City Impact Conference
July 25, 2015
Warfield Theater @ San Francisco
The San Francisco City Impact Conference takes over the historic Warfield Theater in the heart of San Francisco on July 25, 2015 for a conference unlike other conferences! Be filled with worship and be soaked in the word with our guest speakers challenging us to Reimagine Church—our Conference theme this year. Then immediately hit the streets of the Tenderloin (TL) to engage in 30 outreaches with us in the inner city of San Francisco. Join us as 2,000 people gather for this ONE DAY experience intervening for the Tenderloin district as one passionate body!
Pastor, speaker and author of a New York Times Bestseller "Crazy Love"
Francis Chan is the founding pastor of Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, CA, starting the church in 1994. In May 2010, he left Cornerstone to work directly in mission with the poor locally and internationally. He is also the Chancellor and Founder of Eternity Bible College and serves on the board of directors for Children’s Hunger Fund, an international humanitarian aid foundation to assist the poor, and on the board for World Impact, an inner city missions organization dedicated to planting churches among the urban poor in America.
His two books, Crazy Love a New York Times Bestseller and Forgotten God, were immediate bestsellers hitting several national bestseller lists. Chan has given all author royalties for Crazy Love to the Isaiah 58 Fund.
Lead Pastor of The Dream Center and Angelus Temple in Los Angeles
Matthew Barnett, New York Times Best Selling Author, and pastor of one of America’s fastest growing churches, is one of the most dynamic voices God is using in Christianity today. Son of Pastor Tommy Barnett, best-selling author, church growth pioneer, and founder of what Time Magazine noted as “One of the three largest churches in America,” Pastor Matthew has learned powerful principles of ministry, which have gifted him in founding The Dream Center in Los Angeles in 1994, starting an international movement reaching from South America to Sweden. As a church in SoCal that remains open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, The Dream Center would serve the inner cities’ physical and spiritual needs, bringing a message of hope to the seemingly hopeless.
Pastor and Executive Director of San Francisco City Impact
Christian Huang has been serving as the Executive Director of SF City Impact since 2011. Christian resigned from his national sales position in health care after receiving a call from a friend who survived being sex-trafficked only four blocks away from SFCI’s main campus. Intervening for the Tenderloin district in San Francisco for over thirty years, SFCI is a leading voice in urban ministry and in mobilizing people to intervene on behalf of others in the inner city. As a local church for the Tenderloin district, SFCI meets the community's needs through its wide range of outreach ministries. With a burden to see the inner cities revived, SFCI believes San Francisco is an epicenter where SFCI’s model of ministry can be scaled and deployed to other inner cities throughout the nation.

The Warfield is a historic venue and has been a San Francisco institution for 86 years. Opened on May 13, 1922, it was built by showman and theatre chain owner Marcus Loew, who named the showplace after his old friend David Warfield, a native San Franciscan who began as an usher and grew to be one of the greatest silent film actors of his time. The Warfield was originally built as a vaudeville and movie palace and became a concert hall in 1979 when Bill Graham Presents booked a two week run of shows with Bob Dylan. The esteemed hall has been rocking ever since. Now operated by Goldenvoice (the creator of Coachella and Stagecoach festivals) the venue is keeping with its illustrious past. Everyone has played The Warfield. Today, the entertainment has continued to range from artists such as Bob Dylan, Faith No More, Prince, The Killers, Kings of Leon to Adele, as well as played host to charitable fundraisers for organizations such as GLIDE Memorial Church and Tipping Point.
