I know this guy Chris Padgett. Exceptional man. Father, student, teacher, musician, writer, promoter of truth, street philosopher, example of sanctity, and lover of life and all that is good. He was also a welcome visitor to our home. He is highly recommended on all levels.
Chris has the gift of being able to engage any audience, from middle school youth to grown adults. He connects with them, makes them laugh, and inspires each person to seek a deeper relationship with God, family, and friends.
As a speaker, Chris Padgett brings great energy, humor, passion and love for God, the Catholic Church, family and young people. He makes it very hard to sit and listen “with a holy stare.” He has a zeal to help people connect with God and it comes across so clearly. He’s done the work to study theology and his creativity in helping making that come alive for people is impressive.
One of the finest qualities about Chris’ speaking is that he shares from his heart. The passion for Jesus Christ that you see from the stage, is the same passion and love he has for Jesus when he is living his daily life with his family. Chris loves Jesus and is living what he proclaims! This reality makes an incredible impact on the way he present’s God’s love.
Chris Padgett is hands down the best Catholic speaker I’ve ever heard. He’s funny, engaging, and semi-good looking.

Chris Padgett is wildly entertaining, deeply inspirational, and completely faithful to the Church. While some people are blessed with a profound understanding of the Catholic faith, and others are gifted in their ability to connect with today’s teens, Chris merges both of these traits seamlessly.

We are constantly seeking speakers that can reach a unique audience with a profound message. Our campers are ages 7-17 and are looking for fun and to be moved. Chris is someone I’ve known for a while, and we were impressed. His music great, and his stories/witness are entertaining. He chooses to be Christ to each person he meets. His joy, humor and sense of friendship he creates is contagious and exemplifies what we look for in a speaker, MC, and musician to work with kids. He’s just as comfortable with our 7-8 year olds as he is with our college staff. Let him help your ministry take off by lighting a fire into your youth ministry.
