Francis Chan is a man who knows first-hand that a life called by Jesus will be a life transformed, and he seeks to live out that transformation in every aspect of his life—through his ministry, his family, his community, his finances and his publishing. Chan’s passion is to see the next generation of American Christians display a much deeper and more radical love for Jesus – in words and in deeds.
Francis is the author of New York Times bestseller Crazy Love, as well as Forgotten God- both of which were immediate bestsellers. He and his wife Lisa currently live in Northern California with their five children.
Scott Drew, head coach of the Baylor University men’s basketball team, took a program that was marked by scandal and rebuilt it to national prominence. Since 2003, the Baylor Bears have gone to four NCAA tournaments under Drew’s leadership and he has sent five players to the NBA. More importantly than his success as a coach, he is known for intentionally sharing his faith and investing in his players’ lives on and off the court. Drew and his wife Kelly are the parents of one daughter, Mackenzie, and two sons, Peyton and Brody.
David Eubank, a former Special Forces and Ranger officer, is now a missionary and the founder and leader of the Free Burma Rangers (FBR), a humanitarian service movement for oppressed ethnic minorities in the Burma war zones. David spends most of his days traveling on foot throughout the war-torn jungles of Burma with his family, spreading help, hope and love to the Karen civilians who are fleeing the Burma army. As a man who walks confidently in the boldness of Christ and grateful for God’s mercy and grace, he knows that a life of obedience to Jesus is one of great risk and great reward.
He, his wife Karen and three children; Sahale, Suu and Peter, consider Thailand to be their home-base, though “home” is really in the jungle with the people of Burma whom they have all come to love.

Robert also invests in numerous churches nationally and travels internationally speaking and helping plant churches.
He and Stefanie have one daughter and three sons and thus spend tons of time coaching sports, and going to all kinds of kids activities.
