Darryl Strawberry November 12, 2018
One of the leading sluggers of his era, Darryl Strawberry was an 8-time All Star outfielder and earned World Series rings with the New York Mets (1986) and the New York Yankees (1996, ’98 and ’99). In a major league career that spanned 17 seasons, Strawberry had reached the pinnacle of the baseball world but his personal world was crumbling. Addictions, failed marriages, and a struggle with depression brought him to the brink. His dramatic testimony of how Christ changed his life is recorded in his autobiography Straw: Finding My Way (2009). Now an ordained pastor, he and his wife Tracy (whom he met while in drug rehab) have co-authored The Imperfect Marriage: Help for Those Who Think It’s Over.
Alex Kendrick February 4, 2019
Alex Kendrick is a pastor, author and screenwriter, film director and actor—and also a husband and the father of six children. Concerned that movies had become more influential in modern society than churches, he and his brother Stephen formed a film production company based out of their church in Albany, Georgia. Since its founding in 2002, Sherwood Pictures has brought to 21st century America a number of remarkable and powerful faith-based films, including: Facing the Giants, Fireproof, Courageous, War Room and, most recently, Like Arrows. Alex is a powerful speaker and is passionate about presenting the Christian life in its practical and relevant expressions.
Stephen Baldwin March 19, 2019
The youngest brother of the famed acting clan, Stephen Baldwin’s varied career has included writing, producing, and directing as well as acting in television shows and feature films, including Born on the Fourth of July and The Usual Suspects. His 2006 autobiography, The Unusual Suspect, describes his life in the secular Hollywood lifestyle and his conversion to Christ, which was triggered by the impact of September 11, 2001. Stephen has founded ministries to work with teens and active military personnel, and is a regular guest on television and radio talk shows. He and his wife live in New York and have two daughters.
Lou Holtz April 9, 2019
A legendary football coach and television commentator, Lou Holtz brings to his work an intuitive feel for the game, an outgoing personality and a great sense of humor. His career included coaching stints at William & Mary, North Carolina State, Arkansas, Minnesota, Notre Dame (where he won a consensus national championship in 1988), and South Carolina, as well as a single season as head coach of the New York Jets. He is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame, and author of the motivational books Wins, Losses and Lessons and Winning Every Day: The Game Plan for Success. He speaks regularly on principles of leadership and faith. He and his wife of 57 years live in Orlando, and have four children.
