Connie Witter, founder of Because of Jesus Ministries is a speaker, teacher, and the author of numerous Bible studies and books that focus on Jesus and His finished work. After 20 years of struggling to "measure up" Connie cried out for the Truth that would set her free from the frustration and disappointment of trying to qualify herself for God's blessings. This began her journey out of darkness into the marvelous light of Jesus and His unconditional love and grace. Whether ministering in a church, conference, prison or at her weekly Bible study, Connie's passion is for everyone's heart to be awakened to their true identity as a blessed & loved child of God! Connie’s TV program, “Because of Jesus with Connie Witter,” airs nationally every Wednesday morning at 8:30 AM on direct TV 363, Cox Channel 23 in Tulsa, OK, KUGB TV 28.1 in Houston, TX, and worldwide on her ministry website: BecauseofJesus.com.

Sandra McCollom is the co-founder, with her husband Steve, of Freedom Living Ministries. She’s a speaker and author of I Tried Until I Almost Died – From Anxiety & Frustration to Rest & Relaxation. For the first 34 years of her life, as a Christian, she lived in almost constant stress. Running on her “treadmill of accomplishment” and desperately trying to live the Christian life by her own efforts left her feeling anxious, frustrated and exhausted. At the end of 2011 Sandra told God she just couldn’t live the Christian life any longer and admitted she needed serious help. God responded by giving her a deep revelation of His love for her. It’s been 6 years and Sandra’s life is totally transformed! One of her favorite ways to help others learn how to live the grace life is through her blog at SandraMccollom.com
Christy Rose is a professed recovering Pharisee! From a young child, she always behaved in ways that would bring her acceptance and approval. After graduating from Rhema Bible Training Center, Christy began living her dream of being a stay-at-home wife and mother and still had time to teach Sunday school and Bible study and be a youth and children's pastor with her husband Aaron. Christy became a woman of grace when God's unconditional love and grace brought her to the place of exchanging her self-righteousness for Jesus' righteousness! As a mother of six she has learned to depend on His love and grace and continues to share the true Good News in Sunday School classes, Bible Studies, and conferences. Her humor, life experiences, and love of God's Word uniquely equip her as a dynamic and anointed minister of the Gospel of Grace.
