After growing into one of Australia’s most influential gatherings, the Planetshakers U.S. conference was held Jan. 17-19 and featured compelling messages from speakers Russell Evans, Sam Evans, Chris Hill, Ben Prescott, Miles McPherson, Sergio De La Mora and Obed Martinez, as well as worship music by Planetshakers Band.
“We are humbled by the response we received at the very first Planetshakers USA conference here in San Diego,” says Russell Evans, founder/director and senior pastor of Planetshakers City Church. “People flew in from places like Florida and Hawaii to be part of this precious time where people were encouraged, empowered and given practical tools to return to their local church and serve with a renewed spirit, fresh energy and increase their influence and reach into their local community.
