We are thrilled to have Jefferson Bethke at Fluid 2015 as one of our main keynotes. We first got wind of Jeff when his youtube spoken word video “Why I Hate Religion But Love Jesus” went viral. But more than his talent for spoken word, we have been excited to see how God has gifted him with an amazing preaching and bible teaching gift and for that reason, we can’t wait to see him at Fluid this year.

Below, you can read a short bio about his life:

Jeff Bethke is a popular speaker, writer and New York Times bestselling author of the book “Jesus > Religion.” He has a compelling story of overcoming a painful childhood of poverty and a broken home, and this gives him a unique perspective on the grace of God and the work of Jesus in his life and the lives of others. It’s this perspective that has catapulted him into the national conversation regarding religion and spirituality, allowing his message to connect at a heart level with an audience ranging from atheists to nationally recognized religious leaders.
