One of the main speakers this year is Associate and Teaching Pastor Brad Riley from Wichita First Church of the Nazarene. Riley has been in ministry for more than 20 years. He is the co-founder of the Ecumenical Christian Prayer group where Catholics and Protestants shared in the power of prayer together in their churches for more than 10 years.

He is also the founder of the Merciful Servants of Christ. Riley said he is “honored to bring a message on prayer, especially during Lent when Christians are called to increase in prayer which is vital to the life of the Christian.”
