This year’s conference guest speakers:Jerome Bell Photo

Jerome Bell – Jerome Bell is the pastor of North Christian Church in Markleville, Indiana. He’s has a Masters in Ministry from Mt. Vernon Nazarene University and has also attended Hobe Sound Bible College. Originally from Bremen, Ohio, he’s a husband and father of two. He is a staunch believer in lives that reflect what they believe as examples to family and friends.

“No matter how bold the public statement may be, it’s more important that we live what we say especially in private. When those who are the closest to you know what the real truth is. Does your life reflect what you say you believe? It’s more than just quoting Bible verses. It’s about letting the Bible impact our family so that our lives do not contradict God’s word. Our youth and our children today need someone to role model the Truth.”

 a.k.a. iNTELLECT – David Bunts is the music minister and producer behind several projects. Going by the moniker iNTELLECT, his latest project is called The Revolution, the main themes which focus on a revolution in the culture and in hip hop.

“It is very evident that America is in trouble,” he observes. “From racial tension and strife to issues within the American home (divorce, children without fathers, etc.) and the promotion of illicit sex, America is truly beginning to reap what it has sowed.  It is time for this country to get back to its Christian roots and repent of its sin.”

David WashingtonDavid Washington – David Washington is the pastor at Berean Home Fellowship. He’s been pastor for the past five years and served in various capacities in other local bodies before as a worship leader and small group teacher. It was in the latter capacity that he saw the church going and was called to form a home church which is the first of a network of churches he is praying would spring up in the city of Toledo. He is the author of Stop Bringing Them to Church-Who the Church Is, Isn’t and Why It Should Stay That Way.

“One of the main problems within the church is that we don’t know what the church is. There’s a loss and confusion of identity. This is also translated into our culture at the most basic level: what it means to be men and women.”

He is also the bible teacher on the BHF podcast series Learn More About God.
