CRAIG GROESCHEL SAYS BOOK SPRAD NOW!
A NOTE FROM SPRAD…
Thanks for taking a second and checking out my speaking page. I believe that the speaker you bring in for your next event is critical to the success of that event. If you book the right speaker people will be inspired, moved and transformed! If you book the wrong speaker people will be bored, get up and leave, you will become depressed, lose your job, become homeless and you will become a dog food tester for Purina Dog Chow. If you don’t want to become a dog food tester for Purina Dog Chow, you better book the right speaker!
GOT QUESTIONS? WE GOT ANSWERS!
The topics below will give you an overview of what I have to offer and answer any questions you might have.
THE 411 ON ME
I have been speaking for 20 plus years and love having the opportunity to speak into families all over the planet. My speaking career launched in high school and I have had the opportunity to speak to groups of 30 people as well as 35,000 people.
I have spent most of my career pastoring and speaking in the church world, working with churches in Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma and Phoenix. My most notable and life changing work experience has been with Edmond, Oklahoma based LifeChurch.tv where I had the awesome privilege of being a pastor as well as team teacher with Craig Groeschel.
I now devote most of my time to writing and speaking. I can be found writing here at EpicParent.tv, as well as contributing to other blogs and publications. I can also be found speaking at youth camps, womens’ events, mens’ retreats, family weekends, conferences and churches all over the country.
I have been married to Jodie, the hottest one legged chic (my wife lost her leg to a drunk driver when she was 16) on the planet! Jodie and I have been radically obedient to God’s command “to be fruitful and multiply” and we have had three kiddos, Cole (Coletrain) Spradlin, Kylie (Goose) Spradlin and Tifton (The Jackhammer) Spradlin. You can call us Team Sprad! TS loves to snowboard, fly fish, ride dirt bikes and watch Napoleon Dynamite.
STUFF I SPEAK ON
EpicParent Roadshow: Our mission at EpicParent.tv is to empower and unleash a new generation of parents. To fulfill God’s calling and our mission, we have created the EpicParent Roadshow. The goal of the EpicParent Roadshow is to give parents a funny, gut busting, inspiring, Jesus centered, challenging, raw, honest, creative, offensive (I have to get your attention somehow!) experience that will change their families lives! For more information on specific topics and information on the EpicParent Roadshow, you can contact me HERE for more information.
Youth Camp: 60% of kids are walking away from Jesus when they graduate from high school. This statistic is sad, disgusting and I am committed to reversing this curse. When speaking at camps, your kids laugh so hard they cry then I will hit them square in the nose with God’s truth. For more information on specific topics and information on speaking to students, you can contact me HERE.
Womens’ Events: Over the past few years I have had the awesome opportunity to speak into the lives of moms and women. I specifically love to speak to women using Psalms 139, encouraging women to remember where they have come from, to remember that God designed their DNA and to remember they are fearfully and wonderfully made. For more information on specific topics and information on speaking at womens’ events, you can contact me HERE.
Mens’ Events: I absolutely love encouraging, challenging, loving on, beating on and telling men it’s time to MAN UP! I will bring a gut level honest, deal with the issues head on approach to your mens’ event. I specifically love to speak to men on pornography, spiritual apathy, dis-contentedness, spiritual leadership, fatherhood and 3 things that will take every man out. For more information on specific topics and information on speaking at mens’ events, you can contact me HERE.
Church Services: I have been speaking in churches of all sizes for years and would love the opportunity to tag team a series with you or do an entire series for your church. I have parenting talks such as “The 5 promises of an EpicParent” that deal with tough parenting issues in a head on, Biblical way. For more information on specific topics and information on speaking at your church, you can contact me HERE. If you would like to see my archive of parent focused and non-parent focused messages, you can view them HERE.
Conferences: Depending on availability, I would love to do a workshop or speak on the main stage of your conference. I have given several talks on the following subjects: “Your kids and sex”, “Lust, Sex & XXX”, “Your kids and Facebook” and “Workaholics in the name of Jesus”, just to name a few. For more information on specific topics and information on speaking at your conference, you can contact me HERE.

Chris is a powerful communicator that makes you want to sit still and hear more. He speaks with a clear voice and is not afraid to challenge his audience. Unlike most speakers who are out of touch with todays internet and socially networked generation, Chris gets it. We need more communicators like Chris who are young and know the challenges of parenting technology savvy kids
- Matthew Myers
Co-Founder, The GiANT Companies
As a communicator Chris possesses the very unique ability to effectively speak into kids and parents lives equally. His dynamic, no nonsense, down to earth,(and hilarious) approach disarms an audience and then builds up, inspiring us all to want be the Epic Parent God wants us to be. With Chris’ insights, and motivation, becoming that Epic Parent actually seems within reach. I often think of him as this new generation’s James Dobson, and as such, I personally seek his relevant wisdom in parenting my own family – I could not recommend my friend, Chris Spradlin highly enough to speak into the lives of today’s families.”
- Robert Beeson
Founder, Chief Creative Officer, iShine
Chris Spradlin’s authentic, humorous, and culturally relevant style is one of a kind. In 20 years of ministry I have never seen someone capture an audience like he does. Your investment in Chris will be priceless. Prepare to be shaken, stirred, and ready to create change in your life and the lives of others after hearing Chris Spradlin.
- Carey C. Bailey
Family Life Director, Radiant Church
Author of Cravings: desiring God in the midst of motherhood
Watching a variety of camp speakers over the years very few balance the ability of communicating on stage and engaging the audience off of it. Chris brought youth and youth pastors to tears as he challenged teenagers to drop their masks and get real with Christ as well as sitting down with them throughout the week, one on one, and dealing with the issues the Lord had brought to the surface of their lives. We had never seen the response from our camp audience that we did the week Chris was there. He is the only camp speaker we have ever brought back 2 years in a row!
- Phil Scowden
Director, Encounter Camps
You will not be disappointed when you hear Chris Spradlin. He is down to earth and funny yet isn’t afraid to touch on subjects that are uncomfortable. He has an uncanny ability to speak effectively to 7 year olds, 17 year olds and 70 years olds. Chris is someone I admire and respect so much. He is the most intentional dad I know! His willingness to be honest and transparent will draw you to look inside yourself as well to see where God wants to change you.
- Cindy Beall
Writer, speaker and author of Healing Your Marriage When Trust is Broken
Chris communicates with transparency and authenticity. His stories will make you laugh, cry and change your family forever through the truth of God’s word. Chris’ ability to walk the talk and consistently make Godly decisions is reflected in his own family’s lives. He has a God-given gift to show you how to raise a world changer.
- Miles Paludan
Pastor at LifeChurch.tv
Chris Spradlin is REAL. Anytime I’ve had the opportunity to hear him speak, he easily draws me in and connects with me. His style, his language and his content are all incredibly relevant and engaging. As easy going and chill as he is, he never shies away from truly challenging the listener. You will be blessed by Chris and his teaching.
- Allyson Evans
NextGen Pastor at LifeChurch.tv
When Sprad speaks he engages you with humor and then brings the heat of truth. He loves the Lord and is passionate about parenting. Our church family LOVES when Chris is in the house because they know we’re going to hear the truth in an immediately applicable way. Always engaging, always ready, always focused on making better families. Chris is a great resource for churches who care about parents and the kids they lead.
