Shannon Hoffpauir

Teacher & Speaker 

From the moment we could sit still in our mother’s arms, we have loved stories. Stories around the supper table are some of the best moments in life and are the times we best come to know these people we call family. Much of our heritage is learned through the passing down of stories. This is exactly how the Bible was passed down for generations yet today people seem to believe that the Bible is a list of do’s and don’ts instead of a beautiful story of love, betrayal, forgiveness and redemption.

Shannon uses her divine knowledge of Scripture to put the story back together again. Many people have several pieces of the puzzle, yet they have no idea how it all fits together in the greatest love story ever told. This is what Shannon does! She has an amazing way of connecting the pieces while sharing some of the funniest yet applicable personal stories you have ever heard.

One minute you are laughing and the next minute you realize that the Holy Spirit just spoke and you have an “aha” moment that will stay with you forever.

Mia Koehne

Singer & Speaker 

As a singer/songwriter and worship leader, Mia’s soulful music reflects the painful beauty of human struggles and a passion to worship the God who saves. Her life is a compelling story of sin, surrender, sanctification and song. Living as a testimony to God’s grace and His forgiveness, she is inspired to share that message of hope with others through music as a recording artist, a writer and a speaker. Mia is the wife of Bob and the mother of three children, Chris, Aaron and Miriam.
