“Striving to fully believe, live, and share the Truth, without compromise.”
Jim Havens is a Catholic man, striving to answer the call to holiness, fulfill his vocation as husband and father to the full, and build up the Kingdom of God, one act of real love at a time (even if it means flipping a table or two – beginning within his own heart and mind). This website is meant to be a resource and portal to learn more about him, his good work, and book him as a speaker for your next event.
I am convinced and convicted that Jesus and His Catholic Church are the real deal – the Treasure hidden in the field worth giving everything for (Matthew 13:44).
By God’s grace, my will is to go deeper into the Treasure and grow stronger in a life of authentic prayer and virtue…like the tree planted near streams of water (Psalm 1:3).
My desire is to simply and authentically love well, both God and others, especially my wife, and with her, our children entrusted to our care. I offer any gifts, skills, or abilities I may have back to Almighty God that He might use me in any way He sees fit to build His Kingdom (Isaiah 57:14; Matthew 6:33) and glorify His name (Psalm 115:1).
My educational background is in media and theology: B.A. Media Studies, M.F.A. Screenwriting, M.A. Theology and Christian Ministry (Franciscan University 2006).
After a truly miraculous conversion and return to the Sacramental life of the Catholic Church in 2001 at the age of 24, I have served ever since, in Catholic parishes, schools, and organizations, as well as being active in pro-life work since 2002 and Catholic media since 2008.
Major themes of my work have been:
- Building up men, especially husbands and fathers.
- Forming young people, parents, and families.
- Effective action toward ending abortion and serving pregnant moms in need.
- Teaching the virtue of chastity/sexual integrity.
- Evangelization and community outreach.
- Sharing helpful, practical examples from the lives of the Saints.
- Catechesis and prayer.
- Spiritual warfare.
- Sharing personal testimony.
It seems clear to me that we are in a time of great deception where the vast majority, including leaders of Church and State, “call evil good and good evil (Isaiah. 5:20).” This is most evident in the ongoing, daily mass murder of the pre-born that kills 200,000 human persons worldwide every day and the attitudes surrounding it. We must wake up and see reality on this, and so much more.
