Speaker Andrea Coli has been described as "having the ability to transform a room into a fun atmosphere while tempering it with the truth of God’s Word.” She uses her background in improv comedy and her biblical knowledge to inspire others to discover God’s unique call for their lives. Whether she is speaking in front of a group, exploring San Francisco with her husband, or carting her kids around in the minivan, Andrea is always on the lookout for God’s truth in everyday places. In fact, she wrote a book all about it called “Scriptless: What I Learned About God on the Las Vegas Strip”. Andrea received her MA in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary and partners in ministry with her husband Chris, who is Senior Pastor of CrossWinds Church in Livermore, California. When you listen to Andrea, you might find yourself laughing, crying or a little bit of both, but what you know for sure is that you will be led on a journey to the heart of something very special that God has for you

Can you imagine what could happen if we gave control of our life to God? It’s scary, but the benefits are world-altering. The story of Elisha challenges us to answer God’s calling and take the risks that are necessary to do His will. It's time we start taking risks and making decisions the world doesn’t understand. Come see what life can look like when we let go… when we decide to have Ridiculous Faith.
