Chad Williams is a former U.S. Navy SEAL, author of SEAL of God and Keynote Speaker.
Days before Chad was to report to military duty in Great Lakes, Illinois, he turned on a television and was shocked by the horrifying images of his close friend and 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 through to graduation, Chad served his country on the SEAL Teams for five years, completing tours of duty in the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Iraq.
Author of his best-selling book SEAL of God, Chad shares his journey through the grueling Naval Ops training and onto the streets of Iraq, where he witnessed the horrors of war up close. Chad shares his own radical conversion story.
Today Chad is an in demand keynote speaker and has been a featured guest on Fox News Channel, CNN News Room, Anderson Cooper 360, CBN, Daystar, TBN, TheBlaze TV, hundreds of churches services and special events across the nation. Drawing from his experience in the SEAL Teams Chad illustrates the price of freedom paid for in the blood of soldiers overseas and helps others understand the depths of Christ’s love and blood sacrifice that paid the price of our eternal freedom at the Cross of Calvary.
