“Troy Murphy is a passionate leader and excellent communicator of God’s truth. I have seen him demonstrate these gifts to a wide variety of people from church congregations to the players and coaches in the NFL." – Craig Gross, Author, Speaker & Founder of XXXchurch.com
“Troy has the gift to reach an audience, big or small. I have listened to him speak to an NFL team just hours before a Super Bowl. I have listened to him address a team hours after a personal tragedy befell a team leader. I have also seen him skip the presentation ceremony where he was to receive a personalized Super Bowl ring because the ceremony conflicted with a speaking obligation he had the honor to stand by. I like listening to Troy ‘talk’.” – T. Pepper Burruss, Head Athletic Trainer/Physical Therapist, Green Bay Packers
