Breen makes his living as a wild game dinner speaker and outdoor writer. Each year he travels the country speaking at Beast Feasts, Christian Bowhunters of America events, men retreats, Farms and Hunters Feeding The Hungry banquets, Christian Sportsman Fellowship dinners, fundraisers and church events telling his unique life story and sharing hunting techniques and the gospel. In the past several years, he has been blessed to hunt, fish and speak all over North America.
A “diehard outdoorsman”, Breen has cerebral palsy, a disease that affects much of his right side. When speaking, he often discusses the struggles and disappointments he has had to deal with while growing up with health problems. He shares how God has used his life and opened many doors that have brought him to where he is today.
All things are possible through Christ and if you “Delight yourself in the Lord; he will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4) This is what he hopes everyone who attends his events will believe when they leave.
Yes, Breen gets to hunt all over. Yes, he can teach people how to be a better hunter. However, more importantly, Christ has opened all of the doors and has allowed him to overcome the struggles that could have destroyed him if it weren’t for Christ.
Breen currently writes for magazines including Outdoor Life,Bowhunter, Bowhunting World and Petersen Bowhunting. He also works with a variety of companies in the archery industry such as Mathews Archery, Mission Archery, Wilderness Athlete, Pine Ridge Archery and Schaffer Performance Archery.
