Chip is available as a speaker at churches, conferences, seminars, retreats, camps, universities, seminaries, and other venues. His ministry focuses significantly on spiritual revival and renewal that naturally leads to missions and evangelism across the world and across the street.
“I believe,” he says, “that the greatest hindrance to world missions and evangelism today is a lack of spiritual reality and authenticity in the lives of Christians which leads to confusion, disillusionment, and complacency. I also believe that the greatest motivation for evangelism and world missions is for Christians to embody a passionate, authentic, and holy love for Jesus Christ. A Christian embracing that intimacy and reality in Christ will not have to be pushed, prodded, or manipulated into sharing his or her faith. It will be a natural overflow of God’s love for, in and through them. The only way to stop such a follower of Christ is to kill them, and that would be gain.”
There is no formula or “three easy steps” to fleshing out an authentic and fulfilling Christian faith and life. However, Chip uses the acronym P.O.W.E.R. to present five solidly biblical and intensely practical truths that can be implemented into one’s everyday hustle and bustle of life. This teaching series can be presented in a few sessions or over a period of five days. The depth and intensity of the teaching will be determined by the number of sessions taught.
Many people who won’t give a preacher the time of day will eat out of the hand of a ventriloquist. There is just something about that little man up there jabbering away without that other guy’s lips moving that intrigues audiences of all ages. Chip & his ventriloquist figures (dummies) present orthodox truth in some rather unorthodox ways combining belly laughs with Bible learning. It’s not just for little kids, but for kids of all ages. Although Chip’s primary focus is preaching the Word, he uses his vent figures to illustrate biblical truth in ways that are fun and not easily forgotten.
Focusing Your Relational Skills: A Temperament Study & Seminar
Chip is the co-author and teacher of Focusing Your Relational Skills, a temperament and personality discovery tool that will help you learn more about yourself, others, and why we act the way we do. Fun and interactive, this seminar will help you gain more freedom to be who God created you to be without feeling inferior or inadequate about yourself, frustrated with others, or just plain confused about why people are so different from each other. Whether you need help relating to your spouse, your kids, your boss, your co-workers or yourself, Focusing Your Relational Skills will be a valuable tool in building practical skills for better relationships. Chip can present this seminar by itself or incorporate it into a weekend or week of other meetings.
The above is just a part of Chip's ministry. Chip's desire is to be available for God to use him in any way, at any place and at any time for His own glory.
