I’m always honored to be invited to teach or preach. I regularly speak at conferences, retreats, youth camps, and local church services. I have served as a key note speaker and break out speaker at several conferences at Southern Seminary, as a break out speaker and panel moderator at the Desiring God conference, chapel speaker for different colleges and universities, camp pastor for youth camps for various LifeWay camps, Student Leadership University, and Crossings Camps.
If you would like to discuss an opportunity please send an email with the following details to this email
1.) Dates for the event.
2.) Location of event.
3.) Projected attendance for the event.
4.) Number of times to teach/preach.
5.) Lodging accommodations (hotel, retreat center, et cetera)
6.) Attire for the event.
7.) If other speakers or musical artists will be a part of the program please include this information with the request.
8.) Theme of event/topic you would like me to speak on.
9.) I do not have a set honorarium amount, but I want to steward my time well so the financial impact will be considered. Please include these details with the request.
Some things to consider when sending a request:
1.) Due to our family’s commitment to our local church we limit the number of weekends we will travel per month.
2.) I ask that host churches/organizations cover travel & lodging expenses. If I’m flying to your event, my expenses will include mileage to and from the Columbus airport (a little over an hour away) and airport parking during your event.
3.) I prefer to book my own travel & lodging and get reimbursed if possible. When traveling with my family I generally stay, when possible, at Residence Inn in order to get a suite that can accommodate all six of us.
4.) If requested, I can bring copies of my books to make available. If I have books at your event please make sure to mention this in your introduction. It may be helpful for you to bring attention to this a couple different times throughout the conference. It is expensive to travel with books, especially when flying, so your help in promoting them, should they be made available, is most helpful.
5.) My summer speaking schedule generally fills up over a year in advance; fall and spring aren’t scheduled as far in advance.
