We are not like some speakers bureaus with a long list of speakers they barely know. We have vetted each speaker on our roster by taking them through a rigorous application process. We connect with them regularly. We know their passion and core messages and how that will benefit audiences that will hear them. We pray with and for our speakers ... and event planners too!
We operate under this simple concept ... we are a speakers bureau with a ministry heart connecting event planners with Christian women and men speakers!
Your Event's Success is Our #1 Goal
You want to have a great event with a great speaker. We connect speakers and event planners to share the message of hope and healing with audiences around the world. In doing so, we want the events and ministry opportunities to be the best and most effective as possible for the event planner, the communicator, and most importantly, touching the individual lives of the audience
Event Planners / Ministry Leaders
We work on behalf of event planners and ministry leaders to make the process of finding the right communicator for their event quick and easy as possible by providing access to a wide variety of communicators across the country with messages and passions to fit their events' needs. With just one telephone call or email to the CSS offices, we can put you in touch with many speakers across the country, and we can fit most any budget.
