Invite us to Speak


We would love to help minister with you as you feel like we can help.  Here is what we typically do:
  • Youthworker Training - Allen would meet with volunteers who work with students in your church, association or state and lead a workshop featuring discussions on Adolescent Development, Learning Styles and Creative Bible Teaching.  He frequently speaks on youth culture, equipping a youth ministry team and the discipleship partnership between church and family.
  • Parent Encouragement - Either Allen or Judi or both would meet with parents and talk about communication, discipline, techniques, and mostly share stories of what it is like to try to parent in such a way to have a discipleship influence on their children.
  • Preaching - Allen enjoys preparing a sermon for your morning and/or evening worship services.
  • Women's Events - Judi has been a keynote speaker as well as a breakout leader at women's events of all shapes and sizes.

You will find some sample presentation files (which you are welcome to use for your ministry) by clicking "presentations" over to your left.

Honorarium/Love Offering


Allen and Judi do not publish a fee to come and help at a church, business, or group event.  We want to follow God's leadership related to speaking and travel, regardless of financial issues. But because many church leaders ask for guidance about honoraria and love offerings, the following statement is provided:

We are grateful for our income at the church. Honoraria that we receive when we are privileged to speak away from the church helps us to contribute to the expenses of being a family--car insurance, mortgage, utilities, etc. We also self-fund many of our mission trips.

We try to make sure we save time for each other and for our children, so we have to limit the number of invitations we can accept. For Allen, the average honorarium is around $500 per speaking day.  Weekend events have ranged from $800 - $2,500. For Judi, women's events and church retreats have ranged from $300-$1000 per event.  At the end of the day, we trust churches and conferences to do what is fair.

If possible, it is helpful to receive the honorarium check at the close of the event.  We prefer to stay in hotels if possible just to safeguard rest and "thought time."

Travel

For air travel, we prefer to make our own flight arrangements. We shop early and do not mind buying the tickets and turning in all expenses at the same time, generally after the event so that we can include gas for rental cars and (if necessary) airport parking in Atlanta.


For events in which we drive, we ask that mileage be reimbursed at the current government rate, presently $.50 per mile, calculated on a round trip.  We recommend you go to www.mapquest.com and punch in a round trip from your address to the church: 1445 Mt. Vernon Dr. Dunwoody, GA. 30338
