The Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts was the place where over 150 local residents gathered this past Friday morning at the Cerritos-based Trinity Worldwide Reprographics’ Speakers Forum to hear U.S. Navy S.E.A.L. Chad Williams share his experiences in the Navy and coming to Christ. Chad began by explaining the deep connection he established with his trainer/mentor Scott Helvenston, who worked with him almost daily in preparation for Chad joining the Navy.
Chad went on to share that when he heard his mentor had been killed, it served to fuel his desire to reach the top of the Navy S.E.A.L. “mountain.” When Chad reached the top, he stated, “There was nothing up there. I was empty and I tried to fill that emptiness. I fell into a depression.”
His parents pleaded with Chad to accompany them to church and Chad continually refused until, one day, in order to quickly “please his parents” he agreed to attend church with them. He knew that afterwards he was going to go out and drink, but what Chad didn’t know was that God had planned an encounter with him. That night Chad accepted Jesus as his Savior and has never looked back. His life took a 180° turn for the better.
At the conclusion of Chad’s presentation, Pastor Joe Enriquez from Point Man International Ministries along with other members of Point Man, as well as Living Waters Ministries Founder and CEO Ray Comfort, President “E.Z.” Zwayne, and V.P. of Outreach Mark Spence all joined together in praying for Chad. It was a privilege to witness these great men together on stage—a beautiful portrait of the body of Christ.
It was a glorious morning filled with a powerful message, key leaders in the Christian community, and birthday cupcakes for the man who works behind the scenes to make Speakers Forum possible, Trinity’s CEO Paul Rosenow.
We do hope you will join us next month on August 21st for a special Speakers Forum featuring The Gutierrez Brothers. This group has been playing music professionally since 1981. Since coming to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior in 1988, their greatest desire has been to share this Good News with others around the world. You don’t want to miss this great event!
Additionally, for the upcoming months of August, September, and October we are partnering with Save A Child’s Heart as our Love Thy Neighbor initiative, where we will be fundraising to provide a child with urgent heart surgery. For more information about Love Thy Neighbor or Speakers Forum, please contact us at (562) 567-2050 or www.Trinity3in1.net.
“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13
