Audience Evaluations

  • Thank you, thank you for the opportunity you offered our group of 80+ individuals in your presentation on “Meant to Be….”  Your stories and inspiration offered our Faith Formation volunteer ministers a way to see that their commitment in faith to such a variety of ministries is God-directed.  Your guide to PRAY by the easily remembered points:  1) Pay Attention, 2) Reflect, 3) Ask and 4) say “YES” to God’s call was magnificent!In celebrating our folks as volunteer ministers, you helped create awareness of the weaving of God’s design in our lives through simple tasks of teaching children or working to support programming in the office.  You offered confidence in self and hearing the voice of God’s direction in our lives.  You spoke with passion and humor and offered peace and strength.

    We are most grateful.
