David Benham (Emcee)
Benham Companies
Twin brothers David and Jason Benham are former professional baseball players and nationally acclaimed entrepreneurs. Their recent accomplishments include: Inc. Magazine's Fastest Growing Private Companies, Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year Finalists, Franchise 500's Top New Franchise, Wall Street Journal's Top Real Estate Professionals, and Business Leader Media's Top 50 Entrepreneurs.
Their business success earned them a reality show with HGTV that was set to air in the fall of 2014. The show was abruptly cancelled, however, because of their commitment to traditional/biblical values. The Benhams immediately found themselves in the midst of a cultural firestorm, but they decided not to back down. Appearing on CNN, Fox News, and ABC's Nightline and Good Morning America, among others, the Benhams continue to stand up for what they believe. Since their show was cancelled, the Benhams have trended nationally on social media and more than 51 million tweets about the Benham brands have been delivered to Twitter streams.

Parable
Musicians
A "parable" is an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. In 1974 a trio known as Chuck, Pat & Joy brought their down-to-earth music to auditoriums, coffee houses, churches, and campuses in Southern California with a touch of heaven that got them introduced one night at an Inland Empire concert as "Parable". They had toyed with several names, but that night, the name stuck.

Joining them, shortly thereafter, was drummer, Don Kobayashi, and then one "classic" album later, "More Than Words", both a lead guitarist and pianist were added and "viola" . . . the band "Parable". A heavy road schedule, radio air play from L.A. to N.Y. as well as internationally, and a few personnel changes were followed by the group's second album, "Illustrations". The band has done several reunion concerts since 1978. Reviving their songs, that are diverse in style, timeless in lyric, and fit for edification, exhortation, and evangelism is both a joy to the band and relevant to today's listener.
