We all know that much of the news today isn’t pretty. Whether it’s uncontained forest fires, political battles, chemical wars or local crime – it is almost impossible to find something positive to take away.
But just when you think it might be easier to stick your head in the sand and call it a day, something good comes along that is worth listening to. It might be a report on a kind gesture or a down-on-his-luck lottery winner. Whatever the story may be, it’s refreshing. It makes us smile.
Millions of Americans are certainly beaming today as the doors open at MegaFest 2013 in Dallas, TX. This family-friendly event is all about inspiring one another – giving well over 100,000 attendees this experience through empowering sessions, panel discussions, high-energy performances by award-winning musical artists, and cutting-edge special events for all ages.
MegaFest features faith mega-stars such as T.D. Jakes, named “America’s Best Preacher” by Time Magazine and senior pastor of The Potter’s House, a 30,000-member church in Dallas. World-renowned televangelist and author Joel Osteen, Pastor of Lakewood Church is also year’s guest speaker at MegaFest. And if that lineup isn’t inspiring enough, Oprah Winfrey will also be headlining the event, taping two Oprah’s Lifeclass sessions, with in-depth conversations between Oprah and Bishop TD Jakes on the importance of family. To top it all off, Grammy-winner Jennifer Hudson will be performing as well.
Bluefin Payment Systems is a leading provider of processing solutions for the faith-based industry, and is proud to call T.D. Jakes their client. Having spoken at the recent T.D. Jakes Annual Conference, Ruston Miles, Bluefin’s Chief of Product Innovation, talked about the importance of technology in the church. And this year, Bluefin is proud to handle payment processing for product sales, registrations and donations for MegaFest.
