This Year’s Speakers

Bill Ellieff

Bill Elliff is the founder and National Engage Pastor of The Summit Church in Little Rock, Arkansas. His passion is to see both genuine revival and methodological renewal in the church—both new wine and new wineskins.

He is a frequent conference speaker, writer, and consultant to churches drawing from his 50+ years of pastoring and revival ministry. Bill is also the Pastor/Church Director for OneCry! A Nationwide Call for Spiritual Awakening and a National Leader for the 6:4 Fellowship. He is the author of sixteen books and booklets and numerous articles.


He lives to faithfully and effectively communicate the whole counsel of God to as many people as possible through preaching, writing, church development, and personal equipping that they may become intimate, reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ.


Bill has been married to his wife, Holly, for over 48 years. Holly is a frequent women’s ministry speaker and leader who has been featured on many “Revive Our Hearts” Conferences and radio programs with Nancy DeMoss Wogelmuth. Bill and Holly have 8 children, all married and all serving the Lord. They have 25 grandchildren at present … and counting!

Bryan Loritts

Bryan Loritts (D.Min., Liberty University) is the Teaching Pastor at The Summit Church. An award-winning author of eight books, Dr. Loritts has spent the bulk of his ministry serving and resourcing the multiethnic church. He co-founded Fellowship Memphis in 2003 and serves as the President of The Kainos Movement, an organization committed to seeing the multiethnic church become the new normal.


His ministry takes him across the globe annually, as he speaks at conferences, churches, and retreats. Bryan has been a featured speaker for Catalyst and the Global Leadership Summit.


Currently, he serves on the board of Biola University and is a regular visiting professor at Grimke Seminary. He is also the Vice President of Regions for the Send Network.


He is the husband of Korie, and the father of Quentin, Myles, and Jaden.


Ian Hales is the founding pastor of Redemption Church. Ian grew up in the Durham region and, by God’s grace, was given the privilege to plant Redemption Church in 2010. God has done and continues to do great things in and through Redemption Church for the glory of His great name.


Ian’s greatest desire is to see God glorified through a passionate pursuit of Jesus Christ. His prayer is that God will use Redemption Church to be a pillar of truth in the Durham Region—that the preaching of God’s Word would be used to see lost people saved, saved people matured, and mature people multiplied.


Ian received his B.A. from York University and his Masters of Divinity from The Master’s Seminary. He is currently completing a DMin in Biblical Theology from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Aside from his 13 years of pulpit ministry, Ian has helped train church planters in preaching and has taught on preaching at various conferences over the years. Ian has a passion to see the church herald the Word of God through bold and compelling expository preaching.


Ian and his wife Sarah were married in 2003 and are parents to their three children Karis, Joshua and Caleb.

Robbie Symons

Robbie Symons is the founding Pastor of Hope Bible Church Oakville. His greatest passion is to see Jesus Christ glorified as people realize their potential only through His amazing power. With a Spirit-led resolve to proclaim the Word of God without apology, to passionately worship His only Son, and to believe firmly in the power of prayer, Jesus is building His Church.


Hope Oakville has experienced the power and grace of the Lord in its growth from a Bible study of 18 people in 2003 to over 4000 people today. God burdened Robbie and the church elders early on with the conviction to plant churches. Through much prayer, they have seen the birth of vibrant churches across Canada in Mississauga (2009), Niagara (2011), Toronto West (2013), Brantford (2014), Kelowna (2014) and Ottawa (2017).


In 2014 Live in the Light, a radio ministry of Hope Oakville, began airing Pastor Robbie’s messages in a 30-minute weekday program that plays in the greater Toronto area, Atlantic Canada, and greater Buffalo areas on JOY1250, WDCX, and Harvester Radio. Live in the Light exists to see radical transformation in God’s people through the revelation of God’s truth.


Robbie and his wife Gillian live in Burlington, Ontario, with their four children.
