Chip Kirk

Chip Kirk uses ventriloquism to entertain and change people's perspective on Mission and Evangelism. His ministry focuses on spiritual renewal that subsequently leads to missions.

"I believe," he says, "that the greatest motivation for evangelism and world missions is for Christians to possess and embody a passionate, authentic, and holy love for Jesus Christ. A Christian embracing that intimacy and reality in Christ will not have to be pushed, prodded, or manipulated into sharing his or her faith."

The Bill Drake Band

Musician, preacher, worship leader, author...yet above all, Bill Drake is committed to being a servant. "I don't see myself as a musician with a message," says Bill. "Rather I am a preacher who happens to use music."

Bill Drake and his team present multi-media concerts with a unique focus. The concerts are not simply about music, but about God and experiencing the reality of God in your life. The latest release is the "Crowns Experience" which will take you on a journey to find what you are willing to give your life for.
