Senior Pastor of Mosaic Church | Husband to Kim | Author | USA
“Jesus is waiting for you in your future, but He’s not waiting for you in your past. He’s trying to call you out of your past and into His future.”
As the Founder and Senior Pastor of Mosaic Church, Erwin McManus has created a culture where anyone can belong before they believe. Erwin believes that the church exists to declare the name of Jesus and to build a home for those who do not have one. Because of this, Mosaic Church has been named one of America’s ‘Most Influential Churches.’
Erwin is a revolutionary cultural pioneer. His church has become an influential community of faith in Los Angeles known for its diversity and social entrepreneurism. We are excited to host Erwin at ARISE Conference, and are believing that his messages will bring something innovative and creative to ARISE Conference and the nation of New Zealand.
