Anniston, AL – Jon J. Cardwell, a disabled veteran and former Navy Chief Petty Officer and deep sea diver, motivational speaker, business leader, experienced copywriter, and best selling author today, continues to earn a name for himself as an enchanting, entertaining, and moving motivational speaker with real-life examples and past stories that keep the audience hooked from start to finish.

Sitting atop a life that is anything but ordinary, Cardwell brings his quirky tales, like kickboxing in Southeast Asia during the Navy and eating seal liver with Yup’ik natives in Alaska, to the forefront of his motivational speaking topics.

“I’ve seen my fair share of the world, and now I am motivated to climb to the top of the U.S. motivational speaking ranks by drawing on my experiences,” said Cardwell. “As someone who has been publicly speaking and preaching, as well as shouting, to seasoned diving teams and church congregations for over 20-years, I am ready to transfer my public experience into the motivational speaking industry.”

Cardwell received the call to minister in 1993, and began speaking, preaching, and teaching the Bible several times per week until 1999. During that time, he served in ministries, missions, and pastorates in the Philippines, as well as remote native villages in Alaska on the coast of the Bering Sea. Since 2009, he has been serving as the pastor of Sovereign Grace Baptist Church in Anniston, Alabama.

“Although I am a passionate and serious minister, eager to share the word of God with as many people as possible, I bring a comedic perspective to my motivational speaking that will leave audience members mesmerized and laughing until the end,” said Cardwell.

Today, Cardwell is also a life coach, business consultant, and publishing authority, working to help others fulfill their life’s dreams. He accepts Christian-speaking gigs, motivational speaking requires for business events and conferences, and keynote speaking positions for local and national functions.
