I speak as an interim preacher for churches in transition as well as at special events for churches, groups, businesses, and other organizations. I also do consulting for churches and leadership groups in the area of organizational wisdom and I coach speakers wanting to improve the quality of their presentations. If you’d like to schedule me to speak or would like to visit about a possible consultation, you can contact me at wadehodgesATgmail.com.
I have known Wade since he was a graduate student at Abilene Christian University. I have been on staff with him at a church he led, and since have gone on to be on staff at other churches. To give context to what I am about to say about Wade’s ministry, let me tell anyone reading this that I have worked in churches ranging in attendance from 100 to thousands. In that time, I have also had the opportunity to speak at a Willow Creek Arts Conference and have traveled across the country to both attend and do ministry at churches of all sizes and flavors.
In that time, I have yet to be as wholly engaged during a worship service through teaching/preaching as I have been through Wade Hodges. If your church has a need for a guest speaker in your pulpit, whether for one worship experience or a series of them, you will be bringing an anointed, passionate, effective, relevant, and (most importantly) biblical teacher in Wade. I love him as a friend, but routinely find myself in awe of him as a teacher, preacher, communicator, and storyteller.
Your church or ministry would be blessed and left seeking more of the Gospel because of what God chooses to graciously do through Wade Hodges.
Worship Arts Pastor, Memorial Bible Church
Wade has the God-given ability to see His story in your story. Through expository preaching, narrative story-telling and rich humor during our weekend together, he brought to life themes that united, challenged and empowered our leaders from around the United States. As we send these workers out around the world this year, I am more confident than ever that the equipping they received from Wade during our training time together will provide a depth to their work that we have not seen before. I’m excited to see the fingerprints of Wade on our ministry and I look forward to seeing how God will next use him to better equip us.

Wade is a terrific speaker and I would recommend him for any event that you are putting on. He helped us to hear stories that we have heard thousands of times in new ways. You will be blessed by his wisdom!
Director, Risen Conference
Los Angeles, California
We were blessed to have Wade lead a weekend men’s conference at our church. Wade’s subtle humor, insight into the biblical text, and practical concern for the church in our age is refreshing in a day of constant pessimism about the future of church in North America. He’s an engaging leader and our men were deeply impacted by his lessons and leadership. I would recommend Wade to any group that deeply desires to rethink what it means to be church in the 21st century!
