Todd Friel
Wretched Radio
studied to be a pastor for four years but neglected to actually get saved. He abandoned church ministry plans and did secular TV, radio and stand-up comedy for 6 years. Gratefully, God saved Todd (from hell and stand-up comedy). Since then, Todd has combined his pastoral training and media skills to host Wretched Radio and TV. Todd has one wife, three children and a dog.
Phil Johnson
is Executive Director of Grace to You. He teaches regularly as a lay pastor at Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, CA. He has been closely associated with John MacArthur since 1981 and edits most of Dr. MacArthur’s major books. Phil is a trustee of the UK-based Martyn Lloyd-Jones Recordings Trust, a member of FIRE, husband to Darlene, and father of three sons (all now adults with their own households, and all still active members of Grace Community Church).
Dr. Peter Hammond
Frontline Fellowship
is a missionary who has pioneered evangelistic outreaches in the war zones of Mozambique, Angola and Sudan. Often travelling by off road motorbike, Peter has travelled hundreds of thousands of miles to deliver Bibles to persecuted Christians in Africa and Eastern Europe. In the course of his missionary activities Peter has been ambushed, come under aerial and artillery bombardments, been stabbed, shot at, beaten by mobs, arrested and imprisoned. On some mission trips he has flown far behind enemy lines to the beleaguered Nuba Mountains in Central Sudan with tonnes of Bibles, books and relief aid. He has then walked throughout the war devastated Nuba Mountains showing the Jesus film in Arabic, proclaiming the Gospel, training pastors and evading enemy patrols.
Justin Peters
The influence of two loving Christian parents coupled with the challenges of Cerebral Palsy led Justin to begin inquiring about salvation at an early age. Shortly after a visit with his then pastor, Dr. John G. McCall, God graciously saved Justin at age seven. God’s call on Justin’s life to vocational ministry came in November 1995 while attending Mississippi State University.

Our Elders @ T4G

Every year our elders go to one conference per year for a time of refreshment and edification. Last year they went to The Sheperd’s Conference 2009 and this year they are going to Together for the Gospel 2010 (T4G).

Q: What is T4G?

A: T4G began as a friendship between four pastors. These friends differed on a number of theological issues, like baptism and the charismatic gifts. But they were committed to standing together for the main thing—the gospel of Jesus Christ. So they began a conference which occurs every two years and aims principally at encouraging other pastors to do the same—to stand together for the gospel.

Here are some highlights from the last T4G in 2008:

Please pray for their safety as they travel, and pray this would be a time of refreshment and edification for them.
