Honorable Bob McEwen
(Pre-Convention Seminar, Thursday Morning)

"His clear and humorous speaking style will leave you with answers to questions you have always had, but didn't know who to ask." This is a statement often heard about Bob McEwen. In conferences around the globe, this former Congressman from Ohio uncovers why God and free enterprise makes America the envy of the world. "If we lose our appreciation for those two pillars of 'Right' and "Work,'" says Mr. McEwen, "we will see the disintegration of the great American culture."

Bob McEwen was chosen by his colleagues to be a member of the coveted Intelligence Committee as well as the Rules Committee, which oversees all legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives. He was also a member of the U.S. delegation to the European Parliament for 10 years. Currently, he serves as the Executive Director of the Washington-based Council for National Policy.

ENTERTAINMENT

Distributors will be able to listen to special musical performances on Friday and Saturday evening at Conklin National Convention.

Casting Crowns

Casting Crowns

One of the hottest groups in Christian music will be the featured entertainment at Conklin’s 2019 National Convention. Casting Crowns is the second-fastest Christian band in history to have their first two albums certified platinum. The group has sold more than 10 million records and have earned the title of Billboard’s top-selling act in Christian music since 2007.

The group was nominated for six American Music Awards, winning Best Contemporary Inspirational Artist in 2007, 2011, 2014, and 2015. With five nominations, the group won Billboard Music Awards’ Top Christian Artist and Top Christian Album for Come to the Well in 2012. Casting Crowns has been nominated for 37 Dove Awards, winning 15 of those nominations from 2005-2011.  In addition, they have been nominated for four Grammy Awards and won for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel for Lifesong in 2006.

Casting Crowns’ intimate songs, upbeat and fresh tracks, and impactful lyrics that center around the gospel will fill your soul at the President's Concert following the President’s Club Awards.


Cana's Voice

Cana's Voice

Iconic gospel singers Jody McBrayer, TaRanda Greene, and Doug Anderson have united their talents to form the incredible vocal group, Cana’s Voice. Little did each of these singers know that personal life lessons learned while walking with God through difficult times would one day lead them to a new way to share the Lord’s work through Cana’s Voice. From the moment they met to discuss the possibility of forming a new group, these three award-winning musicians realized God was doing something unique.

This trio found their group identity and name from the John 2 account of Jesus turning water into wine at a wedding feast in Cana. As this group uses the stage to minister from personal experience of persevering through life’s difficulties, Cana’s Voice is helping countless individuals understand the importance of pressing on through hard times and believing that God has a greater plan.

Cana’s Voice uses the music industry as a way to help change lives on stage at the 2019 Conklin National Convention as Saturday night’s Gala Banquet entertainment.
