With the increase in technology, our societies have become increasingly socially isolated. Join Justin and Patrick as they share stories and observations on the impact healthy relationships lead to community, and how a healthy community can take you places you never thought possible.

Many thought they were foolish for attempting to walk 500 miles along the Camino de Santiago with Justin living life from a wheelchair. Some even told them they couldn’t accomplish it. For Justin and Patrick, the trek was something they had to do. Knowing full well that they could not be successful on their own, they set out with one wheelchair and two backpacks. Their faith was rewarded as they navigated the vast terrain of Spain, and they continue to take each step of life in faith. Join them as they explore moving from a posture of fear to standing triumphant in faith.

Jessica Buchanan (Exclusively WSB)

Jessica Buchanan shares her story of the impossible odds facing her during her 93 days of captivity by Somali land pirates and her determination and efforts to survive the harrowing and most painful experience of her life.   In sharing her story with audiences she provides to use in everyday life to help find strength in any situation or challenge. They will be surprised to find that you can scrape out just enough to get through that day. It may not be more than enough—but just enough has got to be ok, and as Buchanan experienced day after day after day—just enough will do just fine.

Doro Bush Koch (Exclusively WSB)

“A daughter,” Doro Bush Koch writes in her New York Times best-selling book My Father, The President, “may not have either the expertise or objectivity of a historian...but a historian doesn’t know a father the way his daughter does.” In this highly singular, personal perspective of her presidential father, George Herbert Walker Bush, Bush Koch speaks about his leadership qualities that contributed to his success in the political arena: his enduring ability to lead during times of strife, the humility and modesty that drew loyalty from people of all walks of life (including world leaders and former political foes) and the optimism that fueled his perspective on his country and the people in it. With humorous and moving anecdotes, Bush Koch pulls back the curtain on a richly layered life guided by family, faith and friendship.

Dr. Sampson Davis strongly believes we all have a dream. But what happens when the dream is interrupted or comes to a halt. How does one bounce back? How does one believe it is possible to achieve the unimaginable? In this speech, Dr. Davis will inspire all to remain vigilant in the pursuit of their dreams. Giving up is not an option. Work with what you have in place and believe you can make it happen. Dr. Davis will share his obstacles and pitfalls and how he never allowed his dream to be deferred even when faced with sure defeat. He will share the struggles he faced along the way. A college professor once told him to switch majors and that he wasn’t cut out to be a doctor. He dealt with personal tragedies in his family, from addiction to watching his sister lose her life to a health battle. Dr. Davis remained firm in knowing he could achieve success and it was his sister’s fight for life that inspired him to keep pushing.

Through many hardships and tribulations, Sgt. Israel "DT" Del Toro’s life has been defined by absolute devotion to family. From an early age, he was thrust into the role of provider for his four siblings. He was 12 when his father died of a heart attack, and a short time later his mother was killed by a drunk driver. As the oldest of four children, and just a teenager, Israel became the provider for his family. “The last thing he ever told me was promise you’ll always take care of your family,” Del Toro said of his father. 

That promise, echoed in another he made his son – that he would never have to grow up without a father – got him through many hard days filled with surgeries, skin grafts and grueling physical therapy. Once given a 15 percent chance of survival, he's gone on to not only re-enlist in the Air Force, but also set records and win a gold medal at the 2016 Invictus Games.  DT has taken the lessons he learned through hardship and recovery and now finds purpose sharing his story and wisdom with audiences around the country in the hopes of helping others find the light in the darkness.

The former director of President Obama’s Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, Joshua DuBois, shares with audiences the most effective approaches for nonprofits, universities and other entities that want to impact the communities around them, with a focus on faith-based and community-led social service.

How can people live their faiths publicly without trampling on the rights of others? What is the boundary between religious expression and personal freedom? As director of President Obama’s faith-based initiative and author of the best-selling book, The President's Devotional, Joshua DuBois gives audiences an update and path forward on religious expression in American public life.

Tony Dungy (Exclusively WSB)

Tony Dungy’s life is informed by an unswerving dedication to his faith. Dungy shares with audiences his understanding of how community service, sacrifice and commitment—both on the field and off—result in successes that don’t always end up in box scores.
