Director of Youth for the Nations, USA | @pcestrada
Raised in El Paso, TX it was no time at all till Chris found himself in a lifestyle of drugs, alcohol, lust, & trouble. Not understanding why his dad slept at one house & his mom slept at another sent him on a search that landed him at church. It was here he was invited to youth camp in the summer of 1999. This is where everything changed, all in one night, Chris received the gift of salvation, experienced the baptism of the Holy Spirit, & was called into full-time ministry!
He is a now voice impacting generations. His roaring excitement and ability to address current issues with solid, life-changing truth makes him a dynamic communicator for everyone that hears him. He carries a mandate: to release courage & power to risk takers & dreamers who desire divine turn arounds. Chris passionately pursues ministering the gospel of Jesus Christ, developing leaders who want to transform society, and consulting organizations to have a strategic & lasting influence. Having a successful career in internet car sales, being a former missionary to Sri Lanka, & a youth pastor makes him a diverse resource. In addition to serving as the Director of Youth For The Nations, his lifestyle of excellence, honor, & revival led him to develop The Circle – a 12 month leadership & character intensive for pastors, as well as host the National Youth Leader Experience – a leadership gathering attend by pastors & leaders from all over the world.

Ramsey Ministries | Awaken Africa | @joel.ramsey
After 11 years on Pastoral staff at Citipointe Church in Brisbane Australia, My wife Savannah and I felt the call of God to become missionaries to the world and have made our home base South Africa. With faith birthed out of intimacy, we burn with a fire for the Gospel to be preached with power and authority, merging the worlds of relevant and radical. We desire for the body of Christ to rise up in all it’s unique qualities to spread the good news of Christ not just from the pulpit, but wherever we find ourselves. I have a passion to see every sickness and disease healed in people’s bodies and peoples minds and to see multitudes come to the saving power of Jesus christ. I desire to work alongside the local Church wherever possible to ensure that we are not just making decisions for Jesus but disciples of Jesus.
The rich the poor, the weak the strong, the famous and the forgotten, the love of Jesus is for all people.

After a radical encounter with Jesus, I was set free instantly from severe depression, anxiety and fear. Since that moment I have had a passionate desire for people to encounter that same Jesus not just in word but experientially as well. I am now living in South Africa as missionary with my husband Joel, and I have given my whole life to know Jesus and spread his name throughout the earth. My prayer over both myself and you, is that you fall hopelessly, head over heels in love with him all the more each day. I truly believe that we have not yet seen even a glimpse of the precious things God has in store for us as His beautiful bride. Joel and I have seen many healed of chronic illnesses, deaf ears opened, sight restored, break through in the most hopeless situations, people set free and lives changed. We could tell testimonies all day about the glory and goodness of our King. But really, it is just all about Him, simply being with Him, this is what His heart longs for, and what we were designed and destined for.
