As early as 1972, domestic violence and the journey through it entered into the life of the founder of Reach Out Speak Out. (Story found in the book entitled It Started With A Hamburger.) She is now very passionate about reaching women in domestic violence relationships within the church. Jan’s experiences have helped many to see a better, healthier and Biblical way to be free from domestic violence.

Beth Simpson (Secretary)

Domestic violence is so often overlooked and subtle you don’t even realize it is happening.

As an adult, Beth realized that she had grown up with a controlling, DV father. Her passion for Reach Out Speak Out came through this realization, and hopes her experiences can help others in similar situations.

The subject of domestic violence is particularly of interest to Paul because he was in a domestically violent family and frequently saw it being displayed by his mother and his father. Paul Porter has been the arena voice of the Orlando Magic for all 23 years of their history and the arena voice of the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League for all but one of the 18 years they have played. He has announced NBA All-Star Games in 1980, 1992 and 2012. He was the voice of the NBA Finals in 1995 and 2009 and the NHL Finals in 2004 as well as the NHL All-Star Game in Tampa. Porter has been the voice of the World Basketball Championships in 1994 and 2002.
