Who are the speakers for July 13?

Keynote Speaker - Allison K. Daniels

A song of worship saved her life. At the age of 12, Allison Daniels was invited to sing at a local youth ministry event. She has suffered silently for years as a result of abuse, but that night as she sang "Because He Lives," a shift happened. A girl who wanted to end her life, yet was still searching for peace, went to the altar and found a friend named Jesus. Her life was never the same.

Today, Allison is a Bible teacher and a worship leader. She and her husband, Sean, live in the Tampa, Florida area.
