“If just one more person finds eternal life in Jesus Christ… it is all worth it. You can help me spread this message today!”
- Nick Vujicic

Imagine getting through your busy day without hands or legs. Picture your life without the ability to walk, care for your basic needs, or even embrace those you love. Meet Nicholas Vujicic (pronounced VOO-yee-cheech). Without any medical explanation or warning, Nick was born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, without arms and legs. Three sonograms failed to reveal complications. And yet, the Vujicic family was destined to cope with both the challenge and blessing of raising a son who refused to allow his physical condition to limit his lifestyle.

The early days were difficult. Throughout his childhood, Nick not only dealt with the typical challenges of school and adolescence, but he also struggled with depression and loneliness. Nick constantly wondered why he was different than all the other kids. He questioned the purpose of life, or if he even had a purpose.

According to Nick, the victory over his struggles, as well as his strength and passion for life today, can be credited to his faith in God. His family, friends and the many people he has encountered along the journey have inspired him to carry on, as well.

Since his first speaking engagement at age 19, Nick has traveled around the world, sharing his story with millions, sometimes in stadiums filled to capacity, speaking to a range of diverse groups such as students, teachers, young people, business professionals and church congregations of all sizes. Today this dynamic young evangelist has accomplished more than most people achieve in a lifetime. He’s an author, musician, actor, and his hobbies include fishing, painting and swimming. In 2007, Nick made the long journey from Australia to southern California where he is the president of the international non-profit ministry, Life Without Limbs, which was established in 2005.

Nick says, “If God can use a man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet, then He will certainly use any willing heart!” Nick’s latest foray into radio will expand his platform for inviting men and women all around the world to embrace the liberating hope and message of Jesus Christ.

Daniel Kolenda

Daniel Kolenda is a modern missionary evangelist who has led more than 21-million people to Christ face-to face through massive open-air evangelistic campaigns in some of the most dangerous, difficult and remote locations on earth. As the successor to world renowned Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, Daniel is the president and CEO of Christ for All Nations; a ministry which has conducted some of the largest evangelistic events in history, has published over 190 million books in 104 languages and has offices in 10 nations around the world. He also hosts an internationally syndicated television program.

Daniel is a gifted, fifth-generation preacher whose ministry is marked by a powerful evangelistic anointing and incredible miracles after the model of Jesus; preaching, teaching and healing. The blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear — he has even seen the dead raised — but most importantly, the poor have the gospel preached to them. It is this single minded Gospel emphasis that makes the ministry of Daniel Kolenda and Christ for all Nations so unique.

Dr. Heidi Baker

Heidi’s greatest passion is to live in the manifest presence of God and to carry His glory, presence, and love to a lost and dying world. She longs to see others laying their lives down for the sake of the Gospel and coming home to the Father’s love. Rolland and Heidi Baker founded Iris Ministry, now Iris Global, in 1980. In 1995 they were called to the poorest country in the world at the time, Mozambique, and faced an extreme test of the Gospel.. They began by pouring out their lives among abandoned street children. As the Holy Spirit moved miraculously in many ways, a revival movement spread to adults, pastors, churches, and then throughout the bush, all across Mozambique's ten provinces. Heidi is now "Mama Aida" to thousands of children, and oversees a broad holistic ministry that includes Bible schools, medical clinics, church-based orphan care, well drilling, primary schools, evangelistic industries, cottage farms, widow’s programs, and healing outreaches in remote villages that includes a network of hundreds of churches. She earned her BA, MA degrees from S.C.C., Vanguard University, and her PhD from Kings College, University of London. She is calling for a passionate tribe of believers who will pour out their lives for Love's sake and bring all children of all ages home to the Father's embrace!

Todd White

Todd White was a drug addict and atheist for 22 years when in 2004 God radically set him free. Redemption and righteousness are the foundation and the keys to the new creation reality that we are to live in and from. God has simply opened Todd’s eyes to this truth and that Holy Spirit wants to flow through every believer everywhere we go, at work, school, grocery stores, malls, gas stations, everywhere. Todd’s true joy is being able to reproduce in people the simplicity of this reality, in a 24/7 kingdom lifestyle! This is for every believer! No one is excluded! His heart is activating people into the simplicity of who they really are and destroying lies that hold people back from being who God created them to be.

"With all my heart guys I urge you to come. This nation is one of the most atheist in the world, we need to give them Jesus now

We had 13 people at our first service. The congregation grew rapidly and we moved buildings, bought land and built a school. We began planting churches around Sydney, then Australia, then various parts of the world; we've now grown to close to 500 congregations in our movement.

We’ve started C3 College, a television program, Your Best Life, and Oxford Falls Grammar School, all on around 25 acres at Oxford Falls, Sydney. 

I’ve always been passionate about the arts playing a major role in church to make her contemporary and relevant to our current world. The C3 College Creative Arts stream has developed and graduated thousands of musicians, worship leaders, song writers, graphic artists, dancers, actors and film makers.

I myself also paint and exhibit in various venues and cities. I love to write, so I’ve mixed these two elements together in books like 'Inspired to Pray', 'But God' and '24 Hours That Saved The World – The Gospel of John in Art'. My other books include 'Faith', 'Peace', 'Moving in the Spirit', 'Leadership Excellence', 'You the Leader', along with my latest book, 'Leadership 101'. 

I love the local church. I believe it's the hope for the world.
