Nicole C Mullen.jpg

Grammy-nominated and multiple Dove award-winning singer and  songwriter, Nicole C. Mullen, brings sincerity, artistry and vulnerability to her music and speaking engagements worldwide.

Often infusing scripture when  writing  songs, Nicole poignantly portrays God’s redemption and unfailing love. Emerging from a difficult divorce, Nicole experienced that love that carried her through a long “night season,” bringing healing, empowerment and encouragement.

Lou Engle invited her to sing “Arise” at The Call/Rise Up held in Washington, D.C., where thousands of women gathered and were encouraged to rise up as “Esthers” on behalf of the next generation. Nicole founded Baby Girls Club to mentor girls in the United States, Belize, Zambia and other countries. Additionally, Nicole frequently graces the stage at Billy Graham and Women of Faith events.

Nicole’s seven Gospel Music Association Dove Awards  include two Female Vocalist  of the Year honors and Song of the Year for “Redeemer” and “On My Knees.”

Most recently, Nicole and Kathie Lee Gifford collaborated to produce a powerful 10-minute oratorio filmed in Israel, “The God Who Sees,” www.godwhosees.com. Nicole’s graceful choreography, powerful narrative and anointed voice resonate throughout.

Nicole passionately pursues and embraces  her many roles, including mother, singer, song- writer, speaker,  successful businesswoman and mentor.

Jackie and Steve Green

Partnering in many noble business and ministry endeavors, Jackie and Steve Green value most their partnership in marriage, parenting and now grandparenting. Faith, family and free enterprise are at the center of all they do.

Jackie relishes her roles as wife, mother to six, mother-in-law and “Gigi” to six grandchildren. High school sweethearts, Jackie and Steve celebrate more than 30 years of marriage.

Steve serves as President of Hobby Lobby, which was founded in 1972 with a mere 300 square feet of retail space. Today, Hobby Lobby employs approximately 41,000 people and operates more than 850 stores in 47 states. Sales in 2018 topped $5 billion. Steve’s parents and siblings remain active in the business.

Jackie, an adoptive mom, served on the advisory board of a pregnancy resource center, worked with her family in mission endeavors worldwide and assisted agencies in making adoption financially possible.

Jackie is co-author of two books, the first with Steve, This Dangerous Book (Zondervan), and the second with her daughter, Only One Life. Steve has written three books and was presented with an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity Degree by Gordon- Conwell Theological Seminary and an Honorary Doctorate of Biblical Literature from Mid-American Christian University.

In 2009, the Green family purchased their first biblical artifact and has since acquired tens of thousands of items that comprise the Green Collection, currently on loan to the Museum of the Bible, which was co-founded by Steve and Jackie and opened in 2017. Among the world’s newest and largest private collections of rare biblical texts and artifacts, items from the collection have been displayed at the Vatican in Rome, as well as in Cuba and Israel. Steve serves as Chairman of the Board of the Museum of the Bible.

Anne and Norm Miller

From humble beginnings as a traveling salesman for the company, Norm Miller worked his way through the ranks to become Chairman of Interstate Batteries, which is now the number one battery sales company in the United States. His success comes with Anne’s partnership in their 56-year marriage.

Norm has been involved with e3 Partners for more than 25 years. After e3 Partners and Norm met, they decided on the I Am Second Campaign (God is first, I am second). Today, I Am Second is seen in over 212 countries with over 80 million views.

Anne has traveled to 25 countries planting churches, showing the JESUS Film and knocking on doors to share the gospel. Seeing the effects of poverty, Anne enlisted friends in 1995 to start Women of Vision, serving and raising funds for World Vision.

In Dallas, Anne started a food distribution ministry for foreign students at Dallas Theological Seminary, as well as engaged in prison ministry, hospital volunteering and ministering at an inner-city school. Anne’s recent years have focused on studying and teaching the Word, with a Bible study she started in her 30s, continuing for the past 40 years.

Norm is a board member at Dallas Theological Seminary, United World Mission/Overseas Council and BEE World.

Anne and Norm delight in their growing family of two children and their spouses, five grandchildren and a great grandson.
