FRANCO BOTTLEY grew up in the Catholic church. He went to Catholic school, was an altar boy, was commissioned by the bishop, and graduated from Saint Leo University. After 16 years of Catholic education he came to a startling conclusion. He knew absolutely nothing about the Bible! This realization came after attending his first-ever home Bible fellowship and hearing the manifestations of holy spirit. This experience changed the course of his life forever.
Since that time Franco has been studying and teaching the Bible for the past 40 years. Two passions have directed his life and ministry: an unwavering commitment to the rightly divided Word of God and seeing lives transformed by God's grace and love. His passion models the contagious joy that springs from enthusiastically following after Jesus Christ his Lord.
Franco is married to Christina, his biggest blessing ever and love of his life. He is a dedicated and devoted father of three children, Anthony, Ciara, and baby Gianni. Franco has a passion for performing in musical theater, riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle, mountain climbing, snow skiing, and adventurous traveling. He is an accomplished Videographer and Graphic Artist and is dedicated to using his talents to communicate God’s Word in a visually powerful way.
Franco is an ordained minister and a founder of The Living Truth Fellowship. He serves as President and is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees.

MARC DICKIE jokes that he was born an Englishman but is now a born-again American. He came to the United States from London when he was 16 and got seriously involved with Christianity. Although he had been confirmed in the Church of England and studied with non-denominational churches in the United States, Marc did not find what he was looking for until he searched outside orthodox Christian circles. What he was being taught about Jesus and his Father did not line up with what he was reading in the Bible, or with what he was experiencing in his church. It just wasn’t making sense.
After several years of searching and studying with different ministries, he came across The Living Truth Fellowship. The teachings he found helped him correct much of what he had previously been taught. He describes it as looking at Jesus through a telescope that was out of focus, but is now crystal clear.
