Keynote Speaker: Lisa Harper
Rarely are the terms hilarious storyteller and theological scholar used in the same sentence, much less used to describe the same person but then again, Lisa Harper is anything but stereotypical! She has been lauded as a gifted communicator, whose writing and speaking overflows with colorful pop culture references that connect the dots between the Bible era and modern life. Her style combines sound scriptural exposition with easy-to-relate to anecdotes and comedic wit.
Her vocational resume includes six years as the director of Focus on the Family’s national women’s ministry, followed by 6 years as the women’s ministry director at a large church in Nashville. Her academic resume includes a Masters of Theological Studies with honors from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis. Now a sought-after Bible teacher and speaker, Lisa speaks at many large multi-denominational events as well as at hundreds of churches all over the world.
She’s written ten books including A Perfect Mess: Why You Don’t Have To Worry About Being Good Enough For God and Stumbling Into Grace: Confessions of a Sometimes Spiritually Clumsy Woman. Lisa’s latest book (June 2017) is titled The Sacrament of Happy: What a Smiling God Brings to a Wounded World.
In spite of her credentials, the most noticeable thing about Lisa Harper is her authenticity. When recently asked about her accomplishments she responded with a grin saying, “I’m definitely grateful for the opportunities God’s given me; but don’t forget, He often uses donkeys and rocks!”
