If you are looking for a religious speaker to bring a faith-based perspective to the keynote address at your next event, Engage has a variety of speakers to cater to any audience. Take a look at the Top 5 Religious Speakers on Engage:

5. Ben Malcolmson

Ben Malcolmson is an author, speaker, and mentor figure who travels to share his story with anyone who wants to be inspired to discover their purpose. Currently, Malcolmson is the Special Assistant to Coach Pete Carroll for the Seattle Seahawks, a position he has held for the past eight years. As a student at USC and a reporter for the Daily Trojan, Malcolmson came into contact with Coach Carroll, but it wasn’t until three years later he accidentally earned a roster spot as a wide receiver on the 2006 Rose Bowl Champion football team. Following that season, Malcolmson became the Director of Online Media for USC Football, and springboarded from that position to the creator and manager of PeterCarroll.com, and a writer for Sports Illustrated. Malcolmson has gone on to work for the Associated Press, USA Today, and the Dallas Morning News, and he believes that it is only through God’s power that he was able to find his purpose. If you have an audience of young people, or those who are considering a career change, Malcolmson is the perfect speaker to bring a faith based approach to their experiences.

4. Chris Norton

Chris Norton is an incredibly popular keynote speaker, and it is not hard to imagine why given his amazing story of faith and perseverance. While playing college football, Norton suffered a spinal cord injury that caused him to lose all feeling and movement from the neck down. His prognosis was grim, and Norton was told that he only had a 3 percent chance of ever walking again. However, Norton put his faith to the test and leaned on his friends and family to overcome the greatest challenges of his life. Norton managed to prove them all wrong, and walked across the stage at his college graduation, the video of which went viral worldwide. Norton continued to take the seemingly impossible steps, waking 7 yards down the aisle of his wedding to his wife Emily. Since then, Norton has defied all of the odds as a foster parent to five adopted girls. His story, “7 Yards: Chris Norton Story,” is now out on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and AppleTV. His message about how to unlock the “Power to Stand,” will captivate your audience and leave them talking about your event for years to come.

3. Robb Thompson

Robb Thompson is a philanthropist and author, who believes that he was brought through his darkest days by God. After suffering with mental health issues throughout his youth, Thompson was placed in a mental institution, where literally overnight, God delivered him from his anguish. Through prayer, he was healed, so since then he has devoted his life to helping others in any way he can. Whether it is an issue in business, relationships, or finance, Thompson believes that he has been blessed to have the life experiences to assist others through any physical or mental pain they may face. His audiences feel powerfully connected to him through his transparency and his own stories which he shared, in order to bring others through their dark times. His audiences have been filled with entrepreneurs, senior executives, non-profit leaders, and ordinary people who have been touched by his message. Thompson has offered 20 best-selling books with the hope of sharing his stories and changing lives. Thompson’s kind heart and desire to make a difference will be felt by everyone in attendance at your next event.

2. Scott Highberger

Scott Highberger is the founder of Behind the Wire Ministries, which is a prison ministry that has reached thousands of prisoners across America. Highberger himself was a career criminal with thirty-five arrests, eight felony convictions, and five prison sentences on his record. Highberger spent a total of twenty-two years in prison, and it was there that he was able to surrender his heart to Christ and change his life. Highberger is the author of the book “Behind the Wire: A Prisoner's Journey to the Pulpit'', and the inspiration for a movie coming to theaters called, “Pardoned by Grace,” which tells the story of his life and his journey to his faith. Currently, Highberger and his wife Danielle are working with the entire Indiana Department of Correction, serving as prison pastors for Lighthouse ministries. Highberger has been at the lowest of lows, and it was finding Christ that brought him to where he is today. Higherberger’s story is sure to inspire anyone who hears it, making him the perfect speaker for your next event.

1. Marie-Christine Williams

Marie-Christine Williams is a survivor of the Rwanda Massacre. Currently, she is a speaker, author, and the founder of MCW Hope for Life. Williams' family were survivors of the Holocaust who had moved to Rwanda in order to start anew. However, the worst genocide in world history was about to take place in this new home, and at just the young age of 14, Williams was subjected to new horrors that no one who was not there would be able to imagine. Williams was able to survive the 100 Day Bloodbath in Kigali, Rwanda, and after 20 surgeries and years of healing, she has come through stronger and shares her story with the world. A firm believer in the fact that her trauma does not define her, she now does all that she can to bring hope to the hurting, so that they will be able to come through their trauma like she was able to. Given how far she has come, and all that she has been able to contribute to society after the incredible amount of pain she has experienced, Williams is just the right speaker to inspire people from all walks of life at your event.

Should I book a speaker for my event?

In today’s age, our attention span is dwindling. A technological era in which we can get rushes of dopamine to our brain in a couple seconds by scrolling on a variety of social media platforms has created an atmosphere where we quickly become uninterested by something if we are not immediately curious to hear more. In an event, this means being able to grab your audience’s attention immediately and pull them in, wanting to hear more. This is where hiring a speaker for an event comes into play. The speakers that are on Engage’s website are some of the most high-class, interesting stories you will ever hear. Engage has the stories and speakers that will hold your audience captive with interest.
