Have you ever hoped and maybe even waited with anticipation to be invited to the party that everyone wanted to go to? Well, consider this your personal invitation to join us for a memorable and life-changing weekend. We would love for you and the girls in your world to come and experience what God has for us this year.
With all the isolation we have experienced for the last few months, we need this chance to gather together! We have added an online option for those that aren’t quite ready to be with a larger group of people.
This year our theme is Awaken, Warrior! With all that has gone on in the world in the last few months, it’s time for us to rise up, go to battle, step into our calling, and release our boldness into the world. The world is waiting for her to wake up and become who she is supposed to be!
“A warrior filled with wisdom ascends into the high places and releases regional breakthrough, bringing down the strongholds of the mighty.”
Proverbs 21:22, The Passion Translation
Chrissy Toledo’s mission is to see people’s hearts healed as they encounter the presence of God. As the daughter of Jim and Carol Cymbala, founding pastors of the Brooklyn Tabernacle in New York, Chrissy grew up around the things of God. After straying from the Lord in her teenage years, He rescued her as a single mom at 19. It is through that experience of God’s redemption and love that enables Chrissy to minister heart to heart with audiences. Her testimony has encouraged many as it is found in her memoir, Girl in the Song, as well as her father’s book, Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire. God called Chrissy into full-time ministry at the age of twenty, and she has been leading in Music ministry for most of her ministry.
She is the Executive Director of Music and Live Production at Chicago Tabernacle, pioneered by she and her husband, Pastor Al Toledo, in 2002. Pastor Al and Chrissy are passionate about Biblical discipleship and have released an online platform called DNA of a Leader, with the sole purpose of seeing people become privately healthy and publicly fruitful.
Chrissy finds joy in life’s blessings, great and small: savoring silly times with her grandkids, delighting in sweet fellowship with her “girls” at Chicago Tabernacle, and discovering the perfect pair of shoes! She is blessed to have married her best friend, Al Toledo; they have three adult children and 4 handsome grandsons! Her passion is to love people in such a way that they feel liberated to experience the love of Christ at a whole new level and empowered to share this great love with others.
