Public Speaking

My mission is to help Christians do their most exceptional work for the glory of God and the good of others. Over the years, my team and I have helped more than 1,000,000 Christ-followers connect their faith with their work through a variety of mediums, but it is the medium of public speaking that I find to be the most rewarding.

For more than a decade, I have been speaking publicly on stages big (Cru, Harvard, SXSW, etc.) and small (churches, business retreats, youth events, etc.) all around the globe. I know first-hand how a professional speaker can make or break an event, which is why I take my partnership with organizers like you so seriously. If you choose to invite me to your conference, church, or business, I promise to deliver a high-energy, gospel-centric presentation that helps you achieve your goals for your event and makes you a hero to your attendees.

Most Requested Topics

Below is a list of topics that I am most frequently asked to speak on. I customize every single presentation to meet the organizer’s specific needs. My goal is to help you achieve your goals in bringing me in to speak to your group. Any of these talks can be delivered as a keynote, break-out session, sermon, commencement address, or as a private presentation to a small team. Each speech can be tailored to fit time slots ranging from 30-60 minutes.

Called to Create

In the Church, we talk a lot about how God is loving, holy, and omnipotent, but we rarely if ever hear that God is creative. And yet that is the very first thing God reveals about himself in Scripture. In this inspiring talk based on my bestselling book, I open-up God’s Word to remind audiences that we Christians worship a God who creates and calls us to reflect His image by creating businesses, laws, art, medicine, schools, services, and other cultural goods for His glory and the good of others.

Every Christian is a “Full-Time Missionary”

The vast majority of Christians work outside of the four-walls of the local church or a donor-supported ministry. And yet, tragically, almost none of these people see themselves as “full-time missionaries,” called to make disciples as they go about their lives and work. In this thought-provoking and inspiring talk, I help audiences understand how they can be obedient to the Great Commission without changing their vocation or location, drawing on Scripture and my own experience as someone who has “done ministry” in secular environments for more than a decade.

The Ministry of Excellence

We spend more than half of our waking hours working. That makes our jobs one of the primary means by which we live-out the Greatest Commandments. But in order to most effectively love God and love others through our work, we must do our work with excellence. In this inspiring talk, I use compelling stories and Scripture to convince audiences that “the ministry of excellence” is our most fundamental form of Christian witness.

Master of One

We live in a time of unprecedented options, leading many people and organizations to spend years getting good at a lot of different things, but not exceptional at any one of them. In this unforgettable presentation, I help audiences understand why being a “Jack (or Jill) of all trades, and a master of none” is a recipe for mediocrity for any individual, ministry, or business. The solution is becoming a master of one. Through Scripture, scientific research, and compelling stories, this thought-provoking and practical presentation helps audiences find and focus on the work they and their organizations were created to do most exceptionally well for God’s glory and the good of others.

No Platform? No Problem.

Your event attendees have something unique to say that will advance the cause of Christ, and many of them want to share that message in the form of a book. But unfortunately, most of these aspiring authors have been told they can’t get a book deal unless they come to the table with a massive platform of email addresses and social media followers. I am proof that that is simply not true. In this highly-practical talk, I show audiences how I secured multiple five-figure advance offers from name-brand publishers with absolutely no platform to my name and how—after getting the advance check—we were able to build the platform necessary to make that book a national bestseller.
