From Portland, Oregon, McKee has spoken to youth and young adults in colleges and churches in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, and Australia. He's coached leaders from Columbia University, Google, Microsoft and Facebook. A former newspaper reporter and party guy, Sam became a Christian during his college years through a homeless man and an energetic African-American Church near Chicago. Now he loves to share the joy he’s found in Christ with anyone who’s searching for something more.
Sam served as a youth pastor and lead snowboarder at churches in Colorado and California before becoming the senior pastor of the Sunnyvale Adventist Church (CA), which serves the people of Silicon Valley. His church was full of young adults, many of whom worked at high-tech companies like Google, Apple and Intel. The church launched 36 Life Groups around the Bay Area and touched many lives. In 2008, he moved to the Portland, Oregon area to plant a church for people who are far from church but hungry for God.
In his free time, Sam enjoys hockey, football, snowboarding and especially hanging out with his surfer/pastor/actress wife. They keep busy rafting, snowboarding and exploring the beautiful Northwest with their two children, who have more energy than the sun.
GODencounters Conference is free and open to the community, sponsored by Younger Generation Church, the vibrant young adult ministry of the Arlington Seventh-day Adventist Church. For information go to www.YGchurch.com
