Common Ground


“Cal was phenomenal. His appeal was warm, yet funny – which kept it from feeling awkward or forced. He kept his speech lighthearted, but walked the line of allowing the audience to feel convicted as the Spirit led. I have not heard one disparaging remark, only positive responses from everyone who attended the banquet. As a result, we received the highest amount to date from this banquet!”
-CareNet Pregnancy Center of Southern Maryland

"Cal was amazing!  We had heard that he was funny, but had no idea how funny and entertaining he would be!  We had numerous comments that he was our best speaker yet!"
-Bonnie Mitchell, Echoz Pregnancy Care Center

 “We had such an amazing time.  The feedback is overwhelmingly positive.  Thank you for coming and sharing a message of hope, yet one of challenge.”
-Arlington Pregnancy Center

“The amount raised at the banquet you spoke at in Bloomington was the best ever in our history of fund raising! God used you in a wonderful way.”
-Living Alternatives Pregnancy Resource Center

"Cal Thomas came to us with great wit and insight. Not only was our evening with him enlightening, it was just plain fun. What we appreciated most was his passionate desire to represent Jesus well in his area of calling. He has done this under immense pressure, against the grain of his profession and with a wide variety of people. His passion is to lead his group of friends and coworkers to Christ and that passion was infectious with our people!"
-Mark Ashton, Lead Pastor, Christ Community Church, Omaha

"What a joyful time we had last night at the dinner, Gloria! Cal knocked it out of the park! We are praying that God will touch hearts with Cal’s clear presentation of the Gospel and for folks to give to the work. I appreciated his approachable style where anyone felt free to talk with him. He was so kind to entertain a photo-op w anyone who asked."
-Peter Faulkner, The Mailbox Club

"What better message could possibly be delivered at Christmastime than your straightforward talk on the spirit of giving and the means of success through your three-point path. On behalf of our breakfast sponsors [...] along with our members and guests, thank you very much. We hope you will consider joining us again."
-Laurel Baker, Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce

"This year was probably one of the "easiest" banquets in that our contacts with EVERYONE at Ambassador and our contact in Rome with Cal Thomas went exceptionally smoothly. The banquet was well attended and Cal was "fantastic". He was informative, passionate, and made a perfect appeal. I have heard no complaints from anyone, and I have no complaints!"
-Yvonne Miller, Pregnancy Center of Rome
