2022 Speakers & Artists



Aable is an independent artist based in Philadelphia, PA. His journey with music began 9 years ago when he was introduced to Christian rap music for the first time. The marriage between a genre he loved and a new found desire to serve God left him inspired, and he began crafting lyrics of his own. In just a few years, Aable realized that the gift God gave him could be used to greatly impact peoples lives, so he decided it was finally time to pursue it more intentionally. Aable desires to use both his music and his life to share deep yet simple truths, in hopes that people would be further equipped to walk in the fullness of what Jesus paid for on the cross. Aable believes dependency on God is essential and has one message for any that would listen. “God, truly, is able.”

    Stephen Thomas


    Stephen Thomas is passionate about many things in life and music is at the top of that list. Growing up in a musical family, Stephen knew he was bound to do something in life that reflected that reality. Stephen leads worship in his church, he’s one of the lead vocalists in his band Artistree, and he loves to DJ! He’s been afforded traveling opportunities to sing across many states, and as far as Africa. Being able to share the language and art of music has truly been a blessing in his life. Stephen is the YFC Director for Washington High School near Pittsburgh. His goal in life is to make an impact for the gospel of Christ. Taking on the model of Jesus, Stephen has involved himself in his local community to create positive and lasting change. Realizing words are just that, words, until action is put behind them, Stephen seeks to please his Heavenly Father, by doing His will, through living out his personal mission statement: “Qualify believers, disciple leaders, and share The Good News daily.”

        Jeniffer Dake


        From the slums of Peru to the hospitals of Ethiopia, Jeniffer has seen the power of God at work in the lives of the broken. Now she travels across America, speaking with raw honesty to young people about how to develop an ever- growing passionate and educated faith. Jeniffer has worked as a model, a waitress, a jeweler, a cake decorator, a biology teacher, and a theater director. In addition to acting in commercials and music videos, she has been in several movies, including the PBS documentary The Johnstown Flood. In 1999, Jeniffer won the best supporting actress award at the Trojan Film Festival at Taylor University. As varied as Jeniffer’s life has been, what drives her is her desire to see young people become discerning and committed followers of Jesus. Working as a youth director for five years, she developed a curriculum that has been adopted by several area churches. One of the founding members of Michael W. Smith’s youth center, Rocketown, Jeniffer has toured as a speaker with Michael, Stacy Orrico, Worship Together, and Point of Grace. Endorsed by internationally renowned worship leader Kevin Singleton and Michael W. Smith, Jeniffer has been described as a speaker with a rare gift for connecting with her audiences in authentic and powerful ways. As one listener said, “Jeniffer was simply amazing. She was fresh. She was new. She was different.” From high school labs to crowded auditoriums, Jeniffer can turn heads and change hearts for Christ.

        Grand Point Worship


        Grand Point Worship is passionate about creating a worship environment where the focus moves away from ourselves and what God can do for us and shifts toward exalting God simply for who He is. The Grand Point Worship team is led by Grand Point Church’s Director of Worship Arts, Chris Clugh. With more than 25 years of worship leading experience, Chris oversees more than 100 volunteers who serve in the church’s worship and tech ministry. Together, the worship team has written several original songs for the church with plans to produce a live recording in early 2022. Grand Point Church is a growing church with three established campuses, more than 20 full-time staff and over 770 volunteers serving in various ministry capacities guided by our four values: We value God’s truth more than our opinions; we value God’s people more than our programs; we value God’s plan more than our plans; and we value God’s mission more than our comfort.
