In an industry rampant with temptation and excess, Lani Netter has maintained her Christian morals and values. Lani is married to Gil Netter, Hollywood producer of 26 feature films such as Academy Award Winner, The Blind Side, Marley and Me, and Flicka. She has been fulfilling her passion and calling as a Hollywood intercessor since their marriage in 1984. “Being married to Hollywood has forced me to grow in the Lord in so many ways.” While living the role of a Hollywood wife, she devoted herself to her two children; Jake, 23 and Grace, 15. Lani attends Jubilee Church in Camarillo, California. She and Gil have a farm in Malibu where they raise horses, chickens, and fruit trees. Lani’s walk has led her around the world, first as a model, then wife and mother, intercessor, and now film producer. The Lord has now inspired Lani to start her own values-based production company. She currently has one film and two documentaries in production, all of which have a core essence of God’s message. Her motto is “Never a dull moment on the front lines with God.” Lani has plenty of stories of inspiration and humorous anecdotes about life in Hollywood as a conservative Christian. Lani has been a writer for the Malibu Surfside News. She is also on the Advisory Film Board at Pepperdine University. Two charities that she champions are The Union Rescue Mission and The Dream Center. Ephesians 3:20 is her key scripture; Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
Becky had made a complete mess of her life – relationally, financially and, especially, spiritually before Christ. In 1992, when she came to the end of herself and cried out to God, He graciously swooped in and lifted her out of the pit of her own making and set her feet on a solid Rock. Since that time, the Lord has done an amazing work as bit by bit and inch-by-inch He has delivered, transformed and renewed Becky to become the woman of God she is today. Becky currently serves as a consultant to Christ-centered ministries, primarily in the pro-life movement. In this capacity, she is able to use her unique giftings and skills to fulfill her passion for discipleship and the sanctity of Life as well as have the flexibility to travel for pleasure and ministry. Becky graduated from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia with a degree in Communications and, for now, God has called Becky to walk in the gift of singleness. Turner is the President of KBT Consulting and serves non-profits in strategic planning and development.
