Ann Hatch grew up attending the mainstream LDS Church. In 2003, Ann left the LDS Church with her husband and mother to join Christ’s Church. Her current callings are a Temple Matron, Relief Society and Genealogy teacher. Her hobbies include genealogy, teaching, and spending time with family. Ann has a BA from Boise State University in Computer Information Technology. If she wasn’t busy enough, she is doing research for a book that she is writing on the history of Christ’s Church. Ann and her husband, Dan, live in Nevada with part of their growing family.

Bryan Buchanan works at Benchmark Books, an independent bookstore in Salt Lake City specializing in Mormon history. He is interested in various Mormon history rabbit holes, particularly fundamentalist Mormon history and the 1890–1930 transition period.

David Patrick was brought up by his mother and step father straddling mainstream LDS and fundamentalist LDS doctrines, which gave him a unique experience with and passion for the origins of Mormon doctrine. After serving an LDS mission to the Japanese he found his way into Christ’s Church. He has served multiple callings in the Temple, Seventy, and missionary program. But his favorite is Sunday school teacher.
