Join us for the 2015 World Leaders Forum Inspirational Series featuring Nick Vujicic! 

 

Nick Vujicic, of Melbourne, Australia, faces life each day without ever using hands, arms, legs, or feet. That is because he was born without any limbs. Yet, maneuvering around with severe disabilities has done little to deter him from living a "ridiculously good" life and encouraging others to do the same. Now, the 31-year-old husband and dad travels the world over as a successful motivational speaker and New York Times best-selling author, telling people to hold on to their dreams, their hopes, and to Jesus Christ. 

 

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at the website above.
