What others are saying about our time together:
I’ve worked with several of the experts in this space and Danny is among the best. We could probably bring him back every year and learn something new each time.
Michael Volbeda, Executive Pastor of Ministries (Brentwood Baptist Church, Brentwood, Tennessee)
I would highly recommend you reach out to Danny. You’ll not be disappointed.
Sammy Flores, Guest Experience and Connections (Christ Fellowship Church, Miami, Florida)
Danny has been blessed with the notable gift of communication and brings to life the beauty of the gospel. He quickened our hearts to look at everything we do and to serve others with unspeakable joy. We look forward to having Danny back and recommend him without reservation.
Debbie Schibi, Host Director (The Church at LifePark, Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina)
So, here’s the deal…there is absolutely no shortage of people who can fly in, navigate TSA and deliver a message. Some even have the skill set and giftedness to do it a way that keeps us awake the whole time. But very few can deliver an incredibly timely message in a compelling way while expressing it from a heart to see people who are far from God come close to him. That’s what our Host Ministry Team got while having Danny as our guest. We could get content anywhere, but Danny delivered more than that; he came and showed us how to be Jesus to guests, by being Jesus to us.
Mark Johnson, Campus Life Director (Oak Hills Church, San Antonio, Texas)
We invited Danny to speak at our Healthy Church Conference and we could not have been more pleased. He spoke on a level that everyone could understand, brought in appropriate humor to make the day fun, applied sound Biblical principles, and touched the hearts of his audience. Danny spoke to a room full of pastors and ministry leaders for an entire day on how to develop a First Impressions team in the local church. He dealt with topics like how to create a guest friendly environment, how to make guests stick, and how to move people from connected to committed. We have had more positive response to Danny’s presentations than any others. We will definitely be bringing Danny back and we would recommend him without reservation to any church group.
Randy Carter, General Superintendent (Pentecostal Free Will Baptist Church, Inc.)
I can’t tell you how many people have referenced something Danny said that was impactful to them and how his message inspired folks to serve for the first time.
Abby Wilson, Director of Guest Services (New Vision Baptist Church, Murfreesboro, TN)
Danny is such a blessing to the Church! His humor, insight, compassion, and willingness to present truth to our leaders has made a lasting impact for our local church. He was the easiest speaker to work with…no drama! He is a great communicator, gracious partner in the gospel, and a breath of fresh air. Without hesitation, I recommend him for your needs whether they are volunteer training, leadership development, or building up your church staff.
Eric Reed, Minister to Men (Houston’s First Baptist Church, Houston, Texas)
Here’s what you should know: (1) We would invite him back. (2) He is an engaging speaker with quality content. (3) The greatest value we received was his attention-to-detail perspective on virtually every aspect of our weekend experience for people. He is witty, attentive, and has a genuine heart to build up the Church. This is a guy you want equipping your volunteer and staff teams.
David Hinkle, Discipleship Pastor (Fellowship Bible Church, Topeka, Kansas)
Recently several local churches that are interested in a multi-site strategy met with Danny. We were both inspired and instructed. I would encourage you to connect with this godly man. He has a heart for the Lord and a desire to help churches out of his vast experience.
Dr. George Thomasson, Pastor of Mobilization (Christ Place Church, Flowery Branch, Georgia)
Danny has a unique ability to take a broad topic like hospitality and narrow it down to cater to the specific needs of our host team volunteers. In his discussion with us, he clearly communicated simple ways to make first time guests and the Sunday experience even better than they have been in the past. He uses a foundation of biblical principles, mixed with humor, to encourage and challenge volunteers as they serve as the first impression of the church.
Tyler Rhoton, Worship Pastor (Sevier Heights Baptist Church, Knoxville, Tennessee)
