Guest Speaking
Guest Speakers for these audiences:

Our guest speakers provide ideas, tools and encouragement to help parents navigate the often difficult tween, adolescent and emerging adult years. Equip and affirm the parents you minister to in their vital role as the primary influence on faith development.


Equip and train your children’s and youth ministry volunteers to clarify their role, understand ministry in today’s world, and develop valuable ministry skills. We partner with you to motivate, encourage and develop your student and adult volunteers.


Middle school, high school and college students benefit from hearing another perspective, so we come to your church event, retreat or camp. Our guest speakers offer talks and workshops on a wide variety of topics that will motivate, challenge, and inspire your students.
