Michael Anthony

Founder of Courage Matters, LLC

Michael Anthony (born Michael Anthony Paolicelli) is an American author, inspirational speaker, podcaster, and founder and CEO of Courage Matters, LLC. He uses his first and middle names for simplicity. His first book, A Call for Courage: Living with Power, Truth, and Love In An Age of Intolerance and Fear (Thomas Nelson Publishers) was released in 2018 where he uses the terms “courageous humility,” “humble courage,” and the “Nighttime Bible Reading Society,” which he coined and reflect key aspects of his worldview. He is also the creator of the Courageous Life Planning System, to be released in October 15, 2019. He is a critic of what he believes to be conservative evangelical arrogance that has driven many people away from Christ rather than toward Him. Himself a conservative evangelical Christian, Anthony believes that the bulk of American church is in need of a “second reformation” where truth and love are embraced and delivered equally and unapologetically.

Jeff Kemp

Founder of Jeff Kemp Team

Jeff is a quarterback for strengthening teams. An NFL quarterback from 1981 to 1992, he and his father Jack Kemp (the former Vice-Presidential candidate and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development), were the first of only six sets of father/son NFL quarterbacks.

After his 11-year career in the NFL, Jeff founded and led the Seattle-based national non-profit Stronger Families, dedicated to helping families thrive. After 18 years as a CEO, Jeff and his wife Stacy transitioned to serve Family Life as Vice President and Catalyst from 2012 to 2017, helping leaders and influencers strengthen families. FamilyLife is an international ministry leader in marriage conferences and resources to build, heal and enrich marriages and families.

As he speaks and coaches throughout the United States, Jeff combines the best from professional team sports with the best of building strong relationships, team alignment and trust to strengthen the business. He’s persevered through the highs and lows of pro football, and led organizations to strengthen relationships and fuel collaboration. Jeff’s approach is both direct and winsome, and he inspires courage in his clients and audiences, vitalizing leaders, teams and individuals.

Jeff and his wife, Stacy, have been married 35 years and mentor young couples. They have four married sons and love tennis, skiing, and spending time with family.

Stephen Ashton

Director Trail Life USA

Seminar Title: Essential Tools to Equip Boys for Godly Manhood

Seminar Description: In a digital 21st century world boys are increasingly confused about the definition of manhood. Instead of real-world challenge, boys conquer virtual worlds and earn trophies for participation. Discussions about “toxic masculinity,” a blurring of gender lines, fewer and fewer fathers in the home, and the watering down or extinction of programs that train and equip boys to become men have left too many boys frustrated, fearful, and floundering. Learn time-tested strategies to connect with young men, build relationships, and equip them to become leaders of character who thrive as husbands, fathers, and citizens.

Focus – Mentoring Young Men

 

Philip DelRe

Founder/President of Voice in the Wilderness Ministries

Seminar Title: The Fear of Man vs. The Fear of God

Seminar Description: Giving God His rightful place is key to living the abundant life Jesus speaks of.

Focus – Overcoming the world

David Winters

Director of Taking God to Work

Seminar Title: Taking God to Work

Seminar Description: God’s blueprint for success at work goes way beyond evangelism. By learning and following His principles, men can impact every customer, coworker and boss for Christ. This session provides strategies for finding a job you can love, tapping divine motivation to excel and finding new challenges when it’s time to move on.

Focus: Christian Living

Timothy Board

Pastor & Director of Things to Come Mission

Seminar Title: Why Missions is Urgent NOT Optional for Manhood

Seminar Description: How would the priorities of your lifestyle change, if your family was the only evangelical Christian witness in your neighborhood, city, state, or country? The exclusive truths claims of Christ and the power of His finished work at Calvary beckon the hearts of men to live on mission “in Christ” to the praise of His glory. Drawing upon extensive pastoral experience in America and a 27 day adventure to six countries of Southeast Asia in November, this seminar will equip men for cultural engagement with seven truths from the book of Romans about people who have never heard of Jesus Christ.

Focus: Cultural Engagement

Michael Manning

Director of Destiny Rescue

Seminar Title: Be a Leader to be a Protector and Provider

Seminar Description: Paul makes it clear in Ephesians that marriage is a picture of the relationship between Christ and the church. An attack on marriage is also an attack on the relationship between Christ and the church. Sex trafficking, pornography and the oversexualization of our society are an assault on both our marriages and our church. We are allowing Satan’s assault on both humanity and the church when we allow the abuse of girls and women to exist. We as men need to be strong leaders in the fight against sex trafficking and not allow it to continue to be an issue that is more important to women than to us.

Focus: Leadership, fighting sex trafficking
