Amanda is an avid swimmer and checkers player, occasionally tries to play golf, and loves exploring D.C. She has served on the Executive Council of the Tennessee Intercollegiate State Legislature, serves in student government, and is involved in a local church. She also really enjoys reading C.S. Lewis, Charles Dickens, and church fathers, and keeping up with ethical developments.
Prison Fellowship holds a special place in Amandaâ€™s life and she hopes to be involved for years to come.
Anne contributes to National Review Online, the Weekly Standard, Touchstone, Family Security Matters, Beliefnet, the Independent Womenâ€™s Forum, and other publications. Her review of Christina Hoff Sommersâ€™s book, The War Against Boys, was given a first place Evangelical Press Award in the category of critical review. Anne has been called everything from â€œThe Handmaiden of Satanâ€ by the extreme right (for a piece she wrote about the Harry Potter books) to â€œfull-service propagandistâ€ by the extreme left Center for the Media and Democracy, which dislikes everything she writes.
Anne is married to Capt. Brent Morse of the Public Health Service. The couple has two sons in college, Travis and Trevor.
Allen and his wife met at George Mason University (Final Four 2006!), married in D.C.'s Blizzard of '96, and now homeschool their wonderful children. A member of the third class of Centurions, Allen is a fan of Ronald Reagan, Buddy Holly, Magnum, P.I. reruns, courageous public policy, and uncommon valor.
Her resume also includes 14 years of dance training (including professional hula), several roles in college drama productions, and four years of competitive speech and debate with several state titles, and a national recognition of third in expository speech.
Angelise assists in coaching a local NCFCA speech club, serves as a resident assistant at PHC, helps host a biweekly radio program, "The Soundboard," volunteers at a local Pregnancy Health Center, and is a member of a Sovereign Grace Church.
She has been most recently sighted in the company of her sporty Mazda, affectionately known as â€œZorro.â€
Billy's writing influences are C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, and anyone else who smokes a pipe. He enjoys hunting, hiking, writing, and reading. In his spare time he enjoys using his life experiences and intriguing testimony as a two-time cancer survivor to reach people through public speaking, with the hope that his story can deepen others in their faith. Beyond that, he's actually quite boring.
He is an avid reader and a student of American history with a special interest in American presidents. He feels strongly that all authority comes from God and that each president is divinely appointed with specific goals and timing. His goal is to determine what Godâ€™s plan was and is for each of them.
Teaching is his passion and he currently uses this gift in various classes in his church. He is a member of the 2007 Centurion class and plans on utilizing this valuable knowledge to help bring salt and light to Southern Wisconsin.
Dennis is married to Judy, the love of his life, and has three stepchildren and three grandchildren. He enjoys spending as much time with them as he can.

He is a recovering politician, having served for 15 years in the California State Assembly, where he was Republican Leader from â€™84-â€˜88. He also became known as #06833-097 during the two years he spent as an inmate in federal prison. Pat is married to Gail, who is blind to his faults and laughs at his jokes. They have three children, two daughters in college, and a son who is a sophomore in high school. Because of their investment in their kidsâ€™ education, Pat and Gail have told their children that they will always be welcome at the doublewide. Pat heads up Justice Fellowship, the criminal justice reform arm of Prison Fellowship, and is passionate about bringing the Christian principles of restorative justice to our criminal justice system.
Roberto Rivera y Carlo
He doesnâ€™t get home very often since that draining of the Zero Point Module restricts Stargate traffic to priority missions only. In the meanwhile, he enjoys such advanced Tauri pursuits as baseball, HDTV, and Earth Jazz and Classical on high-resolution audio.
Stephen's wife, Leni, is originally from Indonesia, which accounts for his love of Sumatran coffee. While they hope children are in the offing, for now they have the friendliest dog in the world, Veronica the Border Collie Mix.
Stephen enjoys conversations touching on theology, philosophy, pop culture (especially films), and all things related to C.S. Lewis and Arthurian legend. He serves as Prison Fellowshipâ€™s grants and foundations specialist.
When not receiving medical attention, Steve likes to cook, read, and exercise, and maintains an inexplicable fondness for the Cincinnati Bengals.
