Becket Cook

Becket Cook

A recent graduate of Talbot School of Theology, author of A Change of Affection: A Gay Man’s Incredible Story of Redemption, and career set designer, Becket spends much of his time in ministry helping believers and non-believers understand the issue of homosexuality biblically, theologically, culturally, and personally. His goal is to challenge the current cultural narrative about sexuality in general and homosexuality in particular by demonstrating that homosexuality is still a sin and following Christ is infinitely more satisfying and joyous.

Tony Beam

Dr. Tony Beam

Tony serves as Director of Engagement for North Greenville University. He is a professor and host of the radio talk show “Christian Worldview with Tony and Hannah” on His Radio Talk.

Wil Owens

Wil Owens

Wil serves as pastor of Grassy Pond Baptist Church and founder of Wil Owens Ministries. His desire is to encourage and equip believers around the world in the Word of God. Primarily this begins in the local church where Wil serves and then to the ends of the earth through the opportunities the Lord provides. Having a conference to address the issues of our day has been a long-time vision for Wil. His prayer is that believers will be equipped to think through the issues of our day through the lens of Scripture and non-believers will come to know that the gospel is our hope and promise for this life and life everlasting.
