Earl C. Wallace, Author, Consultant, & Trainer
Earl is the pastor of Liberty Christian Fellowship Church, which developed from evangelism after God showed him that America is making the same mistakes Israel made as stated in Judges 2:10 “And there arose another generation after them (Joshua and his generation) who did not know the LORD or the work that he had done for Israel.” God showed Earl the history of how He divinely inspired men to seek the rights and freedoms expressed through the Ten Commandments, which America’s Founding Fathers realized are God’s way of saying we each have a right to do as commanded in 1-4 & 5, and we each have a right not to have Commandments 6-10 perpetrated against us. This application of Christianity to civic life made America a peaceful and stable society, ripe for the Great Awakening, and saw Christianity spread throughout our land.
As Earl began teaching the results of this research he called “The Biblical Basis of the Bill of Rights” (3-BR), in firehouses and libraries, people came to Christ, and others rededicated their lives to the Lord. Earl started Bible studies with these converts and they formed Liberty Christian Fellowship Church. LCF uses a “whole passage” method of Bible teaching to ensure we get God’s full and complete mindset on each topic within every particular passage. This delves deeper than politically correct topical sermons to show how all God’s word applies to every aspect of life.
Pastor Earl teaches each summer at Camp Constitution, in Rindge NH, where in addition to the 3-BR program, he teaches other topics that are part of a book he is completing. Mr. Wallace wrote The Three-Dimensional Leader: Negotiating Your Mission, Resources and Context, which has been endorsed by three other world-renowned “leadership gurus.” Earl has taught 3-D MRC Leadership throughout America, and in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.★

Tom DeWeese, American Policy Center, Founder
Tom DeWeese is one of the original pioneers in the property rights movement to speak out about the dangers of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development. Throughout the early 2000’s Tom joined with the late Henry Lamb to sponsor ten national conferences under the Freedom 21 banner, teaching more Americans to speak out about this threat.
Today, Tom travels the nation, speaking to property rights groups, TEA Party gatherings, political conventions, and gatherings, large and small, of concerned citizens.
Tom is an inspiring speaker. “Passion” is the word most often used to describe his talks. He fully understands Agenda 21 and its true goals, and he is able to explain this very complicated issue in a simple and easy to understand manner. After his talks, Tom often hears members of his audience say they had never fully understood the issue until they heard Tom explain it.
In addition, Tom DeWeese has spent considerable time over the past few years designing and perfecting new approaches and tools for activists to use in their local fights to stop Agenda 21. As he uses audience participation in teaching these new tactics, those attending have a renewed energy for their local efforts. Bring Tom DeWeese to your community, special event or convention to educate, motivate and begin the vital effort to stop Agenda 21 in your area.★

Dr. Punyamurtula S. Kishore
Dr. Kishore has been a practicing public health scientist for over 30 years. He began his medical career as a primary care / family practice physician and then moved into a position as the Medical Director of the Washingtonian Center for Addictions, the first organization in the U.S. to recognize addiction as a disease.
Their philosophy was an early precursor to the AA or 12-step program movement. Kishore has been a member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine(ASAM) since 1986 and has helped treat more than 200,000 addicted individuals. In 2010 Dr. Kishore earned the Prestigious Distinction as a Distinguished Fellow of the American Society of Addiction Medicine, a title that is only granted every other year to select ASAM physician members for their significant contributions to the Society and to the field of addiction medicine.
Dr. Kishore treats addicts with his ‘sobriety maintenance’ method. This unique health model stresses the prescription of non-toxic substances, provides patients with coping skills they need to remain sober and tailors treatment to specific medical conditions.
Kishore also administers “de-addiction” treatment, a process that treats emotional addiction as well as the physical addiction. Patients have access to home detoxification, an inexpensive and more effective option to in-patient care which allows them to maintain their dignity while learning how to cope with the temptations found in their own environments.
In 1993, Kishore founded National Library of Addictions in Brookline, Massachusetts. To support work in addictions treatment, the Library is designed to provide a non-profit structure for addiction professionals to exchanges ideas and to further the development of treatment methodologies.
He was honored by the Boston Celtics with a “Heroes Among Us” award, given to those who make a significant impact on the lives of others. Kishore is also the recipient of a national Compassionate Caregiver Award, Honorable Mention, from the Schwartz Foundation.
Kishore served as a faculty member of Harvard and as an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts. Currently, he serves as the Assistant Professor of Business Administration at Fitchburg State University. He holds his Master’s Degree in Public Health from Harvard School of Public Health, in addition to Certificates in Forensic Psychology from Bridgewater State University. Dr. Kishore currently serves as the Minister of Health and Healing for various organizations.★
