Video Conference



Peter Greer is president and CEO of HOPE International, a global Christ-centered microenterprise development organization serving throughout Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. Prior to joining HOPE, Peter worked internationally as a microfinance adviser in Cambodia and Zimbabwe and managing director of Urwego Community Bank in Rwanda. He is a graduate of Messiah College and received a master’s in public policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School. Peter has coauthored over 10 books, including Mission Drift (selected as a Book Award Winner from Christianity Today) and Rooting for Rivals (selected as a Leadership Resource of the Year in Outreach Magazine).

Jena Nardella is the Nonprofit Portfolio partner for Praxis, a venture building group focused on advancing redemptive entrepreneurship through supporting founders, funders, and innovators motivated by their faith to renew culture and love their neighbors. Prior to Praxis, Jena founded Blood:Water alongside the GRAMMY Award winning band, Jars of Clay. Under her leadership, the organization raised more than $20M, providing small grants to grassroots organizations in sub-Saharan Africa addressing HIV/AIDS and water, sanitation and hygiene.

Jena is the author of "One Thousand Wells" (Simon & Schuster, 2015) which shares a captivatingly honest account of how her passion for saving the world grew to a more humbler, long-term calling of loving the world in all its brokenness. Jena serves on the boards of a nonprofit and a private foundation and spends her Sunday afternoons in a Santa Clara County Jail facilitating writing courses to inmates. Jena graduated from Whitworth University with a degree in political studies. She and her husband, James, have two children and live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

F&L provides the Biblical perspective on a myriad of current policies that every Christian should strive to gain knowledge of as a staff on Capitol Hill.
Hill Staffer
F&L is a Christian ministry that seeks to present an informed, Christian worldview to matters of public policy.

F&L has facilitated my ability to create a network of like minded believers who can serve as a sounding board for ideas and can help move those ideas forward. F&L is not just a place to go hear lectures (and get free food) and learn about an issue; it's also a place to meet people with whom you can work cooperatively toward common goals.
