Author of Invention and WiRE Devotional for Men

Justin Camp is our legendary Christian outdoorsman who finds the simplest things to be the most beautiful.

When Justin is not busy writing his weekly devotional for the thousands of men already inspired by his words, he loves to spend his time backpacking with his wife and three kids. His current checklist includes places like Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier, Zion, and Joshua Tree.

As if we didn't think Justin was cool enough already, he is also a huge Winston Churchill fan. It's no surprise that a little history can inspire Justin Camp; however, it is a surprise that he was such a prankster in high school. Apparently, he has pulled a few pranks that achieved legendary status.

"One of my favorite places is San Francisco International Airport. I love the very beginning of a journey, on the way to some adventure, when it feels like anything is possible."



Author of Building Smarter Organizations

Gordon Vala-Webb is a family man who has a passion for innovation.

Pajama day is a regular routine in the Vala-Webb household. The rules are simple: no cooking, no visitors, and nothing outside of the plaid pajama realm. The cuisine of the day most likely includes Chinese food; har gow dumplings at dim sum or moo-shu pork are just a few of Gordon's favorite dishes! He found his love for Chinese food when his parents moved his family to Hong Kong when he was three.

Speaking of family, Gordon hopes to be remembered as a wonderful father to his daughter. His innovative nature has led him to make the world a little bit better by helping the organizations that we depend on work a lot smarter.

"I have great admiration for those who lead in the introduction of a new order of things and want to help out as best I can."



Author of Still Listening

Susan Vitalis is a shining example of a woman who strives to live a life reflecting Christ.

Susan has a passion for servant leadership. She has shared her many skills with people all around the world, and she continues to spread her kindness to every person she meets. Susan is the happiest when she is hiking a mountain with her family or enjoying the view of a serene beach.

As much as she loves the outdoors, she also knows that you can't order a pizza with extra cheese from the top of a mountain. She finds a middle ground between solitude and community at her home in Fargo, North Dakota. When Susan is home, you will find her rocking out to Rend Collective and hanging with her dog.

"As I wrote in my book, I want to be remembered as someone who lived a life reflecting Christ–nonjudgmentally helping the least of these."
