Tina Marie Griffin
“Over the last two decades, it has been our privilege to schedule and work with many speakers and authors. We have been privileged to book the most well known Christian communicators in the world. As might be expected, some make more of an impression than others; but one person who made quite an impact on our audiences and staff was Tina Marie Griffin. She held an audience of over 2,000 college students riveted as she shared her own life story and the truth of God’s Word in compelling fashion. She was a joy to work with and clearly came with the heart of a servant. In our opinion, she is a world class communicator and exhibits Christ-likeness every step of the way.”

“The Educational Policy Conference this year was the BEST ONE I’ve ever attended, and I’ve been going for the last 6 years! Having you as a guest at our home on Friday night and then your OUTSTANDING message on Saturday were just 2 of the highlights of the conference! Honestly, your message yesterday was one that needs to be heard at every school in this country AND by every PARENT (and grandparent) in this country! I’ve already signed up through the text number you gave during your presentation yesterday. I am VERY interested in getting you back to St. Louis to speak at various schools. THANK YOU for what you are doing. God has given you a message to spread and the gift of the perfect skills to spread that message.”~ Shannon, MO
