HUMBLE, Texas – For the second consecutive year, The Well Experience brought A-list celebrities and anointed faith leaders to the Houston area for a powerful and prophetic two-day worship and learning experience. Hosted by Pastor Keion Henderson, founder of The Lighthouse Church, the event has become the country’s premier singles conference, featuring some of today’s most impactful voices, including Hollywood actress Meagan Good, pastor-producer Devon Franklin, reality television star Evelyn Braxton and more.
“For the first time in history, single Americans outnumber married Americans. It’s critical that the church make single men and women a priority, and equip them with tools, resources and relevant advice to help them live fulfilling lives in a way that’s pleasing to God. That’s our mission, and with the help of some of the most resonant voices in the church, in business and in pop culture, we’re helping single men and women to be victorious in their personal, professional and spiritual lives.” ~ Pastor Keion Henderson
The Well Experience: 50 Shades of Single featured powerful panels aimed at helping single men and women enhance all areas of their lives. Anthony O’Neal shared practical tips on money management in his session, “How to Handle Your Singles While You’re Single.”
Evelyn Braxton of WE TV’s Braxton Family Values brought the house down with a session entitled #HowBoutThat, impressing upon the audience that “Sometimes we worship the creature over the creator, but we are to follow them as they follow Christ.” In a session facilitated by Dr. Jazz Sculark , singles were challenged to remember that their inheritance is not just tied to anyone but to the one who wakes them up in the morning.
Sermons delivered by Pastor Keion Henderson and Pastor Samuel Rodriguez were filled with powerful messages designed to uplift and empower attendees. Pastor Rodriguez encouraged single men and women in attendance to not be defined by the fires that they go through, but rather the fire inside of them. Dr. Sculark also provided a sermon on Friday night.
The Kyssi Andrews Foundation, honored with a complimentary vendor space at the conference, also was in attendance. The organization was created to honor the life of Khyrstin Andrews, a young Houston girl diagnosed with an aggressive form of pediatric cancer. The foundation helps other families better understand the condition and find peace, and also supports research efforts. Not only was the foundation a valuable resource for event attendees, but in connecting with Pastor Keion, the family was able to get support and healing.
“We want to build the men and women of this community up,” said Pastor Henderson. “Where there is a void, we want to fill it. Where there is hurt, we want to provide healing.”
In addition to the two-day conference lineup of panels, musical performances and worship experiences, the event featured a pre-event mixer, featuring Christian comedy, jazz and more. The event also included an exclusive red carpet, hosted by TBN’s Genet Chenier.
