The Leaders

Greg Hamm

He believes this is possible through an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and challenges youth to pursue Jesus passionately. Greg loves Jesus, his wife Whitney and three kids, Aaron, Alexa and Riley. A self proclaimed foodie that cannot say no to coffee dates.

Conrad Buckley

Conrad is passionate about sharing God’s love to everyone, even if they cannot see the love themselves.  Conrad has a desire to teach the next generation of this unwavering love.  He is a good listener and a deep thinker.  Conrad is married with two beautiful children, Inara and Toby.  Conrad loves all things STAR WARS and Apple. His hope and prayer is also to see the next generation fall so in love with Jesus that they don’t need “fixing” later.

Chantel has a passion for the prophetic and loves seeing God change and transform lives with His love. She is married to Steve and they enjoy camping, travelling, hiking and biking with their faithful dog, Lily.
