2019 Retreat Speaker will be
Chris Mueller is a nationally sought after Catholic speaker from Murrieta, CA. Each year he speaks to thousands of people all over North America. Chris is a member of the ministry team for the Steubenville Youth Conferences. He crafts dynamic talks that communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ in a way that resonates with the teen and adult audiences alike.
In addition to Chris' speaking ministry, for over 15 years he has been serving teens and families as a parish youth minister. For the last 12 of those years, he has served as the Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry at Saint Martha, in Murrieta CA.
Chris Mueller is a true talent. He brings knowledge, depth, Catholic orthodoxy and passion to every presentation. In a culture where attention spans continue to dwindle and truth is often watered down, it's vital to have speakers who know how to engage an audience with truth in a way that lasts...Chris knows how to do just that.
