Hurt to Hope:
From mega churches to slums to psych wards
After over a decade of speaking to teens, directing youth ministries in some of the largest, fastest-growing churches in America; After working in some of the most notorious slums around the world and now directing a ministry to those struggling with mental illness, J. Ware has seen ministry manifest its self in many ways and feels a passion to reach people with the gospel through his story of struggle ultimately, going from hurt to hope.
J. Ware...is rare! He has that intangible quality that is hard to describe, but when you've been around J. - or heard him speak - you know that you've encountered something special. Something special that points to a higher purpose and a deeper story, one that inspires us all to live more fully. J. is very authentic, inspiring and lives with a sense of humor - so whether its a one-on-one conversation or whether he's speaking to hundreds, you still walk away feeling a connection emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. He's the real deal and one of my favorite speakers!
Church, Camp, or Conference
No Matter Your Event...
As the keynote speaker for our high school outreach weekend, J was an effective communicator that held the attention of a large group of un-churched teenagers who were not accustomed to someone teaching spiritual Truth. Over 2 days and through 4 messages J articulately and powerfully explained the Gospel effectively engaging the kids with humility and his down to earth personal approach.
What's this thing going to cost?
I have spent years in ministry and understand all sorts of factors that determine how much a speaker may receive in compensation. I could itemize my costs, add my experience etc. etc. but that’s not how I work. I’m not independently wealthy so I do need to pay my bills but God has laid it on my heart to speak truth in an authentic, honest, loving way. I’m much more interested in sharing the gospel and getting folks connected to an amazing God than I am about compensation.
Let’s talk. My schedule allows me the availability to speak at camps in the summer and retreats in the fall. First, factor in my gas money to and from the camp or ministry site. Second, If it’s summer, I would like to bring my family. Can you add a few seats at your meal times? Third, Can you offer a place for the 7 of us in my family to stay while I speak? Fourth, would you take into account one or two of my kids attending camp as a camper while I speak? Fifth, I have bills. God will provide but you can decide what you give me as an honorarium. Please read my bio to factor the cost and just look at your budget and what you are paying others.
Let’s talk. This is about lives changed for eternity...not money. I’ll work with your budget any way I can. I sincerely mean that. - J. Ware
