Donny Burleson:
Donny is one of the funniest speakers around. Schools bring him in for assemblies, churches use him for camps and retreats. I put him in a warehouse with 1,000 jr. highers and a lousy sound system ... he kept them laughing, on the edge of their seats, and 125 students gave their lives to Christ that night. Donny won't let you down!

Don Talley:
Don Talley can be nothing but weak. His body is thin from the effects of an extremely rare form of Muscular Dystrophy. His voice is rough. Sometimes he even struggles to hold on to a microphone. Yet his ability to capture an audience is unmatched. His humor will break down the walls of diversity. His message of contentment will challenge any age group. "We live in a society which shuns weakness. I live for a God who empowers it."
