Band - Matt Robinson & The Embassy Worship Team

The Embassy Worship team exists as a family of worshipers who strive to create life changing encounters with God!  To walk with God and each other is a joy and blessing for us.  


Speakers -  Miguel & Lisa Sanchez

Miguel & Lisa Sanchez have a passion to see people, of all ages and walks of life, understand their immense, incredible value, and to live a life that makes this world a better place. They have shared this message in many different countries of the world and in different settings. Part of their message is to equip people with keys that will help them to get rid of False Labels (those things that are not true about their value). False Labels can stick to us by the MESSAGES people communicate to us or that we receive through circumstances that happen to us.  In helping people understand their immense value, it becomes only natural to empower people to communicate immense value to others. The Sanchezes have numerous stories of lives, families, and schools that have been completely transformed by receiving and implementing the principles taught in their program.

Band - Heart & Home ( Jedidiah & Jenniah Armstrong)

We are passionate about seeing people  live with their hearts fully alive and connected to the presence of God. It is in that place that we find our home in Him.

We live to worship God with every part of our lives through loving Him and loving people. Our heart is to equip others to come into the fullness of who God made them to be.

We love to teach people how to move into a deeper place of worship and intimacy with God.  We believe that everyone has the ability to worship God and know Him, that they will come alive and experience His goodness and blessing in their lives, and that we can do all of this with passion, humility, and excellence.
