He has a pelvis made of iron—literally—after the great Jet Ski accident of 2006.
Happily, Pure Freedom’s director of ministries traded that Jet Ski in for a big boat.
Bob Gresh is the author of Who Moved The Goalpost? Seven Winning Strategies in
the Sexual Integrity Game Plan. He’s been on many national radio and television
programs including Focus on the Family, and Family Life Radio. On rare occasions,
the team talks Bob into joining them to teach at a Pure Freedom event. He’s a
dynamic, entertaining and humble speaker. Together, Bob and Dannah started Grace Prep High School in State College, PA. It’s a fun and academically rigorous school with lots of “Grace.” Check out

pf_0000_Stephanie-bio-picture-Jan-2013Stephanie Martinez

Stephanie was an avid penny collector.   When people heard the story of how she collected them to one day pay for her groom’s wedding band, they dumped their purses to add to her collection. She recently cashed in those pennies to prepare for her March 9th wedding.  She is a singer/songwriter/speaker with a passion to live in the every day reality of loving Jesus.  As the founder of Heart Exposed, a ministry through which she leads worship and trains other worship leaders to focus on reaching the heart of God, Stephanie is on the road nationally and internationally most of the year. Some of those days, she is with Dannah Gresh leading worship for the Pure Freedom teen event.  Come meet her.



pf_0003_IMG_0623Eileen King

If you book Dannah for an event or inquire about an interview, you’ll find Eileen on the other line of the phone. She has over two decades of event planning experience with the Outdoor Writer’s Association. Thankfully, she left that successful career to take care of just one writer: Dannah. Eileen is married to Russ and they have one adult son, Christian, who resides in Florida. So between her love of mowing her many acres in the summer and her love of visiting her son, she’s always tan. And always smiling.




pf_0004_good1Aleigha Cessna

This is the beautiful face behind all the Girl-to-Girl emails and phone calls, as well as the creator of monthly newsletters that come to your inbox. Aleigha has a dual degree in English and Classics and Ancient Mediterranean studies, which makes her a geek for ancient history. Being a brainiac does not keep her from her love of youth dystopia novels or getting her fingers in the dirt to grow anything from asparagus to zucchini.
