Jeannie Marie

Author of “Across the Street & Around the World”
Sunday, March 31
9:30am | Worship Center

Jeannie Marie is the author of Across the Street and Around the World: Following Jesus to the Nations in Your Neighborhood...and Beyond. Jeannie loves to speak on how to create relational bridges with people from other cultures and faiths, and help people and churches find their global role, and missional strategy.

Jeannie grew up as an expat, third-culture kid, in the Philippines until she came to the United States for a degree in Communications. Jeannie and her husband and four children live in the suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona. She also knows what it's like to find your global role starting right where you live, as she worked across the street from international students, refugees, community development non-profits, and at a church mobilizing others to go to the nations. She hopes to inspire others to live an extraordinary life following Jesus into other cultures with courage, compassion and confidence.


Bill Campbell

Greater European Mission - France
Sunday, March 31
9:30am | Worship Center

Bill, his wife, Kristie and their five children have lived in Paris since 2010.The Lord has broken their hearts for the 13 million people of the Ile-de-France. Hopeless atheism, empty secularism, and deeply-entrenched occultism oppress and depress the people all around them. The darkness, the spiritual resistance, and the oppression are palpable there. And yet, in the midst of it all, Jesus is building His Church. A new church is started every 10 days in France. Increased unity pervades denominations and churches. Young people are coming to Christ; many of them hearing the true gospel for the first time and responding.

The Campbell’s focus with GEM is as the City Reach Leaders for Paris, leading in evangelism, discipleship multiplication, and simple-church planting.

Patricia Sawo
Kenya – Mission Stream
Sunday, April 7
9:30am | Worship Center

Patricia “Mama Sweetie” Sawo is the author I'm Not Dying and founder of the Discover to Recover Centre - an orphanage and school for children with HIV/AIDS in Kitale, Kenya. In addition to maintaining the physical and educational needs of the 53 children under her care, Patricia provides love and hope, rooted in Biblical fundamentals. She is the recipient of the 2011 CNN Hero Award.

In 2002, Patricia was ordained as a minister, and she went on to help start ANERELA+, a network of African religious leaders living with or affected by HIV or AIDS. She began preaching about the issue regularly from the pulpit, believing that faith leaders have a responsibility to speak out. In 2005, she and her husband established the Discover to Recover Centre. It was originally intended as a place for adults to receive care. But as patients died, leaving their sons and daughters behind, it evolved into a home for children.
