Darryl Strawberry is described as a legend by many who have been dazzled by the dynamics of his game, the power he possessed at the plate and the story of redemption that continues to bring hope to so many lives. He has earned the legendary nicknames and phrases of one of the most feared home run hitters in the game of baseball, Straw’s Sweet Swing, Strawberry’s Field Forever and The Legendary Straw Man!

Today, as an ordained Minister, Darryl’s purpose and passion is serving The Lord Jesus Christ by speaking a message of hope and helping others transform their lives through the power of the gospel. “I was once very lost and tormented but now I am found and free in Christ Jesus. I want everyone to experience the saving and transforming power of Jesus Christ.” -Darryl Strawberry

The Charleston Leadership Foundation …bringing local Christian leaders together to minister to the community and change lives. For the last 20 years we have hosted the Annual Charleston Leadership Prayer Breakfast that attracts approx. 1200 people for a morning of fellowship and worship to hear from a national speaker about their testimony and how they came to know Jesus Christ. We also support local non-profits in our CLF Associates Program. CLF is a charitable agency of the Post and Courier Good Cheer Fund that assists those less fortunate in our community over the Christmas holidays. Working hand-in-hand with local faith leaders, we are answering prayers by answering needs. To learn more about the Charleston Leadership Foundation go to www.clf1670.org.

On Nov. 18, 2021 we heard Shannon Bream’s heartfelt testimony – sharing her personal story of fully trusting in God through challenging setbacks while keeping hope, finding purpose in the pain, and laughs along the way.

Shannon Bream is the anchor of Fox News at Night and Chief Legal Correspondent for the Fox News Channel. She is also the author of the best-sellers Finding the Bright Side and the newly-released The Women of the Bible Speak. (See images below & click for more info)

Though she spends her days covering politics and the United States Supreme Court, Shannon started her professional life as a sexual harassment attorney. She counts it a great privilege to cover the news of the day at such a pivotal moment in history. Amid the swirl of troubling news from around the globe, her faith is her greatest comfort and hope. She is a magna cum laude graduate of Liberty University, a former Miss America finalist and earned a Juris Doctorate with honors from Florida State University College of Law.

Away from work, Shannon enjoys running, fly fishing, reading and traveling the world with her husband, Sheldon. They live in the Washington, D.C., area with their mischievous lab, Biscuit.
