“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” - Ecclesiastes 3:11
Turning Point is a one-day conference designed to help jr. high, high school, and college girls realize that the choices they make now direct the paths of their lives for the future. Through the Biblical teachings of three ladies from diverse backgrounds, along with our influential worship leaders, we hope to reveal the lies behind the temporary excitement of youthful pleasures and expose the unspoken, lifelong repercussions of thoughtless choices.
Our prayer is that the depth of God’s love through Jesus Christ will cause our young women to make a Turning Point in their lives, forego the path that leads to loneliness and insecurity and choose the path that leads to joyful purpose and unsurpassable love.
This year Revival will be hosting our second annual Turning Point Girls Conference on September 15th from 9am-3pm. We want to teach girls and young women that God can make everything beautiful in His time. Our main speaker for the day will be five-time Olympic Medalist Marion Jones! Jones is the first female track and field athlete to win five medals at a single Olympics. Don't miss her transformational testimony of how her Olympic medals were stripped from her and how God would change her life forever!
Marion Jones is one of the most celebrated athletes of our time. After leading the North Carolina Tar Heels to the 1994 NCAA Women's Basketball Championship, Marion turned her attention to track and field and was hailed as the "the fastest woman on the planet" for more than a decade. At the 2000 Olympic Games, she became the first woman ever to win five medals at one Olympics.
But in 2007, Marion was stripped of those medals because of her admission to using performance-enhancing drugs. As a result of her confession, Marion was sentenced and served six months in federal prison for lying to federal investigators. Marion voluntarily returned her five Olympic medals and publicly apologized to her family, friends, and fans all over the world.
As a result, Marion has now committed her life to inspiring others who face life-challenging situations. As a public speaker Marion candidly, articulately and passionately shares her life story, how she came to grips withher lies and the consequences of her actions, and how she found meaning in all of it.
Jodi Von Gunten was born and raised in Palmer, Alaska. She accepted the Lord Jesus as her personal savior when she was five years old. At the young age of five she made a promise to the Lord that she would do whatever He asked her to and He has held her to that promise.
Six years ago the Lord revealed to Jodi and her husband Brian that He wanted them to move from Alaska to Southern California. This was a huge test of faith for them. They only knew one person in California and had no jobs lined up. But the Lord told them to move so they packed up there belongings, sold their house and drove in the middle of January from Alaska to California. Through their obedience the Lord has blessed them more then they could ever imagine. When they moved to California they attended Revival Christian Fellowship and fell in love with it. Through their faithfulness in serving the Lord in High School Ministry they were hired on as full time Youth Pastors.
Jodi has been through so many trials in her life but the Lord has been so faithful and has shown His glory and power as she has continued to trust him and take his path for her life.
Being raised in a Christian home doesn't guarantee a life without mistakes and consequences. "God is calling this generation to a life that goes above the standards of the world, their parents, or youth leaders. Where they hear the voice of the Good Shepherd and obey. Godliness is about the heart, not outward behavior." Prepare to be challenged and encouraged as Nicole Thomas shares her testimony and presents the Good News of God's eternal love for mankind.
Her story of how God took her from a life of teen pregnancy, drugs, adultery, divorce and death to a life of stability and blessing will clearly demonstrate the power of a living God who cares for your needs. He is the King of kings and He tenderly cares for you. Nicole and her husband Frank have lived in Murrieta since 1999 with their three incredible children, Taylor, Victoria and Josiah. They are the privileged owners of Dunamix Dance Project where Jesus Christ is proclaimed through dance, drama and music.
"Hearken to the voice of God and watch as your life unveils in a beautiful tapestry of meaning and purpose. He alone can pick up the tattered pieces of your mess and create a testimony of His perfect Grace!"
