All our speakers are live and in person for you to visit with during the breaks. This year’s speakers include:
Jason Pratt is an active duty officer in the U.S. Navy as an Aerospace Engineering Duty Officer with the following credentials: Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University, Masters of Science in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, graduate of the United States Naval Test Pilot School, member of the Navy’s Space Cadre and Navy selectee for astronaut candidacy in 2013.
As an active duty member of the Navy, Jason takes his oath of office seriously and also must give a disclaimer that the views he shares when speaking on behalf of The Anvil Ministry, the views expressed are entirely his own and do not reflect the views of the United States Navy or Federal Government.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the simplicity of the Gospel of saving grace in Jesus Christ, but Jason’s experience and knowledge does make him uniquely qualified to speak on both biblical and scientific matters.
As a Naval Flight Officer and a graduate of the United States Naval Test Pilot School, Jason has flown over thirty types of fixed wing, rotary wing and glider aircraft including: F-14 Tomcat, F/A-18F Super Hornet, F-15E Strike Eagle, F-16D Fighting Falcon, T-38 Talon, UH-1 Huey, B-25 Mitchell, and U-6A DeHavilland Beaver.
As a former and permanently backslidden atheist Jason had placed his hope in his knowledge and achievements, but when Christ saved him he found the freedom of new life that surpasses the thrill and excitement of any fighter jet he’s ever flown. His testimony is one of turning from his own abilities and confidence in himself, and putting his trust and faith in Jesus Christ alone and certainty of the written, revealed and living Word.
Jason received his undergraduate degree at Penn State University, where he met his wife Sherri. The Pratts have three children, and are currently stationed in southern California. Jason enjoys snow skiing, mountain biking/cycling, off-road/jeeping, and playing with his children.
Jason was a self proclaimed and devout atheist until the age of 26. He now devotes as much time as possible to the Lord’s service, by assisting the chaplains in his commands, volunteering at his church and speaking at churches and Christian conferences, encouraging believers to be informed by Scripture, bold in their faith and courageous in witnessing
Philip De Courcy
Philip De Courcy is the senior pastor of Kindred Community Church in Anaheim Hills, California, and speaker on the daily radio program, Know The Truth.
Philip was born in Belfast, Ireland, to Christian parents who instilled in him a love for the Lord, Jesus Christ. At sixteen years of age, Philip trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior.
Growing up in a neighborhood where civil tension was commonplace, many of Philip’s friends became involved in acts of terrorism. As a result, Philip decided to serve as a part-time reserve police officer in the Royal Ulster Constabulary in North Belfast. Although some of his comrades were injured and even killed during that six-year period, Philip was unharmed. To this day, he believes God used this faith-building season to prepare him for pastoral ministry.
Philip had already begun his primary career as an engineer in the aircraft industry when he sensed God’s calling to enter the Irish Baptist College for training in ministry. While attending college, Philip met his life-partner, June, a young girl from Glasgow, Scotland, who was training at the Whitfield College of the Bible in Northern Ireland. Philip and June were married in Scotland, kilt and all, in 1987. After graduation, Philip spent six years shepherding the congregation of Carr Baptist Church in Lisburn, a suburb of Belfast.
In 1994, burdened by a renewed desire to gain more preparation for ministry, and with the encouragement of his friend, John MacArthur, Philip enrolled in The Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, California. His association with The Master’s Seminary and College continues to this day as he serves on the Board of Directors.
After shepherding churches in southern California and central Ohio, in 2007 Philip relocated his family to Anaheim Hills, California, to begin his current ministry as senior pastor at Kindred Community Church.
The daily radio broadcast, Know The Truth, was launched in March 2010, on three local radio stations in southern California. The program features Philip’s expository Bible teaching and is hosted by broadcast veteran, Wayne Shepherd.
Philip and June have three grown daughters and one son-in law.

A Christian pastor and former Muslim, Shahram Hadian travels around the nation speaking on critical issues facing us as Americans.
Shahram was born in Iran in 1971. His father was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army, and his mom was an elementary school teacher.
Shahram’s parents had a sense of urgency to leave Iran as soon as possible and in December of 1978, with nothing but their suitcases, moved to America to seek freedom.
Shahram experienced a transformational life change 15 years ago when he committed his life to Jesus Christ.
When he became a Christian, he immediately faced persecution and disapproval from his family and culture. According to the teachings of Islam, his conversion means that he is an “apostate” and deserves to be killed.
In spite of this opposition, Shahram persevered, enrolled in Bible College, and has been a Christian pastor for the last ten years. He graduated from Puget Sound Christian College with a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies and Christian Ministry.
