Catalyst Atlanta 2017 Carlos Whittaker

Today, I’m live-blogging the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta. The next speaker I’ll be live-blogging about is Carlos Whittaker.

Carlos is a People’s Choice Award winner, a former recording artist signed to a major label, a social media maven, and currently spends the majority of his time writing books (recently released Kill The Spider) and speaking on stages around the world.

Carlos Whittaker Of Good Courage Catalyst Atlanta


Being human is hard. But there is hope.

Sin creeps in. It sits in the corner. And we keep letting sin sit there.

The good news is, there is hope. There is hope in surrender.

We have to get to the point where we’re not striving for courage. Courage is found in surrender.

Surrender looks different for everyone.

Carlos’ father was a preacher and he was doing a revival. A lady came to him and asked him to pray that God will clean the cobwebs. He prayed for her.

Speaker lineup for Catalyst Atlanta 2017 Of Good Courage

I’ve attended the Catalyst conference for the last 6 or 7 years. Every year I walk away with my mind blown. No doubt, this year will be the same.

The theme for Catalyst Atlanta 2017 is Of Good Courage. That alone should be a reason for attending the Catalyst conference. But I’m honestly excited for the theme.
