AARON MARSHALL – RATIO CHRISTI
Ratio Christi (Latin for Reason for Christ) wants to keep students strong in their faith so they can withstand the challenges they face as they go out into the world. We do this in three ways.
Arm Students with Reasons to Follow Christ
We bring faith and logic together to give students thought-out reasons for following Jesus Christ. Our goal is to help Christians work through their doubts, and ultimately share Christ with their peers.
Equip Professors with Tools to Share Their Faith
With the right encouragement, resources, and platform, professors can share their own faith with the students around them and be a light within their spheres of influence. We help provide these tools.
Plant University Clubs around the World
University students are questioning purpose, faith, and identity. Our nationwide clubs provide a safe place to ask apologetics questions (and give leaders resources to tackle them with confidence).
CARLA PORTER – KENYA
Carla Porter directs Living Faith International, the parent organization for many Christian ministries across Africa. Carla stepped forward as the leader of the ministry after the death of her husband, Wade, in 2012.
In founding Living Faith International, Wade and Carla sought to show compassion to vulnerable populations of African children.
Carla is the senior pastor of Victory Faith Church in Nairobi. The congregation is deeply involved in teaching, mentoring, and counseling high school students in secondary schools throughout Nairobi. She is also the director of Our Home, an orphanage and child care center in Nairobi, Kenya.
Carla is driven to fulfill the call of God in her life. She is compassionate for those who do not know God and do not understand that He gives life meaning. She wants to break down and simplify the truths of God’s Word, teaching Biblical lessons to build up believers so that they may carry out God’s will for the rest of their lives.
Going forward, Carla wants to be a voice for the plight of orphans and vulnerable children whose destinies are lost without intervention from the body of Christ.
BRIAN AND CARA SALLEY – FRANCE
In April of 1993, God miraculously delivered Brian from a life of sin and filled him with the Holy Ghost. Cara also received salvation and the baptism of the Holy Ghost during high school. She came from a family with a Catholic / Atheist background, and God did a miraculous work in her life. In 2001, after graduating from Rhema Bible Training Center, Brian and Cara stepped out into their first full-time ministry position. Since then, God has led them on a journey of ministry, allowing them to serve in every area from Children’s Pastors to Ministry of Helps.
In the spring of 2011, after 16 years of ministry, God began speaking to their hearts and gave direction for them to go “from the English to the French.” After ministering in England for five years, holding Simplify Soul Winning seminars, training in personal evangelism, teaching in Bible schools, and overseeing Carmel Bible College, God directed them to transition to France. Their specific focus at this time is to serve in the harvest fields of the villages of France, and they are currently doing this by overseeing a church plant in Douvaine, France.
If you would like to have them ministers in your church or simply to share the vision of Salley Ministries and their missions’ work in France, please contact them at [email protected]

MARK AND VICTORIA BOWLING – EVANGELIZING THE WORLD
The Mission of Global Impact Ministries is the evangelization of the world. We are moving forward with this vision through Good News Miracle Festivals, Faith and Fire Leadership Conferences, raising sponsorship for national church planters, and anything else the Holy Spirit leads us to do.
Since 2001, we have seen more than 320,000 people call on the name of Jesus for salvation in the festivals. Thousands have been baptized in the Holy Spirit. Multitudes have been healed by the power of God. There is significant church growth as a result of the outreaches.
In the conferences, ministers are being strengthened in the faith. They are being mobilized to multiply and plant churches in unreached areas of the world. So far, there are over 11,000 churches planted in seven nations as a result of the festivals and conferences.
Ricky Leonard Ministries
Ricky Leonard Ministries, Inc. is all about proclaiming the truth of Jesus around the world. We want to see people added to the Kingdom of Heaven DAILY!
Since 1981 we’ve been traveling around the WORLD!
Ricky has preached the good news about Jesus to people on five continents. His wife Mary traveled with him to many of these places, and now, since he is in heaven, Mary and their daughter Sarah are continuing the same work that he began. We want to go to all of the places we haven’t yet been! We love all the nations of the world and want them to see the light of the Kingdom of Heaven and the truth about Jesus through any means necessary.
We love people. We will help with physical needs when possible, but our main focus is on leading people to faith in Jesus so that their spirit is at peace with God (that has a more eternal impact). We understand the need to meet both spiritual and physical needs. Jesus also saw the need to meet both spiritual and physical needs. He taught people out of compassion. And out of compassion he healed the sick, raised the dead, and carried a money purse for the poor. We want to do the same.
