Speaking

My Speaking Page

I have been involved in family ministry at my church for the past 20 years. Here is the problem I ran into over and over again. I could not find anyone that could speak with clarity and authority on the topics I need speakers for including, camps, conferences, volunteer training and leadership development.
I believe today more than ever we need a clear gospel centered message in every area of church and para church ministry. I am passionate about building the local which I have the honor of helping to lead but would love the opportunity to help you grow as a leader and to help grow the leaders you lead.

Thanks so much for stopping by I am honored you would consider having me and would love to have the opportunity to serve you in any way that I can.

About Me

My name is Sam Luce and I have been the children’s pastor at Redeemer Church in Utica NY for the past 14 years. Currently I am serving as the Global pastor of families.

I write and speak about things I am passionate about, the power of the gospel, becoming a better leader, ministering to kids and youth, technology, humorous anything, and being the best dad and husband I can be.

My goal is to be to others what I wish I had when I was starting out in ministry. I desire to help you grow as a leader and avoid some of the bone headed mistakes I learned am still learning along the way.

I have served as the president of INCM, co-authored “The Eric Trap”,  have been involved in several book projects, and been blogging here since 2007. I have also spoken at conferences and have done some consulting and coaching. My real passion lies in preaching the gospel, building and strengthening the local church in any way possible because I believe in creating environments where life change can take place. I truly believe that the local church is the hope of the world.

I have been married to my beautiful wife for 19 years together we have 4 beautiful children ages 12, 10, 8 and 4. We currently live in Upstate New York.

Most Requested Topics

I speak on a variety of topics from practical how to’s workshops to inspiring keynotes. I am flexible in my presentation and my goal is to build my talks and messages in such a way that Christ is glorified and your event is successful.
