Looking to book a Christian speaker for an event or conference?
While there are no shortage of people who can speak on the topic, it’s crucial to ensure that you engage someone who has not only a valuable story to tell, but also the commanding presence and warm nature in order to deliver it. Here are eight of the very best Christian speakers, each as inspiring and fascinating as the last.
Speaker & Author
Isreal Wayne is an author and a conference speaker, as well as the Director of Family Renewal. Father to nine children, it is a wonder he manages to find time to give talks at all!
But we should all be glad that he does find the time – as his passion in defending the faith and promoting its worldview come across in fascinating and engaging fashion. His talks are gripping, intellectual and encouraging.
As the author of three highly successful books, regular columnist for numerous popular magazines and editor at ChristianWorldview.net, his work is prolific and speaks for itself. If you’re looking for a speaker with an impressive CV, then look no further.
Sandra P. Aldrich
Sandra is an author and inspirational speaker, as well as the president of Bold Words, Inc. Having worked as a teacher for fifteen years, she knows how to command an audience and keep you listening. Her wisdom draws not only from those experiences though, but also from her work as member of a grief counselling team, 9 years in Christian ministry and the time she served at the ‘school of hard knocks’ – which is where she got her Ph.D.!
You may also know Sandra’s work as senior editor at Focus on the Family.
Speaker & Comedienne
Becky Baker is known for her powerful and even life-changing seminars that help listeners to ‘shine like a star’ in every area of life. She talks about how she discovered the path to ‘real joy’ and that joy comes across in her talks and presentations.
Described as ‘one of the most fun events you will ever attend’, Becky helps those to find the humour in life and shows that following God’s word doesn’t have to be a sullen affair!
Angela is a charismatic and passionate speaker who has managed to turn a tragic life experience into an inspiring story of survival and faith. Despite losing her husband and four children in a fatal car crash, Angela managed to see the small miracles that God had allowed for her: such as the beautiful messages that her children had written for her just before they passed.
Having also served in the Air Force Reserves – working out of various different bases around the world – Angela certainly has a rich story to tell and one that holds important lessons for all of us.
J. Warner Wallace
Speaker and Author
J. Warner Wallace is a speaker whose commitment to research is unparalleled. You only have to visit his website (Cold-Case Christianity) to see the kinds of fascinating subjects he delves into. From demonstrating evidence for the resurrection, to attempting to closely date the event.
And just as impressive as the topics he tackles is the way he tackles them. Listening to his podcast, you will experience someone who is hugely engaging and interesting and who makes compelling case after compelling case. It’s thanks to this charisma and passion that he has been interviewed for so many TV shows. Book J. Warner Wallace for a speaker ‘as seen on V’.
Jenni Catron is a multi-talented and hugely interesting individual with a wide range of skills and knowledge. As well as Christian talks, Jenni also works with businesses to help them identify goals, visions and strategies – and to get to the root of problems that might be hurting profits and progress.
Many of these skills are transferable to other areas of life, as Jenni aptly demonstrates in her work as a church leader. These are not passive talks, but motivating and rousing calls to ‘put feet into vision’. Her aim is to teach skills that other religious leaders can benefit from and help to expand their influence and reach.
This was also the topic of Jenni’s latest book: Clout: Discover and Unleash Your God-Given Influence, which was released in January 2014. You can read more samples of her work at her blog JenniCatron.com (as well as the numerous other sites and publications that she regularly contributes to).

Jonathan Evans is a not only a speaker and author, but also a mentor who has a passion for helping others to fulfil their full potential. As a former NFL fullback who treasures his relationship with Christ, he hopes to help other athletes to find the same peace and certainty.
Jonathan serves with his Father, pastor and friend, Dr. Tony Evans in his local church and national ministry. Together, they penned Get in the Game – a guide to religion as told through sports analogies! Jonathan has a masters degree in Christian Leadership and a very happy family of his own.
If you’re looking for a speaker with a connection to the world of sports and athleticism, then Jonathan Blake Evans is your guy. Regardless of the crowd though, his physicality is something that can benefit any audience and that only makes him all the more inspiring and commanding on stage.
Chris Swanson brings the drive, motivation and physicality of a sports coach to the world of Christian speakers.
