RISE CONFERENCE 2018 (RECAP)

RISE Conference 2018 was a night of revival!  The annual Godkulture conference took place at City Church Chicago on November 10. The full-day experience kicked off the day with a general session called Spark of Genius led by Rotimi Kehinde and featured a great panel of entrepreneurs. Followed up by Creative & Worship tracks that counted with amazing talented facilitators such as Tomi Favored, Dori del Rio, Rodney Young, Olumide Kehinde, and Dr. Susy Best.

The second part of the day took place in the main auditorium where people across 35 churches experienced such a powerful time of worship, dance, and teaching. The evening experience featured six new songs including ‘You deserve’ (GK worship), and ‘Cross The Mountains‘ (Lucia Bracho). God for sure took us higher and higher! From the worship set, the theatrical performance, to our featured & guest artists and of course, the life-changing message that Pastor Anna Morgan shared in the evening, this year’s conference left its attendees with a message unlike any other; it is time to RISE!

Guest artists like Femi Ogebule and Tomi Favored (Houston) also contributed to making the night unforgettable! We haven’t recovered from the worship session with Erick Townsend! Heaven invaded earth!

RISE was inspired by the scripture Ezekiel 37 of The Valley of Dry Bones;

“The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry.  He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”

I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.”

Lijo George shared a powerful spoken word piece. Pastor Sho prayed and encouraged the sons & daughters of Christ to rise up into the fullness of God’s calling.

Hope we see you next year @ GodKulture Conference 2019.

”Cross The Mountains” with Lucia Bracho

WHO SHE IS

“Hey, mama!” A voice rings out from across the church lobby, a sure sign Lucia Bracho has entered the building. Known by her friends as Lucy, she is equal parts kind, compassionate, and full of South American playful sass. Rarely seen without a grin on her face, the former Miss Congeniality’s spirit packs a punch like no one else’s.

Lucy was born in Venezuela but being the daughter of a military man, her family traveled and she lived abroad for much of her upbringing. She studied modern languages at the Central University of Venezuela and she is a polyglot, fluent in English, Spanish and Italian. More than linguistics, however, her passion for music and songwriting is the most powerful influence in Lucia’s life: “I sing all day, every day. It’s how I communicate with God.”

FROM ‘LOVE THAT GROWS WITHIN’ TO ‘CROSS THE MOUNTAINS’

A former beauty pageant competitor, Lucia believes that love and beauty grow from the inside out and that it is vital to love yourself as you love others. How can you love on others if you don’t love yourself first? “My heart is burning for women. I see a lot of women struggling with identity and not happy with their skin. They’ve misplaced their value,” she says. Thus, Love That Grows Within was born. Lucy hosts a weekly podcast and she regularly releases devotionals on her blog. Love That Grows Within seeks to equip, empower and reaffirm women’s identities in Christ, for those of this generation and of generations to come.

She now resides in Chicago, Illinois where she leads a life group and serves on the worship team at City Church Chicago. She released her debut single “Cross the Mountain” on October 10th at RISE Conference. Lucia’s hope for those who hear the song is that you find hope in knowing there is no need to climb the mountains before them. Jesus has already paved the way, He is within you on the journey, and all you need to do is cross; a valley of peace awaits.

Her first single is available in all major streaming platforms! You can listen to Cross The Mountains here:

Happy New Year

On behalf of myself, my family and the entire GodKulture global team, I want to say Happy New Year to you! 2017 was amazing! We had so many breakthroughs and I will say humbly, that it’s been our best year yet!

We moved into our new and super-cool office space which gives us a creative hub for our team, volunteers, photo and video studio, and classroom all in one. We had a record turn-out at our annual conference where we launched our debut album, Love and Freedom (Itunes, Spotify). It was amazing to see God move in such a mighty way and to see people make decisions for Jesus.

I am personally excited about 2018 and it also will have some big changes in some of our initiatives as well as events.

Our theme for the year is: RISE. We believe that God is going to do amazing things through the most unlikely people. We are confident that it is time for the church to rise up and take her place.

We believe that God has empowered us to find solutions to the challenges that exist today in the church. This is who we are at GodKulture Global. Our mission is to cover the earth with the culture of heaven through music, dance, teaching, arts, name it. The gospel is about good news and we must constantly evolve in our storytelling, in our crafting of methods to reach the culture.

The church should be at the forefront of creativity. We should be solving problems and this, I think, is being relevant to the culture and not a bunch of people who simply want everyone else to believe in what they believe.

For us at GK, 2018 will also have some big changes in some of our initiative and events. First off, we’re making a big direction/name change to our annual FireStorm Conference. We started the journey of hosting annual conferences in 2002 and we believe strongly that it’s time to focus on aligning the conference with our mission of empowering the church to influence the culture. The church is God’s body on earth and our drive will be to engage local assemblies to partner with us in this mission. Our annual conference will now simply be called The God Culture Conference where we will explore topics related to church, creativity and culture.

Through song, dance, spoken word, co-labs, teachings, we are more than excited to share the story of God’s love spun through church history to our present day local churches.

Secondly, we’re launching official GodKulture Memberships where our members will be able to get amazing perks for being part of our movement and be part of a community of christian creatives.

Our office will be open on Saturdays for our members to come study, worship, attend GK events, have meetings, or play video games. There’ll always be free coffee and parking.

This year, I want to encourage you to RISE UP! To take your place in God’s plan and to take the leap of faith into His perfect will. God wants His people to rise up from shame, despair, frustration, sin to new life in Jesus Christ. This is a life of purpose focused on God’s mission.

Welcome to 2018.

Weekly Truth Bomb

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

In Ephesians 6:13, we are called to do two things:

1. To put on the armor of God. This means to know the Word in our hearts. We must put in effort to learn His promises so that in good and bad times we have a steady foundation to stand on.
2. We must do all. As Christians, we are often called to do all, meaning withstand evil attacks. After we have done this – we stand. We stand firmly on the rock of God, the foundation we have built by putting on His armor and becoming unmovable.
This should be applied both personally, professionally, and relationally. We must never forget that the devil waits, lurking and desiring to kill, steal, and destroy all that is good in our lives. He waits at the door of every area knocking, hoping that we let him in. As humans, we will fail at times and crack the door open for him. WHEN, this happens, and not IF it happens; we must be prepared for battle by putting on the armor of God and withstanding. Our Father will not put us to shame and he will fight our battles for us (Exodus 14:14). #Godkulture #Vision&Valor
