PREVIOUS YEARS SPEAKERS / WORSHIP LEADERS
Heidi Baker and her husband Rolland began Iris Ministries, Inc., an interdenominational mission, in 1980 and have been missionaries for the past twenty-five years. She was ordained as a minister in 1985 after completing her BA and MA degrees at Southern California College in Biblical Studies and Church Leadership. Heidi was powerfully called to the mission field when she was sixteen and living on an Indian reservation as an American Field Service student. She was led to the Lord by a Navajo preacher. Several months later she was taken up in a vision for several hours and heard the Lord speak to her and tell her to be a minister and a missionary to Africa, Asia and England. When she returned home to Laguna Beach, California, she began ministering at every opportunity and leading short-term mission teams. Rolland and Heidi met at a small charismatic church in Southern California and married six months later after realizing they were united in their calling and desire to see revival among the poor and forgotten of the world.

She and Mike—her husband of 41 years—co-founded Generals International in 1985.

She describes her call to the nations as “an inverted homesickness”: while she has strong bonds with her two children and six grandchildren back home in Dallas, she has a constant yearning to minister to unreached people globally. Through her journeys, Cindy’s heart has remained fixed on the realization that Jesus left the ninety-and-nine to go to the one.
Cindy has written for Charisma, Ministry Today, and Spirit-Led Woman, and is the author of seven books, including such bestsellers as Possessing the Gates of the Enemy, The Voice of God, and Women of Destiny.

Gwen R. Shaw founder of End-Time Handmaidens, Inc. died on January 13, 2013. After graduating from a Canadian Bible School, she answered the call of God to go to China in 1947.

She escaped on the second to last flight out of Lanchow, the nearest airport – a three-day journey. With the door closed to China, Dr. Shaw continued to fulfill her call to the Chinese by ministering in Taiwan and Hong Kong, where she lived until 1970.

In 1970, after a lengthy fast, the Lord burdened her to call out the “End-Time Handmaidens” to reap the harvest in the nations of the world. It was after this that she founded the organization which is known by that name.
