Bill Adams – Chattanooga, TN
Bill Adams was raised in the church, Baptist and Methodist, and has never in his life not known of or considered God in his life. In 1988 upon graduation from Belmont University’s Masters in Business program the Lord called Bill to follow Him. That began a 30 year journey of following Jesus Christ and growing in the grace and knowledge of Him.
In 1995 the Lord called Bill to begin to go into the highways and hedges to preach the Word and in 2000 Bill became a full-time evangelist.
In the early years Bill preached at seemingly every concert, sporting event, parade and festival in Atlanta and simultaneously the Lord led him to travel to major sporting events like the Super Bowl, Final Four and Olympics to preach.
In 2007 Sports Fan Outreach [SFOI] was born as an effort to bring more Saints with him to preach at these sporting events and now through the SFOI George Whitefield program Bill is seeking men who believed they are called into full-time evangelism to join him to saturate the Western World with the Gospel.
Over the years millions of souls throughout the Western World have heard the Word through Bill’s preaching and the great delight of his life is knowing and preaching Jesus Christ crucified.
Bill is a confessing evangelical Anglican based on the 1662 Book of Common Prayer of the Church of England, he is a commissioned evangelist of the Diocese of the Central States of the Reformed Episcopal Church which is part of the Anglican Church of North America and is presently enrolled in the Masters of Theology program at Union School of Theology headquartered in Oxford, England.

Jason Bradshaw – Riverview, MN
Hi I’m Jason Bradshaw. I’m 34 years old. I’m married to a blessing from the Lord named Kelly. We have been married for almost 5 years. We don’t have any children but we have a dog that we treat like a son lol. For roughly 20 years I believed I was a Christian, but after practicing a lifestyle of deliberate sin against God, the Lord granted me the gift of repentance and faith! My life has never been the same. I finally realized that the sinner’s prayer does not save. King Jesus saves! I’m so blessed and forever grateful to be adopted as one of God’s children. I’m a recruiter by trade, but the Lord has ignited a strong desire in me for evangelism. It still amazes me to this day that the Lord would give me so much joy in sharing the Gospel! I’m so blessed to be able to share this passion with my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ! Praise Jesus!
Dan Davis – Seymour, WI
Saved by the hand of God shortly after my wife was saved some 21 yrs ago now. We have been married for 24 years and have had one daughter who’s recently married to a godly young man. I’ve worked for Wisconsin in the highway department for about 20 years and now serve in the area of roadway maintenance. I currently serve in our new local home fellowship “Word from the Barn” as the Life Events Deacon for the last 3yrs. I’ve been sharing my faith through testimony and tracts for about 20 years but only 3 years of experience in open air preaching. I’m looking forward to laboring alongside my fellow brothers and sisters in the faith in a much larger venue SBO 16 and declaring the Glorious Gospel of our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Dave Johnson – Chesterfield , MI
My name is Dave Johnson and I am 51. My Blessed life is the result of a Sovereign Father who used the means of Godly parents, grandparents, faithful flannel graph teaching sunday school teachers to save me by the blood of Jesus Christ as a child. This same God choose to keep me from wasting my teenage years by the means of faithful youth pastors, good Church friends, preaching pastors, and Christian mentors in a traditional Baptist church. Who would have thought that was possible?…
I did not want to fall head over heels for Nancy in 1990. I avoided her, would not look at her, would drive thoughts of her out of my head, but I knew God had chosen her for my wife before we even met. We have been blessed with 27 years of marriage and 4 children, spanning 14 years oldest to youngest, and have a wonderful son-in-law and granddaughter.
My life has consisted of spending extensive time with family, attending and serving in church, working in IT and property management, and an overflow of blessings from my God. I think I have only had a couple significant trials in life but each time I was driven to God’s word as my only source of comfort. I love encouraging others, teaching God’s word, sharing my faith, and proclaiming and defending the only reality, that of the Christian worldview.

Nicholas Mata – Belleville,MI
My name is Nicholas Mata. I’m 31 years old, and I became a born again Christian in June 2012. I currently work for a distribution warehouse, but my real passion is evangelism and ministry. God has blessed me with a burden for the lost sheep of His fold, and I am blessed to be able to participate in evangelism on many different levels. I also have a passion to read, study, and lead studies, of God’s Word with others. Everyday I am learning, and enjoying, the process of becoming less, so that my Savior may become greater through me.
Heath Pucel – Green Bay, WI
My name is Heath Pucel. I’ve been married 15 years a wonderful wife who keeps me humble. I live in Green Bay Wisconsin, and have a passion for teaching and training the Word. The Lord graciously granted me repentance unto salvation and from my false conversion in 2004 when I was praying in my naivety for how to share my faith Biblically. I attended previous witnessing training but it was more lifestyle evangelism; but in 2004, not only did he show me how, He also brought me to repentance in faith through the ministry of Living Waters. Since then, I’ve had a desire and burden to share the Gospel in Green Bay, around the country and abroad. My past experience with evangelism has opened up opportunities for me to attend outings such as: 2008 Ambassadors Academy #3, 6 Super Bowl Outreaches, 5 Kentucky Derby Outreaches, OAC SET 2012 and 2013. The Sweet Auburn Festival, ministry at ASU, UW Stevens Point and Madison campuses. Numerous local events such as Walleye weekend, Wisconsin State Fair, Jehovah’s Witness conventions, and Green Bay Packer Games. God has given me the privilege to meet up with faithful saints locally and across the country to labor and minister His word in the open air as well as lead outreach teams with all praise, glory and honor to His name.
Ivan Town – Allen Park, MI
My name is Ivan and I live in Michigan near Detroit. I was born in a much more rural section of the state eventually got my BS in computer science. But don’t think I’m a math pro – I had to make up for serious slacking by summer classes, a 5th year and tons of grace. (that I was unaware of at the time)
I got married and we moved to Maine for her med school adventure. It’s a beautiful place. Be sure to stop through there if you can. In Maine I was hired by my current employer. I mostly do website programming. They even let me work from home now that I’ve had to move away! It’s been a tremendous blessing from the Lord to have this job which I love.
Our first son was born in Maine and our daughter was born while in residence in Quincy, Illinois.
All that time, I thought that I was a Christian. I had no idea how ignorant and foolish I was. During a difficult marital time, the Lord opened my eyes and commandeered my life. Romans 8:28 burned it’s reality into my soul soon after. Although my marriage dissolved, our Master was leading me somewhere I never imagined.
I thank and praise the Lord for transforming an introvert like me into someone who is completely willing to be a fool for Christ. As it seems to be our Lord’s custom, He continued to astound me by raising up some like-minded evangelism crazies like me at my church!
I’m grateful to be able to serve the body as a foot. I’m so happy to be saved from myself. I pray that I’m able to love Jesus more by loving his church. I look forward to spending time with you in service to our Captain.
