We are excited to announce local football great and co-host of KIRO radio’s 710 ESPN morning sports talk show – Brock and Salk – Brock Huard will be our keynote speaker at Higher Ground 2018. Following his days as an award-winning quarterback at Puyallup High School and the University of Washington, Brock enjoyed 6 years in the NFL, 4 of those playing for the Seattle Seahawks. Beyond the field, Brock came to faith in junior high and received profound mentoring from his youth pastor. At Higher Ground 2018 Brock will share stories and insights of the many deep and transforming friendships that have impacted his growth as a Christ follower, both on and off the field.
The Transformational Power of Authentic Relationship
Our theme for Higher Ground 2018 will center around the importance and transformational power of authentic brotherhood. Getting connected. Being transparent. Leading in grace. GETTING REAL. Our capacity to be authentic with one another is the cornerstone upon which real life change and freedom are born and lays the groundwork for a life that thrives. Our sessions and breakouts will all feature this touchpoint and we’ll also be sharing some exciting post-conference group connection opportunities.
Above and Beyond
Many of you have already been enjoying Brock’s new podcast Above and Beyond – The Intersection of Faith and Sports, which debuted last April and features interviews with the men that have impacted and continue to inspire his Christian faith. If you haven’t yet – check them out! You’ll be encouraged and inspired as each interview is full of authenticity and powerful life lessons about real guys GETTING REAL about their faith.
At the conference and in our lead-up communications, we will be spotlighting Above & Beyond’s sponsor – Compassion International. We’ll be sharing about opportunities for you to join their amazing work releasing children from poverty across the globe.
