About the Directors

Alan and Lori Harris are a couple of baby boomers who came to the Lord in the 70’s during a period of revival know as the Jesus Movement. They’ve demonstrated radical Christian living in a fallen world, raising seven children and mentoring many others. In the 2000’s they become Catholic and YWAM Lay Missionaries.

Alan and Lori’s energy permeates everything they do. They have always been pioneers and status quo resistors. They have a passion for living a conscious, daily relationship with Jesus and leading others of all ages to do the same. They still maintain that No Compromise fire and youthfulness they had when Jesus first called them.
