Sebastian Demrey
Sebastian Demrey is a name to remember, as his tireless enthusiasm and passion for combining music with a powerful message will leave you wanting more. Sebastian's own search led him on a musical journey across the globe where he picked up a variety of influences and styles along the way. Embraced by his local church, Sebastian served as their Music Director from 1997 to 2003. Since then he continues to lead many worship services. Together with his friend Jimmy LaHaie, Sebastian has just released a new CD - a refreshed acoustic Hymn album collection called "HERITAGE HYMNS OF OUR FAITH." It was recorded in both French and English.

Jimmy LaHaie
Singer Sebastian Demrey and multi-instrumentalist Jimmy LaHaie are united in their vision: To revisit and re-imagine the greatest hymns of the past, whilst remaining true to the spirit of the timeless originals. Hailing from Quebec, both were successful musicians in their own right before forming ‘Heritage’ in 2007. Since, they have released three French albums and toured the world with their music. They have received numerous awards, including for the video of Dieu Tout-Puissant (Oh Lord My God) which features a choir of 5,000 voices recorded the world over.

Brian C. Stiller
July 2011 Brian was appointed Global Ambassador for the World Evangelical Alliance, one of three world Christian bodies: The Vatican, The World Council of Churches (including Orthodox communions) and the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) representing some 600 million Christians. Brian has just released a new book "Evangelicals Around the World" Bringing together a team of multi-disciplined scholars, writers, activists, and leaders from around the world, this handbook provides a compelling look at the diverse group we call Evangelicals. In this guide, written by those who know the movement the best, the issues that divide and the beliefs that unite this global Christian movement are presented in a journalistic fashion. Evangelicals Around the World describes the past and the present, the unique characters, and the powerful ministries of Evangelicals. With a large trim size and colorful page design, this beautiful book is the perfect choice for laypeople and scholars alike.

R.A. Dickey
Fourteen years ago, R.A Dickey was a heralded No. 1 draft choice of the Texas Rangers, only to have an $810,000 signing bonus, and his lifelong dream, ripped away by an X- ray-and the discovery that he did not have an ulna collateral ligament in his right elbow. Sustained by his profound Christian faith, the love of his wife and children, and a relentless quest for self-awareness and authenticity, the immensely likable Dickey details his transformation from a reckless, risk-taking loner to a grounded, life- affirming big leaguer. He emerged as one of the premier pitchers in the National League in 2010-and the knuckleballing embodiment of the wonders that perseverance and human wisdom can produce. Dickey views his story as one of redemption. Readers will come to see it as something more-a uniquely American story of beating back demons, listening to your heart, and overcoming extraordinary odds.

Kevin Downes
A faith-based period drama with a modern-day purpose and explosive sports action is headed to theatres nationwide Oct. 16. WOODLAWN, an exhilarating high school football story about revival and reconciliation, offers hope for overcoming the racial crises facing North America today. The movie, an Erwin Brothers film produced by Kevin Downes, tells the true-life story of Tony Nathan (newcomer Caleb Castille), who lands in a powder keg of anger and violence when he joins fellow African-American students at Woodlawn High School in Birmingham, Ala., after its government-mandated desegregation in 1973. The Woodlawn Colonels football team is a microcosm of the problems at the school and in the city, which erupts in cross burnings and riots, and Coach Tandy Geralds (Nic Bishop) is at a loss to solve these unprecedented challenges with his disciplinarian ways.

Andy Erwin
Director Andy Erwin says “Woodlawn is the story about the redemption of a cynic through a reluctant hero with the influence of an unabashed optimist. And these three men mixed together in the midst of this spiritual awakening that really hit America in the early ’70s called the Jesus Movement. Something special happened, and a city healed.”
