Glenn’s first love in ministry is disciple-making – the simple, biblical model that Jesus used to make disciples who make disciples. He has trained churches, pastors and leaders through the United States and around the world in Jesus’ disciple-making model. Glenn currently serves as Executive Pastor at Crossroads Church in Newnan, GA. Glenn and his wife Dawn have been married for 19 years and have four children.
BIO: Mark is a CPA, who spent the first 8 years of his career in public accounting with Price Waterhouse, and held two officer positions in a 26 year career with RadioShack Corporation, the latest as Vice President – Treasurer.

BIO: Dr. Moody wears lots of ministry hats but the one he is most proud of and the one he often says he will give up last is as a personal disciple maker. Chris currently serves as the lead pastor of Beaumont’s First Baptist Church and as an Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology for Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, VA. Dr. Moody continues to guide FBC Beaumont, an historic church founded in 1872, through a major shift in focus from a traditional SBC model of ministry to a ‘Making-DiscipleMakers’ model of ministry. Numerous onlookers throughout this ‘discipleshift’ have given the same refrain: “If First Beaumont can do it, any church can do it.”
