*Panel: Robin O’Bannon, Amberli Nelson, Burgess Owens, and Rod Meldrum – Race Relations in the Last Days
Robin is the chief curriculum writer, instructor and founder of 21 Whiskey Servant Leadership Education, which is dedicated to the preparation of 21st century warriors for the role of servant leadership in the Millennium. “The best soldiers know that the most powerful instrument in a warrior’s inventory is love. We live in a time where we possess copious amounts of information, but are low on love. This prevents effective discipleship, making us of little use in the hands of the Lord in gathering Israel. We have to understand that no matter how much we know, it’s all about love. When we are not immersed in love we are not immersed in God and therefore cannot truly do what He asks.” She believes there are few better qualified for preparing Americans for the reins of leadership in the Millennium than those who have sacrificed all that they are to serve God and the sovereign citizens of this Republic in both peacetime and war. Those who personify, “Greater love hath no man than this…”
Robin is a veteran of Operations Desert Shield, Desert Storm and Southern Watch. She also served as a dedicated Instructor of Technology and Military Science in the fields of leadership and the profession of arms. Her decorations and awards include Liberation of Kuwait Medal; Liberation of Kuwait Medal w/Saudi Palm; Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; Southwest Asia Defense Medal w/three devices; Global War on Terrorism Medal; National Defense Service Medal w/one device and ALS Instructor of the Year.
Robin has received an Occupational Instructor certification from Air University, and AAS, BA and MBA degrees in the fields of Military Science instruction, training, leadership and development. She believes, however, that her most valuable experience has come from being battle tested and honed by the “Supreme Commander in Chief” in the field of life.
Amberli Gustin Nelson received a B.S. in Sociology from Brigham Young University (’94) and recently completed her Master’s Degree in Athletic Administration from CUI (2014). A busy wife and mother of seven, Amberli has a deep and abiding love of truth, knowledge and greater understanding and therefore she thoroughly enjoys reading about and researching subjects she is most passionate about which include: sacred symbology, The Book of Mormon, early LDS church history, and Jewish religious customs, beliefs and traditions. She has become an expert on ancient Jewish practices, especially those involving the Laws of Moses. She delights in sharing this knowledge with others and does so with energy and enthusiasm. Amberli has discovered compelling new evidence that the ancient Hopewell Mound Builders may have been living the laws of Moses based on archaeological findings of the essential materials required for obedience to those laws. Her incredibly powerful new presentation was a tremendous hit at our Spring 2012 National Conference and she has some incredible new information to share. Her presentation was titled – Connections Between Jewish Family, Cultural and Religious Practices and Those of the Ancient Hopewell Civilization. Amberli has a life-long passion for researching ancient scriptures, customs and symbols – especially in connection with the Law of Moses. She delights in traveling, learning and in sharing her knowledge with others and does so with great enthusiasm and passion. Amberli and her family reside in Salem, Utah.
Despite All-American honors and selection in the First-Round of the 1973 NFL Draft (13th pick overall), a winning record on the field eluded Burgess Owens as he not only persevered but learned to thrive through a dozen losing seasons.
Following college, Burgess was the 13th player drafted in the 1st round by the NY Jets. He was selected that year as the Jets’ Rookie of the Year and to the NFL’s All-Rookie team. After being traded to the Oakland Raiders, Burgess lead the Raiders defensive squad in tackles on their way to the 1980 Super Bowl Championship.
Since retiring from the NFL, Burgess has devoted his time to mentoring and improving the lives of our next generation of leaders. He founded Second Chance 4 Youth; a Utah based non-profit organization dedicated to helping troubled an incarcerated youth. Burgess is an outspoken advocate for conservative values and intends to return Utah’s 4th Congressional District back to Republicans.
