Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our 2017 State Conference Website.

We’re so excited about our upcoming conference this year, believing that it won’t just be another amazing conference, but because of our theme and speakers, it will truly be even more amazing than usual.

This year’s theme is “Generations”. When God spoke life into humanity it was always with generations in mind, and again when He birthed the Church it was for the generations.

The Gospel and the Church were never for a single generation, but it was always the plan and will of God that the generations would stand side by side and flourish together. This conference will be both a celebration and a lesson in how this might be accomplished.

Our guest speakers are a father and son who are a living example of all that we’re looking to promote. Pastor Glen and Micah Berteau are a father and son combination that are doing great things at The House Modesto, and I have no doubt they’ll be a great blessing to us at conference. And if you don’t have a natural son to work with, the principles can be transferred between Spiritual Fathers and Mothers and Spiritual Sons and Daughters.

You really don’t want to miss out on conference! Please do all you can to join us, and if there is anything we can do to assist you or your teams, please contact our office and let our team know.

Many blessings, hope to see you there,

Shane Baxter
President, ACC Victoria


Ps Glen Berteau

The House Modesto, USA

Glen was a high school All American Running Back and accepted a scholarship to Louisiana Tech University. As a four year starter, he was All Conference, won two National Championships, and was Most Outstanding Back for three out of four years. During his freshman year in college someone told him he needed to be saved to go to Heaven. Berteau responded, “Saved from what?” Kneeling on the floor of his dormitory room, Berteau accepted Jesus Christ on April 30, 1973. As a Youth Pastor, he established one of the largest youth ministries in the nation. He is the author of the youth manual, “Strategies for Advancing Youth Ministries.” More recently, he has authored two books, “Christianity Lite” and “Christianity To Go.” Presently, Glen is Senior Pastor of The House in Modesto, California, a church of more than 8,000. This ministry in Central California has been explosive. All outreaches at The House Modesto total over 160,000 people won to the Lord. In 2009, The House Modesto was highlighted by Outreach Magazine as the Second Fastest Growing Church in America. Currently it is in the Top 50 Largest Churches in America.

As a gifted speaker, teacher, and evangelist, Glen has ministered at conferences, churches, camps and conventions all over the world.

Ps Micah Berteau

The House Modesto, USA

Micah Berteau has grown up in the house of God.  Micah, along with his wife Lindsey, are the youth Pastors of Heart&Soul and Stadium Youth & Young Adult Ministries at The House in Modesto, California.  Micah influences hundreds of young people on a weekly basis.  He has led events with over 2,000 people in attendance and has had the privilege to see thousands of people saved.  Micah is a dynamic, powerful, and enthusiastic speaker. He carries an anointing to speak not only to the youth, but to all generations. His passion and love for God is refreshing and contagious.  Micah has a heart for evangelism and a desire to see the youth and young adults of this generation intimately know Jesus and boldly make him known.
