I’d love to connect via email. Please subscribe to my blog to receive a weekly post on life and leadership—most of my posts can read in a minute or less.
As your speaker I will give you my best effort. See me as a catalyst or facilitator that will help you achieve the goals you’ve set for your event. When you win, I win. It’s as simple as that. I’m here to serve you!
A venue for the event should be chosen with the target audience in mind. All-day or half-day workshops are ideally hosted in rooms where food can be served and participants can gather around tables for group dialogue and breakout sessions (click on links for preferred room setup: round/long tables). All venues should be suited for multi-media presentations and wired for sound.
Once a date and presentation topic have been confirmed for an event, the venue name and address along with a contact phone number should be submitted for advertisement purposes. I can provide advertising media for all events including online registration if needed.
A room featuring a multi-media projector with 3000 lumens or greater is preferred for all events. I will use my own projector when one is not available. Please note that for most presentations and workshops I need my laptop at the front of the venue from where I’ll be speaking. My system can accommodate VGA/HDMI cables. I can also supply an Apple TV for systems that require wireless projection from the front. Most of my presentations are designed for widescreen (16:9).
For audio I prefer a lapel or Countryman microphone. For presentation/video audio I can supply my own speaker for groups under 100 people. For larger groups I need a mic cord (to plug into my direct box) or an audio cable (3.5mm mini stereo) that plugs directly into my laptop.
Replace lecterns and pulpits with a small table or stand on which to place a laptop. Standard telescoping music stands are ideal.
For workshops, have a flip chart or white board available with markers in several colors.
An eight-foot table should be available on which to place books, CDs, DVDs, and other resources for sale. Cash, checks, and credit cards are all accepted.
I do not charge a set fee when speaking at non-profit events. However, donations are welcome to support my family and cover bills. The suggested donation amount is $500/day for each day I’m on the trip plus travel expenses. If I’m within a few hours of an event I will drive (suggested reimbursement of $250), otherwise, I typically fly (if within the USA, $500). I fly out of Chicago, IL and typically purchase my own tickets; a reimbursement check made out to “Luke Kuepfer” can be mailed to 725 Newgate Lane, Apartment C, Prospect Heights, IL 60070.
Originally from Ontario, Canada, I currently hail from Chicagoland, IL. My wife Amy is originally from Indiana, USA and we have three children—Brittany, Courtney, and Jamin. Brittany is married to Josiah Zimmerman, Courtney to Jevon Martin, and Jamin is dating Emma Kate Crouse.
I believe that as followers of Christ we are called to glorify God in all that we do. One way to do that is through serving leadership—leading, loving, and serving like Jesus. To ultimately serve others we must first serve our Audience of One—our heavenly Father—and, like Jesus, we must focus on the few to impact the many.
I served as Field Director for Global Tribes Outreach between 1997-2008, a non-profit organization in Southeast Asia I helped found back in 1995. Currently I serve as President of the Reverb Network which initiates serving leadership movements in North America and around the world.
My experience in missions mobilization, leadership training, and team development has taken me to four continents over the last 20 years. I have a Masters degree in Christian leadership from Asbury Seminary and speak, train, and coach in both business and non-profit spheres.
Having climbed 29 of Colorado’s 14,000 foot peaks, my family hopes to summit all 53 before my energy runs out.
I have heard from other staff members who agree with me, this was one of the best/productive workshops we've attended.
Your talk rocked my world.
Luke Kuepfer’s high-energy presentation of the material was delightful, articulate, and profound! If you are looking for a fresh and life-changing look at Jesus’ servant leadership model, look no further! Give Luke a call!
Luke is a dynamic speaker with the gift of clearly articulating Biblical truths in an easy-to-understand manner. He speaks in humility but with authority, and injects his message with the experience and global perspective gained from living abroad as a missionary for many years.
Luke’s enthusiasm and passion for the local church and its impact in the community is inspiring. I highly recommend his teaching and ministry!
“Transformational” is the one word I would use to describe the seminar. Luke has a true gift in communicating God’s truths with clarity and passion.
Luke is enthusiastic and knowledgeable, presenting the interactive material creatively. It is a unique presentation unlike the usual “leadership seminars” taught from the front. Luke presents it with expertise, fun, and interest in each attendee.
Luke really has an incredible way of captivating everyone’s attention and making a seminar meaningful. He speaks from his heart and lives what he preaches. As a result of this Encounter we’re taking our family to Southeast Asia on a two-month mission trip with the possibility of moving there long-term.
