What can be more uplifting than praising the Lord and learning about Him through song and rousing talks given by some of the most dynamic Christian leaders in the world?

PBA does exactly that over several days each semester for Christival, a long-standing PBA tradition of praise, worship and learning. Christival began in the 1980s, making it the longest-standing conference at PBA.

Speaker: Dr. Eric Mason

Dr. Eric Mason is a gifted preacher and author and can be used in a very powerful way. Dr. Mason graduated with BS in Psychology from Bowie State University, a Master of Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, and a Doctoral degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.   He is the founding and lead pastor of Epiphany Fellowship in Philadelphia, PA and author of four books, Manhood Restored, Beat God to the Punch, Unleashed, and Woke Church. Dr. Mason has become known for his unquenchable passion to see the glory of Jesus Christ robustly and relevantly engaged in broken cities with the comprehensive gospel. Urban ministry is the heartbeat of his ministry and calling.

“Christival is an opportunity for the entire PBA community to wholeheartedly engage God in worship and the Word, and it also sets the stage for PBA as a whole to say, ‘Come, Holy Spirit. Have your way.’' -- Bernie Cueto, Ph.D., Campus Pastor, Palm Beach Atlantic University
