Maureen Hughes, Regional Speaker Trainer
Barbara has a powerful testimony and delivers her message with conviction and humor. Audiences love her bubbly personality and see her heart for our Lord.
Barbara is the person you meet that you know she's spending quality time with the Lord. I have read all of her books and can tell you first hand that she IS her story. She is one of the few people I know that understands the gift God has given them and actually lives out that gift daily. Spend some time with her at a speaking engagement or reading one of her books and you will leave refreshed, with a yearning to be closer with the Lord. She speaks and writes with such simplicity that you feel like you are walking through time and living her life with her. Barbara will always lead you back to what is important, putting God first. Listen to her tell you how a broken young lady can take a very sick baby and find the love of God through all the struggle. She will give you the reasons it is impossible to give up.
If you are looking for an energetic, captivating Christian speaker for your event, you will do well to secure Barbara McGreger. I have heard her testimony at church, at a Christian Women's luncheon, and as she openly and honestly shares in our Sunday School class. I have read her books. Her life story is one that many women can connect with. Barbara demonstrates how one can overcome struggles in life with deep faith in a God who is able. Her presentation is warm, sometimes humorous, and always very encouraging. Her personality is bubbly and her words uplifting. She never fails to introduce people to her Jesus! Deeply personal, very transparent, Barbara's story is an example of just how a life can be transformed by the saving power of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Barbara has been a friend for many years. She's the real deal...... a down to earth country girl! Her spiritual journey began in low places, a miraculous "rags to riches" tale of God's GRACE. She first blew me away in Sunday school with her PASSION for the Word, riveting presentations and innovative facilitation. Over the years she's suffered devastating setbacks, but her love of God has not waivered. I've never known anyone to whom Jesus was so palpable! Her life is her mission field and she is NEVER off duty. If she leaves the house, she's going to witness to SOMEONE! You'll laugh, you'll cry! Hear how she grudgingly (to put it mildly) attended a Wednesday night bible study, only to leave walking 10 feet off the ground! Her life, her books and her faith are all testimony of her "utmost for His highest"!
Barbara McGreger has been an effective speaker in following the structured pattern and guidelines as set forth by Stonecroft Ministries. Her unique story is appealing to a diverse audience and is presented with personal enthusiasm and passion. She is sensitive to the Lord's leading and desires to honor Him.
I have known Barbara for several years. I was her pastor fo more than three years, and have helped her in publishing three books. Barbara is a godly woman, with an amazing testimony. You will be blessed to have her speak at your engagement.
