Special Guest - Todd Tilghman - Winner of NBC's The Voice 2020!!

Todd Tilghman won over the hearts of millions on NBC’s The Voice. The father of eight and then-lead pastor of Cornerstone Church in Meridian, Mississippi, charmed viewers with his “country soul” music and went on to take Team Blake [Shelton] to the top, securing a win as the champion of Season 18.

After his time on the hit show, Todd dove head-first into his music career and even made the move from Mississippi to Tennessee to be closer to the action of Music City. 

He has just released a book with his wife called “Every Little Win,” which tells how their focus on joy and celebrating every little win has helped them to overcome numerous challenges over their twenty-plus-year marriage. 

Todd will be leading worship and presenting a mini-concert on Monday night of the Comeback Conference before Pastor Ronnie Phillips releases the message, “Are You Ready for a Comeback?”



On Tuesday, we’ll have a Next Gen Min Roundtable. Pastor Ken Hartley will lead the discussion with a panel of young and up and coming pastors from around the nation who will all take your questions and talk about next generation ministry.
