Kathryn Crosby Sackett

PhotographKathy Sackett was born in Saskatchewan, and moved to Waverly, New York, when she was six years old. She enjoyed a lovely childhood if you don’t count being surrounded by four teasing brothers! At seventeen, Kathy became an American citizen, and she takes that responsibility seriously.

Kathy was blessed to attend Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, New York, for undergraduate studies in English and the University of Iowa for graduate studies in communication.  Her career in higher education has included positions in public relations, academic management, counseling, and teaching. In the secular arena, Kathy gives seminars on effective communication skills, career management, and topics in higher education.

For over thirty years, she has had the privilege of speaking at chapel programs, commencements, Christmas teas, church services, ladies’ luncheons, mother-daughter banquets, retreats, singles’ seminars, Valentine dinners, women’s conferences, youth events and more!  Whether the group size is 20 or 2,000, Kathy loves sharing God’s goodness and Biblical principles with people. This is all because a childhood friend courageously kept telling Kathy that God loved her and had a plan for her life.  The truth of those words finally broke through to her heart and she is eternally grateful!

God has also opened doors in ways Kathy never imagined and used her to teach beginning sign language from a worship arts perspective to children and adults and to direct sign language choirs.

She has a passion for singles’ ministry in particular, having served on the Leadership Committee of Greater Rochester Christian Singles for many years, then relocating and serving on the Leadership Team of Family Life Network’s SALSA, Salt and Light Single Adults.

The story of Kathy marrying at 42 is one of God’s faithfulness. She resides in Erin, New York, with her husband Brian and Sunny, a precious seven-year-old yellow Labrador retriever. They are members of a new church planting, Elmira Foursquare Church, where Kathy volunteers as the administrative assistant, ministers in sign language, and teaches Bible studies.

Dr. Bob Froese

As a Philadelphia Flyer goaltender, he holds a winning percentage of .737. Career highlights included playing on the NHL All Star Team, winning the William Jennings trophy, and shutting out the Russians for the Canadian World Championship team. Midway through his NHL career, Bob was traded to the New York Rangers, where he played for 4 seasons before becoming goaltender coach and player relations liaison. For five years, Bob worked in player development for New York Rangers and the New York Islanders, until God called him into full time ministry at Faith Fellowship Church, where he has served as senior pastor since 1998.

Since then God has given Bob grace to earn a Bachelor of Science in Religion (Liberty University), a Master of Arts in Religion (Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary), and a Ph.D. in Biblical Counseling (Trinity College of the Bible Theological Seminary). As a speaker, God has gifted Bob with the ability to touch hearts in practical and concrete ways, without wavering from the authority of God's Word. He addresses all topics relevant to the human condition, bringing the hope of Scripture to bear. Bob currently serves as pastor at Faith Fellowship Church in Clarence, NY.

Sherrie Holloway

PhotographSherrie Holloway shares, "By God's gracious choice I was born into a Christian home. We attended church regularly and both of my parents were actively involved. In my growing up years, I heard about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit regularly. The message of the Gospel was definitely something I heard. But one Sunday night there was a special music group at our church. It was during that service that I understood MY need for salvation—my sin and the need for a relationship with God. I accepted God's free gift of forgiveness through the blood of His Son, Jesus. Shortly after that I was baptized and have continued to deepen my relationship with Him through studying the Word, meditating, praying and being involved in my local community of believers, Summit Baptist Bible Church."

Sherrie is comfortable with any size group - small to hundreds, and has done many different sizes with both extremes. She speaks on many topics and a list of these topics can be found on her Website (listed below).
