Jordan Berta is a passionate communicator who has dealt with a life-time struggle with anxiety.
On his own on-going journey of becoming mentally well, Jordan has encountered many people who share similar struggles and incredible stories that, for many reasons, have gone unspoken. The Unspoken Conversation is the product of his vision to expand the discussion about mental health, faith, community and the arts. Each week Jordan and his guests discuss issues related to mental health, and people share their stories and struggles in an authentic way, all with the goal of encouraging people in pursuit of health and wellness.
Jordan is a consummate networker and traveler, placing a high priority on family and friends. When he’s not catching up with people or putting more miles on his car, you’ll find him singing and writing at home in his study. Jordan has been interviewed and spoken on a variety of platforms. It’s possible there are a few pastors and church leaders out there that he still hasn’t met, but we doubt it.
In 2016 in addition to launching The Unspoken Conversation, he also released his first single entitled Hope Says Wait.
