Here is a partial list of talks, more can be provided:
- "God Saved Me From Porn Addicton"
- In this talk Joe shares how Jesus, through the intercession of his patron saint, saved him and his family from a life of pornography addiction, abortion, selfishness and more. God was not willing to allow Joe to die on the battlefield of life, so he paid him a vist one spring day in 2002. This event changed Joe's life forever. In fact, it literlay saved the lives of his children and is the very reason why Joe has become a full time Catholic evangelist, shareing the Good News of what God has done form him. This talk is not just Joe's story but, rather it is the story of every man who carries with them the wounds of their broken childhood and broken families. This is a story of great hope and redemption... it is the gift of freedom from our sins and freedom from our past, for we are a new creation in Christ.
- "Taking The Hill for God and Country"
- Stemming the tide of secularism and conquering the culture for Christ!” St. Padre Pio once wrote, “Who will ever separate or extinguish the fire that burns for You in my breast with such bright flames!” The world wants to burn… it deeply desires to lust after its disordered passions. The only remedy to a burning world, is a burning heart for Christ! In this talk Joe recounts the call of every man to "stand in the gap" and bring Christ to a world so in need of him. This a truly motivating and envigorating talk, recounting the heroic deeds of saints and sinners a like.
- "Your Call to Heroic Leadership"
- In this talk Joe dives into the call of man to heroic leadership by virtue of who we are as a sons of the Most High God. Using the phenomenal life of St. Maximilian Kolbe as our guide, we delve into the incredible opportunity we have as men to live up to who we were created to be, who we are… not as who the world tells us we are. The days are growing darker, and the need for true men of God to lead the way is upon us. If we want to raise awesome kids then we must first be awesome husbands and fathers. This talk is by design one of three on the role of men as leader, protector and provider.
Some of Joe's other favoriate topics include:
- Mary & the Saints
Praise for Joe from event orginizers:
“Whether delivering it in front of nearly 3,000 men at our annual conference or 50 at one of our leadership retreats, Joe’s passionate, deeply personal, brutally honest testimony goes straight to the hearts of our guys and leaves them pumped to embrace the cross and give their lives to Christ. Joe doesn’t just talk about transformation through repentance, grace and the pursuit of holiness, he lives it. Few speakers I’ve seen are as effective at inspiring men to do the same.”
Kevin O’Brien, President of the “Men of Christ”
“Joe McClane is a great story teller! The best speakers I know are great story tellers. Joe knows how to keep his audience engaged through poignant and relevant stories to the theme and points he is trying to convey. His ability to communicate a strong message through stories is a rare quality in speakers today. I highly recommend Joe McClane for any men’s conference, workshop and evangelization program. “
