The fact that Mike is booked and re-booked over and over again by the same organizations says a lot about his ability to consistently deliver “over the top” fundraising results. But Mike is more than just one of the funniest men in God's Kingdom, he is our busiest speaker in the community of faith!
Having relocated his entire family to the Dominican Republic in December of 2009 gives you an idea of the scoope of Mike's message - Comedy, Missions, Pro-Life, Marriage and more .. and he excels at each!
If you are doing a fundraiser, you owe it to yourself to consider Mike Williams. He not only speaks at banquet fundraising events for pregnancy centers, Youth for Christ and Christian School, he consults for their banquets all over the country. Hiswww.FocusOnTheBanquet.com is considered the quintessential “must see” site for direction in producing a flawless fundraising banquets. Mike has the ability to articulate your ministry’s cause with passion and power... and your group will be laughing while they write their checks. Mike says, “Laughing people just give more - and they are glad they gave!”
Your group will be deeply inspired by Mike's powerful testimony. Born the youngest of five to an inner city family, his oldest brother was killed at seventeen, on the streets of Chicago and another brother was killed at seventeen in prison. His two sisters turned to alcohol and drugs, a turn for which they have never fully recovered. At the age of twenty-seven he met his father for the first and last time. Mike's mother chose to give him away in hopes that at least one of her children could have a chance at a future. Mike was adopted by a Christian couple (YFC volunteers) who had been praying for a child for over twelve years... and the fun was just about to begin. You will laugh and cry as you hear his moving testimony of the grace of God. Many in your group will find Mike's journey to be a defining moment in their own life. His stories of 8 years (8 years that Mike considers to be defining moments in his life) in a Christian School will tickle your funnybone . IN 1997, Mike and his wife adopted a their own son from a similar background. You will be moved by this compelling story of adoption into two families.
There's a reason organizations like; Focus on the Family, Creation Festival, Disney, Cruise Lines, Gaither Praise Gathering, hundreds of PRC’s, Youth Specialties, Colleges, Universities and major league sports chapels have used him again and again.
Mike has recorded thirteen CDs, written five books including the Turkey Soup Inspirational Series, and Men Moved To Mars Because Women Killed The Ones On Venus. He has produced three DVDs, and was the executive producer of The Comedy Bus mini-series. You can watch a demo of his own comedy concert at his website: www.mikewilliamscomedy.com.
“This was our second year having Mike speak at our banquet, and he does a wonderful job! He is great and easy to work with, a true partner in ministry and in planning the event, and gives an incredible presentation at the banquet. We had some guests leave comments asking for him to come back a third year!”
“WOW! What can we say-- we have never had a request to bring a speaker back-- but this year that is the common request! Our donors loved him! Several are still laughing! And our donations were over the top. One thing we were very impressed with was how he ask people not only for a one time donation for the evening, but for filling out a long term donation as well. It worked! We have several that did just that. Thanks, Mike!”
“Many people commented on how much they enjoyed his stories, but especially how he gave tangible examples for what donors’ contributions would be used for at the Center (phone bill, training, resources, etc.). With pledges, we had the best response ever in donations!”
