The Link – Stephen Mackey
The Link is an event centered on developing positive behavior for High School students. The 2nd annual Link is happening this Saturday starting at 6pm. Event is taking place at Son Valley Ranch. This once a year event is sponsored by business and individuals that have a desire to better the lives of our teens in the Crossroads area. Last year we had over 150 students attend.
Our featured motivational speaker is Stephen Mackey. From high school football teams to high-profile conferences, Stephen Mackey brings an empowering, inspiring, and equipping message to audiences of all backgrounds. Bi-racial and born to a teenaged mother, Mackey (as he is better known) beat the odds to become a first-generation college graduate (B.S., Texas A&M University‘07; MDiv, Fuller Theological Seminary, ‘16), character development coach, motivational speaker, and most importantly, husband and daddy. Drawing from his own life story and the stories of people he meets across the country, Mackey has an uncanny ability to authentically connect with his audience through humor, wisdom, and passion, and usher them to the next level of character and performance. Despite the odds being stacked against him, Mackey’s life was changed by the coaches and mentors in his life, who challenged him to “Take Responsibility. Period.” for his life. This single challenge has fueled everything Mackey has done in his life and is the foundation of his work today. On almost any given day, you can find Mackey in a locker room, school auditorium, or event stage, challenging and equipping people to take responsibility and change their lives.
Opening the event will be Knight Illusions. David & Kylie Knight are a husband and wife Christian illusionist duo who have traveled and performed together for over 15 years. They have a passion for wowing audiences with their craft – and their intense love for Jesus and for each other shines through in everything they do.
Doors open at 5pm at Son Valley Ranch. Event starts at 6pm. High Students are invited to attend. There is no charge to attend. The first 150 students will receive a FREE t-shirt. At the event food and merchandise will be available to purchase. Click here to follow The Link on facebook.
