Ignite Your Purpose. Ignite Your Passion. Ignite Your Life. Faith Explosion 2005 Leadership Conference Integrates Business, Finance and Personal Development.

MESA, Ariz. -- Faith Explosion 2005, slated for Nov. 6 through 11, 2005, at the Living Word in Mesa, Ariz., will showcase the insights and teachings of eight nationally acclaimed speakers around the theme of "Ignite your purpose. Ignite your passion. Ignite your life."

This year the conference will include presenters and workshops on personal finance. "In today's world it has become increasingly important to address -- and meet -- every need of our congregation," said Dr. C. Thomas Anderson, pastor of Living Word, author of "Becoming a Millionaire God's Way" and host of the Faith Explosion conference.

"This year's conference promises participants explosive growth and personal self-development," said Anderson. He added that this "explosive growth" is spiritual growth -- a growth that enhances every aspect of their lives. Anderson expects 6,000 attendees during the five-day conference. Living Word has hosted this event for the past 10 years.

Included in this year's roster of keynote speakers are financial experts who will support the addition of a "Personal Finance" workshop series at the conference. Among them is Robert Kiyosaki, Valley resident and author of the international best seller "Rich Dad Poor Dad."

On the heels of a guest appearance on Dr. Anderson's television show, Kiyosaki joined T.D. Jakes, bishop and founder of The Potter's House, at his annual MegaFest event in Atlanta last August.

The five-day conference, which attracts participants from across the country, will feature T.D. Jakes, Jesse Duplantis, Kenneth Copeland, Maureen Anderson, Bob Harrison, Gloria Copeland and Tom Anderson. Jakes, who speaks to millions each week via nationally and internationally televised ministries, will close the conference on the evening of Thursday, Nov. 10.

Attendees will participate in workshops on Business Development, Employee Development and Leadership, Personal Development, Church Growth, Personal Finance, and Home and Family.

Barb Pruitt, a Phoenix resident who attended the 2004 Faith Explosion conference, called it a "phenomenal event" that both "inspired and empowered" her.

Richard Taylor, who has produced the Faith Explosion conferences for the past three years, concurred: "Faith Explosion was created as a vehicle for personal growth, spiritual growth and business growth." He added that the event will be taped and televised nationally.

Faith Explosion Events for 2005 include Breakfast with Bob Harrison, Breakfast with T.D. Jakes, an open house hosted by pastors and ministers, and a golf tournament.

Living Word is located at 3520 E. Brown Road in Mesa. Complimentary childcare and Spanish translation are available. For additional information, visit or or call 800-FAITHX.

About Living Word

Living Word, located at 3520 E. Brown Road in Mesa, Ariz., was established by Rev. C. Tom Anderson in 1986 and, today, ministers to a congregation of more than 6,500 members. Anderson hosts a television show -- "Winners Today" -- that airs on FOX, UPN, DayStar and TBN networks each week.

The Living Word Bible Church began with a vision that God placed in the hearts of the Andersons to establish a church that would focus on building strong families and become a training center for the church body. It began meeting in a small structure in Apache Junction, Ariz., in November 1986 with a congregation of 80 people. In less than four months, attendance had tripled and Living Word had to relocate to a nearby location that was big enough to hold the rapidly growing congregation. Today -- with 6,500 members -- the church ministries are based from its church at Brown and Val Vista roads in Mesa.

Anderson and his wife Maureen, a national speaker and author of "Making Impossibilities Possible," also host a weekly television show. They reside in Mesa.
