About Chad Williams
Days before Chad Williams was to report to military duty in Great Lakes, Illinois, he turned on a television and was greeted with the horrifying images of his mentor, US Navy SEAL Scott Helvenston, being brutally murdered in a premeditated ambush on the roads of Fallujah, Iraq. Steeled in his resolve, Chad followed in Scott's footsteps and completed the US military's most difficult and grueling training to become a Navy SEAL. One of only 13 from a class of 173 to make it straight ...
When the leadership team at Journey Church was planning their first men's conference, they knew that the keynote speaker could make or break the event. Chad Williams clearly made our event great. His real life experience as a Navy Seal combined with his relevant preaching was a big win for the men. Chad isn't just a speaker that is great on stage. He took the time to personally interact and encourage the men he met with on an individual basis. Needless to say, Chad was a hit and a perfect fit for the conference.

I wanted to give you feedback regarding our speaker, Chad Williams at our annual Salvation Army luncheon. Chad is a great story teller weaving his journey of becoming a Navy Seal with the realization of his need for Christ. At times, his story was gripping and very thought provoking. We have received wonderful comments from all those in attendance. Thank you for such a wonderful recommendation.

Chad Williams did an outstanding job as our keynote speaker at our annual Fundraising luncheon. Chad established an immediate connection with the group of 430+ high level Orange County executives and delivered a riveting message that left the audience wanting more! Relating his real life experiences as a Navy Seal to the importance of training and leadership was spot on. We've received numerous positive comments from our guests and would highly recommend Chad to any organization looking for a speaker with an inspirational message.
Chad was a delight to work with. He spent time getting to know our organization and our students and he did an outstanding job personalizing his presentation to tie it into the KidWorks mission.
Chad is truly a gifted speaker -- one of the best we have had!

Chad Williams recently spoke at Gateway Church's annual Men's Conference and shared a powerful testimony about his experiences as a Navy SEAL. He hit it out of the park! The guys in the congregation were hanging on his every word. I highly recommend for Chad to come speak at your church or organization.

The speakers we've had at our annual Call of the Wild Sportsman's Dinner usually prompt the response, "He was a great speaker." This year, following the presentation of the gospel by former U.S. Navy SEAL Chad Williams, author of SEAL OF GOD, what I've heard from most is, "I don't see how you're going to be able to top that." Chad was engaging, humorous, energetic and had the crowd's full attention for the 35-40 minutes he spoke. It was the clearest, most sound presentation of the gospel I've heard from a speaker in years. That's what we wanted. He delivered.
