Jay Payleitner Biography

Jay Payleitner spent a decade in major market advertising. Learning how people think and doing some fun work.

But God called him into Christian media. And he became an almost-too-busy freelance producer. For more than a decade, Payleitner scripted and produced Josh McDowell Radio, Today's Father, Jesus Freaks Radio with TobyMac and Michael Tait, Project Angel Tree with Chuck Colson, and thousands of hours of radio that aired across the country and beyond.

Payleitner is a long-time affiliate with the National Center for Fathering and nationally-known motivational speaker for Iron Sharpens Iron, marriage conferences, men's retreats, women's events, writers' conferences, and weekend services.

Payleitner has sold more than half million books including the bestselling 52 Things Kids Need from a Dad, The Jesus Dare, and What If God Wrote Your Bucket List? His latest -- and perhaps most important release -- is The Prayer of Agur. That book which is all about finding balance in God's sweet spot is especially relevant during these extreme days.

Payleitner's books have been translated into French, German, Spanish, Italian, Afrikaans, Indonesian, Slovenian, Polish, and Russian.

He has been a guest multiple times on The Harvest Show, 100 Huntley Street, Moody Radio, Building Relationships with Gary Chapman, Cornerstone TV, and Focus on the Family.

Payleitner and his high school sweetheart, Rita, live in the Chicago area where they’ve raised five great kids, loved on ten foster babies, and are cherishing grandparenthood.

Speaking Topics
  • Your Husband Has Secrets (for women, based on Jay’s book)

    Men have secrets women need to know. We actually like to cuddle. We have flaws and want your help. We need you to chase your dreams. We don’t need sex every night. Plus, learn the four words that capture our heart.

  • What Your Wife Needs from You (for men, based on Jay’s book)

    Put her needs first and you both win! That’s not being a wimp. That’s servant leadership. Fall on the grenade. Push her buttons. Kiss in the kitchen. Make her beautiful. Be a hero.

  • 26 Things Kids Need from a Dad (based on Jay’s book)

    Laugh through true stories with lots of user-friendly takeaways. Jay never bashes dads. After all, God designed fatherhood to be a blessing and a blast. Includes video clips of classic movies.

  • What If God Wrote Your Bucket List? (based on Jay’s book)

    Typical bucket list items—bungee jumping, swimming with dolphins, seeing the Eiffel Tower—are meaningless compared to what God has planned for you. Maybe it’s time to pour out your old bucket . . . and live full!

  • Your Next Big Thing

    Jay tells his own roller-coaster story so you can see how God uses all our life experiences and has already prepared you for YOUR next success story. “Who will you be one year from today?”
