Nate Grahl Shares His Hope
Our new friend Nate Grahl, a graduate of Bible College and a John C. Maxwell Leadership Team member, has served on various mission trips and travels internationally as the CEO of a multimillion-dollar corporation. Nate has had an interest in the Book of Revelation since his early twenties. Many experiences have shaped and solidified Nate’s faith. In 2012, a drunk driver tragically took the life of Nate’s father. This event challenged Nate’s faith causing him to question, “Who is God?” Through searching the scriptures, Nate came to the conclusion that God is love, and we are not able to understand everything. Nate found peace and love in his decision. Nate trusts that God is our guide into all truth. Nate explains that there are aspects of Revelation that are still a mystery, but as you will read, they are not a necessity to understanding God’s plan. Nate’s study of Revelation has brought him hope for the future. Need To Talk: Dan (661) 607-7558 David (661) 755-2546

Levi Dade Shares His Hope
Levi Dade is a Mississippi native currently attending Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas. He created Defending Christianity in the Spring of 2020 convinced that the Church of Jesus Christ could do a better job at defending the faith. Since then, he's even more convinced! Defending Christianity is divided between the Defending Christianity Podcast and the Defending Christianity Blog. Both have the same mission: to give Christians a reliable resource of information so they will be able to offer the world a defense for the hope that's within them with truth and grace. Levi's conviction is that by embracing a faith where the heart and mind are both used to love Christ and others, Christians are more capable of showing the love of Christ to others as they engage. Levi's prayer for the Church is that Christians will love Christ with their minds and use what they know to reach the world for his glory and his Kingdom alone. Levi writes apologetics courses for an online ministry, CORE Leadership, which graciously provides free online courses to young adults, Christians, and youth for the purpose of discipleship. Levi is also a photographer for his university, and he started his photography business, Dade Photography, when he was in high school in 2017. You can typically find Levi reading a book, kayak fishing, hiking, writing, taking photos for his school's yearbook, or struggling to decide which one of these activities he should do!
