Levi Lusko & Fresh Life Ministries
Fresh Life Church was pioneered by Pastor Levi and Jennie Lusko in 2007. From the very beginning, the desire was to make Jesus famous and teach the Bible in a way that people could understand - utilizing every form of technology possible to communicate a message of hope.
At the first gathering, there were only 14 people present but that tiny seed of faith has grown into an avalanche of a move of God that exceeds what anyone could have anticipated. Through Network Sites, radio, television, online broadcasts, worship records, social media, and podcasts, Fresh Life’s ministry spills over borders and infuses hope in people all across the country and world.
Though the church has grown and the dreams are big, the focus is intentionally small – impacting people with the shocking, life-changing grace of Jesus one life at a time. January of 2017 marked ten powerful years of Fresh Life, but the story has only just begun to unfold, and the half has not yet been told.
Pastor Levi and Jennie Lusko
Levi and Jennie Lusko pioneered Fresh Life Church in 2007. Under their leadership, it has grown to include locations in Montana, Utah, Oregon, and Wyoming. Through television and online streaming, the ministry reaches around the world.
Levi and Jennie have one son: Lennox, and four daughters: Alivia, Daisy, Clover, and Lenya, who is in heaven. Levi is also the author of the bestselling books Through the Eyes of a Lion, Swipe Right and I Declare War."
Andy Stanley and North Point Church
North Point Church... We know you want to get life right. For more than 25 years, we’ve been helping people just like you discover a practical faith that leads to greater meaning and direction in life.
Learn more about North Point Community Church. Our Mission is to inspire people to follow Jesus by engaging them in the life and mission of North Point Community Church.
Our strategy is to endear our community by ensuring people know we're here, and happy we're here and are better off because we're here. Inspire our audience by creating experiences that cause people to say: "I'm glad I came and can't wait to come back." Equip our core by enlisting and training students and adults to give, lead, and invite.
What They Believe at North Point
About the Scriptures: We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error.
About God: We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world.
About Humanity: We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
About Salvation: We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.
About the Christian Life: We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.
About the Church: We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving him and by making him known to the lost world.

Andrew Wommack & Charis Bible College
Over fifty years ago, an encounter with God changed Andrew Wommack's life forever, and Andrew believes that God will do the same for you. We consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to share the truth of His life-changing power and grace with you.
God called us to teach the truth of the gospel to the body of Christ with special emphasis on His unconditional love and the balance between grace and faith.
We are doing our best to fulfill that call by teaching at conferences, in churches, on television, through podcasts, by training others at Charis Bible College, and by developing ministry materials to help you in your relationship with the Lord. We were once on the radio, but we have moved on to further-reaching mediums such as podcasts.
For Andrew and Jamie, the ministry has always been about people. Andrew knows that to be effective in ministry on radio and television, he must always maintain personal interaction with those who are following and depending on the ministry. This is a fundamental principle that many ministers have forgotten. Radio and television make it possible to reach millions with the good news, but they never afford the opportunity for personal interaction that keeps a ministry fresh and in touch with the needs of people.
Andrew has taught and ministered to thousands in America and around the world, in churches and at special events. In those meetings, he always took time to minister to the needs of people and talk with them as time permitted. But it wasn't enough, and he knew the time was fast approaching when he would need to host his own meetings.
It is difficult to tell all we believe in 8 sentences, but we make this statement of faith available to those who ask for one so they will know we are Bible-believing Christians. Listening to our teachings will give you much more information. We appreciate your interest in growing in the things of the Lord!
Our Belief's (Andrew Wommack Ministries)
- We believe the Bible is inspired and empowered by God, infallible, and authoritative.
- We believe in one eternal God who exists as three separate persons; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life as He walked among men, demonstrated the authority and power of God in works and speech, died on the cross, rose from the dead on the third day, and is now seated at the right hand of God has accomplished all that is necessary for man’s salvation.
- We believe it is essential for man to repent of sin and by faith receive the finished work of Christ by confessing Him as Lord with his mouth and believing in his heart resulting in regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
- We believe the Holy Spirit is continuing the work He started at Pentecost empowering believers to live a godly life and continue in all the works of Jesus.
- We believe in the imminent return of Jesus and that those who have believed in Him will be resurrected to a heavenly dwelling in an incorruptible body, and those who do not believe will join Satan and his host in everlasting punishment.
- We believe the true Church is composed of all born-again believers in Christ, regardless of denominational affiliation.
- We believe all born-again believers have been commissioned to share the complete Gospel to all the world.

Charis Bible College is equipping the saints for the work of the ministry, training disciples to go out and share the Gospel with the rest of the world in the way God has uniquely called each individual to do it.
Every believer is called to be a minister of Christ; some are called to pastor, some to evangelize, some to prophesy, but we are all, as believers, called to go forth and make disciples! We at Charis believe effective ministry can only happen when we understand who God is and what our relationship is with Him.
Once we understand the grace and love of God and our identity in Him, we can make an effortless impact in our world!

Joel Osteen & Lakewood Church
At Lakewood, they believe your best days are still out in front of you. Whether you are joining in person or online, they invite you to experience their services and be a part of the Lakewood family.
The Bible says when you are planted in the house of the Lord, you will flourish. Get ready to step into a new level of your destiny!
Raised in Houston, Texas, with a loving family of seven and world-renowned parents in full-time ministry, Joel Osteen never imagined that he would follow so closely in his father’s footsteps. As a young man, his training and interests were behind the scenes in television production, though he was close to his father in ministry.
His father always encouraged him to preach, but Joel would politely decline time and time again until one day in October 1999 when his father was admitted to the hospital with kidney complications.
Joel finally agreed to preach the next Sunday, and his father passed the following week. Joel’s first sermon was the last his father ever heard. Joel and his wife, Victoria, were suddenly thrust into full-time leadership of Lakewood Church.
In 2003, Lakewood Church acquired the Compaq Center, former home of the NBA’s Houston Rockets. The next 18 months were spent renovating the arena, and on July 15, 2005, the first of seven weekly worship services was held in the new 16,000-seat auditorium.
That first week, Lakewood added over 10,000 new members, and within a year became one of the most popular out-of-town visitor destinations in Houston. Over the next few years, Lakewood continued its growth and currently draws more than 45,000 weekly attendees.
Joel Osteen's Youtube Channel
Since 1999, under the leadership of Pastor Joel Osteen, Lakewood has grown in a variety of ways. Lakewood’s commitment to community outreach continues to increase, and its international media broadcast has expanded into over 200 million households in the United States.
There is a new generation rising at Lakewood Church, a generation that doesn’t believe in limits, one that believes all things are possible. Pastor Joel and Victoria are leading this generation with a practical message that is transforming lives.
A message of hope, healing, and forgiveness. A message that you can live the abundant life God is calling you to. A message that you can Discover the Champion in You!
