memories from EMBRACE19

Michael Hines

Originally from England, Michael Hines first answered the call to full-time ministry while on honeymoon in Jerusalem in 2002 – at a time when the city was being rocked by a relentless wave of suicide bombings and terrorist attacks. After sensing the call of God to stay in the Middle East,  Michael and his new wife, Bonni, spent much of the next decade and a half serving with the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, living for five years in Israel before relocating to the US in 2007.

After many years ministering in churches across the US and leading numerous pastors’ trips to Israel, in 2018 they planted Foundations Church, an Open Bible church in Williamsburg, Virginiathat they still pastor.  Their heart is to raise up leaders who can hear the voice of God, minister to the broken, and teach the Bible faithfully. Michael and Bonni have four children, each born in Jerusalem, and currently live in Williamsburg.

Randall Bach

Randall Bach has served as president of Open Bible Churches since January 2012, but he has been a leader of influence and innovation in our Open Bible family since 1972, when he began serving as a faculty member and director of public relations at Open Bible College at the age of 22. At age 29, he became the president of the college. He has also served Open Bible as executive director of church ministries, as executive director of communication, as executive director of East Region, and as Open Bible’s vice president.

Randall earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Northern Iowa and his graduate degree from Regent University.

In August of 2021, Randall and his wife, Barbara, celebrated 50 years of marriage. They view ministry as their adventure together. Randall is honored to have this final opportunity to speak to the Open Bible family as president.

Jason Earls

Once voted Seattle’s Favorite Comedian, Jason Earls has also been featured on Focus On The Family’s Date Night Challenge, Trinity Broadcast Network, and the Date Night Comedy Tour. In addition, he was named ITM Live’s Best Comedian. He has been sought after to produce content for marriage and family events which has earned him the title, “Comedy Familiologist,” pointing back to his desire to connect with audiences from all walks of life. 

Jason has performed throughout the country and abroad, and when he’s not on stage, he’s most likely with his wife,Terri, at one of their amazing kid’s ridiculous sports events in his home city of Dallas, Texas.
