Thank you for your interest in having one of our speakers to be involved in your gathering. Our speakers love preaching God’s Word, consider it an honor to partner with other followers of Christ in proclaiming the gospel, and do not take such requests lightly. At the same time, their primary responsibilities are to love their families well and to lead in their churches and work wisely. These responsibilities to family, church, work, etc., often limit their ability to travel for other speaking engagements and therefore may be unable to accept most of the invitations they receive. A team of individuals assist in prayerfully considering each request. This team has identified certain parameters that guide their decision-making, including the following: In order to maximize their time away from home and other responsibilities, the team prioritizes larger events where pastors and/or church leaders are present from multiple churches, and speakers are rarely able to be away from home for more than a couple of days at a time.
Note: In order to protect his ministry and provide time for mentoring, David always travels with someone (either his wife or someone else). Therefore, travel accommodations would need to be provided for someone to come with him.
Thank you for your gracious understanding of all of the above. If you would like to submit an invitation, please complete the form below as thoroughly, and as specifically, as possible. Your invitation will be reviewed, and we will contact you within six weeks of submitting your request. Regardless of whether or not one of our speakers is able to participate, we pray that God will bless your gathering for the proclamation of His Word and the exaltation of His glory.
