 DSC_5822I enthusiastically endorse Brad and Heidi for their honesty, insights, and practical teaching that will strengthen and save countless marriages. Invite them to build marriages at your church and you’ll be thrilled with the results.

-Lee Strobel, best-selling author of The Case for Christ and The Case for Grace

Brad Mitchell is one of the most encouraging people I know – both on a personal level and in a larger group setting. Combine Brad’s encouragement gift with his experience in leadership as a founding senior pastor who planted and grew a church into the hundreds, along with his evangelistic zeal as a long-standing trainer of Becoming a Contagious Christian Course, and you have a high-impact teacher who you won’t want to miss.

-Mark Mittelberg, Author, Evangelism Strategist and International Speaker

Brad Mitchell has a powerful mix of communication skills, leadership ability, evangelistic passion, and Christian character…Brad’s dynamic teaching motivates and equips people wherever he goes. Brad is a high quality person – and a strong speaker – who inspires.

-Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor, Willow Creek Community Church

God used Brad and Heidi to impact our couples for eternity.  Two words can accurately sum up their message: Authentic and Biblical.  After hearing their testimonies, grace seemed even more amazing and redemption came to life.  In the words of one of our couples, “The talk on forgiveness was worth more than three years of counseling.”   They were a joy to work with from start to finish and we look forward to having them back again in the future.

-David Humphry, Family Life Pastor, Humble Area’s First Baptist Church, Texas

Brad Mitchell and his wife, Heidi, spoke at our pastors and spouses’ conference and Brad spoke at one of our main sessions. Brad and Heidi are an amazing couple. Both of them spoke with such transparency, humility and sensitivity. Our pastors are still talking about their ministry time with us. Brad has earned the respect as someone that I would never hesitate at asking again to speak to our pastors and their spouses or at one of our main plenary sessions. I highly recommend Brad and Heidi’s ministry to you.

-David Schrader, National Pastor for the Congregational Christian Churches in Canada.

Our ministry to law enforcement brought Brad and Heidi to San Diego for our police marriage retreat because of how impressed I was with them and the approach of Build Your Marriage….Their openness, approachability, affable personalities, humility, sensitivity and empathetic hearts combined with compelling presentations were an immediate connect with us and our couples….Brad and Heidi tackle all of the most difficult and devastating issues that can and do attack marriages today, with the hope, love, joy and confidence that our resources in Christ are adequate.  I highly commend their ministry to you, but be warned… they are addicting.  Your conference won’t want to let them go either.

-Herb Smith, Director, Christian Law Enforcement Fellowship, San Diego, CA

“Brad and Heidi spoke at our recent Marriage Conference and did a fantastic job. Their presentations were biblically solid, gospel-centered, and very engaging.  They spoke from their hearts and used many personal stories and experiences to provide examples and encouragement for real life application. We have had nothing but positive feedback regarding the time they spent with us. I give them ‘5 Stars’ and offer our highest recommendation and endorsement for their ministry.”

-Dr. Ed Kendrick, Lead Pastor, Heartland Church, Winter Haven, FL

 

DSC_4966“Brad and Heidi are a marvelous speaking team who are willing to share their darkness as well as their light. Their personal transparency speaks to so many of our struggling couples today. Their positive and victorious attitude also inspires us all to be overcomers and to remember that “With God all things are possible”.
     Brad and Heidi are the real deal. Their love, integrity and faith are contagious. Their story is powerful and their message is so needed for people in and out of the church. I highly recommend this ministry and look forward to having them back again.”

Bishop Jay Ramirez, Senior Pastor,
Kingdom Life Christian Church, Connecticut

“Those who have heard Heidi teach rave about her!  We hear nothing but highly enthusiastic feedback when she teaches. Heidi’s teaching is practical, balanced, and Biblical.  She has the rare ability to take core Scriptural truths and make them meaningful and accessible to her listeners, as well as to give them practical steps that help them convert these truths into real action. She’s versatile enough in her speaking style to connect with seekers but also with seasoned Christians. I cannot more enthusiastically recommend Heidi as a teacher and conference speaker. God has truly gifted her for this work!”

Anne Cody, Director of Community Life Ministries, church of 3,000 in Michigan

“Never before have we received so many wonderful comments! You made the gospel clear without “hammering” it and you were also interesting, fun and entertaining with your stories. I think we all feel like you could be our best friend!”

-Women’s Ministry Committee, Grace Baptist Church, Saginaw, Michigan

“At Stake Ministries had Brad and Heidi as guest speakers at our annual Love Found fundraising event. They did an excellent job in every aspect. From the first time they contacted us they were both personable and professional. They took extra measures to ensure the design of their talk met the needs of the evening, and the talk was wonderful. They had great chemistry, humor and left the audience with many helpful points to ponder. We would highly recommend them for any speaking event or conference devoted to building healthy and happy relationships.”
