""There are speakers that just tell stories, and there are speakers that can put you to sleep. Jonathan was neither. Everything we hoped for in brining in Jonathan happened. A dynamic speaker that could make you laugh, he was able to shape biblical stories that lead men into a deeper relationship with their Creator. Jonathan was perfect for our annual Men's Outreach Event. He unpacked the story of Abraham and the steps to Greatness. He spoke with boldness, he was in the Word A LOT, and he was a pleasure to sit and talk with." - Steve Heller, Director of Men's Ministries at Lakeside Church in Folsom, CA
“Jonathan Evans is simply excellent. He is passionate, energetic and always has a command of the topic at hand. He was a huge success, so much so that we are working to get him back again. His presentation on Abstinence was spiritual, stimulating, humorous and insightful. We received nothing but high marks for the presentation.” – Clarence A. McGill, Children/Youth Pastor St. Matthew Missionary Baptist Church
“Jonathan was outstanding. I would highly recommend him to any church or organization. We have had some great speakers for our Wild Game Dinner but Jonathan’s content and presentation ranks among the best. Thank you for your help and support.” -Tom Dawson First Baptist Church, O’Fallon, IL
"Jonathan spoke in our student chapel at MidAmerica Nazarene University. His topic was Healthy Sexuality and he did a beautiful job of connecting God's word to the issues facing young adults today. I highly recommend him as an engaging speaker with depth." - Elizabeth Diddle, MidAmerica Nazarene University
