Larry OSborne

Larry Osborne is a Teaching Pastor and Kingdom Ambassador at North Coast Church in Vista CA where he previously served as Senior and Lead Pastor, helping to oversee the church’s growth from 128 to over 13,000 in weekend attendance with 7 local campuses. 

 

A sought-after trainer of pastors, leaders, and church planters, he has been acclaimed as one of the most influential and innovative pastors in America for pioneering such concepts as sermon-based small groups, pastoral teaching teams, video venues, and multisite churches. His fingerprints are found on churches throughout the world.

 

Larry’s leadership books include: Lead Like A Shepherd, Sticky Church, Sticky Teams, Sticky Leaders, Mission Creep, and The Unity Factor. 

 

His books on spiritual formation and discipleship include: Thriving in Babylon, Accidental Pharisees, A Contrarian’s Guide to Knowing God, and 10 Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe.

 

Larry holds both a Master of Divinity and Doctorate degree from Talbot Theological Seminary.  He and his wife, Nancy, live in Oceanside, CA. They have three married children and eight grandchildren.

Andrew Stanley

Homeschooled preacher’s kids with finance degrees don’t usually quit their Budget Analyst jobs that provide health insurance to pursue stand-up comedy, but Andrew Stanley did, and he hasn’t looked back.  He is now touring all over the country (as well as internationally) performing at clubs, festivals, fundraisers, churches, corporate events, bars with 4 people in them that "didn’t know there would be comedy tonight”….  Andrew possesses a unique perspective that pairs well with his dry delivery and observational nature.   He was the winner of the 2017 Search for the South’s Funniest Accountant and in 2019, he was selected as a New Face of Comedy at Montreal’s prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival.  Andrew’s parents are still alive so he works clean.
