Saturday July 8th -AM

Amber Kierra Sherrod
Motivational Speaker, Founder of Kingdom Eyes NPO

 

Amber was born with a degenerative eye condition called Retinitis Pigmantosa. She started losing her eyesight as a child and the condition progressed as she grew older. She has  about 5 degrees of my visual field with a limited visual acuity (think tunnel vision or looking through a straw). She remembers always loving going to church as a little girl but never felt that she was fully accepted for the way that God designed me. 

Through Kingdom Eyes NPO, Amber helps others with specials needs understand that they are uniquely designed and fully loved by God.

Worship Leader 

Brendan Brooks
 

 In 2007 Brendan helped start a band called Finding Fortress.  After varied success and drama through an opportunity to move to Nashville they fell apart in 2011.  Through it all he now sees God was saying now is not the time or place.  After heading to Nashville his first solo album was released in the summer of 2016.  Since heading into a solo career God has blessed him time and time again.  Hearing stories of how his music has touched lives and brought people back to church is very humbling to him.

HOST 

Nate and Mandy Kimbleton
Co-Founders, HIS Missions 

 

Nathan "Nate" and Amanda "Mandy" Kimbleton co-founded Halieus International Support (H-I-S) while on a life changing short-term mission trip to Malawi, Africa. Through their own trip, they found community, purpose and an understanding that all people are equal regardless of economic circumstance. While Malawi was their first trip out of the US, it would not be their last. Since the founding of HIS Missions in 2017, the couple has served Jesus in every continent other than Australia and Antarctica.
