Chris connects with any audience and provides stories, examples and “thoughts from the front lines” because he’s truly living out what he believes. We’ve had him speak at multiple catalyst events, and he delivers every time. I highly recommend you consider Chris!” –Brad Lomenick, Director of Catalyst

Chris Heuertz is one of the most thought-provoking communicators of our time. His humble posture towards life and his years of experience in human care offer a unique perspective that is both challenging and inspiring to audiences. Chris embodies hope that makes sense to our generation.” –Charles Lee, CEO of Ideation & Author of “Good Idea. Now what?”

In a world full of counterfeits, Chris Heuertz is the real deal. I’ve traveled with him in three countries and sat spellbound through several of his talks. Chris lives the type of life he promotes–compassionate, sacrificial, transformational–and he inspires all he touches. If you want an authentic and challenging speaker for your event, look no further than Chris Heuertz.” –Jonathan Merritt, Author of a Faith of our Own: Following Jesus Beyond the Culture
