As an evangelist, Lucas Connell’s ministry is known for soul winning and releasing people from one of the greatest sicknesses of our generation – mental illness. He commonly sees people healed from chronic depression and anxiety. In one service people will laugh at his humorous stories and weep by the touch of God. As he ministers in the power of the Holy Spirit, addictions are broken and people experience true freedom through inner healing. His ministry is a testimony of triumph over a ten-year drug addition. Gripped by mental illness – depression, hearing voices and suicidal tendencies were all part of the drug-induced psychosis that had become Lucas’ normal way of life – until he stepped into a local church. After one encounter with Jesus, he was instantly set free from all addiction and healed of every illness that gripped his life. After 10 years of pastoring in Australia, Lucas has spent the last six years traveling the globe, preaching at some of the world’s great churches, such as Hillsong, Planetshakers, Wave Church Virginia, C3 San Diego, and many others. Following God’s leading, Lucas, together with his wife Jacque and their two sons, Josiah (11) and Caleb (10) have relocated to the USA to continue to reach as many people as possible with the love and freedom of Jesus. http://www.lucasconnell.com/meet-lucas/

Brandon and his wife Kristen are the Founders and Lead Pastors of Elevate Church, an inner city church in Houston Texas, with the mission of leading those who are lost to an encounter with Jesus. Brandon also saw the need and started the Texas Dream Center in Houston. Through outreach and community oriented projects, the Texas Dream Center has already impacted the lives of thousands of people and will continue to do so with the help of those who have a desire to impact their local community through service and giving. In addition to Elevate, Brandon serves as director of Pro-Claim ministers, a Prison ministry that reaches thousands of people annually behind bars. Pro-Claim was founded 30 years ago by his father Mike Barber and this last year alone saw over 35,000 salvations. Elevate church has become a home for many of these men and women and their families coming out of prison or jail. Brandon is married to Kristen and they have four children together: Braelyn, Avery, Rayna, and Cruz. http://elevatepeople.tv/
