Event Speakers

  • Johnnette Benkovic Williams

    Johnnette Benkovic Williams is Founder and President of Women of Grace®, a Catholic apostolate for women featuring a number of outreaches including conferences, media, study groups and more.

    After years of being a non-practicing Catholic, Johnnette experienced a deep conversion back to her Catholic faith in 1981. Her conversion sparked a new vocation: sharing the Gospel message through the utilization of media. She has been an inspiring and consistent presence on EWTN Catholic radio and EWTN Catholic television for over 30 years.
  • Fr. Dwight Longenecker

    I was brought up in an Evangelical home in Pennsylvania. After graduating from the fundamentalist Bob Jones University with a degree in Speech and English, I went to study theology at Oxford University. Eventually I was ordained as an Anglican priest and served as a curate, a school chaplain in Cambridge and a country parson on the Isle of Wight.

    Realizing that the Anglican Church and I were on divergent paths, in 1995 I and my family were received into the Catholic Church. For ten years we continued to live in England where I worked as a freelance writer and charity worker. Then in 2006 the door opened to return to the USA and be ordained as a Catholic priest.

    I now serve as Pastor of Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Greenville, South Carolina.

  • Steve Wood

    Steve Wood has led youth, campus, and pro-life ministries. A graduate of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, he served as an Evangelical pastor for a decade before his entire family converted to Catholicism in 1990. Responding to a challenge from Pope John Paul II to strengthen families, he founded the Family Life Center International in 1992. Steve is the host of Faith and Family Radio, a weekly radio program covering relevant topics to the Catholic faith and family life issues. He is the author of several books included Christian Fatherhood, Legacy, The ABC’s of Choosing a Good Husband and The ABC’s of Choosing a Good Wife. Steve is also the founder of St. Joseph’s Covenant Keepers, a men’s movement that seeks to transform society through the transformation of fathers and families. In 2007, Pope Benedict XVI awarded Steve the “For the Church and for the Pope” (Pro Ecclesia Et Pontifice) medal, an award given for distinguished service to the church, in recognition for his work with St. Joseph’s Covenant Keepers. Steve and his wife Karen have been married for 35 years and are the parents of eight children and the grandparents of six grandchildren.
