SPEAKING TOPICS

CHARACTER

It's not about what you become; it's about who you become. Jacob knows that what you become can be taken away, but who you become transcends circumstances.

PURPOSE

You are here ON PURPOSE and WITH PURPOSE. When you don't know why you are here, you settle for less. Jacob helps students connect with their purpose and set higher standards for themselves.

Your trials aren't meant to BREAK you; they're meant to MAKE you. Young people today are struggling with a wide variety of difficult circumstances.
