Event Reviews

"Marc Newman has a profound ability to connect with his audiences. His message draws the audience into the world of the local pregnancy center then catapults them into connecting their personal understanding and vision for the Pro-Life movement in our country. Marc weaves fact, inspiration and humor into a uniquely empowering message connecting with audiences to engage, care and give. Marc is especially attentive to the organization he speaks for. He weaves into his message the needs, concerns, and aspirations of the center and inspires his audience to connect physically as well as monetarily. Our monthly donors tripled and the income doubled at this year's event over the previous year. I am pleased to call Marc a friend of The Life Center."

— The Life Center - West Texas

"Marc is a passionate prolife speaker. He calls people to action. This was our biggest banquet ever in 12 years, not only in giving, but also in people reaching out to us to see how they can be involved."

— Care Net Pregnancy Resource Center

"There were so many positive comments about our banquet this year. The audience appreciated Marc’s passion and forthrightness. He brought everything “back to the center”, gearing his whole presentation toward sacrificial giving on our behalf. This was by far our most successful event yet! Not only were the per family donations the highest they’ve been, but our number of monthly financial partners was substantially increased as well."

— Hope Pregnancy Center, MN

"We received high praise from many of our supporters about Marc. So much, we are having him back next year."

— Bowling Green Pregnancy Center, Bowling Green, OH

"Quote from several guests: 'Best speaker we've ever had in our 27 years of existence.'"

— Alpha Alternative Pregnancy Care Center, Hopkinsville, KY

“Marc Newman did it again! This was our second time hosting him and he did not disappoint!  His first visit was our highest grossing event ever, but this visit topped even that one! Marc has a remarkable way of connecting with the audience and really getting them invested in the cause of life. God is using him in a mighty way! Would recommend him to everyone without hesitation, and his pastors workshops are amazing as well!”

— Lifeline Pregnancy Help Clinic

 “Dr. Newman gave a superb speech and had the audience's attention the whole time.  He is very articulate and his presentation was excellent. Dr. Newman's "ASK" was excellent.  The ASK was doubled what we have received in past years, at this type of event.”

— Dayton Right to Life

"We had Dr. Marc Newman as our speaker at Care Net Pregnancy Center (in Houston) for the third time last October. Marc is our favorite banquet speaker. Our guests/donors love him! We always receive rave reviews, and the donations from the event reflect that enthusiasm. Marc builds his entire speech to prepare guests to make a sacrificial donation at the end. No guilt, just an honest challenge. I believe our guests leave feeling connected and excited about supporting our pregnancy center. His talks are always fresh, never have that "old, I've given this speech dozens of times" sound. One of the things I like best is that Marc takes the time to get to know our center, and he skillfully weaves in specific information to personalize his talk to our center. And yes, we do plan on inviting him back for a fourth time soon!"
