Rick Wertz

Founder, Faithful Fathering
Rick Wertz is founder of Faithful Fathering which is an organization that encourages and equips dads to be faithful fathers. A faithful father prioritizes his physical presence, is engaged emotionally and leads spiritually by example.

Faithful Fathering works primarily through the Church, across all denominational lines. The vision is to energize dads to be engaged in raising a godly generation. This is realized through the four-point strategy to ILLUMINATE, EDUCATE, CONNECT & LEAD men on the fathering front.
Rick will be leading a breakout equipping us dads to be the father God intended.

Josh Proctor

Founder Caleb Micah Ministries
Josh was set free from porn addiction several years ago, and he felt called to help others find truth so they can walk in freedom. A lot of the time, pornography is viewed in secret (or in the dark). For healing and cleansing to take place from the chains of pornography, there can’t be secrets (things need to be in the light). He is also passionate about helping men be released from shame and throw off the things that bind us. Josh is married to Kelly, and they have 8 children (5 girls, 3 boys).
Josh will be leading a breakout helping men to identify and equipping us through his story to rise and return to the Father, running from shame.
