We embrace our mandate to raise and equip youth with God’s truth and grace, and engage the difficult questions about identity, sexual purity and healthy relationships. In the midst of heartfelt worship, powerful messages, and prayer, youth will experience God’s healing and affirmation in a tangible way.
Facing the real emotions of your heart without fear.
Know your value in Christ.

Featuring Guest Speaker, Brittni De La Mora
A life transformed from pain to purity, from misery to hope and life in Christ. Brittni, formerly a world famous porn star, will share how she was bound to the chains of suffering as she endured the Adult Film Industry. Be impacted by her story of the power of God’s love. Brittni has appeared on ABC’s “The View” and National Geographic’s “Drugs, Inc.” Brittni and her husband, Richard De La Mora of Cornerstone Church of San Diego, long to see the rising generation of youth walk in their God-given destiny.
We are thrilled to not only feature Brittni De La Mora at our FACE IT event, but unexpectedly the Lord has blessed us with CJ Emulous, a world famous rapper, who will perform at FACE IT. He and his wife will also share their testimony of their purity journey! Come and be blessed by this man of God who is also a youth pastor and a Hawaiian island boy.
More about CJ Emulous:
CJ Emulous, who lived in Hawaii for several years during his teen years, is an internationally recognized rap artist and speaker, and pastors youth and young adults at New Life Community Church in the Sacramento region. CJ struggled through rebellion and at 19 years old, he had everything that he could ever want. He started performing at clubs and events in Hawaii – everything was going according to plan until he got busted on possession of drugs and a firearm. But, God’s mercy was upon him even in facing prison time He rescued him. Now CJ gives back to the community and is a full-time Christian Rap artist, speaker, mentor, and youth minister. He has spoken at the churches of T.D. Jakes, Andre Crouch, and Bishop Noel Jones. He has also had the opportunity to perform with Flame, Everyday Process, J.R., Keisha Cole, Jesus Culture, and Too Short just to name a few. He’s also partnering with Luis Palau and Rick Warren. God captured CJ’s heart and gave him a burden for this generation to see Jesus in truth and not based on culture or a false religious view. He is anointed, entertaining and gifted at articulating Gods word in a relevant way!
