Jim VanSteenhouse

Keynote Speaker

In 2015 Jim VanSteenhouse was mauled by a grizzly bear.  As he laid, bleeding out and awaiting death, he cried out to Jesus.

Jim’s cries were heard, and miraculously, he survived.  Through his experience, Jim committed to inspire and encourage others all over the world to give their lives to Christ and through Him, overcome their “BEARS” and find their God given purpose on this planet.
