Congratulations - your search for someone to add unique value to your event is over!
I have over ten years of public speaking experience (in various settings), as well as honing my skills as a sought-after wedding officiant for almost five years now. Most clients describe my speaking style as a mixture of engaging story-telling, sharp humor, and inspiring insights. My unique professional background in public speaking, secondary and higher education, and event planning have created a very useful combination of skills that I would love to put to work for your upcoming event. For both speaking engagements and weddings, I am comfortable in both Christian settings and non-Christian settings.
Price Range: $150 - $2,000
Gig Length: 15 - 90 minutes
What to Expect
I take pride in making my role in your event, be it speaking or officiating a wedding, one aspect of your project that you no longer need to worry about. Since I have so much experience with these kind of events I am also more than happy to help coordinate and offer advice as needed. I know many talented individuals who can help fill other roles at events that I often serve at, if needed. I am also gifted in leading an event and can confidently make sure that everything runs on time and goes according to plan.
I have been the Lead Pastor of a local Sugar Land congregation for almost nine years. During that time, I also worked full-time teaching at a local High School for five years and have spent the past three years working part time as a professor at a local University. Throughout it all, I have enjoyed hundreds of opportunities to speak at all kinds of events. I got my undergraduate degree from Houston Baptist University in Biblical Languages (Hebrew and Greek) and then received my Masters degree in Theological Studies. Top Christian publishers often ask me to review books for them before they come out and I am regularly asked to serve as a consultant for church groups, leadership groups, and other similar programs.
Additional Booking Notes
I'm extremely low maintenance. If I'm preaching, all I really need is a music stand or podium of some kind. I have microphone equipment that I can bring if needed... otherwise I can make due with the specifications at your facility.
