Steve Dittmar, and his wife Cammy have pastored Jubilee Church in Southern California for 25 years. Pastor Steve’s pursuit of the Lord is like King David – one after His Own heart. Prayer is the means by which Steve discerns the Lord’s truth, and by practice these truths have shaped his life. With apostolic authority couched in genuine humility, Steve communicates the heart of God and his own heart, helping people recognize the Lord in the midst of their journey. This frees them to take hold of hope again, and allows the Holy Spirit to make sense of the senseless, and bring understanding to His mysteries. There is a place where faith is renewed, where hope comes alive and love drives out all fear. It’s found in the Secret Place in the Presence of the Lord and is the focal point for the ministry of Pastor Steve and Cammy Dittmar.
Ray Hughes lives within earshot of the Singing River near Muscle Shoals, Alabama. He has travelled the world for over 40 years as an author, storyteller, songwriter, and poet. He is passionate about creativity and training creative people. He is also passionate about biscuits, old guitars, and looking gift horses in the mouth (but not necessarily in that order). He doesn’t trust people that good dogs don’t like.

Lucy has been leading worship and writing songs for many years, both as a solo artist and with her talented band of musicians and singers. Her heart in worship is simply to create a space for people to encounter the love of God. In her worship expression and the songs Lucy writes, she wants to create a sound that unites people and ignites hearts to love God, love themselves and love one another more.
Jesus is the best artistic director in town…and He always show up 🙂 My heart for worship as a psalmist is to use my gift of imagination to birth creative worship in others and help people gain a fresh perspective on what worship can be when our whole being engages. I really believe there is a new era of worship coming. It’s so much more than a song, even though the atmosphere is filled with new ones in His presence. It’s a majestic, corporate experience that is different every time we meet. There’s no formula to facilitating this encounter apart from listening to His voice and being willing to surrender to His orchestration 🙂

Rod is best known for his uncompromising and direct message of renewing the mind to God’s Word. His desire is to see believers released into the fullness of God’s plan for their lives. His ministry is one of developing an intimacy with the Father through a life of prayer and communion with the Holy Spirit. A trademark of his ministry is the humour, and clarity, with which the Gospel of Jesus Christ is communicated. Born in Southern California he has lived in Great Britain since 1983. He came to Britain as Director of a Bible school in London and soon pioneered a church where he was Pastor for three years. He also served as European Director of Edwin Louis Cole Ministries.
Julie has a heart that truly burns for the nation, with a particular call to pray for Parliament and the media. She comes from a media background, having been Brian Epstein’s secretary during the height of the Beatles popularity, and also working for the UK’s top 60’s chat show as Simon Dee’s PA. She is very much aware of how rapidly the music and strength of a generation can sway an entire nation. She is equally persuaded of the Lord’s desire to strongly move amongst His church, through the music and youth of the nation.
