Brilliance23 is our way of saying ‘Yes’ to the Father’s invitation to spend three days encountering His heart for every circumstance in our lives. As we partner with God, He'll show us that the brilliance in you is CHRIST in you"

- Graham Cooke
A letter to the Beloved from Graham Cooke | Conference Host
Santa Barbara - August 2023


It breaks the Father’s heart to see believers overwhelmed by their challenges.

- it’s all too common for believers to end up this way.

Since COVID, over 15,000,000 believers walked away from the church in one way or another...
These believers tried to do everything they were taught: they read their bibles, attended small groups, joined programs, and listened to the latest messages...

all which lead to no real change…

for themselves...

For their families...

Or for the world around them...

These Believers have become disillusioned with what the church is offering...

They're tired of being under their circumstances despite all this genuine effort.

Whether they’ve left the church or not...

they’re looking for more.

They want whatever it is the Jesus died to give them, but honestly, don't know how that applies to daily life...

These same people are often surprised to learn it’s not their fault...

The way they were learning was NEVER going to produce what they were looking for...

What's even more surprising for them is God knows how exactly how they feel, and has a plan to be with them...

His plan is for them to see his kindness and let it overtake the circumstances around them.
It's easy to forget that God isn’t interested in judgment; he’s not angry;

He’s interested in teaching you to live knowing His heart towards you

it's what we call His brilliant perspective.

What if you could learn to be with God in your being, living and thinking...

Brilliance23 is our first of it’s kind virtual conference by me & Team Brilliant.

This virtual conference is nothing like anything we've done before.
