Travels from Kansas City, Wichita, Kansas

Braden's passion is to awaken heart to Christ. He lived out this passion working in college campus ministry, and now through full-time speaking at conferences, schools, and parishes all around the country. In a few short years he has become on one of the most sought after young speakers as he works to create a culture of fully alive missionary disciples. 

Braden grew up in Kansas playing competitive basketball, doing semi-professional singing, and making content with famous social media influencers. During his freshman year of college, he had a big conversion as he discovered that the fulfillment he longed for could only be found in Christ. His passion is now to help others discover the abundant life that Jesus offers. Working in college campus ministry gave Braden an opportunity to walk with people in their faith journey while also building a community that draws people towards God.

The focus of Braden's ministry efforts is to create a culture of fully alive missionary disciples. He is given opportunities to speak at conferences, schools, and parishes all over the country with an intentionality on helping each group build a strong faith culture that has a lasting impact.  There are all types of groups that are having Braden speak such as youth conferences/rallies, parent talks, adult and mens conferences, Newman centers, etc. 

Listed below are a few of the talk topics that he commonly offers. He always tries to uniquely prepare every talk to fit the specific needs of each group. It is also possible for Braden to speak on other subjects when asked. 

1. Chastity, Romance, and Relationships

2. Fulfillment Found In Christ

3. Our Call To Mission

4. Authentic Masculinity

5. Understanding The Hearts of Young People (Parent Presentation)

5. Sacrament Preparation (ie. Confirmation, the Eucharist, etc.)



"Braden is a talented, faith-filled, and very effective speaker. He has a wonderfully natural style, perfect not only for youth groups, but for audiences of all ages." - Dr. Nikolaus Hohmann, College Professor & Member of  Eucharistic Revival Committee for Archdiocese of San Francisco

"Braden truly has a special talent in connecting with youth. He keeps them engaged and keeps them leaning in for more as he dives deeper into his talks! You can truly see his passion for the Lord, for youth ministry, and for his desire to create a culture of vivacious disciples! His excitement for the faith is truly contagious! I am blessed to have witnessed what an incredible gift God has bestowed on Braden, and would recommend him to speak at any youth event!" - Chandler Brown, Youth Director for St. Mary's Parish in Ponca City, OK

"Braden has such a gift with the way he interacts and speaks with the audience. He brings a much needed energy, perspective, and excitement to the Gospel message. Trust me, you will be glad you made him a part of your event!" - Jacob Scally, Lead Singer of the Scally Brothers Worship Band

"Braden has a lively and contagious spirit. He is effective in quickly winning young people's curiosity and then faithfully channeling this to the Lord where they meet God in a way that deepens their love and desire for Jesus." - Fr. Michael Kerschen, Priest for Diocese of Wichita

"Braden was such a blessing to the success of our retreat! He led a powerful talk on Jesus Christ, sharing his personal testimony with Jesus and His love for each of us. He was very present to each of our students on the retreat, really immersing himself with each person on the retreat. He immersed by sharing meals with us, lending a helping hand anywhere and everywhere he saw a need, offering his music talents where needed, and joining in playing pick-up volleyball with the students when we had down time. Not to mention, offering his talents to creating an even more beautiful lighting to accentuate the already beautiful Adoration of our Lord. He is so personable, understanding, easy to work with, attentive, and inclusive (the list could go on). He truly exemplifies what it means to be a Christian—a Christ bearer—to all he encounters." - Amelia Bordelon, Director of Campus Ministry for the Diocese of Alexandria

"Braden was able to connect and relate with our high school students from the moment he spoke and shared his faith from the heart. The students loved him and asked for him to come back and speak at our retreats where he was able to build relationships and lead students to Christ." - Marcos Villalba, Theology Teacher at Loyola College Prep in Shreveport, LA
