BISHOP NOEL JONES
For nearly 40 years, Bishop Noel Jones has challenged us through his messages. A theologian and scholar who has been labeled "eclectic, a maverick, and a preacher's preacher," he is known for thinking outside the box and forcing us to think beyond traditional views of God and spirituality. Never being one to shy away from controversy, his propensity to be transparent has often forced us to confront the trepidations and apprehensions of our own lives. He pastors The City of Refuge megachurch in Los Angeles with a membership of 20,000, and has integrated programs that speak to the needs of people in all walks of life. Bishop Jones can currently be seen on The Word Channel on Sunday evenings.
DR. HAK JA HAN MOON
Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon is affectionately known as the "Mother of Peace." For the past three years, she has been on a worldwide "Peace Starts With Me" speaking tour, calling every individual to become a co-creator of a lasting peaceful world, starting with themselves. The heart and soul of Dr. Moon and her late husband, Rev. Sun Myung Moon's, lifelong ministry, spanning more than 50 years, is the ideal of the family as the cornerstone of world peace.
