Brae Wyckoff is a published author. His first book, The Orb of Truth, was released in November 2012 and is the first in his fantasy adventure novels, The Horn King Series, which weaves Christian faith together with a magical realm of dragons and lore, in an epic tale of good versus evil. His other books of the series, The Dragon God and The Vampire King are now available. His first children’s book, The Unfriendly Dragon, was dedicated to his grandson Avery and is illustrated by Disney artist, Seth Weinberg.

Brae co-hosted a radio/podcast with Steve Maddox (Director of John Paul Jackson’s Dreams and Mysteries show) called Prophetic Underground. He started his own podcast called Broadcast Muse where he interviewed Christian ministry leaders, authors, and notable celebrities.

Brae is also working on a documentary called San Diego Unveiled where he will be interviewing key leaders of the region about the history of this amazing city with deep Christian roots.

Brae served as Elder, Associate Pastor, and Executive Pastor at Awakening International Church. He attended The School of Activation; an offshoot of the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, CA.

Brae was born and raised in San Diego, CA.  He married his beautiful wife, Jill, on December 11th, 1993. They have three children, Tommy, Michelle, and Brittany, and six grandchildren.

Brae loves being a husband, a father (and grandpa), and cherishes each moment with his family.

Jill Wyckoff is widely known in the San Diego region as a prophetic artist, however, Jill is also the author of Once Upon A Backpack, a true-life fairytale of self-discovery and destiny. Now a multimedia theatrical event and audio experience, Jill collaborated with amazingly gifted and talented artists to bring Once Upon A Backpack to the stage.  This raw and relevant production boasts spoken word, dance, storytelling, a power-packed original music score by singer/songwriter, Michelle Barsana, and riveting video created by KWA member Rhonda Barber. The Once Upon A Backpack EXPERIENCE is helping people offload their own backpack of lies and step into the freedom of their true identity.

Jill is an encounter artist and storyteller. She uses the arts to encounter people with the goodness of God; to bring wholeness and restoration. She and her husband, Brae, are ordained pastors and served as Associate Pastors at Awakening International Church. They do itinerant ministry, passionately preaching the gospel of Jesus  Christ in churches, and on the mission field, both locally and abroad.

Jill is the proud mother of three children (six, counting their spouses) and six beautiful grandchildren–all of whom are her bliss. She considers herself blessed beyond words to be able to serve Jesus alongside her husband, Brae.
