Along with speaker Jefferson Bethke and worship leader Davy Flowers
Compassion LIVE presents Bible teacher, author and visionary Jennie Allen's 2020 "The Get Out of Your Head" Tour. Joining Allen on this special night will be New York Times best-selling author Jefferson Bethke and worship leader Davy Flowers. The evening will be based off Allen's forthcoming book, “Get Out of Your Head,” which will be available in January 2020.
The show will take place at the Browncroft Community Church in Rochester on March 29. Click for tickets.
"Every single one of us is facing a war in our minds, stuck in toxic thoughts we can’t break free from," Allen said. "These nights are a chance to say ‘No more!'; to let God’s word speak into these places in our lives where we’re living stuck, ineffective and alone. Let’s worship together, ground ourselves in truth, and walk out freer than ever before."
On this tour, Allen will share Biblical viewpoints to discover how to submit one’s mind to Christ – to surrender every thought to Jesus. It will be an evening of worship and teaching that will walk participants through Scripture and give practical tools to stop, as the press release said, “the spiral of toxic thoughts and realize the God-given power you have over them.”
"People can expect a night of leaning into what the scriptures say about what makes us whole," Bethke said. "So many of us are running and chasing in so many frantic directions, but what if the path of life isn't just what Jesus did, but the pace and cadence Jesus had?"
Supporting the evening topics and discussions will also be a time to worship with Flowers.
"Genuine discipleship is marked by a life of taking action," Flowers said. "Faith expressing itself through love on every level, in every sphere and every space. Compassion International has so gloriously and faithfully displayed that reality in their ministry through the years. To say that that I am honored and over the moon to be a part of this movement through this particular tour doesn’t feel like good enough words. I am expecting God to move, and I am expecting every heart willing to respond to be radically impacted by the message of Christ's fierce love reaching every part of our souls and every corner of this world."

A recording artist, a songwriter and worship leader, Flowers currently resides in Jackson, Mississippi, where she serves on the worship staff at Pinelake Church. Originating from Houston, Flowers has been leading worship and writing music since her teenager years where she came to radical and all-encompassing faith in Christ. Her music and ministry flows from a heart that longs to see Jesus rightly treasured for who he is, and to see hearts radically transformed by the love and presence of a very real and very personal savior. Davy recently released her debut EP entitled “I Belong Here,” which paints the picture of her personal journey out of abandonment and isolation and into the glorious realization that “home” is a person. She said, “The person of Christ and the place where we are fully known, fully loved, fully accepted, fully enjoyed is with him and in him. That is a home to which nothing can be added or taken away.” Follow her @davyflowers.
