Hillsong has a history of strong conferences, with past guest including Reverend T.D. Jakes, Craig Groeschel, and Justin Bieber's pastor Judah Smith. Judah Smith will be in attendance again this year, joined by Bill Hybels, Louie Giglio, Robert Madu, and Steven Furtick. The Hillsong worship team are joined this year by guest worship leaders Brian and Jenn Johnson of Bethel Church, Matt Redman, and Lecrae.
Insiders report that the opening festivities will be "unbelievable". As a participant of the conference last year, I can say with certainty it will be a week to remember. No matter your denomination, or even your religious stance, this event is guaranteed to challenge, equip, and empower you for what lies ahead in your personal story.
There is still time to register for the conference, but if you aren't able to make it to the entire event, the night sessions are free. Beginning at 5 pm each night the doors of Allphones arena will be open to the public. A tip: get there as early as you can.
Coinciding with Hillsong Conference 2014 will be Young & Free Conference for teens and Kidsong for children.
And about the headliner? This year's conference is titled No Other Name, and its headliner will be Jesus Christ himself. That, if for no other reason, is enough to rock up. See you there
