For over 20 years, Brad Stine has been by far the most unique Christian comic in the country. His desire to mix his style of intelligent and relatable comedy observations has always been supplemented by his desire to inspire believers to be bold and unapologetic about their faith in Christ. This approach has made him a sought-after comic for the “right”, appearing numerous times on Fox & Friends, Huckabee, CNN, as well as on numerous Christian broadcasts. The accolades he has received from the likes of Tucker Carlson to Eric Metaxas and ministry leaders from Promise Keepers to mega-church pastors (and everyone in between) has made him one of the most influential Christian comics, actors, writers, and apologists in the nation.



Willie Franklin

Franklin is a Singer/Songwriter from East Tennessee and also the founder of The Lost Vets Rescue.





Listen to inspiring speakers by some of the most influential leaders from our community and beyond on topics of faith, family, and freedom.

During his high school years, he won several statewide sports and academic awards. In his senior year, he was named first-team all-state in basketball, and he placed first in the state in academic testing in both English and Science.

He completed his undergraduate education at Pensacola Christian College (Pensacola, Florida) in 1983 with a teaching major in Secondary Education (teaching fields: Physical Education and Science). While earning his bachelor’s degree, he was a member of the school’s basketball and baseball teams, served as class president, and served as Chairman of the school’s Pan-Hellenic council.

Starting in 1983, he served first as high school teacher and coach, then as principal, and finally as chief administrator in school systems in Tennessee and Pennsylvania. During this time, he taught a variety of middle school and high school courses in English, Literature, Science, History, Health, and Physical Education.

During his tenure as an educator, he coached both boys and girls teams in seven different sports and has qualified several teams for state tournaments. He has coached state championship teams in basketball and baseball and has been named as the Coach of the Year in basketball and soccer. He has been licensed as a high school and college referee in six different sports in three states.

In 1986, he was named a Stokely Fellow by the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, an award recognizing his outstanding contributions to the field of liberal arts education.

In 1987, he completed a Master of Art in Education degree from Tusculum College (Greeneville, Tennessee).

In September of 1994, as a married student, he began his pursuit of a law degree by enrolling in law school at Regent University School of Law (Virginia Beach, Virginia) with an academic scholarship. He finished the three-year program in two and one-half years. In December of 1996, he was awarded a Juris Doctorate degree with honors, graduating 17th in his class of 150. As a law student at Regent University, he was president of several student organizations, was a participant in the school’s moot court competition which went on to receive several awards, and was a member of the class dispute resolution team which won the American Bar Association National Championship in 1995.

Upon graduation from law school, he accepted a position with a Harrisburg, Pennsylvania law firm working in the fields of estate planning, elder law, real estate law, contract law, personal injury law, and general civil litigation.

In 1999, he founded Cobble Law Firm, a law firm with an emphasis in:
real estate law,
estate planning, wills, trusts, and probate,
elder law,
business and corporate law,
religious and charitable non-profit organizations,
first amendment law,
product liability,
personal injury,
wrongful death, and
all other types of civil litigation.

The law firm has its main office in Greeneville, Greene County, Tennessee and a satellite office in Elizabethtown, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

Mr. Cobble has worked with The Rutherford Institute, the National Legal Foundation, and the American Center for Law and Justice. He is a member of the Federalist Society and the Christian Legal Society, and is a former member of the American Trial Lawyers Association, the Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association, and of his federal, state, and local bar associations. He is admitted to practice in federal courts and before the state Supreme Courts in both Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

He serves as corporate counsel of numerous for-profit businesses and corporations. He also serves as legal counsel, board member, and/or trustee of several non-profit organizations and public interest groups which have a national presence.

In 2001, he began the development of a very popular 40-hour course on early American history and the U.S. Constitution called the Institute on the Constitution, and there are hundreds of graduates across Tennessee and even many in some other states. The content of this course has inspired scores of individuals to accept the call to restore our nation’s original values by serving in public office and becoming community and church leaders. This course continues to be in great demand, with hundreds participating in the most recent offering.

In 2002, he helped to form a local movement called Reclaiming America’s First Principles (RAFP) which was designed to inform citizens about how religious and moral values were being impacted by current issues such as court decisions, pending legislation and recently-enacted legislation, corporate advertising, and other such societal forces. Since the founding of RAFP until the present, he has served as the organization’s moderator and as the Chairman of the Board of Directors. RAFP currently issues a monthly electronic newsletter called the RAFP Issue Alert which has served thousands of subscribers.

In 2012, he became involved in a citizen’s effort to reform the operation of county government through the home rule process, which is a local movement to remove much of Nashville’s control over county government and return it to the county. After helping to lead a successful petition drive, he was placed on the ballot and elected to the Greene County Charter Commission, and afterward, the other Commissioners elected him to serve as the Chairman and as a primary drafter of the Charter.

In 2020, in response to the growing Coronavirus pandemic and the resulting governmental overreach in many areas, he developed a popular 5-hour presentation called Foundations of the American Republic which describes, in an abbreviated fashion, the fundamental role of government in our Constitutional Republic. It has been attended by many county and state officials, as well as by religious, corporate, and community leaders.

In addition to the above, he is also a frequent speaker, lecturer, and teacher on numerous topics involving our legal system and the rule of law, such as the role of religion in society, economic and monetary principles, election law, asset management and protection, non-profit organizations, and other such legal, historical, and philosophical topics related to good citizenship.

He attends Freedom Baptist Church in Greeneville, Tennessee where he currently serves as the chairman of the board. He teaches the church’s main adult Sunday School class which focuses on Christian apologetics as applied in practical Christian living.

He has been married to Sheri Cobble since 1985 and is the father of four children.
