Greetings My Dear Friends,
This Ninth Annual Sensational Central Florida Mature Adult Celebration is going to be incredible. It is our heart’s desire to use this event to challenge those over the age of 50 to be actively engaged in ministry in their churches in order to make a positive difference for the Lord until He returns.
As you read about our incredible lineup of guests, I’m sure you will agree that this year will be outstanding. We believe we will quickly fill the 1,000 seat auditorium, so I would encourage you to register early.
We attempt to produce this event as reasonably as possible. The First Baptist Church of Central Florida donates its facilities and the leaders and workers donate their time. The “Sensational Celebration” is a ministry of inspiration and encouragement for the glory of the Lord.
Until we meet here, there or in the air,
Rev. Charles L. Nelson
Giving Powerful Messages from the Word of God:
Dr. Johnny Hunt is the Senior Pastor of the 16,000 member First Baptist Church of Woodstock, Georgia. He has a passion for people and has touched countless lives around the world. He served two terms as the President of the Southern Baptist Convention. His preaching is bursting with power and wisdom that will grip your heart and life.
Dr. Bob Pitman is a highly sought-after evangelist. He has preached over 900 revivals and co-authored two books with Evangelist Junior Hill. He was the Dean of the Adrian Rogers Center, served with the SBC and Alabama Convention and is an author. His engaging preaching style, sprinkled with quick humor, will positively impact your life.
Dr. Ken Whitten is the Senior Pastor of the “Exciting” 10,000 member Idlewild Baptist Church in Lutz, Florida since October 1989. He has served as President of the Florida Baptist Convention and President of the Pastors’ Conference of the Southern Baptist Convention held in St. Louis. His dynamic preaching style will forever change your life.
Making our Worship Outstanding through Music:
Greater Vision will bring their rich, powerful vocal blend to “The Grand Finale” both nights. They have established a firm place at the pinnacle of Christian music, and have become the most awarded trio in the history of Gospel music. Their humor will have you laughing, their message will have you shouting “Amen” and their dynamite music will have you on your feet.
When you hear Veritas 5, you will say, “WOW!” Simply, “WOW!” These guys punch out incredible vocals, better than the best you’ve heard on America’s Got Talent! Look at their promo video on Youtube and you will be blown away. When you leave this year’s event, you will long be talking about Veritas, which means Truth. You will hear the “Truth” in an extremely powerful way this year.
The Rob Mills Family will bless you mightily as they lead us in worship this year. They have had over 1.6 million views on Youtube with their hilarious “Hymns Through the Decades.” You may have seen them on the Bill Gaither videos or stages all across America.
Greg Buchanan gives his talent and music to God. He is an amazing World Class Harpist whose aggressive style will cause you to not believe what you hear coming from his instrument. He will raise you to a whole new level of worship. His superb musicianship and enthusiastic attitude has made him one of the most sought-after Christian performers in America for the past 25 years.
Just for Fun:
Taylor Mason is beyond funny and brings comedy, ventriloquism and music to a whole new level. You may have seen him on TV with Second City, on Youtube, at a church function, on his many Disney cruise stages, on a Bill Gaither video or even at Carnegie Hall. This man tickles the funny bone of all ages and does it with clean humor.
