Declarations of Truth & Power


Presentations that Equip & Inspire


You will laugh, cry, and learn to apply God’s Word to your everyday circumstances.

I’m a Bible teacher who loves to study and talk about Jesus. When speaking, I use scriptures, stories, and sometimes songs to lead people to encounter God so they can experience the fullness of His abiding presence.

While I much prefer teaching people in person, I’ve learned to speak every bit as passionately to a camera when necessary. Click over to my Speaking Topics page to see samples of live events and studio recordings.
