Invite Me To Speak at Your Next Event
Thank you for considering me to speak. This page provides an overview of what you can expect from me.
Here is a quick overview of some what I hope you will learn from our time together:
Lose the clutter and find clarity so your message gets heard.
Learn a process to improve your creativity and productivity.
Discover ways to target – and grow – your community.
Click play on using image, story and art in delivering a message.
Diagnose why your creative ministries aren’t working.
Acquire better leadership skills to advance your ministry.
Think Like a Five Year Old explores a documented phenomenon in which we almost universally exhibit genius-level creativity as young children but lose it as we become adults—and what we can do to reverse this trend.
My Most Common Topics
My most common speaking topics are creativity, creative arts and media in church and ministry, branding and messaging, worship design, leadership, and social media. I can customize my presentation(s) to meet your organization’s needs. My aim in speaking is to facilitate your event’s goals.
I can present in stand alone keynotes or workshops or combined into half-day or full-day seminars.

In addition, I can build custom sessions based on any of my books, including media ministry leadership, worship design, and more.
My life passion is to use oral, written and visual communication with equal effectiveness to tell the story of Jesus Christ and advance God’s kingdom.I’ve been practicing this calling for 22 years, and for 21 years I’ve been leading pastors and church staff on the way we communicate in church. I’ve written 10 books, consulted dozens of churches, and led hundreds of conferences.
But I don’t just teach others. I also direct a creative ministry at a large church in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where I face daily leadership and tactical challenges. I believe the most effective teachers are also practitioners.
“They departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy,
and ran to SHARE WITH his disciples.” – Matthew 28:7-8
The measure of an effective message is its shareability.
My Speaking Experience
Messages That Click.
Change hearts and lives by creating messages that connect and grow communities.
I published my first short story at age 14 and my first church leadership book, The Wired Church, at age 28. I have been lead or solo writer for ten books to pastors, church leaders, communicators, and worship leaders. I’ve also published dozens of journal and magazine articles and maintained this blog since 2007. Here are some of my titles:
