Lisa Harper

Rarely are the terms “hilarious storyteller” and “theological scholar” used in the same sentence, much less used to describe the same person but then again, Lisa Harper is anything but sterotypical! She’s been lauded as a compelling communicator, whose writing and speaking emphasize that accruing knowledge about God pales next to a real and intimate relationship with Jesus.
She’s spoken at hundreds of national and international women’s events, as well as in churches around the world. She’s also invested locally and has been leading the same weekly neighborhood Bible study for 15 years. And if you can’t find her teaching, studying, hiking, or riding her motorcycle, she’s probably in a coffee shop sipping a mocha and typing away on her computer because she’s also had 14 books published – including the recent best-selling devotional, Life.
Lisa’s greatest accomplishment to date is getting to be Missy’s mom through the miracle of adoption. Because in 2014, after a difficult journey and several adoption losses, she finally got to bring her daughter home from Haiti and she’s been smiling even wider ever since!

Sandy Ross

Sandy Ross

In addition to being a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, Sandy Ross is a dynamic teacher of God’s Word who passionately wants people to experience the goodness of God through obeying His Truth. More than 20 years ago, God planted the vision for Women of Excellence Ministries in Sandy’s heart. Today she serves as the founding pastor of this fruitful ministry that reaches hundreds of women every month. Women of Excellence is the women’s ministry of Summit Christian Center, where Sandy and her husband Randy have faithfully served since 1984.

Mariah Steele

At the tender age of 18 years old, Mariah Queen Steele had an encounter with Jesus that sparked an interest in working in full time ministry.

Now, over a decade later, that spark turned flame still burns. She’s worked her way from making copies and answering phones at the front desk to an ordained minister, young adults leader and keynote speaker. 

Mariah connects to those she speaks to through by taking her life experiences and infusing them with God’s word to be a light. Her goal is to be a practical example of a willing vessel. Her pursuit to live out her purpose as a single woman has not been an easy journey, it’s been filled with many ups and downs, but she has not let them stop her from fulfilling her God purpose. Her prayer is to inspire others to experience the spark that has now set a blaze in her heart to encourage others to find their purpose and live up to their limitless potential.
