We are excited to have Ricky Jenkins and Kenny Luck speaking for us this year in Davenport!
Ricky Jenkins was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi. He trusted Jesus Christ in high school before attending Mississippi College earning a degree in Political Science and a place in the Hall of Fame. He credits his college years as life changing times in which he accepted the call to pastoral ministry where he’s been serving in that role for the last 15 years. After college, Ricky continued to work in ministry with a myriad of churches and community organizations. He’s enjoyed traveling the country preaching God’s word. Ricky also began working for a social justice ministry and organized clergy to amplify the issues of the working poor. As a community organizer, he partnered with hundreds of Oakland Bay Area clergy and led rallies, marches, and vigils on behalf of the disenfranchised poor. After his years in Oakland, Ricky moved to Memphis, TN, to serve as a Campus Pastor for Fellowship Memphis Church. Fellowship is a gospel-centered, multi-ethnic church bringing together people of all backgrounds for the worship of God. Ricky served in Memphis from 2008 to 2013. While in Memphis, Ricky met, pursued, and married his lovely wife April! Ricky and April envision planting a church in his hometown of Jackson, MS, someday. They are currently in Chicago continuing his education. Ricky & April love pouring into other men and women in their discipleship groups, hosting friends and couples that are new to the community, and getting out of the country to serve the nations as often as the Lord allows.

Keynote Title: YOU AND ME
Description: Wrong assumptions in relationships are dangerous. You think one thing. The other person thinks another. Then your assumptions collide in big hot mess! It’s a classic case of bad intel leading to bad choices which leads to disastrous outcomes. When it comes to God you don’t want to be operating on assumptions because they have eternal consequences! Thankfully, God takes the guesswork out of it. He says this is YOU and this is ME. I am the POTTER and you are the CLAY. That’s how this works.
Equipping Seminar Title: Sleeping Giant
