Wake Weekend 2023 Speaker

Marquise Cox

Marquise's sole purpose in leading and speaking to people across the country is to inspire them into a deeper relationship with Jesus. He passionately believes Jesus loves us right where we are but loves us too much to let us stay where we are.

When Marquise isn't on the road speaking, he's doing life with his wife, Krystal, and sons, Denver & Dallas or hanging with students.
