Designed specifically for young people ages 15 to 30, Raw Questions, Relevant Answers (RQRA) is hosted by Dee Casper, Mark Paden, and Michelle Doucoumes, and looks at raw questions on real life issues regarding how we view ourselves, God, and our walk with Him. Topics include: Finding and surrendering to God’s will, understanding self-worth, growing a relationship with God, as well as questions on family issues, relationships, media and entertainment, bad religion, and many more.
Dee Casper is the Brand Evangelist for ARtv (ARtvnow.com). Dee had never heard of a Seventh-Day Adventist for 21 years, but by the grace of God, he found the message through 3ABN TV beginning in the fall of 2006. He was baptized in 2010 at the ARISE Cornerstone program, and has been involved in ministry ever since. He has served as a Bible worker, been a Bible teacher in an academy setting, and has taught in different schools of evangelism. He loves investing in young people, and opening their eyes to the beauty of the Everlasting Gospel, and the value that God places on each of them individually.
Michelle Doucoumes serves as an assistant professor of business at Southern Adventist University, where she also coordinates the Institute for Ethical Leadership and teaches for the SALT (Soul-winning and Leadership Training) program. Michelle loves sharing the Jesus who’s been merciful to her—in good times and bad—and helping others become inspired to do the same.
Mark Paden is a freelance creative specializing in cinematography, photography, and graphic design. He spends most of his time working on projects for ministries around the world. Before this he has spent time as an instructor in the Video Department at Heritage Academy, the Vice President for Communications of GYC, and the Creative Director for UnScene Media Group. Although he has a deep love for the visual arts, his greatest passion is the gospel of Jesus Christ and how it applies to life in a practical way.
