To know and follow

Jesus Christ

Adrian Despres combines passion, intellect, and wit as he urges audiences — especially high school, college, and young adults — to pursue their highest calling: to know and follow Jesus Christ wholeheartedly.

A gifted Forge speaker, he delivers inspiring and challenging messages to reach those who are spiritually lost and in need of God—and likewise to engage those who are believers and in need of revival for a fully surrendered life.
