Our Guest Speaker Back by Popular Demand:
From the playing fields of Lompoc High School, along the Central Coast of California, Napoleon Kaufman in 1991 won a full scholarship to play football for the Huskies of The University of Washington. Upon finishing his senior year with the Huskies, the then two-time All-American and Heisman Trophy candidate became a first round draft pick for the Los Angeles Raiders. In 1995 Napoleon Kaufman began a professional football career that would span 6 years and would catapult him to elite status as a "premier" NFL running back. The athletic superstar from Lompoc, California had "made it" to the big time and was living the "dream" of every young boy who has ever played the game of football.
In response to the call of God in 2001, Napoleon retired from professional football and today is the Senior Pastor of The Well Christian Community in Dublin, California. Under the Spiritual covering of GateWay City Church in San Jose, California, The Well opened its doors for the first time on March 2, 2003. From a relatively modest beginning in a small 110 seat sanctuary in San Ramon, California, The Well relocated in June 2013 to its current 83,000 square foot facility in Livermore, California. The vision that God placed on the heart of Pastor Kaufman remains firmly rooted today as God continues to grow the ministry of The Well, both in breadth and depth.
Almost every year for the past 42, and recently in conjunction with the National Day of Prayer, this event has provided an opportunity for people from all Christian denominations to unite in corporate prayer for the nation, state and local Community. It is a broad based community event modeled after the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. This year, in conjunction with the National Day of Prayer, the focus will be on unity.
