glory stories.

“Joel Stepanek is an enthusiastic, spirit filled speaker. His faithfulness permeates his presentation and is preceded by a great sense of humor to put the audience at ease and invite them into the conversation. Joel’s knowledge and passion combine to create an encounter with Jesus Christ that is irresistible to the listener.  Joel is relevant and engaging to all ages, but his specialty is teens and our teens loved him.  We have already scheduled a date with him for next year.”

Tina Burtch, Director of Confirmation and High School Youth Ministry

“Joel’s professional courtesy and communication before our retreat was stellar! He continually sought ways to weave our vision and content into his presentations. During the weekend he did not disappoint bringing in humor,and relevant stories all while illuminating light on the often complex teachings of St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body.”

Andrew Brown, Youth Minister

“Joel gave an excellent mens session and his talk during entertainment was wonderful. Learned so much from him.”
