"Everyone communicates but few Connect"
We are excited and blessed to have Fred Douglas as this year's speaker. Fred is an innovative thinker / speaker / leader in both business and theological circles. Whatever the environment, he helps people realize their own potential to create positive change and real connections.
Fred Douglas - Speaker
Fred Douglas is a gifted speaker and dear friend to the Pacific Northwest Association of the Church of God. Drawing from his many years of experience as the Executive Director of Youth for Christ, he uses inovative strategies to teach men the power of connection and their personal story.
Fred’s passion is to lead others into a deeper connection in their personal walk with the Lord and develop stronger connections in every relationship and aspect of life.
Fred’s ability to share the power of transformation through his own personal story and the stories of others will challenge and inspire you to step out and share your story and watch Christ bring transformation to others through the power of connection.
