What people are saying

"Chris has a message and personal story that connected with both our students and youth leaders throughout the weekend. To echo many people who heard him speak upon our theme, 'Nobody could have said it better!' His messages encourage students who have doubts and questions about God's faithfulness when walking through brokenness. The impact that brokenness can have on others can be used for a purpose! Chris reminded us that, even though it may seem that God is nowhere to be found, He is still very present in our lives and working in our midst." - Luke Emmert, Talent Coordinator, Tennessee Christian Teen Convention

"In my 11-year tenure as Director of Campus Ministries, Chris was one of the most impactful speakers we hosted on campus. His relational and authentic speaking style was immediately winsome with our community, and his story of overcoming the odds, powerful. I would highly recommend Chris for your university event or chapel!" - Daniel Gluck, Ph.D, former Campus Ministries Director, William Jessup University

"Chris is an incredible communicator who has a love for the Lord. He has used his story to faithfully communicate to students and adults Biblical Truths that God uses to transform lives. The powerful testimonies that result from those who hear God's story in Chris are not only incredible, but inspiring." - Jay Johnson, Assistant Director of Program, Hume Lake Christian Camps

"Chris spoke at a Connecting Women of Hope Conference here in Humboldt County, CA. He was more than happy to speak at an all women's event where most men would have been intimidated! Chris' zest for life and love for all people shined through everything he said. His story encouraged everyone to see the blessings that God gives us in times of adversity, and hope in our dark hours. He does it all with a tongue in cheek humor that had us roaring with laughter one moment, and then in the next with a seriousness that made us really believe that there truly is hope in God our loving Father." - Carmen Neitzke, Connecting Women of Hope
