Jim Daly is president of Focus on the Family and host of the ministry’s daily radio broadcast, heard by more than 2.9 million listeners a week on more than 1,000 stations across the U.S. The show was honored as 2012 Program of the Year by the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB). Daly was named president of Focus on the Family in 2005 after 16 years with the ministry. Under his leadership, the organization has taken on a major role nationally in encouraging and helping facilitate foster-care adoptions, earning recognition from the White House and Congress for its efforts. Daly has appeared on Fox & Friends, America Live with Megyn Kelly, ABC World News Tonight and PBS’ Religion & Ethics; and been featured in Time magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today and Newsweek, which named him one of the Top 10 next-generation evangelical leaders of influence. He is a regular panelist for The Washington Post blog “On Faith.”
Kelly Rosati is the vice president of Community Outreach at Focus on the Family, where she oversees the Adoption & Orphan Care Initiative and the Sanctity of Human Life department. Prior to joining Focus, she advocated for Hawaii’s children and families in the legislature and media as executive director of the Hawaii Family Forum. During that time, Rosati and her husband, John, adopted four children–two boys and two girls–through the foster care system. In addition to advocating for orphans worldwide through projects like The Drop Box, her team’s mission at Focus on the Family is to raise awareness of and recruit adoptive families for waiting children and youth in foster care. To date, more than 1,700 families have initiated the process of adoption from foster care through the Wait No More program. Kelly has been featured in various media outlets, including The Denver Post, New York Daily News, and the Wall Street Journal.
Brian Ivie is the award-winning director of The Drop Box and co-founder of Kindred Image. He also served as a second unit director on Focus on the Family’s first documentary film, Irreplaceable. Brian recently graduated from The Bryan Singer Division of Critical Studies at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts. He is a published film critic and recreational songwriter, and was the only white male in the Saved By Grace Gospel Choir. Ivie and his team at Kindred Image are committed to raising awareness of the work of Pastor Lee Jong-rak at Jusarang Community Church in Seoul, South Korea, including raising support to construct a “Rescue Center” on site where mothers and their children will find a safe place to heal. If Brian were to get a tattoo it would be Galatians 5:1 or Hebrews 2:11. He thanks the Lord daily for his adoption into an eternal family.
