Ask Don Moen what he does, and the answer might surprise you. He won’t say he’s a songwriter even though he’s written more than 100 songs. He won’t say he’s a worship leader even though he’s led worship on every continent but Antarctica and recorded numerous albums. He won’t say he’s a businessman or producer even though he has produced and directed hundreds of successful projects.

Amazing Grace Cruz (Co-Host)
I was raised in a house with over 70 girls. I've learnt to live, love and speak for a broken generation, travel across nations, share the heart of God for children and model what God can do through the broken and the weakest. Worship has been my foundation but Justice has been my heart. I'm passionate about serving nonprofits, brands and its leader who are "transformation" centric. I've witnessed the power of stories that can transform communities, voices that can drive real change and impact that can be greater than your capacity.
