More About Julie Buchtenkirch

Taking the eternal truths in God’s word and sharing personal stories sprinkled with humor, Julie ignites people’s passion for a Christ centered life, reminding them that  freedom, hope and joy are always within reach.

(Official boring stuff)

Julie currently serves on the Teaching Team at Crosspoint Church (Fishers, IN) and speaks on Sunday mornings on a regular basis. With a degree in Communications, Julie’s previous radio experience has opened many doors and opportunities from teaching at a Christian Radio Convention to speaking at a Women’s Prison Chapel.  Before moving to Indiana, Julie served as the Director of Women’s Ministries for Bayside of Lincoln in California.

(Official fun facts)

I’m not a coffee snob, if it technically qualifies as coffee, I’ll drink it.

I have too many ideas and not enough time.

I once sat on an appetizer table dressed as a mermaid for a Private Country Club function.


And a little more information about me:

I’m married to my college sweetheart and we’ve seen our share of ups and downs. We currently live in Indianapolis but have former addresses in Virginia, Illinois and California. I’d follow him anywhere…he’s my plumb line and tells me I’m not crazy. (Every creative type person needs someone like that!).

Being a wife and mothering my two children, Evan and Olivia, are my most important callings. They keep me running and laughing. And when I say running, it's figurative.  I don' t run. Ever. The laughing part, that's real, I can do that. :)

Last but not least, we have a furry beast named Zack who will drink your coffee if given the chance.

Thanks for reading.  I appreciate your consideration.

Abby Taylor, Women's Ministry member

Julie spoke at our women's Christmas dinner and did an absolutely wonderful job. She was fun, engaging and down to earth and did a great job connecting with the ladies in attendance. I gave her a topic and she connected it to the Christmas story and helped us view ways to put the theme, Pray, Wait, Trust into action in our daily lives. We would highly recommend Julie for your next event.

Julie was a heart-warming, humorous, and poignant speaker. She covered the right combination of depth and breadth of information for our moms group about strong marriages. The acronym she gave us was made up of words and phrases that help recall lasting images and messages of how to nurture your marriage. I know she personally reached me with many aspects of her speech. We would have her back again any time!

Julie was great! She worked with us from the very beginning of our retreat planning, as we developed our theme (Taking Off the Mask), all the way through to the three sessions in which she spoke. She spoke once on Friday evening and twice on Saturday. She was very well prepared, kept in good contact with us through the process, and presented her teaching with Scripture and personal stories. She was authentic; we got so many positive comments from the women who attended our retreat. She researched the topic, provided resources and prepared discussion questions for our "table talk" time. She related well to all the women and spent a good deal of time listening and talking with individual women. We highly recommend Julie as a retreat speaker.

Julie recently spoke at our Mother/Daughter camp and was a joy to have. She was well prepared and took time to get to know the campers when she wasn’t leading a lesson. She related well to all ages and I look forward to using her in the future.

Diana Williams, Women’s Ministry Coordinator

As the keynote speaker at our Women’s Tea, Julie shared Biblical truths in order to flourish in our walk with Christ. Her honesty and clarity, combined with warmth and enthusiasm, have given our Women’s Ministry the boost it needed in order to revitalize our passion to serve and impact our community. We would highly recommend Julie to share solid teaching to inspire your women’s group as well.

We invited Julie to speak at our annual Celebration of Women dinner. We were not disappointed. We just told Julie what our theme was and she took it from there. I would highly recommend Julie!
