Aspire Speakers & Artists
Author & Speaker
Melissa is madly in love with Jesus and addicted to the study of His word. She is passionate about knowing and inspiring other women to seek Him by opening their ears to listen to His Spirit, reading His Word curiously, asking questions and clinging tightly to God through the storms of life. As a wife to Sean, and mother of four great kids, she works out her faith on a daily basis always in need of God’s Word to draw her back to the things of first importance.
Comedian & Speaker
Amberly Neese is a speaker, comedian, and author with a passion for “GRINspiring” others. She has won hearts (and funny bones) of people all over the country (www.amberlyneese.com) at various retreats, conferences, and fundraisers. Amberly received her Master’s degree from Biola University and now serves as a professor at both Embry-Riddle Aeronautical and Grand Canyon Universities.
Amberly has a heart for connecting others to God and to one another. Her three most current bible studies are “The Belonging Project” (guidelines to help you thrive in biblical community), “Common Ground” (strategies to help you navigate sticky relationships), and her latest, “Untangling Faith” (approaches to tackle deep spiritual questions by looking at the questions of Jesus). In addition, her popular devotional, “The Friendship Initiative: Loving and Connecting Like Jesus” provides new strategies for making friendships. Amberly is a featured comedian and speaker for both Aspire and Marriage Date Night tours. She and her husband have two adult children and live in Prescott, Arizona, where they enjoy the great outdoors, the Food Network, and all things Star Wars.
Singer/Songwriter, Worship Leader, & 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.
