Skye Jethani is an award-winning author and speaker. Raised in a religiously and ethnically diverse family, his curiosity about faith led him to study Comparative Religion at a state university before entering seminary and local pastoral ministry. A hunger for learning and writing eventually led him to numerous editorial and executive roles at Christianity Today, including Executive Editor of Leadership Journal and Senior Producer of This Is Our City, a multi-year, multi-city project telling the stories of Christians working for the flourishing of their communities. Skye has authored eleven books and writes WITH GOD DAILY, a daily digital devotional for people who hate devotionals. He speaks regularly throughout the U.S. and internationally to gatherings as diverse as the U.S. Naval Academy, the Chautauqua Institution, and the Q Culture Summit. He has been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, Relevant, and Religion News Service.
Skye and his wife, Amanda, have been friends since high school and currently live in Wheaton, Illinois, with their three children.
Phil Vischer made his first animated film when he was nine years old and by age fourteen was convinced he would be a filmmaker when he grew up. After a brief stint in Bible College, Phil struck out on his own, looking for a way to integrate his faith with his filmmaking. This quest led him to a tomato and a cucumber. The year was 1991, and Phil was a newly married 25 year-old with no financial backing and no idea how his vegetables would ever see the light of day. Today, more than 65 million VeggieTales videos have been purchased and Phil’s faith-filled stories can be found in 1/3 of all American homes with young children. Although Phil’s original company, Big Idea Productions, collapsed in bankruptcy in 2003, Phil continues some involvement with VeggieTales, while actively developing new ways to integrate faith and storytelling through series like What’s in the Bible? Phil captured the breathtaking rise and heartbreaking fall of Big Idea Productions in the book Me, Myself & Bob.
Phil lives with his wife Lisa (aka Junior Asparagus) and their three kids in West Chicago, Illinois.
