There’s nothing like a great speaker to turn heads and really help you absorb the message they’re conveying. A strong voice, delivery, and unique style can transform a simple speech into a moving sermon. When it comes to the Word of God, you need that unique style and powerful approach to drive the point home and invoke goosebumps in the audience. Luckily, that’s just what you’ll get with this list of today’s top Christian speakers.
You don’t have to be a pastor to deliver a powerful message, and the people on this list are either pastors, religious officials or just everyday people with a story to tell and a love for God and his Word. Here are today’s top five Christian speakers.
Have you ever heard of Joel Osteen? Of course, you have. It would be nearly impossible to exist in the evangelical space and not hear of this man, whose audience numbers in the tens of millions on a weekly basis. As the head of Lakewood Church in Texas, Osteen has carved out a name for himself as both an influential pastor and motivational speaker.
He’s also the author of several books, of which many have reached the New York Times’ bestseller list. Osteen delivers his message in a friendly, concise, and firm way. You’ll understand exactly what he means, and when he gets riled up, the crowd follows suit. Osteen delivers a performance you won’t want to miss!

Samuel Rodriguez Jr sermons are truly one of a kind, and will leave you with an impassioned heart and a desire to serve God in every way possible. His friendly, upbeat delivery appeals to people of all ages, and he does a great job of leveling with the audience on terms that everyone can relate to.
Sam is a pastor, movie producer, author, and civil rights activist for Hispanic Americans. He’s also the head of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, which advocates for the rights of Hispanics in the US and the power of faith in the world today. Sam is one of the most widely-known pastors/speakers today because of his down-to-earth approach and best-selling books.
Appealing to audiences of thousands, and sporting millions of views on his official YouTube channel, the 51-year old pastor doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. He’s made it clear that he’s a servant of the Lamb’s agenda, as he put it on Twitter just a few days ago, and he’s determined to bring that viewpoint to anyone that will listen.
You can find his works on his website, official YouTube channel, or even at Pray.com’s Samuel Rodriguez Sermons Channel.
Bob Goff is one of those speakers you need to listen to at least once in your life. He delivers such a powerful message with the skill of a lawyer arguing a court case…probably because he is a lawyer. He’s also the author of the New York Times bestsellers, Love Does and Everybody, Always.
Goff not only offers his speaking skills to the world, but his website also features courses and he offers personal coaching for leaders and executives. Stuck on something important? Not sure where to go from here? Bob can help you analyze your life, what’s holding you back, and how to get where you want to be. All based on a message of faith, of course. Bob delivers it in such a way that you’ll feel your own faith rekindled, and an eagerness to serve God’s purpose.
Goff also has a new book available, called Dream Big. It’s geared towards anyone who’s looking for their purpose in life or isn’t sure how to reach their dreams.
Leah Darrow is probably about the last person you’d think to find on such a list, but her unique story makes her a speaker you don’t want to miss. Darrow began her modeling career and made it to the hit TV show, American’s Next Top Model. Somewhere along the way, she had an epiphany; she wasn’t using God’s gifts in the right way. She turned her life around, made important changes, and started writing and speaking for women everywhere.
Her message is loud and clear: women aren’t objects, and have every right to be inspired and do wonderful things with their lives. As a wife, mother, author, and speaker, Darrow has plenty of life experience and love for God to bring to her speeches and works.
The former NFL player Shawn Harper lends his talents to a new game: motivational speaking. Through faith and determination, Harper has become one of the best-known speakers in the business, and his message rings true in the hearts of thousands of followers.
After a diagnosis of five different disorders, Harper found the Word of God to be his comfort—a comfort he was determined to share with the rest of the world. With high energy, lots of faith, and an inspirational story as a base, Harper is one speaker you’ll want at your next event.
