Momentum 2022 – Territorial Men’s Conference

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

See, I am doing a new thing!

Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?  I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

– ISAIAH 43:18-19 (NIV)

After more than two decades of gospel ministry, Dr. Mason has become known for his passion to see the glory of Jesus Christ robustly and relevantly engaged in broken cities with the comprehensive gospel. He helps coach and train families to plant churches locally, nationally, and internationally. He is the founder and president of Thriving, an urban resource organization committed to developing leaders for ministry in the urban context, and is the author of three books, Manhood Restored, Beat God to the Punch, and Unleashed.

Carlos Whittaker

Carlos Whittaker is a People’s Choice Award winner, a former recording artist signed to a major label, a social media maven, and currently spends the majority of his time writing books and speaking on stages around the world. It really began when the Whittaker’s found their family in America’s spotlight with appearances on shows like CBS Early Morning, The Today Show and more when their viral video “Single Ladies Devastation” went viral. But for Carlos, his wife Heather and their three children, this viral moment was just a snapshot of the bigger picture.

“Our family has experienced our share of moments both big and small. What we’ve learned is that every single one has played a pinnacle part in our lives. Each moment has built on to the next one and when we take a step back we see this incredible canvas that has been woven together.”

The release of “Moment Maker” marked Carlos’ debut as an author, but his current book “Kill the Spider” has taken Carlos’ tribe into the deeper parts of their souls. In his newest book Carlos helps people identify, locate, corner, and kill the spiders that are plaguing their lives. “My dad once told me that I must stop cleaning to cobwebs in my life and kill the spider”, Carlos recalls. “This was a massive shift in my soul that began my journey towards being truly centered in my life.”

As an adult, Carlos and his wife Heather moved from California back to Atlanta where he joined the team at Andy Stanley’s Buckhead Church. There, Carlos continued to apply ‘moment making’ into his everyday life, blogging about his experiences and recruiting his family and friends along the way. In 2009 Carlos signed a recording deal with Integrity Music and moved his family to Nashville TN. It was in Nashville where Carlos decided to make the shift from writing music to writing books. And from singing on stages to speaking on stages.

“I know it’s a little backwards. People normally move to this town to make it in music. Little did I know that I moved to this town to make it as a speaker who motivates people to live their lives to the fullest.” Carlos remembers. “It was actually only a week after he decided to stop pursuing a career in music and instead pursue a career as a speaker that he got his first call to speak. It was at the White House for the Easter Prayer Breakfast. “I went from singing in front of thousands to speaking an a room of about 50. One whom was the President of the United States. It seems the moment making thing is going to keep on going.

Currently Carlos is regularly teaching at churches and conferences worldwide. Including Catalyst Conference, Embrace Church, FreshLife Church, and many more.

Anthony Evans

For two decades, Anthony Evans has voiced the gospel with a melodic, thought-provoking style, and has emerged as one of Christian music’s premier worship leaders and singer/songwriters.  Along the way, Anthony has released ten solo projects, (the last two climbing all the way to #1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Album charts), released his first book, Unexpected Places, done numerous music videos, acted in two movies, and performed as “Beast” in Disney’s Hollywood Bowl production of Beauty and the Beast. In addition, he has collaborated on inspirational events with his father, beloved pastor and international speaker, Dr. Tony Evans; his sisters, Priscilla Shirer and Chrystal Evans Hurst; and his brother, author and speaker Jonathan Evans.

In more recent years, Anthony has been working in Los Angeles, where he appeared on NBC’s The Voice. His time on the show led to him being discovered and asked to perform and produce vocals for various major networks. In addition to vocal production, Anthony has been enlisted as talent producer for an assortment of popular reality and competition shows. This sojourn in LA has led him to think more progressively about his music—he desires to communicate in terms that connect with people spiritually, no matter where they are in their journey with the Lord, without compromising his own faith and message. This focus has allowed Anthony to use his one-of-a-kind voice to reverberate throughout the church and out its doors to impact the world beyond.
