Monica Rose Brennan

Monica Rose Brennan teaches at Liberty University in the School of Religion as Women’s Ministries and Evangelism professor, as well as in the Distance Learning Program for Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.

She is the founder of Liberty University’s academic women’s ministry program, as well as True Identity, a women’s ministry team.

Autumn Miles

Autumn Miles was born in Lynchburg, Virginia. She was raised in Indiana in a pastor’s home and came to know Christ at age 11. After a couple of detours spiritually she came to a point in life when she was desperate for God and completely surrendered to young women’s ministry at age 21.

Autumn is a passionate communicator who has spoken at women’s events for over a decade. Her drive to work for the Lord led to her founding The Blush Network, a young women’s conference ministry. She and her team travel the country partnering with organizations such as I Am Second and Big Brother’s Sister’s. Autumn also writes a blog and through The Blush Network has founded an Agent program that is available for young women to be trained if they have been called to young women’s ministry. She published a devotional in 2010 on faith that has been read by many young women all over the country and is currently working on her first book.

The team travels once a month through the school year to events all over the country. In addition, Awaken has become the staple worship band for the Thomas Road Baptist Church Women’s Ministry Weekly Bible Study, which hosts nearly 1,000 women per week.
