About the Speaker

Pastor Doug Batchelor

As the son of an aviation tycoon father and show business mother, Doug Batchelor had everything money could buy—except peace and happiness. He fought at school, entertained suicidal fantasies, and eventually ran away from home at just 15 years old.

Disgusted with life and convinced it had no real meaning, Doug was determined to experience life with reckless abandon. He turned to drugs, committed crimes, and spent time in jail, while also living on high adventure from stormy seas to blistering deserts. But years later, a remote cave high in the mountains above Palm Springs, California became his home. And even though his father owned a yacht and private jet, Doug found himself scavenging for food in garbage bins.

One day he found a dust-covered Bible someone had left in his cave. As he read, he believed in and accepted Christ as his Savior, beginning a process of finding the peace and happiness he had been searching for all those years. You can read more about his remarkable story in the book The Richest Caveman.

Today, Pastor Doug is an energetic speaker of vision and deep spirituality, with an unusual ability to communicate not only to church-oriented people, but also the secular-minded. His spontaneous, lively humor and down-to-earth approach to living the Christian life engages and reaches hearts in a way that few others do.
