Speaker Josh Riebock at Crossroads Wednesday, Fuel Thursday

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

This Wednesday, October 8, Sterling College will welcome Josh Riebock as a chapel speaker. Josh Riebock is originally from the western suburbs of Chicago but currently calls Austin, Texas, home. He has been involved in youth ministry for ten years now, and speaks at churches, colleges, high schools, and camps across the U.S. John Burke, author of No Perfect People Allowed, says of him, “Josh is a gifted communicator and leader who knows how to make the message of Jesus connect with those who feel far from God, while challenging Christ followers to live passionately for God. I've seen how his story of authentic faith, forged in the fire of the trials of life, has inspired students and adults, regardless of where they are in their faith journey." Josh Riebock is also partnering with Baker Publishing Group, and his first book will be released in 2009. His Naked Faith Podcasts are available on Facebook, and his website, joshriebock.com, explains his passion for this generation, “I am a part of a broken generation, a generation hungry to see healing and a generation hungry to be healed. That's why I do this—that the lives of my generation, along with those we encounter, might be moved towards healing through the life God has for us.” He will be speaking at Sterling College’s chapel on Wednesday at 10 a.m. in Culbertson Hall and on Thursday at 9:30 p.m. at FUEL in Cornerstone in the Student Union.
