Josh Brewer

Josh Brewer is the President of LifeLight Gobal in Sioux Falls, SD and travels the world as an evangelist working to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Josh speaks with boldness and transparency that is especially relevant to youth and young adults. Being raised in a broken home with an alcoholic father, he started down a path of drugs, sex & alcohol seeking love. At 15 years old he was facing a judge with 30 counts of grand theft auto and being sentenced to jail. But God rescued him and the rest of his story is his testimony. Josh is an example of a life transformed by the power of Jesus Christ. He is passionate about seeing the nations transformed by the saving knowledge of Jesus and about going out into the streets and rescuing those that have never heard, whether that is in America or other nations. He seeks to spur the Church on to see what Jesus describes in John 4:35, “… I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.”

Cade Thompson

Cade Thompson is a 16 year old worship leader and songwriter who has encountered the presence of the Lord and is now committed to use his passion for music to lead others into a transforming experience with the presence of God. Cade has had an affinity with music since his toddler days when a preschool teacher noticed him harmonizing. In elementary school Cade normally progressed through piano and guitar lessons. As a sixth grader Cade was learning music through school activities when a youth leader from his church invited him to join the youth worship team. Soon, another youth leader took Cade under his wing, training him in multiple instruments, but also emphasized the importance of seeking God through the Bible outside of a worship setting. During this time Cade encountered the love of the Father and desires to lead others into that same encounter of knowing the love of God. The presence of God led Cade to make sacrifices to join his church worship team multiple days a week.

From the place of intimacy with God, Cade wrote and recorded his debut single “Faithful and True” as a 14 year old. Cade is a trained acoustic and bass guitarist, drummer, vocalist, and is developing his keyboard skills. Despite his youth Cade has had a consistent presence in the Sioux Falls and South Dakota community by either leading worship or joining worship teams as an instrumentalist or vocalist. Ministries or events Cade has worshiped with include Church at the Gate, Embrace Church, LifeLight Global Z8 Initiative, Underground House of Prayer, Gate House of Prayer, Sioux Falls Regional Outpouring, Vineyard Church, McCrossan Boys Ranch, Gathering of the Generals, 24 Hour Prayer in Pierre, Native Nations Ablaze and LifeLight Music Festival among others.

Bobby Bugattii Jones

I’M BOBBY JONES. I speak around the country to thousands of youth, sharing my story. As a former Division I athlete, I had dreams of going into the NFL. Once I fell short of that dream, I found myself spiraling into addiction and depression. I lost 10 years of my life to alcohol. After making the choice to pull myself out of struggle and discover my purpose inside the pain, I’ve made it my mission to empower today’s youth.
