Remember CRAVE Conference 2016 …
























In 2015, our keynote speaker was Brandon Wallace!





Brandon Wallace grew up wearing a mask. He put it on around friends and family, and when going to work as a youth pastor in a very conservative church in Arkansas. In January of 2012, Brandon took off his mask and came out of the closet.

Straight-Face is his story – see the trailer here:

Conference 2014 featured Jennifer Knapp

JKnappPressImage1_8x10_hiresHighly recognized as a premier artist in the Christian Contemporary Music genre, singer-songwriter Jennifer Knapp stepped out and released a mainstream indie album Letting Go in 2010. In that same year she publicly came out as a lesbian. This noteworthy story was initially published by Reuters, The Advocate, Christianity Today and (links below) and was quickly followed by an interview on Larry King Live and countless stories in news outlets and blogs across the world.

A controversial subject for many, Jennifer’s graceful poise and willingness to speak on behalf of LGBT people of faith has created a new role for her as an advocate. In 2011, she launched the Inside Out Faith series to engage this social justice dialogue. At these presentations, conducted mainly in Churches and Universities Jennifer weaves her narrative with her music while sharing candid revelations of her experiences as a gay person of faith.

Knapp’s impressive history includes selling over one million albums with her previous releases Kansas (debut 1998), Lay It Down (2000), and The Way I Am (2001). The Kansas-born musician has toured the globe with artists such as Jars of Clay and was featured on both the 1999 & 2010 Lilith Fair tour.

Knapp has received great critical acclaim with The Los Angeles Times calling her “a rising star” and People Magazine describing her as “an uncommonly literate songwriter.” She is the winner of 4 Dove Awards and has received 2 Grammy nominations.
