Special Guest Bios

7eventh Time Down

The Kentucky-bred foursome grew up playing music together, - Howard (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Cliff Williams (bass), Eric Van Zant (lead guitar) and Austin Miller (drums). For 7eventh Time Down, every song is an opportunity for ministry. The band has toured with a long list of impressive artists, including Newsboys, for King & Country, KJ-52, Manafest, Fireflight and Stellar Kart, among others, and was recently a featured artist on Air 1’s popular "Club Awesome Tour." Logging nearly 100 shows a year, the band members are true road warriors.

Danny Bennett

Danny is the pastor of Hope Church in Santa Cruz, CA. He and his wife Jenny pastored youth for thirteen years before starting Hope six years ago out of their living room. It is now a thriving community where every week lives are being transformed and people are opening their lives to Jesus. The heartbeat of the church is to help people find and follow Jesus in a "no perfect people, come as you are" atmosphere. Hope Church is also home to Skate Church offering outreach to 1-12th graders throughout the Santa Cruz area.

Brian Jackson

He started Church on the Beach, a non-denominational church service on Capitola Beach that runs through the summer months. It's unique location ministers to tourists, non-believers, and Santa Cruz County locals.

Brian Jackson
