Keaton Hally M.A.

Although Keaton was converted to Christ as a young boy, for years he had unanswered questions about why evolution and the evidence he learned in science classes was not consistent with the Bible stories he heard in church. It wasn’t until his senior year of high school that he first heard a creation speaker explain how the geological evidence, dinosaurs, and biological complexity were completely consistent with the Bible’s historical account. To this day, Keaton has dedicated himself to not only get equipped with an in-depth knowledge about the crucial issues of creation, but has used that information to help others get answers for themselves.
After receiving a B.A. in Visual Communications from Judson University, Keaton worked as a Graphic Designer for a major Christian publication. Wanting to be more effective in reaching our culture with the Bible’s truth, Keaton also earned a Master’s degree in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. As a member of a local creation group in his home state of Illinois, Keaton gained valuable experience in communicating the relevance of the Genesis account of creation to the Gospel’s big picture.

Mel Ponder

Mel Ponder is an American politician who is a Republican member of the Florida House of Representatives. He was the mayor of Destin, Florida from 2014 to 2016.

Mel Ponder doesn’t just talk conservative values – he lives them in every walk of life. He’s lived them as a family man, a man of faith, a business executive and as Mayor of Destin. Mel helped institute the Destin Week of Blessings, an annual event that unites area pastors and churches. This effort has now spread to several other cities impacting their communities.
Mel started his own small business to train and support local marketplace and business leaders and individuals, as well as ministers and others of faith to make a difference in their communities. He also worked hard to become a leader in various industries including regionalization, small business ownership, food/hospitality, retail, sales, marketing, nonprofit, and the real estate finance industries. This experience helped him serve effectively as Mayor as he gained the values of leadership, making tough decisions, and taking responsibility.
Now Mel wants to bring his principles to the Florida House, where he will work to protect our conservative values and ensure they have a voice in Tallahassee!

Mel will be the Master of Ceremonies and a prayer leader at the Revival.
