Susan Sparks will be the keynote speaker. Susan was invited to be the keynote speaker of the 2012 CBF/GA Fall General Assembly but Superstorm Sandy intervened. She is the senior pastor of Madison Avenue Baptist Church in New York City (and the first woman pastor in its 165-year history). Susan is also a professional comedian, touring with the nationally acclaimed Laugh in Peace Tour featuring Susan, a standup rabbi, and a Muslim comic. She has been featured in O (The Oprah) Magazine, the New York Times, USA Today, on CBS News The Early Show, ABC and CNN and in numerous comedy clubs. A featured blogger for Huffington Post and Psychology Today, her book, Laugh Your Way to Grace: Reclaiming the Spiritual Power of Humor, has sold over ten thousand copies.
