Chad Williams is a former U.S. Navy SEAL, having served his country with distinction on SEAL Teams 1 and 7. While on active duty, March 14, 2007, Chad’s life was eternally changed as he apprehended the weaponized-message of the Gospel. A new man with a new mission, he understood that his future mission in life was to advance ground for God’s Kingdom. After completing 6 years of service, Chad went on to author the best-selling book SEAL of God (over 100,000 copies in print). Today, Chad has spoken at over 300 faith-based events, fortune 500 companies, and contributes expert analysis related to military affairs for major news networks.
Chad's deepest passion and desire in life is to communicate the life-changing message of the Gospel by drawing from his experiences in the SEAL Teams on and off the battlefield, to convey overcoming a lack of purpose, hope and meaninglessness. Chad has a unique ability of passing on to others a deeper understanding and appreciation for our soldiers who have shed their blood for our earthly freedom; and most of all, the Savior who shed His blood for our eternal freedom.
"God shapes his men with the hammer of adversity and the chisel of discipline. You will be riveted by Chad’s amazing story." –Greg Laurie, Lead Pastor Harvest Christian Fellowship.
Dr. Robert Jeffress, Lead Pastor of First Baptist Dallas has said, "Every year we select a special guest speaker who models both a love for God and a love for our great country; and we could not have selected a better guest … He’s got a compelling story, he is one of the very few people I want to hear a second time!"
