Keynote Speaker:

Ken Helser

Ken Helser will be speaking on "Staying Close to God through Your Workday Starting with God Time and Journaling"

A native Carolinian, Ken is a musician-song writer, artist, writer, and storyteller.  Ken simply refers to himself as a communicator.  Once a successful recording star and performer with several hit records, the “do your own thing” lifestyle of party, sex, alcohol and drugs of the 60’s caused him to ask, “Is this all there is?”  The turning point came when smoking dope, practicing yoga, he picked up a Bible and read, “Why do you work for that which never satisfies… hear, and your soul shall live.” 

Isaiah 55:2 & 3  

Ken did hear God’s voice, when the Lord said, “You cannot have two masters.  Your God is music.”  Ken said enough and gave Christ Jesus the reigns to his heart and the rest of his life.  Now, almost 46 years later, he and his family reside at a small retreat ministry in Sophia, NC, called A Place in the Heart.  They travel all over the world proclaiming that life begins by hearing God’s voice, and that God wants to speak even more than man wants to hear.  The most powerful thing about Ken’s life is his willingness to be honest and transparent, which is real Christianity, not religion.  Ken is open about his past and says that though once his wife was healed of cancer, the greatest miracle of all is healing the pain of rejection in the human heart.  

In his own word, Ken states, “I’m an artist because my Father let me see His beauty; I’m a songwriter because He let me hear His song; I’m a teacher because He let me hear the secrets of His heart.  You see, it’s not really me, but Christ in me–– the Hope of Glory!”

David L. Winters

David L. Winters will be speaking on “Taking God to Work - The Keys to Ultimate Success” based on the book of that name which he has co-authored with Steve Reynolds.

Winters is an author, speaker and humorist from Kensington, Maryland.  He worked for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Navy for more than thirty years, serving in management functions for the last twenty years.  He specializes in helping others integrate faith with all aspects of life.  His first book, Sabbatical of the Mind: The Journey from Anxiety to Peace, won several awards.
