Leanne Matthesius

Conference Host

Leanne Matthesius along with her husband Jurgen are the senior pastors of C3 Church San Diego, a thriving church in southern California. Leanne is a mother to 3 sons, 1 beautiful daughter and has been in full-time ministry for over 20 years. Leanne’s ministry style is wonderfully feminine, and refreshingly humorous. She moves powerfully in the anointing seeing many released and set free from the bondages and limitations keeping them from becoming all that God has designed them to be.

Lisa Harper

Speaker + Author

Rarely are the terms ``hilarious storyteller`` and ``theological scholar`` used in the same sentence, much less used to describe the same person but then again, Lisa Harper is anything but stereotypical! She has been lauded as a gifted communicator, whose writing and speaking overflow with colorful pop culture references that connect the dots between the Bible era and modern life. Her style combines sound scriptural exposition with easy-to-relate to anecdotes and comedic wit.

The most noticeable thing about Lisa Harper is her authenticity. During a recent interview she said, “I’m so grateful for the opportunities God’s given me but don’t forget, He often uses donkeys and rocks!” She went on to describe her greatest accomplishment to date as getting to be Missy’s mama. Because in April 2014, after a difficult two-year journey, Lisa finally got to bring her adopted daughter home from Haiti and she hasn’t stopped grinning since.

Wendy Perez

Pastor | The Church LV

Wendy Perez, along with her husband Benny, are the lead pastors at The Church LV. They have been married for 18 years and have 3 children: BJ, Bella, and Benaiah. They have both been in full-time ministry for over 20 years. Benny began as a youth pastor in Southern California and then moved to the Pacific Northwest, leading one of the nation’s greatest youth revivals. This led to an international ministry (Benny Perez Ministries), opening doors for Benny to speak and minister all over the world. Wendy grew up in a pastor’s home, ministering with her parents from a young age, and is now preaching regularly with Benny, both locally and around the globe.

They have devoted their lives to pursuing God, building the local church, and bringing Jesus to the city of Las Vegas. Passionate for the presence of God, Benny and Wendy have built a church culture that reflects this passion. When you walk through the doors of The Church LV, you will encounter a welcoming community of people who love Jesus.

Dale Partridge

Entrepreneur, Author, Speaker


I was born in 1985 to a blue collar worker and a stay-at-home mother. We lived in Southern California where I was convinced I was to be a professional baseball player. After a high school pitching injury shifted my dream, I found myself unemployable (I was fired from 15 jobs). It was a confusing time. But after seeing this quote in an old book given to me by my Grandmother, I started my first business.

Since then, I’ve launched over a half dozen multi-million dollar companies. From a rock-climbing gym and a conference company to a branding agency and a multi-million dollar e-commerce business. In 2014, my wife and I decided to sell the majority of the stock in our companies to simplify our life. We left Orange County to raise our family on a small farm overlooking glacier-capped mountains in Oregon.

Today, I’ve shifted my mission from starting companies to teaching others how to start theirs. To help people create the business and family they love. To chase their dreams and fulfill their purpose.
