About Me

About Mike

Growing up in Waukesha, WI, Mike Svoboda had a strong desire to see his friends and classmates come to know and experience the transformational power and joy of a life lived in relationship with Jesus. While in college, Mike became involved with PULSE, an evangelistic outreach ministry in the Twin Cities with the mission to “awaken culture to the reality of Jesus.” Since joining PULSE, Mike has traveled to 48 of the 50 states, as well as 16 different countries, reaching more than 200,000 people. Whether on or off the stage, Mike’s greatest hope is to see people make the same life changing and life-giving choice he’s made to daily follow Jesus.

As a Youth Evangelist, Mike’s often says, “I will go anywhere and everywhere if possible to see that happen!” If you, or someone you know would want to host Mike for your next event, you can contact him HERE.



What People are Saying

“If there were an encyclopedia entry for “Youth Speaker” there would be a picture of Mike Svoboda.  Mike has a passion for students.  He embodies the perfect balance of being genuinely goofy and funny while authentically serious about the issues that matter most.  Whether you are looking for someone to speak at a school assembly, music festival, church or camp – I strongly encourage you to utilize Mike.  He is a team player.  He will give you 110%.  Your students will love him.”

“We had the privilege to have Mike speak at NorthPointe Christian for a chapel this year.  His presentation was engaging, relevant, and true to the Word of God.  He did a great job speaking to our high school and did a great job balance his content and scripture with life experiences and stories.  Our students really enjoyed him and were challenged by his time with us.  I would wholeheartedly recommend him to return or to do the same for student based groups or audiences.”

“Mike has an amazing ability to engage students where they’re at while challenging them to be better.  Mike being a dynamic and gospel-oriented speaker, challenged our students to not only embrace Jesus’ call on their lives but to also thrive under His grace and mercy.  He has an amazing ability to take such a large-student audience and captivate them both by his enthusiasm and authenticity, but also through his ability to make biblical truths relevant and empowering.  Mike did a fantastic job making the students feel welcome and displayed this by not just speaking but by being available at any point to dialogue with a student through whatever was going on in their lives.  I thank God that he has given men like Mike the gifting He has to challenge today’s youth for the Gospel and challenge them not just to cope with the world but to urgently thrive under God’s grace.”
