For over 15 years, Missionaries Austin & Jennifer Jones have seen thousands of lives transformed by the resurrection power of Jesus Christ. From the metropolitan areas of America to the remote parts of Alaska, they have witnessed multitudes of men, women, and children encounter the living God. They actively live and pursue the lost in remote Alaska as they proclaim Jesus Christ as Savior, Healer, Baptizer, and soon coming King. As a result of their ministry, many lives have turned to Jesus, pastors and leaders have been established, and churches have been revitalized.

Presently, the Joneses serve as US Missionaries with the Assemblies of God. They reside in the Bering Straits Region of Alaska with their two sons Aiden and Wyatt. Austin and Jennifer uphold a strong missional focus in Western Alaska by maintaining a relational and spiritual connection with the churches and leaders that have been touched by their ministry. They possess a deep conviction to preach the full Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth; while equipping, training, and establishing the next generation of leaders. For many years to come, the Joneses will remain committed to their God-given vision of “Reaching the 1 – Equipping the 99.” 

Joel Vaughn has a sound all his own. Daring to defy a musical characterization with his first label signed EP “Kinetic” in 2016, He pushed his musical boundaries with a sound He always wanted to create but had never tried. It was a success and that EP resulted in a Billboard top 20 hit with his first radio single “Wide Awake”.

In 2017 Joel toured the U.S. on the heels of the success of “Kinetic” and with that momentum He released his second EP “Surrender”. That release drew national attention with his single “As You Are” and also charted as a Billboard top 20 hit. The "Surrender" EP was later nominated for “EP of The YEAR” in the We Love Christian Music Awards.

Earlier last year Joel was featured in the film “God’s Not Dead: A Light In Darkness” while performing his song “Alive in Us” which also debuted on the Official Movie Soundtrack. Joel has returned with a new single “Pray It Up”, which is already running up the Billboard charts. It’s a fun pop anthem that is a simple call to prayer that reminds us of the power that comes with consistent communication with God.

Joel's new album "Control" is slated to release this fall and features the current hit "Pray It Up" as well as many other future favorites.

Over 50 years ago, a young evangelist had a vision for a family ministry just like this. He has since traveled the United States and 9 countries around the world, produced and starred in a children's television series fulfilling that vision that is still relevant today. Through video learning tools ventriloquism and Gospel illusions, plus much, much more, the salvational message always is the focus which surrounds the family units as the parents learn how they can minister, and pray with their children at home and more parenting ideas to grow families in the word and love of Jesus.

D Bishop is an independent hip-hop artist from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. At a young age, he was influenced by Hip-Hop culture both good and bad. Little did he know, God hadgiven him a calling on his life and had given him a gift to bring forth. The Word through his music. D.Bishop had many different names that he went by, most notably S.O.S. (Son of Sin). As you can see he recognized his disobedience, but just didn't know the way out. He believed in God, but didn't have a true relationship with Him. Through his early years, he struggled with acceptance and insecurity. He felt emptiness within and looked to many different things in the world to satisfy it. Eventually friends became enemies and relationships were lacking the most important element, LOVE. In the year 2000, July 28th to be exact, one of the greatest moments of his life happened. That day, his daughter Mikaela was born. Seeing that made him look at things in a different perspective, although still wasn't taking heed to the Lord's call. Shortly after, Dan decided to attend Church. At that point, he relized the missing link inside him. A poetry night took place which was the 1st time he submitted his music to Christ, and He's been in control ever since. There were some obstacles along the way, but they only made him stronger and helped him to grow into the man he is today. Now his purpose for music is to present the Gospel, making Christ known,and directing people to salvation through Him.
