This wonderful event will feature special guest singer, songwriter, and minister Kyle Matthews. Kyle Matthews is the creative artist behind See For Yourself Music and an ordained minister serving a local congregation. He spent two decades working as a recording artist and staff songwriter for BMG and Universal Publishing companies in Nashville, TN, during which time his songs were recorded by over 70 major artists of different genres and won the Dove, Stellar, GMA and numerous ASCAP and BMI awards. His song "We Fall Down," recorded most notably on a multi-platinum release by Donnie McClurkin, won numerous music industry awards, including the Dove Award for Traditional Gospel Song on the Year, the Stellar award for Song of the Year, and ASCAP's 2002 Christian Song of the Year. 

Kyle will be leading in worship on Thursday night and a breakout session on Friday morning. 


In addition, we welcome special guests, Shane and Dianne McNary, CBF Field Personnel from Slovakia, who will lead a breakout session on Friday morning on Worship as Mission.
