Ben Fitzgerald is a passionate lover of Jesus and the Leader of Awakening Australia, Awakening Europe and GODfest Ministries. He spends a lot of his time travelling abroad as an evangelist. Originally from Australia, he met Jesus in an encounter that deeply changed him late in 2002 whilst he was dealing drugs. Since then Ben has lived hungry for one thing, to show the world Jesus in his everyday life and to take the good news of the Kingdom to the nations. In Galatians 5:1 it says “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free” and in line with that mission he loves to help people live in God’s fullness of freedom and identity.

Daniel Hagen is an Aussie Pastor & Singer/Songwriter on a mission to see 100,000 souls saved in 2018! Daniel used to be the lead singer of Aussie band, “The Hollow”. After he became a born-again Christian, his songs began to take on themes reflecting his faith. Although at the time, The Hollow had been signed up to a six-figure recording deal, he was told by one of the recording label’s managers that, “This industry is full of drug dealers and pimps”, and, “…you need to stop talking about Jesus and stop singing about Jesus if you want any more money invested into the band”. After this, Hagen left The Hollow, and began songwriting and performing worship music in churches and Christian events in Australia and other countries. Daniel has also performed at the Awakening Europe event, televised by GOD TV across Scandinavia, alongside UK artist and former Delirious? frontman Martin Smith.

Mike Gore is the CEO for Open Doors Australia. Mike has had extensive field experience – from being chased by the secret police in North Africa, to being in lock down in a hotel to avoid being kidnapped for ransom. He has met with and ministered to secret believers in house churches and smuggled Bibles to Muslim background believers in restricted countries. Through all of these experiences, Mike has gained a profound passion for people and telling the story of the persecuted church. He firmly believes that, as we hear stories of courage and passion from our brothers and sisters, our personal faith and the spiritual temperature of a country can be radically transformed. Returning from a trip to Iraq in 2015, Mike felt convicted that caring for the persecuted church should be part of the DNA of every Christian. He’s passionate about sharing stories of the church living in persecution with Christians in Australia, so that they would know and care for the global body of Christ. www.opendoors.org.au
