Please join us on Thursday, February 8th to hear an inspirational and motivational presentation from Matt Allner. We will meet from 7:00-8:30 at the Visalia Wyndam Hotel. Please call Eileen Daly at 559-805-7008 for reservations by Monday, February 5th or register online at cpbc-tularekings.org. Breakfast is $20 for non-members and $15 for members. Matt is an enthusiastic and powerful speaker with a diverse background of both professional and life experiences that will have you reflecting not only about what matters in life, but will help you discover discernment and to hear God’s call for your discipleship. With the world at such a critical turning point—national and personal debt at an all-time high, social pressures and competition in school and in sports higher than they have ever been before for our youth, the multitude of external factors chiseling away at marriages and family dynamics, and with the very real spiritual battle for our souls that is waging, Matt will help you see why there is no better time than now to address these issues with positive and realistic solutions as he sheds a very simple light on how we all can protect our relationships and our children by staying the course on what matters most—loving and serving God. From athletics to public education, marriage to fatherhood, science researcher to entrepreneur, Matt will connect with audiences of all ages in ways that will leave you wanting to hear more and desiring to build a stronger relationship with and serve God more than you ever have before.
Matt’s path to a deep faith in the Lord started at a very early age when Matt felt God’s presence in his life, where his first discerning of God’s call was while he was an altar server in the Catholic Church he attended each Sunday. As God continued to strengthen his faith and his talents, he felt God favoring his life and moving him to an athletic platform where he would work to positively influence a broad age range of youth. As his life evolved further, Matt found himself moving to new and sometimes very different platforms but all serving the same focus of protecting youth and positively influencing others. This focus eventually moved him to a more intense focus in 2015 where he felt a very strong and clear call from God to heavily pursue more mission work through his consulting efforts and from substantial tithing efforts from the success of the business entities he owns and manages. Matt’s story of discernment and clear understanding of his call to serve God is not only moving but empowering, as he has turned down multiple lures throughout his life that would have brought him fame and fortune, but did so in order to continue the path he knows God has asked him to pursue. He is unshaken in his faith, strong in his marriage, fiercely protective of his children and all youth he works with, and is finding a deeper relationship with God each day through the work in which he is now involved.
Matt will be speaking to us on the topic: When Will We Have Enough? A Culture Focused on Possessions, Personal Accomplishments, and Career. Please plan to join us on Thursday, February 8th. Everyone is welcome!
