Christopher Heuertz is Michael’s special guest for the next two podcasts. In addition to being an author and speaker, Chris describes himself as a contemplative activist, ecclesial provocateur, curator of unlikely friendships, instigator for good, witness to hope, and clergy for common people.
Chris has spent his life bearing witness to the possibility of hope in a world that has legitimate reasons to question God’s goodness. Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, Chris studied at Asbury University in Kentucky before moving to India where he was mentored by Mother Teresa for three years. While living in India, he helped launch South Asia’s first pediatric AIDS care home–creating a safe haven for children impacted by the global pandemic.
His vocation has taken him to over 70 countries working among the most vulnerable of the world’s poor. In 2012, he and his wife Phileena launched Gravity, a Center for Contemplative Activism. Find our more about Christopher Heuertz here
