PLANO, Texas, Dec. 2, 2010 – The revolutionary I Am Second movement commemorated two years of outstanding growth and impact with a special birthday celebration tonight to share stories of lives changed at Bent Tree Bible Fellowship in Carrollton, Texas.
The evening was filled with reminiscing on the beginning of I Am Second, which launched with a billboard campaign in the Dallas-Fort Worth marketplace on Dec. 2, 2008, and what has now become an international movement, garnering more than 14 million page views and 3.3 million visits from 214 countries/regions. In addition to praise and worship from Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Matthew West, numerous “seconds” featured on the website filled the program, sharing testimonies and feedback regarding their I Am Second experience.
“I sacrificed a lot when I left Korn,” said Brian “Head” Welch, former band member of Korn. “What I’m doing now doesn’t pay much, but to see people’s lives changed, that’s my paycheck. It’s what I live for.”
