Connie Witter, founder of Because of Jesus Ministries is a speaker, teacher, and the author of numerous Bible studies and books that focus on Jesus and His finished work. After 20 years of struggling to "measure up" Connie cried out for the Truth that would set her free from the frustration and disappointment of trying to qualify herself for God's blessings. This began her journey out of darkness into the marvelous light of Jesus and His unconditional love and grace. Whether ministering in a church, conference, prison or at her weekly Bible study, Connie's passion is for everyone's heart to be awakened to their true identity as a blessed & loved child of God! Connie’s TV program, “Because of Jesus with Connie Witter,” airs nationally every Wednesday morning at 8:30 AM on direct TV 363, Cox Channel 23 in Tulsa, OK, KUGB TV 28.1 in Houston, TX, and worldwide on her ministry website: BecauseofJesus.com.
Sherry Riether is the co-pastor of Healing Grace church and co-founder of Grace United with her husband, Pastor Greg Riether. She is also a human resource professional in a corporate setting. As a young child, Sherry can recall feeling completely surrounded by God's love and believing anything was possible. Over the years, shame, guilt, and condemnation took the place of child-like faith stemming from the belief that she was never good enough and church became a place to avoid. In 2007, Sherry’s future husband, Greg, shared the message of grace with her and she learned that she had been made forever righteous and holy. Accepting the grace of Jesus Christ has changed her life and brought her into her real identity as a daughter in Christ. She knows she is completely accepted and loved; all the time, no matter what. She is learning, once again, to live happy and free and to believe that with Jesus, anything is possible!

Shannan Orr prided herself on being a “good girl.” At age 14, she was drawn to Jesus having heard about the love of God, and then immediately set about trying to be good enough to deserve His love! She spent nearly 30 years volunteering at church in hopes of hearing “Well done, thy good and faithful servant.” Shannan felt born-again again after reading Connie Witter’s Bible study, “Because of Jesus” and realizing that her right standing with God was a gift of His love, not something to be earned. Shannan's books “Refocus” and “Yes I Am” preschool curriculum are part of the BOJM resources to help people of all ages understand the love of God and their identity in Christ. Her visual teaching style flows from her 30+ years of children’s ministry, making the good news of Jesus simple enough for even adults to understand.

Christy Rose is a professed recovering Pharisee! From a young child, she always behaved in ways that would bring her acceptance and approval. After graduating from Rhema Bible Training Center, Christy began living her dream of being a stay-at-home wife and mother and still had time to teach Sunday school and Bible study and be a youth and children's pastor with her husband Aaron. Christy became a woman of grace when God's unconditional love and grace brought her to the place of exchanging her self-righteousness for Jesus' righteousness! As a mother of six she has learned to depend on His love and grace and continues to share the true Good News in Sunday School classes, Bible Studies, and conferences. Her humor, life experiences, and love of God's Word uniquely equip her as a dynamic and anointed minister of the Gospel of Grace.
