  • John R Gunn John R Gunn (1877 – 1956) was first a Baptist pastor and successful author. He then became a newspaper columnist whose daily messages inspired readers for over 36 years. After his death, letters to the editor requested that the columns continue, and thereafter these were reprinted daily for 15 more years. A short time later, his messages became radio scripts for the Presbyterian Church. In 1984, The Protestant Radio and Television Center of Atlanta, Georgia was awarded the Peabody Award for their Protestant Hour program, "Be Still and Know," which featured John R. Gunn's meditations. Those meditations continued for 14 years. Reverend Gunn’s work, written and audio, is still available at Day1, a ministry of The Alliance for Christian Media.

  • The Skit Guys The Skit Guys are Tommy Woodard and Eddie James, who have been best friends since high school. They fell in love with acting through their involvement in the school's theater productions, and discovered they had a knack for making people laugh. When Tommy invited Eddie to church, everything changed. With encouragement and guidance from their youth pastor, the guys started to write and perform skits for their youth group. No longer was it just about making people laugh-their skits now had a bigger purpose. Since their high-school days, they've been writing and performing hilarious and poignant skits live and on camera. Tommy and Eddie have traveled the world performing for families at events, churches, and conferences. Their SkitGuys.com website has grown into a treasured media resource for families, pastors and churches. Their numerous short films, skits, and scripts are used to reach families all over the world. When The Skit Guys aren't performing or shooting new short films, both Tommy and Eddie serve in their local churches, enjoy good food (especially pizza and fries!), and love life with their families.
