Evangelist Neal Hatfield is a powerful speaker and carries a special burden for young people. Many thousands of people have been led to Christ through Neal’s preaching.  He holds a special passion to raise up men and boys to be warriors for Jesus Christ. Neal preaches about thirty revivals a year. When he is not traveling to hold revivals, crusades, or special events, he and his wife Sue co-direct the expansion and operations of Uplands Reach Conference Center, which they founded in 1988 for the purpose of leading people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and encouraging them to grow in spiritual maturity and service for Jesus Christ in their local churches. The Hatfield’s are graduates of Heritage College in Orlando, Florida. In May 2013, Foothills Christian College and Seminary honored Neal with a Doctorate of Divinity.

Logan and Joanna Hallock

Directors of 1Champion – https://www.1champion.org

  Logan and Joanna are a dynamic combination who have a passion and vision to reach, train, and send out Champion Leaders for Christ. They aim to do this by providing premier sports camps, clinics, individual training and tournaments. Through these events, our goal is to build young champions spiritually and physically by enabling them through the Word of God to challenge and impact this nation. We believe in the youth of America and know they desperately need a radical encounter with Christ. Our goal at 1Champion is to reach athletes with the Gospel from every state in the United States. We need your help! Your monthly support of 1Champion is critical in order for us to reach this generation for Christ!   Logan is a former quarterback and receiver at Appalachian State University. In 2014, Scott Satterfield, the Head Coach at App State, said this about him, “Logan is one of the team’s most respected leaders, and he serves as a backup quarterback and perhaps more importantly a coach and mentor to the Mountaineers’ young signal-callers. He performed at a high level when pressed into action at quarterback and is also the holder on place kicks, a role that he has performed nearly flawlessly for much of the last three seasons.” Logan lead the team Bible study and was the spiritual leader the last 3 years of his college career. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association interviewed Logan about his spiritual leadership on the team. The article Don’t Pass on Christ states, “Hallock stresses how important it is for college athletes to let Christ “be No. 1.” He saw over 25 of his teammates accept Jesus Christ as their Savior while playing at App State.  Logan played at App State from 2010 to 2014. He holds the all-time record at App State & the Southern Conference for the highest completion percentage in a game. He went 20-21 (95%) against rival Western Carolina. He now serves alongside Joanna as the Directors of 1Champion, a sports-based ministry that puts camps & clinics on across the country. Joanna has a heart for young girls and loves using her passion for horses to reach young girls. She graduated from Piedmont University with her degree in Christian Ministries in 2013. Joanna’s relentless pursuit for Christ and what He wants for her life is what she longs to share with the girls of America. Together they plan to reach, train, and send out champion leaders for Christ. Logan and his Bride, Joanna, have been married for 3 years and have two dogs, Ky & Beau.     Ways to Partner with 1Champion
