“As a returning speaker, Israel Wayne is definitely one of our most popular! He is personable, a great communicator, and explains his subject matter so that everyone can understand.” ~ Elysse Barrett,
"I invited Israel Wayne to share on a Sunday morning after a great recommendation from another pastor. I was edified and our fellowship was quite blessed. His messages were relevant and Biblically based. I look forward to the next time we can host him." ~Aaron Hemness, Pastor, Sacramento, CA
"Israel is a creative and compelling person – he lives honestly, maintains a great sense of humor, and quickly accomplishes his tasks with excellence. He is a powerful communicator who uses all forms of media effectively to promote his message. Being around him is a joy and an encouragement personally, and hearing him speak is helpful and challenging spiritually." ~ Daniel Jarvis, Pastor
"Israel has a great gift to speak the truth in love; holding out God’s Word without compromise and yet with a measure of grace and encouragement that is not condemning – a “gracious absolutist.” If you ever have a chance to hear him speak/preach I encourage you to make the time to hear him." ~Michael Hayward, Pastor, Rohnert Park, CA
"We live in a day in which the Church is loosing its passion both for Christ and for Truth. We desperately need a spiritual revival that ushers in a truth revival that affects every aspect of life. Without this Biblical worldview we will only loose our way in a sea of worldly thinking. Israel Wayne understands this and that much is at stake. He is a family man and challenging speaker. Recently he spoke at a conference our church held that focused on this topic. Many attending were hugely impacted as he addressed (with humor at times) the philosophical pitfalls of our day, as well as challenges that face the family, especially raising up mighty young men of God equipped to change our world. I believe God is using Israel in our day to help our generation think Biblically and live radically." ~ Mike Curtis, Pastor, Sanford, FL
