Guest Speakers

Jennie Hopper

Jennie Hopper grew up in England, studied in Scotland, and has served as a missionary in Central America, South America and now resides in North Carolina with her husband and two children.

As a practicing Marriage and Family Therapist she primarily sees couples in distress and seeks to help them move toward healing and reconciliation. In addition a BA in Communications Studies (from Queen’s Margaret's College in Edinburgh, Scotland) Jennie earned her Masters in Christian Counseling from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina. She holds two professional licenses and has received advanced training in couples’ therapy, gaining certification as an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist.

Jennie is passionate about strengthening bonds & attachments with God and with others. Her goal is to see both couples and individuals move into greater freedom through the therapeutic process and the transforming power of The Holy Spirit.

Mary Hess

A passionate lover of Jesus, Mary Hess has been married to her fantastic husband, Shannon, for almost 14 years. They have two beautiful daughters and a cute little chihuahua. Shannon and Mary are currently living in Waynesville, North Carolina where they are planting New Day Community Church.

As an overflow of her relationship with the Father, Mary uses the gifts He has given her to teach and preach in her local congregation and for special events. Through her obedience, many have been drawn into more intimate fellowship with the Father. Also, Mary’s writing gift touches many as she shares her heart openly on her blog. Her candid portrayal of her challenges, temporary defeats, and ultimate victories in Jesus will encourage you to whole-heartedly pursue Him, too! Mary holds a BS in Psychology with an emphasis on Christian counseling.

When she isn't ministering or writing, Mary can be found enjoying a cup of coffee (or 4) on her porch, enjoying the view of the mountains.
