KEVIN DEVRIES is your next Inspirational Speaker. His epic, unforgettable story of redemption will change your life. While climbing five of the seven continental summits, skiing to the North Pole and searching for Noah's Ark as an intrepid explorer in the award-winning film: FINDING NOAH, Kevin endured divorce, bankruptcy and loss of home to reach the naked soul of man. As he groveled and grasped for glory in a futile attempt to escape pain, he climbed into "thin air" where eternity's weight thins time to heal trauma where the trail ends and Truth begins. Kevin can guide you to this true place unknown to any map except the heart. He'll help you discover the greatest journey is within because the greatest discovery is "Who finds you when you're looking for something else." Kevin sought the Ark to find the face of God. You'll be fascinated by what he's discovered for your own life. Be A Hero. Book Kevin to speak @ 

It is not down on any map; true places never are. - Herman Melville

Review Roy Abbott, President, Focal Point Ministries
Kevin led packed out workshops at two of our Iron Sharpens Iron men’s conferences this year. He poured his heart out to our men through his amazingly transparent testimony and story. Men came face-to-face with their own life struggles as Kevin shared openly about his personal journey of faith. He even went the extra mile and took time with each man who wanted to talk with him well after his session was over. Classy. I highly recommend Kevin as a speaker; I know that we will be inviting him back! - Roy Abbott, President, Focal Point Ministries
Review Darrel Billups, NCMM, Executive Director
I met Kevin DeVries during a special screening of the film “Finding Noah.” Since I have got to know Kevin and listen to his testimonial story, I have a greater appreciation of his humility and his love for Christ. He is authentic, vulnerable and his heart is to be so transparent that others see this transparency and want it for themselves. At every venue Kevin speaks, he touches men’s lives and fills the room. It is a reality check for men in the world we live in today.- Darrel Billups, Th.D., NCMM, Executive Director, National Coalition of Ministries to Men
Review Brent Baum, Director/Producer, Finding Noah
Hollywood can make a real movie about men of faith. These are cool guys. They are incredible guys. Kevin DeVries…what a wonderful man. He has the heart of a lion. These are the men I want to share with America.- Brent Baum, Director/Producer, Finding Noah
Review Traylor Lovelorn, Life & Recovery Coach , Route 1520
One of the beautifully broken, Kevin DeVries’ authenticity and transparency inspires and convicts as he boldly shares Abba’s unconditional love with Pharisees and Prodigals alike. Of all of Kevin’s noble adventures, his journey into his own heart to face his own darkness is by far his most courageous. Along the way, Kevin drank deeply from the well of God’s scandalous grace and has learned to not hide his glorious limp. Kevin’s gift of articulating his journey calls to the heart of all men…wooing them to step into the darkness and embark upon their own adventure of knowing themselves. I’m a better man for knowing Kevin DeVries.- Traylor Lovelorn, Life & Recovery Coach , Route 1520
Review Kevin Miles, Founder, Go The Distance Ministries
I’ve seen Kevin DeVries at his best and at his worst. He came into our ministry hobbling and broken, and through the love of other men (none of whom he knew), helped carry his load until he miraculously found his footing underneath him and his voice again. Through that experience he was able to allow others to see a man rise from the ashes and find hope and a new message. Nothing is better than to see a man find the courage to walk into his darkness, find something glorious there, pick it up, hold it, and let Jesus re-craft it into a new and sturdy foundation. Kevin did that. But he didn’t go there by himself. He took us with him and we took him with us into our own darkness in order to find the rising sun. A real, raw, no-holds barred, non-judgmental community of ragamuffins for Christ helped Kevin DeVries find a way to connect to the hearts of others. We are so thrilled to have others hear his message of Grace.- Kevin Miles, Founder, Go The Distance Ministries
Review Holt Condren, Founder & Author, Surf The Woods
Kevin and I have survived many long, cold nights on Mount Ararat together. We forged a friendship while enduring challenges on that mountain that few will ever experience. His insight into God’s wonderful gift of grace was just the right prescription for me as I walked through a dark point in my life. I have the highest regard for this man’s heart. If you’re looking for someone to speak hope and life into your men, Kevin DeVries is an excellent choice. His raw authenticity really connects.- Holt Condren, Founder & Author, Surf The Woods
Review Dr. Randall Price, Director, Center Judaic Studies, LU
Having worked closely with Kevin during our expeditions to Mt. Ararat in some of the most extreme environments and grueling conditions, I can testify that he is a superb servant-leader. When we ascended the mountain at night to 17,000 feet, Kevin led our group to the summit, encouraging us along the way by writing motivating messages ahead of us in the snow. Off the mountain, Kevin continued to exhibit a careful and compassionate spirit, directing our team to think spiritually and to trust in God’s greater purpose in all that we were doing. Despite some of the most difficult circumstances one can experience in this life, Kevin has maintained his courageous faith and been an inspiration to others. Kevin has my highest recommendation as a leader and motivator of men! - Randall Price, Ph.D., Executive Director, Center for Judaic Studies, Liberty University
Review Rocky Barra Jr., Worship/Arts Assoc, Slingshot Group
Kevin has faced physical, relational, financial and spiritual death….and came out on the other side knowing the love of Christ through great depths. Let him speak into your life and see what new adventures God brings your way!- Rocky Barra Jr., Worship & Arts Associate, Slingshot Group
Review Nate Elation, Lead Pastor, Compelled Church
We had Kevin speak at our men’s breakfast and two weekend services. He was such a blessing and each service was moving. I continue to hear fruit from his message that was honest, vulnerable and Spirit – anointed. One lady said to me that she knew we really did love single people and those single again because I had Kevin speak. Another man said for the first time since his divorce he sensed God’s love and freedom from guilt. I look forward to having Kevin again next year.- Nate Elation, Lead Pastor, Compelled Church
Review Mike Young, Executive Director, Noble Warriors
Kevin presented his workshop titled: Finding Noah – Finding Grace for a group of men at one of our recent Iron Sharpens Iron Conferences. The response was tremendous. One pastor said that Kevin had one of the most compelling testimonies he had ever heard following that with, “And I’ve heard a lot of testimonies!” Men were drawn to his life of adventure and his story. As a matter of fact, his room was still nearly full long after the time for the workshop was expired. When one man is willing to be transparent and vulnerable, other men are drawn to this and encouraged to wrestle with their own shortcomings. Kevin was able to help men get to that point. We’ll invite him back again. - Mike Young, Executive Director, Noble Warriors
Review Tom Smith, Senior Assoc Pastor, Res Life Church
Kevin spoke to our men’s group and did an amazing job connecting with our men. He is a very good communicator that speaks to the heart. Kevin has experienced and accomplished things that most men only dream of. I have known Kevin for several years. I personally enjoy hearing about his experiences and his journey which continues. I highly recommend Kevin as a speaker. - Tom Smith, Senior Associate Pastor, Resurrection Life Church – Grandville
Review From Pablo Giacopelli
There are not many men out there that are willing and able to do what Kevin does so well which is to speak right into the heart of a person. He is a highly gifted communicator of truth. He has a way to make complicated things easy to understand. His vulnerability makes his message real and easy to relate with. When you invite Kevin to speak you are inviting much more than just another speaker. You are inviting a man that not only loves God but in many ways understands Him. He is that good. - Pablo Giacopelli Founder & Author The Zone Project
Review From Pastor Rocky Barra SR, Connection Church
We were very blessed to have Kevin DeVries on staff at our church for several years. Since then, he has encountered several lifetimes of experiences. When you think in terms of the “highs” and “lows” of life, Kevin has known both. He recently spoke at our men’s breakfast and really did an incredible job. Men of all ages were riveted to his every word. Kevin’s authenticity is as rare as the air he breathed on the mountains of Ararat. Kevin is an excellent communicator who is able to weave his personal experiences and Scripture together in a relevant way that connects with everyone in the room. God’s love and grace is very evident in both his words and his life. I highly recommend Kevin DeVries. Rocky Barra Sr. Lead Pastor Connection Church
Review from Benham Brothers
As former professional athletes and successful entrepreneurs that landed our own HGTV reality series, we understand to truly succeed one must first learn how to fail. Our friend, Kevin DeVries, believes that failing is not opposition but an opportunity to move forward. He’s faced his fears, died to his dreams and stood for Christ whatever the cost – and his life teaches us to fail forward so we don’t have to succeed backwards. If you want to climb higher than the false summit of a successful, shallow life towards the true summit of a significant, lasting legacy, Kevin DeVries is the spiritual guide who can lead you there.

Review Iron Sharpens Iron Men's Conf, Portsmouth, NH 4/30/16
"Your message was so abundant with His Life that I am still processing what you shared. I tried taking notes but surrendered to the Power of the Holy Spirit. Your message poured into me with such sweetness that all I could do was cry. I was so refreshed when I left, and brought this message home to my family. Kevin you are so gifted in communicating God’s perfect Love into another man’s heart."
