Retreat Speakers

Bucky and Stacey Kennedy - Keynote

Bucky Kennedy entered the pastorate in 1983 and has devoted his life to ministry at the global, national, state and local levels.

In 2016, God led Bucky to step out of his role as senior pastor and serve the local church in a different capacity, and after much prayer and counsel, Bucky Kennedy Ministries (BKM) was founded. Through this evangelical ministry, Bucky travels to churches and local organizations and participates in events, conferences and revivals.

Working with couples is an important part of BKM. For over 30 years, Bucky and Stacey have helped to encourage and strengthen marriages – whether newlyweds or couples celebrating 60 years together!

Dave and Kelly Harms - Financial Coaches

Dave and Kelly Harms became financial coaches 21 years ago. During this time, they’ve helped hundreds of people across the country become debt-free and financially secure for the future. They have also been guest speakers in several schools, most recently teaching classes on financial principles to the math students at Buford High School. Kelly comes from a football family and through the coaching career of her brother at Navy, she has seen firsthand the many challenges that coaching families face. Kelly now serves on the FCA Coaches’ Wives Ministry board in Gwinnett, and Kelly and Dave are both passionate about helping coaching couples win financially.

Ryan Brooks - Worship Leader

Ryan Brooks has been singing and leading worship for community events and Graystone Church for over 15 years. He’s been married for 13 years, and has three kids who are involved in the Multisport Explosion triathlon team. Ryan currently serves as the PA announcer for Archer High School, and is a former football and baseball player from Shiloh High School. He believes that his time as an athlete taught him the importance of teamwork and working together to achieve a common goal, and he applies those lessons to how Christians should live today.

Lee McBride - Comedian

Lee McBride travels the country as a comedian, storyteller, evangelist, and preacher. Lee has a great way of telling real life stories and teaching important truths while using humor to truly connect with people.

Lee and his beautiful wife Wendy founded Hidden Hook Ministries in May of 2004. Lee and Wendy have two incredible children, Maddison and Garrett. Lee speaks more than 100 times a year at outdoor events, wild game suppers, corporate events, youth camps, conventions, parties, fundraisers, banquets, and churches.


Jason Lester - Emcee

Jason serves as the Multi-Area Director for North Georgia FCA which includes 50 counties and close to 70 FCA staff. Jason was a teacher and a high school football coach in Hall County for 13 years before being called into the ministry in March of 2006. Soon after, he became the new FCA Area Representative for Gainesville and Hall County. Under his leadership, Gainesville/Hall County FCA grew from 1 missionary to 8 and now serves 4 counties as Greater Hall FCA.
