Greater Lodi Leadership Prayer Breakfast
Our Keynote Speaker
The Keynote Speaker for this year is Eddie Rentz. Eddie is a communicator, motivator, educator, mentor, visionary, and evangelist for advancing the mission of reaching out to the poor and suffering around the world through the power of compassion by living out John 3:16 and Matthew 25. He is the West Coast Regional director and National Director for the Hispanic and Ethnic Initiative for Convoy of Hope International.
Eddie grew up experiencing the pains of divorce, a blended family, substance abuse, and suicide. After experiencing a dramatic conversion and freedom from substance abuse, he began speaking in the California Youth prison and University campuses about the hope that is found in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Upon graduating from Bethany University, Eddie began traveling as an evangelist throughout the United States and many countries throughout the world.
In 1994, Eddie became the Youth Director over 450 churches in Northern California and Nevada with the Assemblies of God. His success led to being invited to be the National Youth director for the Assemblies of God in Springfield, Missouri. He provided leadership for 16,000 churches and over 300,000 students throughout the United States.
Convoy of Hope is a faith-based, international, humanitarian-relief organization strategically based in Springfield, Missouri — the crossroads of America. Since being founded in 1994 Convoy of Hope has helped more than 65 million people who are impoverished, hungry and hurting.
