Thinking of asking John to Address Your Group?

John’s extensive speaking schedule carries him across the nation and around the world. His humorous style engages every audience and his favorite topics are in great demand on college and university campuses, as well as with groups within the Christian community.

Because John tailors his message to the specific audience he is addressing, he prefers to work directly with the individual responsible for the event and schedule his calendar around the event’s needs.

We invite you to call John at 949.315-5533 or email him at john.fischer@mac.com to learn of his availability and to discuss together the dynamic of your group and how best John might serve your needs.

Overall Message
John looks to create motivations towards a greater relationship with Christ by increasing the audience’s awareness of and desire to put faith into action with an objective to effect faith-based messages in and around the common elements of our life experiences. John helps us reach outside ourselves to recognize how we can participate in God’s business in the world.

Overall Style
John is an entertainer. Through humorous interaction with the audience, John is humanly expressive with an ironic, witty view of life and himself, often finding humor in his own foibles and contradictions. His ability to connect is transparent and disarming in nature.

John is nothing if not subtle and expressive, and is able to put words to feelings that others may recognize but cannot express as powerfully.  By being honest, and by taking time to discover what he really thinks and feels about things, John encourages others to look more deeply into their own lives.

Overall Strategy
Inspired by the Word of God, John assists Christians in participating in God’s business in the world by learning how to:

Listen
Walk along side others
Change lives and hearts, because acts of love are taking place, not simply words
Instruct and empower Christian men and women
Accelerate God’s global message through action

Overall Audience
John’s approach integrates core messages to a variety of Christian audiences including Universities and Colleges, Churches, Young Adults, Singles, Divorced, Married, Men and Women’s Groups, Pastors and Worship Leaders Retreats, Conferences and Seminars.
