Dewayne was born on February 21, 1975 and is a native of Linden, Ala. He is married to his best friend of 17 years, Leslie, and they are proud parents of three children: Devin, Dorian, and Journi. His corporate background consists of being the General Manager of one of Hilton Hotels brand hotels. Some of his theological training was at Birmingham Theological seminary. Dewayne had attended church with his grandmother as a child, but stopped attending after his grandmother's health prevented her from going. He has confessed that even though he attended church, he never "heard" the gospel message. He first believed the gospel message as an adult when he attended church after his boss at the time invited him. He then served there as a deacon for six years and youth pastor for seven years. During that time he was led to leave the corporate world and start Flatline Movement. Flatline is derived from Romans 6:11 which says, “ So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.” Flatline is a combination of gospel artists, weekly mentoring and an AAU high school basketball team (currently off for now due to scheduling). He was Strong Tower at Washington Park’s first youth pastor where he developed their youth program which is known as iENGauge. He is also the chaplain of Lee High School football team. He also is on staff with Montgomery Baptist Association. Dewayne wrote his first book in 2018 called Flatlined 2 Ngauge. You can find the book at Books-A-Million, Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
Keelan Adams is the son of John Sr. and Jo Ann Adams. He was born in Mobile, AL and raised by his parents in McIntosh, AL—a rural town just a few miles north of Mobile. Early in life he made a profession of the Christian faith because he perceived it as the good thing to do. He was baptized at the tender age of 8. However, upon entering the period of adolescence, a lifestyle of rebellion soon followed. He heard the gospel articulated clearly for the first time from a gospel-centered televangelist. After the Lord opened his eyes to see his desperate need for a savior and that he deserved the full penalty of sin, he placed his faith and trust in Jesus Christ November 2002 at age 17 and began a lifestyle of repentance from sin. As a senior at McIntosh High School Keelan was tempted to follow the lucrative career paths of his older brothers. Nevertheless, his ever-increasing desire to learn more about the Scriptures and to become a missionary or pastor caused him to seek a college that offered a solid biblical studies program. He soon matriculated at a Bible college in 2004. While a sophomore at Southeastern Bible College (SEBC) at Birmingham, AL he married Tracey (Bell) Adams, who is a constant reminder of God’s favor unto him and his best friend. Keelan later earned his degree in Bible and Theology (B.A., 2010) at SEBC and was also ordained as a Baptist minister the same year. He is currently a graduate student at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary at New Orleans, LA where he is working towards earning an advanced biblical studies degree (M.Div.). Keelan also has experience as a classical Christian educator of four years. As a Christian apologist, he serves as a featured writer, speaker, and content creator for Tactical Faith, Inc. He plans to author books that will, as he says, “contribute to Christian scholarship.” He is co-founder of Montgomery Deep History, a walking tour and historical research organization of Montgomery, AL. He has a love for auto mechanics, cycling, fishing, reading, and writing. The Lord has blessed Keelan and Tracey with five children: Quincey, Aliyah, Carson, Christian, and Jahaziel.
