Lance & Laurie Coffman
Lance and Laurie Coffman are high school sweethearts and have been married for over 20 years now. They have three amazing kids, Nate, Nick and Noelle. If you know anything about the Coffmans, you will know that family is their highest priority.
Currently, they are the Senior Pastors of Inspire Church located in Lodi, Ca. Laurie is the founder and president of The Hope Initiative. The Hope Initiative is a non-profit that is on a mission to eradicate sex trafficking through rescue, awareness, and education.
Lance and Laurie Coffman launched The Dream Summit in 2016. The Coffmans have a strong belief that they serve a big God and because of that we should dream massive God sized dreams, dreams that change the world. They believe the dream is the language of Heaven and when the Father wants to launch something or shift something on earth he gives a man or woman a dream.
At the heart of the Summit was a desire to create a gathering for the dreamers of the world to come and to meet other dreamers. No one quite gets a dreamer like another dreamer. Dreamers often stand alone because they see the future before anyone else does and because of this they often feel like they are on the outside looking in. Because of the family culture that marks the summit those in attendance feel like they are at a family gathering more than a conference
Kelly Cardenas is an industry icon, author, international educator for John Paul Mitchell Systems, Business Coach, Salon Owner, husband and Father. He attributes the success of his five namesake salons, located in Las Vegas, Chicago, Carlsbad, Salt Lake City, and the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas, to the team that has been constructed around him. Cardenas’ concept of integrity based success has conditioned his team of trend-setting stylists to reach exponential heights as salons as well as individual beauty professionals.
Cardenas’ upbringing is where he draws the majority of his inspiration. Having two amazing parents who taught him discipline, hard work, humility, and most importantly that anything was possible as long as you are willing to put in the work, prepared him for the uncertainty of Business and life.
Kelly Cardenas Salon has a culture of hairdressers that deliver five-star service without the ego and supports the mission that everyone who experiences their environment should be treated like an A-list celebrity. The salon has become the industry standard for service, consistency and up-to-the-minute technique.
Public speaking has been a personal passion for Kelly Cardenas for the past 26 years. He started as a student taking every class he could find involving public speaking; as long as he could take something away from the experience, he knew it was worthwhile. Kelly’s excitement for public speaking comes from the light bulb he sees turn on in people after sharing his encouraging words - words that have the power to change someone’s life. Kelly has had speaking appearances in Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, Shanghai and many more, worldwide.
Cardenas refers to his relationships as his most valuable currency and has set out to leave any environment he’s in better than the way he found it. Wanting to give back to the communities that have given him so much, Cardenas and his team are involved with multiple organizations including Aid for AIDS of Nevada, American Cancer Society Relay for Life, beauty industry favorite Eyes on Cancer, Showers of Blessings haircuts for homeless, Las Vegas Rescue Mission and Las Vegas Boys and Girls Clubs…among others.
Recently, Kelly Cardenas wrote his first book “The 6 Indicators for Business and Life,” serving as a roadmap to guide individuals through the necessary tools to evaluate and measure the character and integrity needed to drive the bottom line in business and excel in personal relationships. The book represents the foundation for how Kelly operates in both his personal and business arenas and is well received by all who read it.
Although his journey started in the professional beauty industry, Cardenas feels that it is simply his conduit to have the opportunity to invest in the most valuable commodity that has ever been...people!!!
When he’s not running his salons, Cardenas enjoys spending time with his wife Brooklyn, kids Makena and Maddox, and the family dog Skyler. in Carlsbad, CA.
