Founder and President Allen J. Huth started reading the Bible at age 15, after God saved his life physically and spiritually in a tragic car accident. That night, God led him to His Word, a Bible on his bedroom bookshelf. Allen has been a daily Bible reader ever since. The practice of daily Bible reading has withstood the rigors of high school, college, raising a family, working in government, non-profit organizations, and business.
Allen worked on the staff of the Colorado state legislature, was Vice President of the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry and was a partner in a business consulting firm, before staring the Ezra Project in 2002.
Since 1980, Allen has been an active volunteer in The Gideons International. He currently serves as International President, and a member of the Executive Committee. He served three years as International Vice President, three years as International Treasurer, and six years on the International Cabinet as a USA Zone Trustee. Allen was a member of the International Extension Committee for four years, overseeing the activities of Gideons in 19 countries throughout Asia and the South Pacific.
Allen has visited over 50 countries and had speaking engagements on every continent.
Gwynne W. Olson serves as Executive Assistant to the President. She is responsible for audio and video editing, website maintenance, and administrative duties. She initially volunteered so she would be held accountable to reading God’s Word daily and quickly discovered being in God’s Word gives her a peace that passes all understanding. She married her college crush, Bill, in 2015. They reside in West Columbia, Texas.
