Adrian Crawford

Adrian spends his time working as a spiritual and social entrepreneur. The majority of his endeavors are based out of Tallahassee, Florida where he resides with his wife Wendy and their three children. Adrian moved to Tallahassee from Akron, Ohio when he received a scholarship to play basketball at The Florida State University, and aside from a career playing professional basketball in Spain, he has lived Florida's capitol city ever since.

At the onset of his lifestyle of entrepreneurship, Adrian served for seven years as an Associate Pastor for Every Nation Tallahassee and as the Executive Director of 925 Athletic Ministries. This is when he launched his first business, a basketball skills training academy known as GameSpeed Skills. Shortly after, a sister company was born as a non-profit called GameSpeed Nation. Working with others in the church and in his companies, Adrian became skilled and adept at launching those around him in their respective fields. This catalyst effect in the lives of people he was in relationship with continued to grow throughout this time, and Adrian's desire to add value to every place he inhabited became a recognizable reality.

Adrian felt called, and with the support of the leaders at Every Nation, he began a church plant in 2012. In 2013, from a group of 18 committed people Engage Church was born. Engage is a living example of revolutionary living and racial reconciliation. Through Engage's mission of Engaging God, people and culture, Adrian has expanded his heart for reaching people in the circles he influences to equipping others to add value to their respective cultures and spaces.

Those closest to him will say that he is constantly thinking of "what's next" in any free moment. Adrian's bio will inevitably expand and change as time goes, but his heart to add value to others will not; it is the very core of everything he does and it is the lifeblood that makes him a successful spiritual and social entrepreneur.

Sophia Duque

Sophia Duque has spent half of her life in East Asia and the other half in North America.  Given the nicknames “Discipleship Machine” and “Creative Genius,” she was born in Manila, Philippines and grew up in one of the first Victory Churches where the Every Nation movement began. Sophia and her family hopped on a 20-hour flight as missionaries to help plant churches in Florida.


While studying business marketing and digital media at the University of Central Florida (UCF), Sophia’s life was centered around climbing up the corporate ladder and becoming a millionaire, until she encountered God at an ENC Conference in 2011 and found a greater purpose. She teamed up with Pastor Tom Breckwoldt to launch Lake Mary Church’s youth group in 2013. Over 1,000 students got saved and baptized in less than 3 years through that ministry. Her desire to win more souls for the Kingdom soon outweighed her desire for corporate success. She felt the call to full-time ministry during her final year at UCF, and turned down six-figure salary jobs to become a Campus Missionary. In 2017, they launched an ENC chapter at Seminole State College, and eventually at UCF. 


Currently, Sophia goes to public high schools and college campuses with a heart to see every student experience the love and power of the Gospel. Before this, she served as the Production Director at Lake Mary Church. Looking beyond her aesthetically pleasing instagram feed, distinguished fashion sense, and strong leadership, you’ll find Sophia geeking out over Spiderman, dancing in her kitchen, and trying really hard not to spill the hot macchiato in her hand.
