Speaking Invitation

Thank you for your interest in inviting PD to speak at your congregation/event, it truly is an honor and it is not taken for granted. Please fill in the below form so we may evaluate your request.

Please note that due to PD’s involvement in various responsibilities, he cannot accept all travel invitations. Therefore, all invitations will be assessed on various factors, PD will pray and think through what events are most strategic for the gospel.


Offerings are voluntary: Please consider that PD is a full-time minister, yet has never set an honorarium. He leaves that up to the Lord and those planning the event. We believe in providing attendees clear and easy opportunity to give, to not prevent the one who desires to be generous (2 Cor 9:6-7), nor the worker worthy of wages (1 Tim 5:18).

Some churches have adopted policy to not deduct the expenses for bringing the minister to them from the minister’s offering, we greatly appreciate this policy as it honors the minister, to not let them indirectly pay for their own expenses to labor among you.

We understand churches, conferences, and other events each have unique challenges and customs, please discuss with us any questions you may have.

Expenses: PD does not ask for any formal payment for speaking engagements. We do ask for travel expenses, accommodation and food to be covered (Luke 10:7).

Travel expenses may include flights, food for journey, parking fees and any other reasonable expense.
