Coaches Include-

Heather Neumann- Heather loves coaching Speech! She has had the honor of coaching many National Finalists, including National Champions. However it’s the journey that she enjoys the most. “To watch a student grow and discover themselves or their voice is such a blessing.” She is a Speech coach for her local club, as well online. This fall she will be teaching a Speech class, as well as a club through Empower-

Andrew Cullen- Up until the 8th grade, Andrew was terrified of public speaking. However, thanks to his mother forcing him to compete in debate, this formerly reluctant and introverted young man now eagerly jumps at the chance to speak in front of people. In fact, because of the years he spent debating and improving his communication skills, Andrew now hopes to one day be a pastor and impact many for Christ.

Throughout his five-year debate career, Andrew received numerous awards both at the regional and national level. Although he has definitely been blessed with success in the NCFCA, Andrew knows that the most important things that he has taken away from speech and debate are professional communication and writing skills, a more mature and Christ-centered personal character, and encouraging friendships. Andrew now loves helping younger students learn about and excel in the activity that has changed his life. This goal and passion is what motivated Andrew to co-found Resolved Debate 5 years ago and motivates him now to continue to invest in the NCFCA.

Andrew graduated from the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago with a major in Biblical Studies. This summer he will be completing a youth ministry internship at a church in South Carolina.
