John’s heart has always been turned towards the development of young people, so it is no wonder that God has seen fit to send John all over the world to speak and encourage kids to live for Christ and to fulfill their purpose through service to others.

I have seen the damage done by living for other people, instead of for God, and I want to help girls see that life is more than our outward appearance or other’s opinions. There is freedom in being vulnerable and sharing weaknesses, and I want girls to know that they are not alone on this journey.” Johnna graduated from Indiana University, has spoken at conferences for churches and youth organizations regarding purity, body image & eating disorders, relationships, and marriage.

Tina Marie Griffin

Event: Hollywood Exposed November 2011

1

“After living in Hollywood as an actress for nine years, God placed a burden on my heart for America’s youth. Many teens are living lifestyles that Hollywood promotes as “harmless” and suffering the consequences – sometimes deadly. For the past ten years I have been exposing the lies of pop-culture world-wide and challenge our next generation to serve God through missions. I want the youth to realize that their IDENTITY is not based on Hollywood, but in CHRIST! Our youth are starving for a purpose – to live out a vision larger than themselves!”
