Need a speaker for your next event? We’re booking speaking engagements for church and ministry events. (Due to COVID-19, we are only tentatively booking in-person speaking engagements for events based on the recommendations as issued by the CDC and our government officials. However, we are also available for virtual events which saves 50% in speaker costs.)
Julia Bruce is an engaging and interactive speaker, CEO of Wellspring Christian Ministries, and author of God, Love, and Marshmallow Wars.
Booking speaking engagements for virtual events
COVID has created a new “normal” for all of us. But that doesn’t mean we can stop growing as Christians or that social distancing breaks the community within the body of Christ. We can help you connect your church together through virtual events. Want more information on virtual events or booking speaking engagements for your church?? Fill out the form at the bottom of the page and our team will contact you.
Julia Bruce is founder and CEO of Wellspring Christian Ministries, a non-profit, 501c3 religious ministry focusing on bringing revival to America by renewing church leadership and redeeming Christian marriages. She is also the author of God, Love, and Marshmallow Wars, a book of 365 guided activities for couples to strengthen their marriage relationship and learn from the Bible God’s design for marriage.
Julia holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Master of Science in Professional Counseling. As a pastor’s daughter, she has grown up in church and she combines her educational background with her strong Biblical background to energize, encourage, and equip church leaders and couples to keep serving God.
As CEO of Wellspring Christian Ministries, her work includes:
Renewing church leadership through self-care and mental health coaching.
Recognizing that ministry of any kind is difficult work and a constant spiritual battle, self-care is important to keep our church and ministry leaders serving in the calling. Julia takes a Biblical approach to self-care and teaches ministry leaders to recognize the spiritual battles around them and the importance of self-care to help manage stress, burnout, and compassion fatigue. We’ll help your ministry staff and lay leaders understand the importance of practicing Biblical self-care.
As a mental health coach, Julia provides a listening ear and helps connect ministry leaders and couples to appropriate services, when needed. She is in process of receiving certification through the American Association of Christian Counselors as a Certified Mental Health Coach. We partner with pastors all over the U.S. to help them meet the mental health needs of their congregation and staff and there is 100% confidentiality.
Redeeming Christian marriages.
A vital step to seeing revival in America is to return God to the head of our homes. Julia helps couples learn their God-given roles in marriage and how God intended for the family to function, including having a personal relationship with Christ.
By redeeming Christian marriages, we can bring revival to America, one home at a time. Approaching revival from a family stance will see more children being raised in two-parent homes, less children in foster care, an increase in morals and integrity, and a decrease in crime, violence, and division.
Julia is also the Senior Director of Foster Care for Florida Baptist Children’s Homes dba One More Child. She started as an Adoption Specialist and was promoted to Director of Foster Care 18 months later and in August 2020 accepted the position as Senior Director of Foster Care. When she first started as Foster Care director, she had one staff and 28 foster homes in four counties. Since that time, she has grown her team to include 10 staff serving over 100 foster homes in eight counties.
Julia serves on the Board for Baymeadows Center for Hope and Healing and is currently writing curriculum for their ministry program.
Julia loves serving the Lord and joining Him wherever He is at work and calls her to go.
Coming Soon: “Help! No one said ministry was about spiritual battles and difficult people!”
Julia is finishing her second book, entitled: Help! No one said ministry was about spiritual battles and difficult people! In this book Julia uses her degrees in psychology and professional counseling to take a Biblical approach to self-care to help people serving in the ministry not burn-out, give-up, and walk away from the call God placed on their lives. Whether your ministry position is janitor, volunteer, or the senior pastor, this book will help you recognize the areas in your life that are depleted and need a little GLC (God’s Loving Care) so you can keep doing what God has called you to. You’re assignment in the Kingdom of God is vitally important! Keep an eye out for this book when it is released and see how Biblical self-care can keep you in the ministry to which you have been called.

This week’s new Christian Tees designs:
We all fight battles–relationship, financial, cancer, COVID, professional, educational and more. But no matter what the battle, it belongs to God. So, fight on your knees with your hands lifted high. (Based on the song, Battle Belongs, by Phil Wickham.)
For all the seniors celebrating graduation in a few months. Includes Jeremiah 29:11. If you have a senior graduating, this design makes a great gift.
New in the Teespring Store: The Prayer of Blessing
We’ve added a new canvas print to the Teespring Store.
God instructed the Israelite priests to pray the prayer of blessing every day over the people. The prayer is found in Numbers 6:24-26. Hang the canvass in your home or carry the mug, tote bag, or water bottle and let the prayer of blessing impact all those who you meet throughout the day.
We’ve also put this design on a poster, coffee mug, a stainless steel water bottle, phone cases, and a few other products.
Here are some of our favorite designs:
