As we call you to meet with us, and together, we call unto God, we believe with great conviction that His Spirit will release you to carry the sound of His freedom to your own cities and in turn, bring transformation and impact. We were born for this.
Last year, JCLA was one of the most impactful gatherings I have ever been a part of and each year the momentum seems to build. I can’t wait to see what happens this summer. Won’t you join us in releasing the sound of freedom over a waiting world.
