MEN ON FIRE FOR GOD

Key Text:

Key Quote:

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Ivor Myers

Author of several books, including the innovative Operation Blueprint, Earth’s Final Movie. Pastor Myers is founder/president of Power of the Lamb Ministries and ARME Bible Camp. His Operation Global Rain, now called 10-days of Prayer, has been adopted by the General Conference of SDAs. Pastor Myers and his wife, Atonte, co-host the “Battles of Faith” program on 3ABN. Last but not least, Myers pastors the Campbell SDA Church near San Jose, CA.

Prior to dedicating his life to serving the Lord, Myers, a native of Jamaica, was a rising star in the Hip Hop industry in the 1990s, living the dream of a lifetime. His four-man group, which included younger brother Sean, was signed to a million dollar, eight album contract until a chance encounter with a friend who was an SDA altered the course of his life. After he and Sean accepted Jesus Christ and were baptized, they both left the music industry behind and entered full-time ministry.

Pastor Myers and Atonte have four children, a son, Joshua, and three daughters, Jaden, Jenesis and Jaliyah. You can also visit Pastor Myers’ Facebook page.
