WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Pat Lawrence is an exceptional presenter. Interesting, funny yet relevant, she has an ability to present complex issues in simple ways. She works well through translators, having the experience of growing up abroad herself. This gives her great insight into multicultural issues as well as a special sensitivity to people who are different. I have known her for over 25 years as a person of integrity and grace.  Esly Cavalho, Director of Trauma Clinic in Brazil

 

I have known Pat Lawrence for over forty years and for twenty of those worked with her in ministry. Pat is an articulate communicator who is willing to address the hard issues yet does so with grace and compassion growing out of her own challenges. Pat takes the Bible seriously and so speaks and counsels from a Biblical perspective. I can highly recommend her.   Jack Hannah, Community Pastor of Westney Heights Baptist Church

 

Pat Lawrence is a very gifted speaker who unpacks God's Word in a very forthright and candid way. Her messages are encouraging and challenging and she's not afraid to tackle difficult subjects. Her willingness to be transparent about her background and life experiences to her audience illustrates the power of God in her life. I highly recommend Pat as a speaker for any occasion where you want God's Word taught clearly and powerfully!! Andrea Mahaffey, Pastor’s wife and women’s leader West Highland Baptist Church

 

I have enjoyed her preaching on Sundays. Her preaching is very practical and I always feel relevant to my life. She uses her own life experiences and tells how God has transformed her life as examples. That has touched many people's life. Ying Sun, Immanuel Baptist Church

 

It is an honour to write a reference for Pat Lawrence. I have known Pat for about 25 years.  Over this time Pat has been my frequent guest in courses that I teach at Tyndale Seminary where I am Professor of Christian Thought and Ethics. I've asked Pat to be in class to share with students her life story, her learning on various aspects of sexuality, and her own understanding of Christian discipleship in a global context. Pat has been one of the most significant leaders in Canada and the world in relation to ministry directed towards people struggling with homosexuality. Out of her own life experience and based on wide study, Pat brings to her teaching wisdom, graciousness, forthrightness, and deep commitment to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  Pat is a thoughtful, caring, and passionate Christian leader. It is a privilege to know her and call her friend. James A. Beverley, PhD, Professor of Christian Thought and Ethics, Tyndale Seminary, Toronto

 

Pat is a gifted communicator with a heart for people and a love for God. She powerfully combines biblical truth with practical applications for life, while weaving in enough humor to keep the audience listening intently. She is equally engaging on and off the platform and I highly recommend her ministry.” Sharon Cracknell, Former High School Principal at Peoples Academy

 

Pat is an authentic woman of great faith who is relevant and engaging with an incredible gift to balance depth with humor and identify with her audience. It is inspirational to hear the stories of where Pat has come from and the trials she has endured. Today I see only the love and strength of Christ in her and through her. Oscar Galindo, Director of Exodus Latin America
