2014 Keynote Speaker

Keynote Speaker Kay Warren

Enjoy speaker Kay Warren as she shares her story as told in her renowned book Choose Joy: Because Happiness Isn’t Enough.

Kay Warren is the co-founder along with her husband Rick, of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California. The church is the eighth largest church in America. Warren is an international speaker, best-selling author and Bible teacher.

The Warren’s son, Matthew, was 27 years old when he took his own life in 2013. His death was the culmination of a lifetime of suffering for him and his family. He was borderline bipolar and struggled with depression.

Born in part out of the spiritual and emotional journey stemming from her son’s life long challenges with mental illness, Kay Warren authored “Choose Joy, Because Happiness Isn’t Enough.” In it Warren shares the path to experiencing “soul-satisfying” joy no matter what you’re going through.

The Warrens are working to equip churches to raise awareness and reduce stigma about mental illness. Kay Warren is particularly passionate about the need to train faith leaders to better handle mental health issues.
