"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!"

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."

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!"
