Now Revolution Conference with Gary Keesee

Gary Keesee at the Now Revolution Conference

Just flew back in yesterday from this weekend’s “Now Revolution Conference” in Columbus, Ohio, where it was my honor to have the opportunity meet with quite a few entrepreneurs, business owners, and future business owners to talk about marketing in the 21st Century.

My wife and I met Gary and Drenda Keesee last year when they were in town for the Sarasota Financial Revolution Conference. Since that time, they’ve completely revamped the conference, giving it a new name and a new focus. They’ve also completed construction on “The Now Center” in New Albany, Ohio — just outside of Columbus. This past weekend, they hosted the first major conference in that facility and it was absolutely stellar.

Gary’s message is targeted at helping individuals discover and pursue their God-given destiny and to unashamedly achieve financial freedom in the process. These are issues that I’m personally very passionate about, which is the reason that we created our Christian entrepreneurship and business excellence events.

I was honored this weekend to share the platform with not just Gary, but the others who had impactful things to share:

  • Drenda Keesee — powerhouse in her on right, having journeyed with, encouraged and motivated Gary in their journey from enslavement to financial freedom. Arguably some of the biggest testaments to her own giftings are their children, whom she home-schooled and developed into some significant young people.  After briefly meeting their daughter, Amy, and son, Tom, I can tell you first-hand that they and their siblings are showing signs of greatness.
  • Johnny Hocott — a key player in the Forward Financial Group who I met several months ago when he spent some time here in Sarasota. Johnny is focused on developing and training new leaders and I’ve seen firsthand some of the fruit of his labors in some of the people here in our city.
  • Mike Healy — a dynamic and compelling motivator and trainer who is clearly out to win! Mike enjoys cagefighting, which I must confess is something I don’t much about… but it sounds, shall we say… violent? Mike and his wife went from getting eviction notices to a 6-figure income in a 12-month time span and has plenty of important things to share with anyone looking to achieve success.

I couldn’t say enough good things about the event staff, from Jason Freudiger and Amy Taylor to the media staff all the way through to the volunteers. The event ran smoothly despite the inevitable last-minute changes and adjustments. Everyone made the experience a pleasant one.

Did We Meet?

    Hi April,

    While I very much appreciate you visiting the site and commenting, this is truly not a forum to disparage the business practices of anyone.

    This post is written about a conference conducted by Gary Keesee’s teaching ministry and about the valuable service he and his ministry team are providing by conveying solid Biblical concepts about money, business and financial success, etc.

    How Forward Financial Group conducts its business will simply not be debated here. I haven’t written about it. I haven’t investigated it, and frankly it is simply irrelevant to the topic at hand.

    It appears that you have some axe to grind with Forward Financial Group and/or with A.L. Williams. If that’s the case, please take it up directly with whomever it is with whom you have an issue.

    For this reason, I have removed the substance of your post (especially the portions copied from an appeals court decision which has absolutely nothing to do with Gary Keesee nor with Forward Financial Group). I trust you understand and respect my reasons for doing so.

    Best Wishes,

    David G. Johnson, Founder
    Epiphany Marketing, LLC

  8. Hello Gary and Drenda Keesee,

    My question is about your section on page 192 – 193 sell your Life Insurance Policy. Could you refer me to an agency that provides this service here in Toronto,Ontario, Canada?
