Thanks for stopping by my site! My name is Casey Cease and I am the husband of Steph, the daddy of Braelyn and Abby, the pastor of Christ Community Church of Magnolia, a speaker, a blogger, a publisher, and an author. I released my first book, Tragedy to Truth, in 2013.
I have a passion to see people who are far from God, connect with God, through a love relationship with Jesus Christ. One thing that is important to me is to not live in the spiritual / secular dichotomy (which is false), but to live with the understanding that since God created all things, and God is spiritual, that all things are spiritual.
With this understanding, you will find my blog will cover various topics based on life, business, ministry, faith, church planting, and at times just fun stuff. I like to share with people things that I like or find useful, so you will see me connecting quite a bit in that regard as well.
Here are a few of the Blog Posts that have been popular:
- What to Do When You Don’t Feel God (also on The Resurgence)
- Nothing is Wasted (also on The Resurgence)
- Several posts on Fundraising
Types of Speaking Events I Participate In (More on Speaking Page):
- Youth/Student Events (D-Now, Summer Camp, Retreats)
- College Events (Bible Studies, Retreats)
- Men’s Retreats
- Church Services

More About Me
I did not become a Christian until I was seventeen years-old after a very rough season in my life. Up until that point, my life was defined by anxiety, depression, fear, and an empty pursuit to find happiness in stuff that was created, but not in the Creator. All of this came to a catastrophic head on the early morning of July 5, 1995 when I hit and killed a friend of mine while driving my car at a high rate of speed.
Following the crash I was obviously devastated and searching for peace and truth. Through the reading of a Bible my mom gave me along with hearing a preacher teach out of John 5 about Jesus asking a guy if he wanted to be well, I realized that I needed to be made well by Jesus. He made me well. Not perfect, but in the sight of God the Father, I became perfect, because of what Jesus accomplished on the cross.
Not long after I graduated from high school I began speaking to students about the dangers of drinking and driving, and the importance of making right choices. I did hundreds of school assemblies, classes, workshops, etc. on this subject and got to travel to different parts of the United States.
After a while, I felt that my message at these events was lacking an important piece. That piece was Jesus. The more I tried to encourage kids to ‘be good’ and ‘make good choices’, I felt myself needing and wanting to tell them about the Good One, Jesus.
I finally gave into the call to vocational ministry in the fall of 1999 and began my first full-time youth ministry position in January of 2000. In 2001 I started what is now Transform Ministries, which is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization that is overseen by a board of directors that supports my speaking ministry.
By God’s grace, Steph and I have been a part of 3 church plants in various capacities since 2002. The first church plant was Crossbridge Church in Sugar Land, TX, and we had the joy of serving on the launch team and I was their Student Pastor for one year. In 2007, we moved with our good friends to Brenham, TX to start Christ Church, which is now Redeemer Church, where I served as a founding elder and the Community Pastor.
In 2010 we were sent by Christ Church to The Woodlands/Magnolia, TX area to start Christ Community Church of Magnolia (C3Magnolia) and began having weekly worship services in April of 2011.
I still enjoy speaking at events when I am able to, so if you would like to invite me to speak at your event, please fill out the booking form, or for more general contact, you may contact me by clicking here.
