Chris Gillespie

From one t-shirt to the largest ministry for endurance athletes in the world – Chris Gillespie calls TEAM 413 a miracle of God's grace. In 2003 Gillespie founded the non-profit ministry inspired by God's calling in his life.

Chris has done much in his 33-year career as a certified athletic trainer. He served in many capacities in sports medicine at Samford University from 1982-2013. He retired from the Birmingham, Alabama institution in July 2013 and spent one year as Director of Athletic Training Administration & Mentoring at the University of Georgia where he was responsible for special projects as well as rendering sports medicine care to UGA’s athletes. He was inducted into the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Hall of Fame in 2012.

Although Chris spoke on sports medicine topics for many years, he has also shared his story of God's grace in his life with thousands of people from coast to coast. His presentations are well received in churches, schools, businesses and corporations. His story has no boundaries regardless of age or cultural background. Strength, perseverance, persistence, and passion are the common threads that weave the powerful, motivating message of Chris Gillespie.

Chris’s story is one that will uplift your spirit and touch your heart. He has been called “God’s personal running messenger.” Olympian and world renown running coach, Jeff Galloway stated, “Chris Gillespie is an inspiring person who has not allowed challenges keep him from achieving goals that only a few runners have achieved. He inspires others to improve the quality of their lives!”

Mark and Brenda Smith

Mark Smith’s "One Last Hurrah" is a true story that needs to be told!

God has rebuilt Mark's life with his wife, Brenda, of 22 years. Having never thought he was worthy of being a father, Mark and Brenda have been blessed with three wonderful kids. Mark was diagnosed to lose his ability to walk by age 18. He not only beat the odds, but was invited to Spring Training with several Major League clubs and ended up traveling the U.S. working for Ted Turner's World Championship Wrestling.

Brenda has been a Children's Minister for almost 15 years and also loves to lead Women's Bible studies. She has also been a worship leader for Women's Ministry Events. She enjoys singing Contemporary and Southern Gospel music.
"DON'T GIVE UP!" is a message that Mark and Brenda are called to share with America. They were both the products of broken homes, but have been led to become Foster Parents to teens who share the same story and many worse.
