- Susan Corsaro-Johnson
Susan Corsaro-Johnson is passionate about helping others discover and live God’s destiny for their lives and bring unity, life and hope to all denominations.
She was raised in a Christian home and although she always had a heart to seek God, she was unsatisfied by what her church had to offer. It wasn’t until she was in her late 20s that someone gave her Corrie Ten Boom’s book, “The Hiding Place.” It was the first time she’d ever heard of having a “personal relationship” with the living Lord which started her on her quest in earnest. It was several more years before she found Jesus, but when she did, she knew He was what she’d been looking for all her life.

- Deidre Campbell-Jones
Deidre Campbell-Jones' ministry of writing, teaching and speaking about the truths of God's word began shortly after she was saved in 1985 at the age of 23. Her immediate and voracious study led her Pastor to enter her into a local Christian oratorical contest. After a series of short messages she won the competition and decided then and there that she wanted to be an evangelist. The looks of improbability and disbelief quietly led her to believe that perhaps a simple declaration was not the correct process and she quickly laid those thoughts to rest. However, now at the age of 42 Deidre finally realizes that her declaration almost 20 years ago was more of a personal prophecy than of any specific desire.
