Charles Powell’s life is filled with remarkable memories from his childhood amid the 1960’s fight for civil rights in Mississippi, to his 1980’s midnight encounters with Soviet spies during the Cold War, life as a bodyguard for royalty to working undercover in the War on Drugs.

Many people experiment with drugs and others with religions, Powell spent his 20’s and 30’s experimenting with danger on a level that few men survive. Today Charles Powell is a writer and speaker on topics ranging from human trafficking to personal security to terrorism. He is the founder of Mercy Movement (, a clandestine organization comprised of like-minded individuals and groups all dedicated to laying their lives on the line to rescue victims of human trafficking. Charles is a published author of numerous works including two books on human trafficking for New Hope Publishers “Not in My Town” and the follow-up “Not in My World” due out in mid-2017.

Jody Pyles


Don’t let his good looks fool you. If you take time to look beneath the surface you will find in Jody Pyles the heartbeat of a champion. He’s held titles as state, national and world champion in sport karate, but he didn’t stop there. He took his skills from the ring to the streets working as a police officer on patrol, as a police defensive tactics instructor and undercover. Jody Pyles isn’t just an athlete… He’s a gifted singer/songwriter with a throng of fans who eagerly await each new performance and song.

In his time away from the spotlight he is a highly skilled operator using his expertise to free slave children in countries across Asia, Central and South America and the US. In dangerous and dusty places Jody Pyles is known as a friend to the many… and a champion to the forgotten few.
