Ketric Newell: Speaking at Churches

Speaker Interviews

As communicators, we pour our hearts and minds into what we do.

We put ourselves out there – on stages, pages, and screens – in the service of others. We try not to hold anything back.

But what about our faith?

Is that something we need everyone to see from the stage or up on a screen? Are we hiding (or even lying) if we don’t talk about our faith as much as we talk about everything else? Is it important we share whatever faith or belief system we have, in whatever form we can, if we’re going to be true to ourselves and others?

Those are questions this episode’s guest has wrestled with for years in a variety of contexts. Former youth pastor turned nonprofit founder turned full-time speaker Ketric Newell has found some answers along the way. He’s also discovered some helpful questions that shape how he’s integrating his faith and work.
