Speaker & Presenter Bios
Speaker John Turnipseed: From lost and frightened little boy – to gang leader, drug dealer and pimp – to one of the nation’s most respected pioneers of community restoration, John Turnipseed’s story of transformation and restoration is one of unflinching honesty – and contagious hope.
Crossing Home serves individuals in recovery that are exiting treatment and the criminal justice system by providing safe, sober and affordable housing, helping them to find lasting employment, connect to community resources, and encouraging personal and spiritual growth; as they cross over to become valued and productive members of our communities.
Five Stone Media challenges current thinking in our culture, and attempts to bring light to an ever-darkening world by communicating thought-provoking, life-changing stories through the medium of film and television. We started with 3 short films featuring the remarkable story of John Turnipseed, a feared career criminal turned respected ambassador of God’s love and hope.
