Special Keynote Speaker: Pastor Gerald Brooks
Gerald Brooks, the founding pastor of Grace Outreach Center in Plano, Texas, is well-known internationally for his passionate heart to mentor other pastors. Pastor Brooks hosts the annual North Texas Leadership Conference in Plano, drawing ministers from all over the nation. He teaches leadership across the country through church growth seminars, including John Maxwell’s Breaking the 500 and 1000 Barrier conferences. Pastor Brooks’ regional roundtables and monthly leadership subscriptions provide ministers and business leaders with innovative tools and practical wisdom. Pastor Brooks, along with his wife, Geni, founded Grace Outreach Center in 1982. Grace Outreach is a multi-cultural, interdenominational church. The congregation, although located in a predominantly white area, is a diverse body of believers, with half of the attenders representing other ethnicities and cultures. Over 35 nationalities are represented, with the majority of these representing African nations. Grace Outreach has creatively targeted youth and children as the focus of its ministry. Recognized for his distinguished service to the body of Christ, Pastor Brooks has received the Doctor of Divinity from Beulah Heights University in Georgia, the Doctorate of Christian Leadership at Ohio Christian University, and an honorary degree from Christ for the Nations. In 2010, he was inducted into the Martin Luther King, Jr. Board of Preachers at Morehouse College. He was named to the John Maxwell Equip Hall of Fame Inaugural Class in 2012. As a member of the Equip Board of Directors, Pastor Brooks partners with John Maxwell to help raise up international Christian leaders to fulfill the Great Commission in every nation. He is a contributor to the New Spirit Filled Life Bible and the author of nine books, including Leadership According to 1 Cor. 13, Understanding Your Pain Threshold, and The Laws of Increase. Pastor Brooks and Geni have been married 38 years and have three children, Wendi, Kayci, and Cody, and four grandchildren.
