Welcome to the 2016 Born to Win Conference in JAX

Re-posted from Examiner Feb. 8, 2016

Impact Church wants to remind Jacksonville, FL, and the surrounding areas, that we were “Born to Win.”  As Jacksonville reels from recent shootings, and a rise in violence, including a dramatic upsurge in murders, Pastor George Davis is reminding the city that ‘violence isn’t our destiny;’ in fact, we were “Born to Win.”  That’s the name of the innovative leadership conference being held at Jacksonville’s Impact Church.

This year’s conference features a new generation of leadership experts and church leaders including: Keith Butler, Hajj Flemings, Dexter Howard, Jeremy Pearsons, Corey Williams, as well as a night of worship with Byron Cage (see lineup below).  This year’s conference promises to give Jacksonville residents a new perspective on transformation.  As George Davis states, “Now is the time to shake off the gloom of defeat, the shadow of discouragement, and the heaviness of disappointment.  This is the hour to break out of your comfort zone.”

Pastor Davis feels strongly that these new voices in leadership have a message for the men and women of Jacksonville and beyond, and he’s setting the stage for a remarkable event.  The theme this year is: “Transformation – Becoming All God Created You to Be!”  In spite of what we see in the headlines and on the evening news, “Born to Win” will pull back the curtains and show the city what God believes is possible.

Impact Church has been a vital part of Jacksonville since 1996.  The church has expanded under the leadership of Pastor Davis to include eleven other churches and is still growing.  In addition, the 70,000 square foot facility houses a private school, and many vital ministry and social services outreaches to the Jacksonville area.  You may have noticed the recent disclosure about Impact Church getting ready for a new facility.  Check back to see more details about the new church.
