Soaring in the Heights!

Have you ever felt that the routine and challenges of life have hindered you and have stolen your joy? Have you wondered what it will take to get above it all and soar?

How we can be more than victorious; how we can become the best version of ourselves; how we can become deep Christ followers and soar, soar, soar!

Special Guests

Lori Salierno

With a gripping and contagious style, Dr. Lori Salierno addresses many audiences across the country. In the public arena, Lori’s winsome talks on Universal Principles have earned her high school standing ovations and Air Force Academy cadet’s wings. In church settings, Dr. Salierno doesn’t mince words as she challenges youth to be sexually pure and leaders to mentor others with integrity.

In her many travels across the country, Dr. Salierno increasingly saw young people who were at-risk and plagued with apathy and destructive behaviors. To counter this negative trend, she founded Teach One to Lead One (T1L1). Now in its nineteenth year, T1L1 reaches thousands of students per year with a message of integrity, enthusiasm and leadership development.

Dr. Salierno authored seven books, and has been a contributing author for other books and many magazine articles, with an emphasis on developing a passion for excellence and balance, with a spirit of celebration.

Lori lives in the Atlanta, Georgia metropolitan area with her husband Jose’.

“Worship, in its total essence, is a response to the truth, not a reaction to circumstances.” — Alicia

Her ministry career spans three decades beginning with the contemporary Christian group TRUTH, where she first recorded her signature song, “There Is a Hope.” In 1993, Alicia started her itinerate speaking and worship ministry and is now a favorite speaker and worship leader for women’s ministry events throughout the nation.

In 2002, Alicia and her husband, Richard Garcia, founded IN Worship, a discipleship ministry focused on impacting the world for Christ – everyday!

Alicia and her husband Richard currently live in Mobile, AL, and have two sons, Michael and David.
