September 18-20, 2023

Clearwater, FL

Selah is an intentional pause in worship to reflect on the goodness and greatness of God. During these three days in September, we will provide you with a unique opportunity to step back, pause, and ponder the incredible work of God in your life through thoughtful teaching, dynamic worship, authentic fellowship, and lots of free time to rest and reconnect with the God who loves you and wants to fill you up.

Guest Speakers

Gary Rohrmayer

 President of Converge MidAmerica|Southeast|Caribbean

Gary Rohrmayer has a unique focus on mobilizing and mentoring leaders in the harvest field. He specializes in equipping leaders in spiritual formation, church multiplication, and church health.

Gary’s vision is that no leader travels their ministry journey alone. He desires to emulate the ministry of Barnabas by becoming a son of encouragement to the next generation of leaders. Gary has been involved in church planting since 1987 and has assisted in planting over 200 new church plants. He has trained hundreds of church planters, pastors, and missionaries throughout the U.S. and through a growing international ministry.

He has authored 14 books: Church Planting Landmines, FirstSteps for Planting a Missional Church, NextSteps for Leading a Missional Church, Life Biggest Adventure, and his 21-Day Devotional series. Gary just released his second edition of Spiritual Conversations: Creating and Sustaining Them Like Jesus, which describes the evangelistic philosophy of his best-selling spiritual conversation tool, The Spiritual Journey Guide, which has sold over 3 million.

As President of Converge MidAmerica|Southeast|Caribbean, he oversees its business and ministry interests that support regional church planting and ongoing care of its partner churches.

Gary and his wife Mary have been married for 41 years and have three children and three grandchildren. They live in the greater Chicagoland area.

Gregg Heinsch

Planter/Lead Pastor
Celebration Community Church

Gregg and his wife, Heidi, both grew up in southern Minnesota. Starting out as junior high sweethearts, they now have completed 42 years of marriage, blessed with three children and nine grandchildren.

After completing a B.A. and M.Div. at Bethel, Gregg and Heidi relocated to Hudson, Wisconsin in 1984 to plant Faith Community Church. Gregg served as its Lead Pastor for 20 years before moving to Florida to help launch Vision360 in 2005. In the process, he relaunched Celebration Community Church in Celebration, Florida and has served as its Lead Pastor ever since.

Gregg’s convictions include the need for churches to be theologically-driven. The power to convert and transform spiritually dead people to living followers of Christ lies in the Word of God faithfully taught in ways that are conversant with our culture.

Through the years, he has also served as a youth pastor, adjunct seminary preaching professor, church planting coach, and all-around sports enthusiast.
