Y&F - we are Hillsong Church's youth ministry by name, but by identity we are a people who have found hope, salvation, joy, forgiveness and a future in Jesus Christ. Songs arising from Young & Free are unlike anything that has done before and we believe that through them young people will find life and deep, unending joy in Jesus at Two52 this year. Y&F is simply and genuinely... US. The voice of THIS generation. Bringing a new sound and giving expression to what God is doing in our youth now.
In 2003, Kent and Alli launched the Two52 Conference in a small room with just under 100 young people with a passion to see teens encounter Jesus in a real and relevant way. Today the Two52 conference and movement has impacted thousands and continues to grow each and every year. Kent and Alli are the lead pastors of City Church Chicago. Their passion is to LOVE people, BUILD the Church, and CHANGE the world. Sharing a heart to make a difference in the world around them, together they strive to live each day to the fullest, extending their reach and partnership with social justice organizations and churches across the world every chance they get.
Pastor Carl Lentz is the lead pastor of Hillsong NYC. He is sought after as one of the foremost evangelists and voices of our generation. Carl and his wife Laura have been a long time part of the Two52 family. They currently reside in Brooklyn, NY with their three incredible kids.
John currently serves as an Associate Pastor at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas under the leadership of Pastor Joel Osteen. Prior to John serving at Lakewood Church he was a cast member in a touring stage play starring Grammy Award winning Gospel artist Kirk Franklin and The Family. From there, God began to open doors that allowed John to serve God while utilizing his gifts of music, comedy, and preaching. Not content to simply be known as a singular gift, John uses all the gifts that God has given him to reach people with hope, healing, forgiveness and freedom found in Jesus Christ. John Gray is Two52 Family, having been a part of the conference for many years!
