“Kurtis is personable, approachable, and not afraid to be vulnerable, giving his audience permission to do the same. He is a truly gifted and skilled speaker.”

Scott Latham

Spiritual Director

“Kurtis’ ability to relate with an audience and meet them where they are is very rare indeed. He will make you laugh and think deeply in the same moment.”

Al Martin

Director, Texas Tech University Wesley Foundation

Having hired Kurtis and seen him speak numerous times, I know he puts in the extra effort to craft his message to ensure that each speaking engagement resonates deeply with his audience.

How Gratitude is Saving Our Brains and Our Souls

Neuroscience shows we are inclined to negativity. This practice will change that and bring greater peace.


Meet Kurtis

I am a terrible Christian. I love God, trust Jesus, and revere the Bible, but I often still find myself on the outskirts of real community, wondering if I really belong.


I am what’s referred to as a “Done.” There are 37 million more like me in America who love Jesus and long to change the world, but the church systems we’ve been given just don’t hold up for us. I want to reach out to others like me who have faith without a home. Together we can find a better way to more honest faith, deeper spiritual community, and a greater sense of purpose.
