Laurie Short is a speaker, author, and part time pastor of Ocean Hills Covenant Church in Santa Barbara, CA. She speaks at conferences, colleges, churches and denominational events around the country, and has spoken to over 500,000 people in the last 25 years.

Laurie is a graduate of Fuller Theological Seminary, and the author of “Finding Faith in the Dark” (Zondervan, 2014). Highlighting Laurie’s story as well as other stories, the book reveals how to find God in dark times — and how our response to our circumstances can make a difference in the way our story unfolds. She recently completed an 8 Session Video Companion study which is available on Right Now Media and on her website.
