Word by Heart Founder: Bruce Kuhn
Bruce Kuhn was on Broadway in Les Miserables and spent several seasons playing leads in American regional theaters. He now tours the globe with his solo performances of The Gospel of Luke, Acts, Het Evangelie van Marcus (in Dutch) and others, presenting the original eyewitness accounts from scripture —word for word—as if he saw them happen. He taught his storytelling method as a Fuller Seminary extension course while on staff with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF), then at Regent College in Vancouver and Wycliffe Hall Seminary at Oxford University. He went on to co-found the Word by Heart school with Paul Childers, in partnership with Youth With A Mission (YWAM). Now on six continents, the schools are graduating hundreds of presenters, who tell the Gospel stories word for word in their own language, without memorizing. Bruce lives with his artist wife Hetty and their two children on a North Sea island in Holland.
