Julie Boyd loves people, and she loves to talk…especially about Jesus! She has been entertaining and inspiring audiences since the age of 10. She began her formal ministry after receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from William Carey University in 1981 and a Masters in Religious Education from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in 1984.

Combining humor with compelling stories of changed lives, Julie is gifted in communicating the message of hope through Christ. She is an accomplished ventriloquist! Julie’s talent and humor through ventriloquism often features “BC Homes” or “Miss Mildred,” a favorite at women’s ministry events! Whether you choose to use her ministry through ventriloquism or her unique gift as a compelling communicator, Julie will provide your audience with a challenging and memorable experience.

Julie developed her call to ministry out of a love for people and a desire to be used to encourage others in their faith journey. In 1996 Julie joined the staff of Florida Baptist Children’s Homes where she served for 20 years, most recently as Vice President of Church Relations. This tender ministry captured her heart! She continues to champion the cause of foster care, adoption, feeding programs, and international ministry having served extensively in national and global mission engagements. Julie now has a passion for helping other life-changing ministries grow and excel in sharing the story of Jesus. As a Consultant/Strategist with Generis, http://generis.com//julie-boyd, she is committed to helping churches and Christian non-profits accelerate biblical-based generosity. Julie recently joined the staff of Samford University serving as an Advancement Officer for School of the Arts. http://www.samford.edu/arts/
