“I Give Up”

To a sellout crowd of 900 people at the 2019 Connect Silicon Valley Annual Breakfast, bestselling author Patrick Lencioni, and Salesforce senior director, Sue Warnke, delivered powerful messages of transformation. Both Lencioni and Warnke are highly successful achievement-oriented people who found that achievement is not ultimately fulfilling; only God is. When we give up control of our lives to God, amazing things can happen.

Patrick’s and Sue’s stories are quite different but their messages are the same. God transforms lives when we surrender to Him.

If you attended the event, the videos will refresh your memory of the powerful messages by Patrick and Sue. If you were not able to attend, you now have the opportunity to see these compelling videos.
