serving on the Board of Directors. Mike joined C12 as a member in 2010 while serving as an executive pastor for a large church in Texas and owner of a healthcare strategy consulting group. In 2011 he exited his commitments to join the local C12 practice in San Antonio as an associate chair serving CEOs across that market. In 2013 he and a partner acquired the greater Central Texas region and stewarded it as it grew to a team of 8 full-time chairmen serving nearly 150 leaders. Mike is passionate about collaboration, strategic planning, Gospel initiatives and BHAG endeavors.

It was in 2004 that God first revealed to Mike the “sacred versus secular” divide he had been operating under and began to draw him into the adventure of living one life in Christ with work as worship, business as ministry and all of life as mission. Mike grew up in Alaska and met his wife (Jacqui) while in college at Trinity International University (TIU) in Chicago where they married in 2002. They have 2 daughters, Elayna and Sophia.

Mike is passionate about discipleship, Gospel-driven collaborations, foster care, and integrated missional strategies. He believes C12 represents a breathtaking platform to see leaders, families, businesses, communities and eventually nations flourish through ongoing transformation in Christ.

Be Bold For Jesus Conference Speaker - Mark Gungor

Mark Gungor

Author of Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage®

When Mark Gungor conducted his first marriage seminar, he did so for one reason—because somebody had to do it, and no one else was reaching the couples in his area. The enthusiastic response he received from his first audience was just the tip of the iceberg. Today, he is one of the most sought-after international speakers on marriage and family. Each year thousands of couples attend his Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage® seminars. Mark’s candid and comedic approach uses unforgettable illustrations and the power of laughter to teach proven principles that are guaranteed to strengthen any marriage.

“I love to inspire people’s lives with truth and humor. There are a lot of performers that make people laugh, and there are a lot of speakers who give solid principles for living. I want to do both,” Mark says. His take on marriage issues is refreshingly free of both churchy and psychological lingo. “Our secular culture over-romanticizes marriage and our Christian culture over-spiritualizes it. The reality is that relationships between men and women are very down to earth,” Mark comments. “Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage® is about helping couples get it right, get along, have fun, and achieve a successful marriage.”

Mark is Senior Pastor of Celebration Church—a multi-site church with four campuses across Wisconsin, and the CEO of Laugh Your Way America. He balances his pastoral duties with a rigorous travel schedule conducting marriage seminars and speaking at churches, as well as civic and corporate events. Mark is one of the most requested speakers for the U.S. Army and his Laugh Your Way materials are used extensively by Chaplains and military personnel.

Mark has also been featured on national broadcasts and publications such as Focus on the Family, Life Today, ABC News, the Washington Times and Newsweek. His “Better Marriage Minute” is heard on 250 radio stations nationwide, and his radio/TV program, The Mark Gungor Show, is streamed worldwide on the Internet, and seen weekly on TBN-Africa and Sky Angel.

Be Bold For Jesus Conference Speaker - Austin & Lindsay

Austin & Lindsey

Worship Team

Austin and Lindsey Adamec are a Jacksonville, Florida-based husband and wife team who share a passion for gathering people of all walks of life and creating a safe space for intimate worship. 

After living in Nashville, TN for several years, pursuing individual artist careers, they felt God calling them back to Florida, to work together as worship pastors at Christ’s Church, Jacksonville. After their move they saw this new season of  ministry expand beyond the church walls, into maximum security prison campuses and public pavilions where there were many attempts to shut down their worship by religious protestors. It was in those moments they felt God showing them how there is no space He won’t invade.  

“With this revelation, we questioned ourselves: what if our cherished house hangs turned into a sanctuary for the presence of Jesus? What if church wasn’t just on a Sunday but any moment someone walked through our front door?”

In late 2018, Austin and Lindsey opened up their home for monthly gatherings, inviting people from across their community to come break bread and worship together. These gatherings have been a life source for many people across the greater Jacksonville area, growing beyond expectations, bringing with it, a stronger sense of community and belonging, and a greater passion for the presence of God.

These meetings have sparked a new sound for Austin and Lindsey. Their album “Sound Of The House” is out now.

The Be Bold for Jesus is blessed to have them as the worship team for all 3-days of our conference!
