Vision Summit Speakers

We are thrilled to have Christian economist, Jerry Bowyer, with us throughout the Summit to provide economic insights as well as host a Q&A time for all attendees. In the midst of so much economic uncertainty, you will find Jerry’s wisdom and expertise to be helpful, encouraging, and hope-filled.

We will hear from Crown's CEO, Chuck Bentley, who will share his State of the World update. This update always provides insightful context for the work God is doing through Crown. At first glance, the State of the World may seem bleak, but looking through the lens of a Biblical worldview, your perspective is likely to change.

Dinner at the Knoxville Sunsphere

On Friday evening, we'll enjoy dinner and conversation at the iconic Knoxville Sunsphere. The Sunsphere was constructed for the 1982 World's Fair and during that time, it served as the symbol to the Fair. It is sure to be a fun and memorable evening!
