Mercy Chefs

Chef Visionary: Gary LeBlanc

■ The Visionary: Gary LeBlanc, an experienced chef and restaurant- and hotel-management specialist, and founder of Portsmouth-based Mercy Chefs.

■ The “Aha!” Moment: After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, LeBlanc felt compelled to return to his former hometown, where many family members still lived, to offer his help. In a city that loves food, LeBlanc did what he knows how to do best: He cooked, volunteering with an organization running a mobile kitchen. Two weeks’ exposure, however, to standard disaster-relief food service—cold food, warm water, inadequate facilities and an alarming absence of food safety and sanitation—left LeBlanc determined that it could be done better.

■ The Vision: In the wake of disaster, hot meals, professionally prepared and served with love, could offer not merely sustenance, but also comfort and support to victims and the first responders there to help.

Nine months after returning from his volunteer experience in New Orleans, LeBlanc, inspired by his deep Christian faith, founded Mercy Chefs as a nonprofit with a mission to “feed people, body and soul” when disaster or devastation strikes.

“Food,” says LeBlanc, “is love.”

What he envisioned in 2006 as a “humanitarian hobby” has now become the consuming focus of Gary LeBlanc’s life, a full-time job. And for that, he expresses nothing but gratitude for the gift of this mission, this calling.

 “We always leave,” he says, “more blessed than when we arrive.”

About Mercy Chefs:

Mercy Chefs is a non-profit, faith based, charitable organization committed to serving high quality professionally prepared meals, during local, state and national disasters and emergencies. In order to accomplish our mission, we use state-of-the art mobile kitchens and organizational resources that stand ready for a rapid response deployment to multiple locations. Serving victims, first responders and volunteers is at the core of Mercy Chefs’ calling to show God’s compassion and hospitality. We train church-based volunteer groups, engage Christian hospitality industry professionals as Mercy Chefs, and use our strategic alliances with supporting government and non-government agencies to feed those in need.

Guest Introduction: ​
US Army ​Lt​. Col​. (ret.) Sargis Sangari ​is ​the ​CEO of The Near East Center for Strategic Engagement LLC​ and ​Founder of the United Assyrian Appeal​ Besides his six years of combat deployment in the Mid East​ including ​22 Special Forces missions​, 144 combat patrols and commanding men during numerous enemy attacks​. Sargis​ was accorded diplomatic status in Kuwait as Director of Host Nation Affairs. The United Assyrian Appeal ​focuses on assisting the Military Families of the Dwekh Nawsha​/Assyrian Armed Forces to stabilize the well being of Assyrians in Iraq & Syria. ​


Lt Col. Sargis Sangari is a retired US Army Colonel who saw extensive combat in the Mid East as a Special Operations Forces soldier and who, after retirement, decided to help advise the fledgling Assyrian Christian Army in Iraq known as Dwekh Nawsha with his military expertise.

He found himself extremely busy since 2014. "The phone continued ringing off the hook-all hours of the day-we were being hit with rockets and mortars, they tell me, in one of our sectors Daesh (ISIS) is trying to overrun us and outflank our sector, or there's a suspicious vehicle approaching a checkpoint from behind the Forward Lines of Troops (FLOT).

We have to counterattack, call in airstrikes, against multiple targets, which we were not equipped to destroy. The multiple forces in Iraq still seek input and advice. There are wounded, limited paramedic capabilities. They get low on supplies or they have a problem with the Pesh (Peshmerga) letting them receive foreign fighters who would only gladly serve." But they have other more basic problems. "The soldiers prefer to stay with their towns and villages to protect their immediate families but they have to feed them so they are forced to join Shia militias or Kurdish force structures or any others who pay them but thus leave their people unprotected to Islamic State and their region in the chaos of sectarian violence between Sunni Muslim Kurds, and Shia and Arab Sunnis". 

This is when United Assyrian, a 501C3 was formed to help their families and collects money to help feed the families so that their loved ones have the option of remaining in the ranks of the Assyrian Army and under an Assyrian Christian command and control.

Michael Savage discovered them and did a Christmas appeal on Dec 21st, 2015. The late William Peter Blatty who wrote the Exorcist donated as well as dozens of ordinary people who want to help.


Retired Lt. Col. Sargis Sangari, who was deployed to Iraq during his 20-year career in the U.S. Army, is one of the Americans advising the Assyrian Army, known as Dwekh Nawsha, which means “self-sacrifice” in the ancient Aramaic language used by Jesus and still spoken by the Assyrian Christians.

According to Sangari, the Assyrian military force, which is primarily based in Iraq’s Assyrian Nineveh plain, is closely aligned with the strategic goals and aspirations of the United States.

Lieutenant Colonel Sargis Sangari was born and raised in Rezaiyeh (Urmia), Iran. He immigrated to the United States in 1980 at age ten after the Iranian Revolution. 

LTC Sangari received a two-year Reserve Officer Training Corps scholarship and began his Army service in 1994 after graduating from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois, earning a Bachelors of Science in Political Science and receiving a commission in the Infantry. After completing the Infantry Officer Basic Course, he was assigned to 1st Battalion, 506 Infantry Regiment (Air Assault), Camp Greaves and Camp Giant Korea, where he served as a two-time Rifle Platoon Leader. 

LTC Sangari deployed to Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Croatia in support of Operation Joint Endeavor as the principle staff advisor for Chief of Staff Military Operations for U.S. Forces and National Agencies force protection for Implementation Forces (IFOR) and Stabilization Forces (SFOR) and the theater safety officer for all of Theater SFOR.


*Dwekh Nawsha, an Iraqi-Christian paramilitary force based in Kurdish-controlled northern Iraq. Dwekh Nawsha is one of the major Assyrian Christian militias fighting genocide at the hands of ISIS.

Last name: Beatley

Terry Beatley, author of the recently released book What If We've Been Wrong? Keeping my promise to America's "Abortion King" and president of Hosea Initiative reveals Nathanson's* 8-point strategic marketing plan to deceive American women into accepting abortion and his political ploy called the "Catholic Strategy" -- an intentional ploy to separate Catholic teaching from legislative judgment. Nathanson gave Terry instructions to reveal his former strategy of deceit and to deliver his personal parting message to America.

Terry Beatley is president of Hosea Initiative, author, wife, and mother. The Hosea Initiative is a non-profit organization which brings healing truth to a broken world devoured by secular lies. Through the power of story-telling, Hosea Initiative teaches a broader understanding of historical facts, exposes the abortion industry's exploitation of women, and explains why worldview matters.

Terry has been a contributing writer for The Washington Times, World Net Daily, Fairfax Free Citizen, and The Free Lance Star. Terry has been interviewed for articles in the Washington Post, World Magazine, The Catholic Herald, and the Virginia Right, and has done various radio interviews. Terry is a 2015 worldview graduate of Chuck Colson's Fellows Program, a 2012 graduate of the Jennifer Byler Institute, former Virginia coordinator for, a former investment broker of 14 years and a retired homeschool mother of two daughters. In 1986, she graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Business. She currently serves on the Virginia Christian Alliance Board of Directors. Terry has been married for 30 years to Kenny and they reside in Virginia. For more information, go to

*Bernard Nathanson was a former abortionist and co-founder of NARAL (NARAL Pro-Choice America). He worked with Betty Friedan and others to legalize abortion in the U.S. After killing more than 60,000 babies, he had a profound conversion after seeing the development of the pre-born baby via ultrasound. Nathanson spent the rest of his life opposing abortion, most prominently through his production of two films that revealed abortion: The Silent Scream and Eclipse of Reason. How did America's "Abortion King" succeed in selling the abortion lie?


After twenty years working in the insurance and investment business, Terry did what feminists had warned her would be most dissatisfying – she became a stay at home mom homeschooling her children for the next eight years. While studying American history, she became perplexed as to how America overcame slavery only to dehumanize another category of people – unborn babies. Terry’s quest for answers led her to research and then interview Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the doctor once known as the "Abortion King," who admitted to being a mass murderer after cofounding what is known today as NARAL Pro-Choice America. He deeply regretted unleashing the culture of death onto America.  

Dr. Nathanson gave Terry a  mission: to deliver his personal parting message and teach the strategy of how he used a deceptive propaganda campaign to deceive the American public which ultimately paved the way for the Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision. He admitted to stripping the unborn child of all rights and protections. Terry promised him that she would make his name, story and mission common knowledge until Roe v. Wade is overturned and young women know the truth.  Hosea Initiative is one of the ways in which she is working toward this promise.

She is a graduate of the 2014-2015 Chuck Colson Fellows Worldview Program and is actively engaged in raising funds to make Hosea Initiative into a national organization.

In 2011, Terry ran a PAC devoted to defeating Planned Parenthood’s “Saving Grace in the Virginia General Assembly." She has worked to awaken Virginians to the domestic and international threat to their parental rights and she has worked toward racial reconciliation by uplifting the principles of American liberty in minority communities. Currently, Terry serves on the Virginia Christian Alliance Board of Directors.

She is a 1986 Virginia Tech graduate; resides in Virginia with her husband of 30 years and two children.

Last name: Heagy

Susan Heagy & Survivor PesiyWe aim to assist every Holocaust Survivor who needs our help. We need the donations of people like you. And, we need gifts, small or large, to pass out to our Holocaust Survivors. We need volunteers. The Survivors need you.

Abundant Hope International
Susan Heagy, President and Founder

usan E. Heagy is founder and president of Abundant Hope International (AHI), a leading non-profit organization providing relational and humanitarian aid assistance to Holocaust Survivors in Israel.  AHI offers education to both the public and private sector and global relationships with Survivors of the Shoah are established to address the trauma and PTSD suffered from WWII. 

Susan brings with her experience obtained through management, staff training, corporate oversight and promotions in the movie theatre industry.  Whether she was promoting movies like “The Mexican” with flamenco dancers or a golf movie with putting greens, she has implemented a creative approach with an eye to increased revenue and wide success.

Susan has devoted her entire career since 2004 to the philanthropic and nonprofit sector developing programs to encourage the public sector to join AHI in assisting the Survivors.

Dividing her time between Israel and speaking tours in the USA and various countries, she visits with her four children and five grandchildren in America.

Ms. Heagy is available to speak on request with the purpose of educating about the many aspects not generally known of the Holocaust of WWII and those who survived.  She shares the personal war accounts of the individual Survivors with the intent of making sure they are never forgotten.



Abundant Hope International is an organization with a passion to help Holocaust Survivors, especially in Israel. We are based in the USA but are international in scope. Through partners and volunteers from around the world, AHI is visiting Holocaust Survivors to alleviate loneliness, evaluating and meeting their needs, renovating their homes, and counting them as friends. We are currently involved with Holocaust Survivors in 25 cities in Israel. After reading about our history and growth, we hope you will want to join us in this worthwhile endeavor.

Those of you who have been involved with us for awhile may have noticed our new logo.

This is a logo with purpose, Jew and Gentile together.

Trees represent “L’Chaim!”  “Life!” to those of Jewish heritage.  The olive tree in particular is mentioned in the scriptures, and is so prized it is against the law to cut down an olive tree without permission from the Israeli government.

Water is life to Gentile Believers, in particular “living” or moving water.  Also in the Jewish faith “living” water is required for their mikva for cleansing.

Our Survivors, when we first meet them are like the brown leaves on the tree.  Old, seemingly shriveled and dry, nearing the end of their life.

But when you combine the Living Water from the Gentile beliefs with the Tree of Life from the Jewish religion, and view leaves as the Survivors who came out of the death camps to help build the State of Israel- the water feeding the tree brings life to the leaves, the Survivors.

The Holocaust Survivors we met a few years ago now show signs of new life, new growth.  We at Abundant Hope International want to continue to bring life and love to them, offering the chance of new hope.

Last name: Rose

Mark RoseAuthor Mark Rose of the book "NOAH CODE" produced a well footnoted general treatment of the Biblical text, the Flood catastrophe and its effects on the geology of earth. This work summarizes the geological findings since BC to date. Includes definitions from the original Hebrew Scriptures regarding key elements lost to many modern biblicist's.

Noah code contains shocking evidence documenting dozens of sites around the world containing human remains and artifacts apparently buried in the Flood, overlooked by the literature and hidden from the public for decades. An outstanding reference guide and narrative.

Want to learn what Flying the wilds of the Alaskan Arctic was like,  this is your book!  True life recollections of a real Bush Pilot, hunter and trapper who lived this life for decades in the Great Land.  Stories of flying airplanes and long-range helicopter's to every corner of the State, ending an encounter with the Creator that changed the pilots life forever.  First in a series, Illustrated

Mark Rose' story:

"As a teen and stepson of a biologist in Alaska, I found myself immersed in the world of evolutionary thinking of the day.  Magazines like Nature, Scientific American and National Geographic sat around our living room table.  Geo's new television series had just come out, touting evolution with every episode.  Dean Kenyon's latest work; "Biochemical Predestination", was the rage of the day, proving the self-assembly of chemicals into amino acids. (Well, almost proving it; Kenyon seems to be venturing more into our camp).  Nuclear physicists had unlocked isotope clocks within the rocks, proving with atomic accuracy the Bible's inaccuracies. Usher being replaced with terms like "potassium/argon,"  "lead/lead" and such, all very scholarly, so who could argue with nuclear science? We had won a war with that stuff.  Even a watchmaker introduced the "Accutron", an electric watch as accurate as nuclear dating, or so claimed the TV adds.  Men were walking on the moon with this new science for heaven's sake, and with such an onslaught of "evidence", who could prove them wrong?   The "Jesus freaks" were just that, marked as fools while the "scientific" marched onward, holding Darwin out as their new God. The Bible is a myth they assured us, fitting for grey-haired grandmothers, used as quaint musty bookends. 

As all this was going on, paleontologists in Africa were unearthing parts of ape-men monthly it seemed. It was obvious that any day they would find "the missing link," and the anticipation of this certain event eventually substituted for facts.  Simply repeat the story enough and it becomes truth, and according to Miller with enough time even dead chemicals will spring to life. The textbooks were full of his laboratory tests and models, no other explanation offered or needed.  

As the entire weight of media, magazine and textbooks came to bear on the subject, how could a thinking person not get this picture?  It was obvious to our youthful minds that the churches had perpetrated a fraud, the "Opiate of the Masses" we were told, so how could one realistically consider such fairy tales of a God?  It seemed amazing to us, the Enlightened, that humanity had been baffooned so long. Television and movies chimed in with a flood of humanistic leading performances, mocking those of faith as backward know-nothings and making heroes of the godless, who always seemed to save the day, flaunting success and free sex, having a solution for everything.  As holders of these wise new truths we could create a great society, they told us, no longer constrained by the moral boundaries based on the existence of some imaginary God, this all to the horror of grandma who knew better all along.  

Opposition from credible sources were quickly silenced; simply replay the same lies over and over, do not bother with retractions, missing evidence was easily created with the brush of an illustrator and a few words. If an ape-man was needed, a few strokes of a creative artist with some scientific input and there he was.

As these concepts matured into our worldview, we swallowed the pill of evolutionary thought and were poisoned.  Many made serious life decisions based upon this ideology, any interest in the things of God evaporating.  I saw those of faith ridiculed and mocked in my circle, having little in hand to stop the onslaught among my peers.  The effects of all this influence goes on today, that generation now the educators, writers, media executives, judges, lawmakers and even Presidents of our time, the end result an utter dismantling of our society and the family unit, evolutionary thought now infiltrating into every level of science, education, law and philosophy.  We need to understand this nation is literally going to hell while on earth today.  Our jails are over full, divorce is rampant, drug use uncontrollable and as of this writing, 40% of new births in the US are from unwed mothers.  Ask any prison warden, 80% of the male inmates come from single parent homes, when you run those numbers we may as well build prison states, as 1000 acre compounds won't hold them all.  Clearly, the effects of our free lifestyle are now irreversible, the only answer left a wholesale return to God.

Back then I took the view we only live once and are nothing but "star stuff" Sagan told us, the life span of a solar system nothing more than a tick of the universal clock he says.  Our values were relative, and everyone knew overpopulation our biggest threat next to war, spare infants, spare cats; what was the difference, make space!  (I square off with this myth in the Human Origins post).  I faced life then with simple absolutes; It was me against the elements of Alaska, human effort vs the laws of physics and nature, all else is left to chance and fate, there is no God, time is endless and people insignificant.  We are left to this life and that’s it, survive with your brains and brawn then act a wise intellect in public.  What a hopeless delusion.  I became an egotistical, cold, self-centered person, thinking I was wise but terribly unfulfilled in many ways.  I knew secretly there was a big hole in my life, but what was wrong?  I couldn't find the answer.

All that changed one night on a flight gone wrong; at the crucial point I received help from neither chance nor my  every effort, but from an unknownelement; speaking to me and adding an hour of fuel to my tanks my last leg over water.  Safe on the ground I thought, "so gramma was right all along, there is something out there!"  After other near misses, (like a heli crash where my seat was crushed flat), I made the decision and turned my life over to God, a decision I've never regretted since.  After this incident my emptiness began to be filled and other conflicts in life began to make sense. There issomething bigger out there I now understood, despite losing so many friends in this country along the way, that chilled me to the idea of a loving God beforehand.  Angry about how I had been brainwashed by the system, I joined the effort to expose the lies and tell the other side of the story, so here you have this work.  

The topics addressed here summarize the major issues concerning the Bible, faith and evolution of our day.  It comes to you doing my humanly best to share these pertinent truth's with you and I will tell you Iv'e faced many skeptics on this journey and have never been disappointed.  The Bible is true, and you can depend upon it fully, no exceptions.

Some of the information is breaking news, like the MO-1 bacteria, recently discovered by a team at Osaka University to have a micro 24 gear planetary gearbox, synchronously driven by seven proton-powered motors complete with clutches, modulators and anti-skid sensors all in a single cell.  (As a professional helicopter pilot/technician who worked with planetary gear systems, the evolution of such technology is laughable).  Second, the recent un-finding of Dark Matter, touted for over 20 years as the undetected and unseen glue holding the Galaxies together, is now debunked.  You will find these and many other exciting revelations supporting a Biblical Worldview and Intelligent Design in these posts, including worldwide flood evidence from the Grand Canyon and more, completely refuting evolutionary theory at every point.  As appropriate, I included many references and links to help in your self-study this vital subject, so you can share with others.  If there is no reference too bad, it comes from one who's word is good and has seen what the other side has and found they have nothing.   

Much of this knowledge is little of my own.  I owe acknowledgements found in the footnotes, video links, lectures and those I worked with in the field over many years.  My personal observations, education in geology, (telling enough, two of my PhD professors converted to a catastrophic view of earth history while in school), and 30+ years experience working in mining around the globe.  Don't forget to enter your contact information, I will be giving away two new books about these topics, Genesis Alivethe book, and Last of the Long Hunters, this volume including true stories about my life and flying in the Arctic.

May God bless you in your quest for truth, may you have a renewed faith in the Creator and His written Word through these pages, 

Mark Rose

Susan Michael, Director of the US International Christian Embassy Jerusalem

ICEJ Mission Statement:

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem was established in 1980 in recognition of the biblical significance of all of Jerusalem and its unique connection with the Jewish people. Today, it represents millions of Christians, churches, and denominations to the nation and people of Israel. We recognize in the restoration of the State of Israel God's faithfulness to keep His ancient covenant with the Jewish people. 

ICEJ's main objectives are:

  • To stand with Israel in support and friendship;

  • To equip and teach the world wide Church regarding God's purposes with Israel and the nations of the Middle East;

  • To be an active voice of reconciliation between Jews, Christians, and Arabs, and to support the churches and congregations in the Holy Land.

From its head offices in Jerusalem, the ICEJ reaches out into more than 140 countries worldwide, with branch offices in over 80 nations.

Our Vision is:

  • To reach every segment of Israel’s society with a Christian testimony of comfort and love, and
  • To reach and actively represent to Israel the support of denominations, churches, and believers from every nation on earth.

About Susan Michael:
For more than thirty years, Susan Michael has pioneered the development of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem in the United States and around the world.

Susan’s involvement with the ICEJ began as a graduate student at Jerusalem University College in 1980, the same year that the Christian Embassy was first established. Upon completing her Masters degree in Judeo-Christian Studies she returned from Israel with a heart to further the Embassy’s mission among fellow Americans. After a season assisting the ministry’s international leadership to host a series of high profile pro-Israel conferences across the USA, Susan was asked to head-up the ICEJ’s newly-founded US Branch.

A graduate in Theology from Oral Roberts University, Susan is often called upon to address complex and sensitive issues such as anti-Semitism, Islam, Jewish-Christian relations and current events in the Middle East to a diverse range of audiences. Her experience working with Arabs, Jews and Christians from many national and denominational backgrounds has equipped Susan to handle delicate topics central to an understanding of Israel with extraordinary clarity and grace. In recent years she has pioneered a number of educational tools to enable other Christians to do the same, including the website and a series of highly accessible educational seminars.

Susan and her husband have lived and worked for many years in Washington D.C. where she has developed a close working relationship with the Israeli Embassy and strong connections with the US Jewish community at large. They currently reside in South Florida.

Endorsement from Dr. Jack Hayford:

Susan Michael is one of the most authentic, informed and gracious communicators I have met. I urge pastors and community leaders to schedule Susan: we need voices like hers who can provide a balanced, informative and inspiring clarity regarding Israel’s “present moment.”

Last name: Ward

Dr. Kelli Ward Arizona

After careful consideration and many long discussions with my family, friends, and supporters, I have decided to run again for the US Senate in the 2018 cycle.

Many of you know the successes that we enjoyed in our last race. Although we did not win, our team did an amazing job and I know that we will be able to build on our success and win in 2018. Here’s where we will start this time: 

  • We were able to earn 40% of the vote in a 4 way race.
  • More votes were cast for me on Election Day than for any other candidate, including Mr. McCain - including votes in Maricopa County.
  • We won 5 of 15 counties and had more votes outside of Maricopa and Pima Counties than McCain.
  • We raised more money last cycle than any other insurgent candidate.
  • Over 235,000 Arizona voters selected me to be their next US Senator.
  • We were outspent at a rate of about 10 to 1.

The thirst for small government, freedom, liberty, low taxes, repealing Obamacare, closing our borders, fixing our broken immigration system and protecting our Constitution and Bill of Rights will not disappear after this election. We need conservative champions, like me, to lead the fight.

You were instrumental in getting us to where we were last time and I need you to help me again. I am going against a guy that votes to confirm liberal judges, supports amnesty, open borders, horrible trade deals, and does not fight to defend the Constitution. He votes to fund Planned Parenthood and has supported budgets that have increased our national debt trillions of dollars. He claims one thing to voters and does the opposite in DC.

Without your help, we will not have the resources needed to take out a DC globalist insider masquerading as a liberty-loving Republican. I’m tired of the deception in DC – let’s make sure our voices are heard in 2018.

Failures of leadership have led to the problems we face in our state and our country: open borders, over 90 million Americans out of work, lost insurance and skyrocketing costs under ObamaCare, and a federal budget that only goes up. It’s time to change that.

Last name: Nigro

Authentic and transparent in the way she shares biblical truth, Jeanne Nigro has been leading believers to experience greater intimacy with God for over twenty years. It was her own personal crisis of fear of the end times, however, that led her to an even deeper understanding of how to grow in that intimacy and be a light for Him, even in the turbulent days in which we live. Through that experience, she was compelled to write, “UNSHAKEN: Standing Strong in Uncertain Times (Destiny Image - October, 2016). With a passion to liberate others from fear, frustration and apathy, Jeanne reveals the secret to standing strong in a fulfilling partnership with God, regardless of how uncertain the times.

Prior to founding Jeanne Nigro Ministries, Jeanne worked in the corporate world for seventeen years as an organizational change consultant. With an MBA from the University of Cincinnati, she brings a unique blend of corporate and ministry experience into her teachings, as well as expert insight on the Jewish roots of the Christian faith.

Through her ministry, Jeanne uncovers great truths from God’s Word that are rarely integrated and taught for increasing intimacy with God. Specifically, in three areas: healing stronghold barriers to intimacy, the Jewish roots of our faith, and end times theology. She is uniquely gifted in taking these topics often seen as complex, obscure, and unrelated and making them relevant, applicable and significant to our daily lives for standing strong and unshaken. Ultimately, Jeanne’s passion is to prepare us for Jesus’ return.

Jeanne is a regular blog contributor to the Messianic Times, the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America, Charisma News, and Christian Leadership Alliance and travels worldwide speaking at conferences, retreats, churches, congregations, and professional organizations. Jeanne is currently launching new television and radio broadcasts called Facets of the Stone, in which her unique and contemporary insights into the many facets of God’s heart awaken her audiences to a deeper understanding of who God is, how He sees them, what He wants to do in their lives, and how to have intimacy with Him — giving them strength for today in these uncertain times.

Jeanne, her husband Al, and daughter Charis reside in Plano, Texas.

Talking Points:

  • Empowering people to stand strong in these uncertain, turbulent times

  • Preparing believers spiritually for the end times, Jesus’ return, and the Millennium

  • Intimacy with God

  • Bringing Old Testament truths to life and relevance for today

  • Jewish roots of the faith

  • Healing Strongholds of the Heart

  • Freedom from fear, stress, frustration, apathy, and hopelessness of these times

  • Connecting believers to the many facets of God’s Heart

Last name: Matter

Serving & Honoring American Law Enforcement

The name of Blue Lives Matter originated from the incident in Ferguson, Missouri; however, the initiative has been a long fought battle in the history of law enforcement. In today's evolving society, an increasing number of citizens fail to accept responsibility for their actions and attempt to escape the consequences through outward blame. Due to the nature of the profession, law enforcement personnel are seen as easy targets and are consequently bullied by slander, illegitimate complaints, frivolous law suits, and physical threats. The echo of these negative highlights by the media and political figures have only further damaged community relations, which has greatly increased the inherent threat of the profession. We desire to change these wrongs to law enforcement and once again shed positive light on America's heroes to help boost morale and gain society's much needed support.

The goal of Blue Lives Matter is to honor and recognize the actions of law enforcement to strengthen the public support of an understandably naive society.

The members of our Armed Forces (many include law enforcement) have fought the battles overseas to give Americans the opportunity to live freely at home; however, criminals continue to prey on these rights for personal gain. Americans deserve the right to live their lives with the full protection of the laws but must realize that certain sacrifices should not be taken in vain. Law enforcement officers are also deserving citizens of these rights with personal lives, dreams, and families. While these heroes and their families accept an elevated inherent risk for minimal pay, they should not be expected to make such a great sacrifice without due recognition and support. Through strengthened support, law enforcement personnel will be provided a much needed boost in morale and can return full productivity back to the streets resulting in a safer America.

While still in law school, Jennifer wrote the first legal journal article providing the legal argument to label groups like ISIL as “genocidal” in nature and calling on the redefining of the term “terrorism” to promote International Courts with the justification to prosecute such groups and defeat the ideological war of Islamist extremism. Jennifer’s work has been published in the Brazilian Journal of International Law and the Journal of Global Justice and Public Policy, entitled, respectively, “Redefining Terrorism” and “Why the Combination of Political Lawfare and Universal Jurisdiction Will Destroy the Sovereignty of States.” She has championed the genocidal designation by ISIS since before it was established and used her expertise to aid members of U.S. Congress in unanimously passing the bipartisan Resolution of March 2016 that declared genocide against Christians and Yazidis in Iraq and Syria by the Islamic State. Jennifer continues to fight for human rights and advocates for minorities persecuted throughout the world.

Jennifer received a certification in Islamic Studies from Islamic Online University, headed by a radical cleric, to fully grasp the depth of Islamist ideologies and the subversion of basic freedoms. She received her BA in Political Science from Georgia State University and her JD from Regent University School of Law in Virginia Beach where she studied National Security and Constitutional Law from America’s most prestigious legal minds, including U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft and Litigator James Duane, author of “You Have the Right to Remain Innocent.”  Jennifer provides legal analysis for topics involving international criminal law, human rights, and analysis on legal matters as they relate to extremism from a non-partisan, fact-based standpoint. 

Jennifer is a former Miss Junior Florida and was 2nd Runner Up Miss Junior America in 2003.  She currently resides in Atlanta, GA with her dog, Grace, but travels extensively to meet with government officials, foreign attorneys, and  those oppressed due to extremist ideologies or wherever there may be a need for her expertise.  She is a debater, public speaker, and staunch advocate for truth and justice.

He attends Mission Church in Ventura.


The American Culture & Faith Institute (ACFI), a division of United in Purpose – Education, is a non-partisan, not-for-profit research organization that regularly conducts national surveys to gauge the sentiment and activity of politically conservative, spiritual active Christians in America. The information gained from these studies is used in various ways: to help UiP in its planning and outreach efforts, to support UiP’s organizational partners in their efforts to impact their circles of influence, to educate the public by sharing insights about conservatives through the media, and to educate Christian church leaders about the people they serve.

ACFI closely examines the heartbeat of two particular segments of the population through its branded tracking research: the RightView and C-3 research projects.



This is a longitudinal survey in which a panel of more than 25,000 adults who are politically conservative and spiritually active are studied. The primary group within this base is known as SAGE Cons –
Spiritually Active Governance Engaged Conservatives. This is the only tracking or longitudinal study of its kind existent in the United States. Each survey examines divergent aspects of American culture, faith, and politics.

ACFI regularly conducts new RightView surveys among this group of individuals, providing invaluable insight to UiP’s numerous organizational partners who are engaged in motivating, educating, and activating conservatives across America.



C-3 is an abbreviation for Conservative Clergy Canvass™. This is a longitudinal survey in which clergy from a panel of more than 5,000 theologically-conservative, senior pastors of Protestant churches are interviewed. In this research these pastors represent the estimated 90,000 to 105,000 Protestant churches in America that are theologically conservative – roughly one-third of the nation’s Protestant churches. This is the only tracking or longitudinal study of its kind existent in the United States. Each survey examines divergent aspects of American culture, faith, and politics from the pastors’ perspective.

ACFI regularly conducts surveys among this vital group of church leaders. The results of those studies are shared with UiP’s organizational partners to enhance their joint efforts at motivating, educating, and activating conservatives across America through their churches.

Jeff McManus Speaks

Jeff McManus grows things.  As the Director of Landscape Services at the University of Mississippi, he grows plants….he grows people….he grows ideas.  Jeff is a problem-solver, understanding that doing more with less is a 21st century mandate.

After coming to the University in 2000, Jeff took on the challenge of managing a multi-million dollar landscaping beautification implementation project.  Faced with a demand for excellence and high productivity, and a stagnant budget, Jeff knew that growing the people was critical to growing the plants. Through that experience, Jeff developed his approach to managing resources and developing personnel – his GROW-theory; a management and professional development  approach based in the belief that all humans either strive for or have within them the elements of Greatness, Resiliency, Opportunity and Wisdom – they just need a fertile environment to GROW.

Taking his grounds staff, affectionately known as “weeders”, and developing them into “leaders” has been a joyous challenge that reaped acres of rewards in the form of national recognition by the Princeton Review, PGMS, Newsweek and every faculty, staff, student and visitor who has walked onto the Ole Miss Campus.  Building on that momentum, Jeff has designed a professional development plan for his Weeders called Landscape University – a replicable training program that promotes the individual’s innate ability to GROW.

Jeff holds a Bachelor of Science in Landscape and Ornamental Horticulture from Auburn University and is a PGMS Certified Grounds manager, and Certified Arborist.  His message rings true for any industry leader or manager looking to GROW a high-performance and dedicated workforce.  Jeff has spoken at Caterpillar Inc, the Biltmore Estates, Leadercast, SRAPPA, Trent Lott Leadership Institute as well as the SEC Ole Miss Athletics.  He has also worked with Memphis University, the University of Tennessee, the University of Georgia and private firms in developing their own training programs.

Growing Weeders Into Leaders

Author Jeff McManus Growing Weeders into LeadersAt some point in this postmodern life, individual greatness has lost its appeal for many of us. It has been commodified and relegated to those who are measured by shortest/longest times, impressive distances, highest heights, lowest lows, medals won, honors given…and again…Aristotle and Nike got it right…GREATNESS is what we can DO…every day…without recognition or reward, but for the satisfaction that comes from meeting the challenge, creating a team, and overcoming the odds. And that is what Growing Weeders into Leadersis about.
