Blaine Bartel -14.jpg



Blaine is a resurrectionist.


The American culture is exhaling it’s final breath of utter discontent. It’s death grip of loneliness, lust, unhappiness, marital misery and career malaise is rampant.


He calls men and women out of death. Not funeral home death. Soul death.


Blaine’s life concepts are not fashionable, nor are they contrived. Because they are the hard and fast findings of thirty years of surviving — dying - and daring to live again.

His is a curious resume.

Provincial Judo champion at 14. Come on somebody.

Freestyle Skiing gold medalist at 17. Yea, he’ll show you the medal.

National television show by the time he was 26.

Built the largest weekly gathering of students in America by age 39.

All this, plus best-selling books and keynoting at America’s largest Christian events.

Then along came 2010.

“I’m not going to give you a recovery. I am calling you into resurrection.”


Blaine hit a brick wall at breakneck speed. It resulted in the disclosure of a 20-plus year addiction to pornography and sexual vice. Everything (and most everybody) went away.


A lost marriage.

Lost reputation.

House foreclosures and financial devastation.

And the greatest loss of all — the will to live.


After a pretty decent attempt to end his life, Blaine was sent to a brutal month of rehab. They talked recovery. And more recovery. A lot of recovery. A year later, as Blaine was driving his Volkswagen from Kansas City to Tulsa, he heard a whisper in his heart. Out of nowhere.


“I’m not going to give you a recovery. I am calling you into resurrection.”


Over the next year, Blaine experienced a dramatic transformation on every level of his life. The old Blaine Bartel fully died. Was buried. A new Blaine rose from the ashes.


Blaine has been on mission ever since to equip every person he meets with the sheer joy of resurrected living.


He counsels Pastors and spiritual leaders.

He coaches celebrities and athletes.

He guides businessmen and blue collar guys.

He mentors teenagers and college students.


He proudly calls them his “twenty-percenters.”


Each of them are encountering something he calls de facto-freedom.


Freedom from the endless quest for approval.

Freedom from this culture’s measurements for happiness.

Freedom from the shame and exploitation of sexual vice.

Freedom from the racket of religious fakery.


Free for the first time to be you.

To know the real Jesus.  

To be the person you dreamed about becoming.

But didn’t think was possible.


Blaine is married to his resurrection accomplice, Lori. They are inseparable. Unless of course, Blaine fails to shower after hockey. Together they have four grown children, Jeremy, Dillon, Brock and Ally.
