Lisa M. Dieker
Special Ministry License in Christian Education and Family Ministries
Lisa first encountered the Lord in high school. Through a community of people the Lord spoke into her life about His love, mercy, and faithfulness. It wasn't until she was in college, however, that she chose to follow Jesus. Since then, God has continued to grow a passion for youth and children, especially those in urban areas. As a teacher at San Francisco City Impact, Lisa is able to share the love of Jesus with students on a daily basis. As a leader at San Francisco Worship Center, she invests in the lives of young people each week. Lisa lives in San Francisco, CA.
Jared came to faith in Christ as an 8th grader. Since then, he has grown in his knowledge and understanding of who Jesus is and the calling he has been given. In college, God led him to serve with Young Life. Working with high schoolers, Jared developed a passion for sharing Jesus. It wasn't until recently, however, that Jared felt God calling him to a new type of ministry, military chaplaincy with the US Army. He is now pursuing this calling as he begins to complete his MDiv. Jared and his wife, Lily, have two children and live in Newport News, VA.
Joseph C. Miller
Special Ministry License in Leadership and Administration
Joe first came to know Jesus while in 4th grade. With the support of his parents, Joe began to grow in his faith as he realized what it meant to have a relationship with Jesus. After being a key volunteer at Hill City Church, Joe said yes once again and accepted the role of Executive Pastor there. On top of those responsibilities, he has a passion to see healthy marriages that honor Christ in every aspect. Joe and his wife, Laura, have three kids and live in Richmond, VA.
Jude L. Charles
Jesus got a hold of Jude at the age of 10 years old. Growing up in Haiti, he learned from his father, who planted a church in the town of Jacmel. As he grew in his faith, God opened doors for Jude to share the hope that he had found in Jesus. In answering the call of God on his life, Jude moved to Nyack, NY where he graduate from Nyack College, and is currently completing his MDiv. at Alliance Theological Seminary. Jude and his wife, Joanne, live in Nyack, NY.

Ray often says that each year is better than the last, but the best is yet to come. He's developed this perspective after decades of following Jesus. Through a divinely appointed meeting when he was 18, Ray came to accept Jesus as his personal savior. Since that moment, God has grown in him a passion to share Jesus with others. These days, Ray seeks to bring Jesus to those at the MN Veterans' Home and individuals he serves as a part of the ministry of Life Rebuilders. Ray and his wife, Nancy, live in Bloomington, MN
