Dewey Novotny is a husband for 40 years, father to seven “kids” (ages 36-19), and “Pwampa” to five affectionate grandchildren! When he’s in the room you always know it because of the way that he loves life…and people.

About Dewey

Dewey Novotny’s involvement in student ministry and leadership development spans three decades with pioneering the Hugh O’Brian Arizona Youth Leadership Seminars and launching a grassroots ministry for College and Career aged world changers. More recently he directed a Student Resource department for the Advanced Training Institute, a large home school organization, and has since founded and developed Life Purpose Planning.

Whether vocationally flying “aluminum tubes” across the Atlantic, fly-fishing in Alaska, or inspiring others to seek God’s best, he spreads contagious enthusiasm across the country. He uses his experiences as an F-16 military and commercial airline pilot to motivate young people to wholeheartedly “discover, define, develop, and deploy” into their individual, God-ordained, world-changing life purpose.

Speaking Examples

Dewey is just as comfortable at the kitchen table as he is in a keynote setting, and is equally fulfilled.

Weekend Workshops

In addition to speaking at conferences and conventions, Dewey also facilitates weekend planning retreats where attendees work through the big questions of life, purpose, and planning. The workshops are fun-filled, fast-paced, interactive and life-changing!

Student Tracks

The possibilities are endless when you put students in a room with the goal of identifying their purpose! Dewey Novotny is passionate about helping young people identify their God-given passions and would love to personally walk them through this often overwhelming process.
