Tal Prince brings his unique style and passionate inspiration throughout North America as he speaks on a variety of topics. He is a nationally recognized preacher and a creative and engaging communicator. Tal incorporates artistic elements such as music, video, humor, drama, and movie clips in his preaching and teaching. At the top of Tal's list of concerns is the plague of pornography, which he attacks with tenacity in multiple venues including conferences and seminars, radio and TV interviews, published articles, church pulpits, and one-on-one counseling. He is disarmingly transparent and uses his story to help others find freedom from addiction. He also is skilled at teaching parents how to protect their homes and children from a potentially dangerous online world.
Tal engages a host of other topics and has appeared at numerous Father and Son events, marriage weekends, youth events, on college campuses, and both men's and women's conferences. He regularly addresses pastors on these topics as well as how to communicate to the post-modern generations. Tal is also at home in the corporate setting as he administers the Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator and leads seminars and team building exercises.
During his own 24 year journey through addiction, Tal has learned a very powerful truth that shapes his entire message. Genuine transformation is an inside-out matter. It happens, he contends, at the intersection of truth and transparency. It is never solely about behavior modification. He preaches and practices this philosophy as director of Tapestry of Hope, a ministry in Birmingham, Alabama and as host of Tal Prince Live, a radio show on Sirius Satellite Radio's Family Net.
Tal grew up the son of a corporate executive whose job took his family all over the country. After graduating from Emory University with a degree in business management, he quickly worked his way up the corporate ladder, becoming the regional sales manager for Asia and the Pacific Rim for a major American industrial company. After 10 years in international business, he and his wife, Teresa, left the corporate world for full-time ministry. They moved to Birmingham to attend Beeson Divinity School. After receiving his Masters of Divinity he was hired as the Director of External Relations. He also served as the stage manager and assistant to Cliff Barrows and George Beverly Shea during the closing years of the Billy Graham Crusades. Tal and Teresa married in 1995, and they live in Birmingham, Alabama with their two daughters.
