I am frequently asked to speak at conferences, churches, environmental protests, and many other venues. While I welcome the opportunity to speak, my time is limited. I try to limit my my speaking engagements to no more than once a month. This way I can give the most of my time and all my heart to your engagement.

If you are interested in having me come speak to your group, please visit my page on The Orthodox Speakers Bureau, and then contact Cynthia. She knows my schedule (perhaps better than I do) and will be able to help make it happen and will certainly be happy to discuss all the details with you (she is amazing).
