Program Information:

The world around us craves authenticity…the real. More and more, people can pick out the false or exaggerated and they will eventually flee from it when it is found wanting. In this session, we’ll talk about the elements of trust and how authenticity may well be the most important characteristic that people look for in their leaders.

Todd Wyrick joined Spirit Ranch in 2014 after serving nearly 20 years in youth and family ministry. Serving churches in Lubbock, Los Angeles, Midland, he is no stranger to working with teams of people that bring diverse backgrounds and perspectives. A Lubbock native, Todd graduated from Texas Tech (Harvard on the Plains) in 1999 with a bachelor’s degree in Human Development. Truth be told, he was on the 7-year plan and finished a year early. He also holds a Master of Divinity from Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, CA.
