Lisa Adams

A Good God Gives Good Gifts (Matthew 7:7–11)

Lisa lives in the beautiful Roanoke Valley of Virginia with her husband, Ben, their three children—David (14), Elanor (11), and Brennan (8)—and their Cavapoo puppy, Cosmo. She graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary with a Master of Arts in Christian Education in May 2023, and now serves as Director of Christian Education at Bonsack Baptist Church. She is passionate about intersecting God’s Word and God’s people, helping people grow in relationship with God and others as they study the Bible in community. She also enjoys reading a good book over a cup of tea or coffee, conversations with friends, and relaxing outdoors. Her message is born out of a series of disappointments through which she rediscovered God’s goodness.

Kabwe earned her Ph.D. in Social Statistics from the University of Southampton, UK, and previously taught undergraduate studies at the University of Zambia.

Born in Zambia, she has resided in Canada for the past 17 years. She lives with her best friend and husband of 25 years, Dr. Sebastian Benaya, along with their two daughters—Mwape (21) and Tasheni (17)—and a son, Chibale (15).

Kristi Briggs

You are Called to Build the Church (1 Peter 2:4–9)

A Texan most of her life, Kristi and her husband of 30 years raised four children and are now expecting their first grandbaby. For much of her adult life, she stayed home with her children, led Bible studies, and volunteered in different ministries. She has published five Bible studies, currently teaches her adult community group, mentors at the local pregnancy center, and speaks at women's events. Kristi has loved her seminary journey and is a bit bittersweet about her upcoming graduation this May.
