Emcee Brian Fleming
Brian Fleming served with the US Army's 10th Mountain Division as a Team Leader in an Infantry Platoon while fighting the war in Afghanistan. While deployed, his vehicle was blown up twice and he was severely injured when a suicide bomber exploded 3-feet away from him in Kandahar. A Purple Heart recipient, he has written numerous books on overcoming trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress and his mission now is to help educate and equip others so they, too, can stand firm when everything around them is blowing up.
Key Note Speaker Terry Burgess

It was Bryan's third tour. Terry has spent the last year touring the United States with The Hornet's Nest, a feature film that includes actual footage of Bryan and his final tour of duty.
Painting Performance by Lance Brown
Lance Brown is the man behind Painted Christ. Painted Christ is live performance art speed painted by Christian artist Lance Brown. Large-scale Jesus speed paintings on canvas are performed in about 5 minutes right in front of your eyes. Each painting tells a story of Jesus that will bless your heart and strengthen your faith. "My main objective is to minister to people where ever God allows me to go. Whenever...where ever God wants to use me."
Lance will be preforming one of his patriotic pieces and it is not to be missed. The painting will then be auctioned off that night!
