Main Session Speakers

John Turnipseed Executive Vice President of Urban Ventures Leadership Foundation, Minneapolis MN Sought after national television and radio speaker featured on numerous platforms including: TedX, CBN 700 Club, TBN, and WCCO.

John is a former gang leader, pimp and drug dealer, who spent his childhood battling demons brought on by a volatile, abusive father. Now a pastor, speaker, and community leader serving and empowering young people in the same Minneapolis gang territory as his violent past.

John’s life-changing turnaround fueled his passion for rebuilding relationships between fathers and their families. His story powerfully demonstrates how faith, hope, and forgiveness backed up by persevering mentors and role models are essential for real and relevant transformation. It also encourages us all to never give up on people.

His life transformation is highlighted in the book "Bloodline" and the nominated film "Turnipseed"
