Speaking Engagements

Speaking Engagement Information:

I am available to speak on Biblical topics at women’s meetings, conferences, workshops, retreats, and other events. Click here to read about previous events I’ve spoken at.

I also love appearing on Christian podcasts, so if you host a podcast and need a guest or a fill-in, please contact me, and let’s chat about it. Click here to listen to previous podcasts I’ve appeared on.

As Paul might say, “I do not want to appear to be frightening you with my [blog].” Although I write extensively, and often stringently, about false teachers, I do not speak about them at events unless specifically asked to. My desire, when speaking to an audience of ladies is to encourage, teach, and inspire them to learn God’s word, love Christ, walk faithfully with Him, and serve their local churches.

If you think you might like to have me come speak to your group, please familiarize yourself with my blog content and my “Statement of Faith” and “Welcome” tabs at the top of this page. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me and ask.

Women’s ministry leaders, if you’re contacting me about a church event, please make sure your pastor is familiar with, and approves of me before extending a formal invitation. Additionally, please secure the approval of any other leadership or committee members prior to extending a speaking engagement invitation. Again, I will be delighted to answer any questions anyone may have.

I do not have a set speaking fee – I prefer to tailor those fees appropriately to each event – but I do require modest travel (from Baton Rouge, Louisiana) and accommodation expenses. I also do not have any audience or venue size requirement. Large venues and audiences are wonderful and exciting, but small churches hold a special place in my heart. If you’re at a small church and would like for me to come speak, please e-mail me and let’s see what we can work out.

Is your church new to hosting conferences, retreats, etc., and you need a little help with the details? Check out these articles:

“[I] wholeheartedly recommend the ministry of Michelle Lesley to you and your ladies.
Her ministry here…was a tremendous blessing to our women’s group as she shared the Word of God with conviction and boldness, yet with a spirit of humility. Her devotion to God and respect for His Word are apparent by her depth of knowledge.
Michelle’s strong desire to glorify Jesus Christ and build up His church was obvious, as was her tremendous ability to communicate God’s Word. Our church continues to greatly benefit from the doctrinally sound messages she shared at our annual Ladies Retreat.”
Randall G. Hooper, D. Min.
Pastor, Corbin City Baptist Church, Corbin City, NJ
(Excerpted from a full letter of recommendation from Pastor Hooper, which I can e-mail to you upon request.)

“I can’t say enough about what a great joy and privilege it was to sit under such solid teaching.  We gave Michelle a hard subject, suffering, and she rose to the challenge and then some!  You can tell she knows her Scriptures, she had done the research and each of her sessions were well prepared and delivered with passion, joy and conviction.  Our ladies were blessed. Thank you Michelle, we hope to have you back to New England some day.”
Maria Zaccardi
Women’s Ministry Leader, First Baptist Church, Weymouth, MA

“Our church was blessed to have Michelle speak at our annual Women’s Christmas Event. She is a woman of sound doctrine, and her heart to see women grow in their knowledge of Scripture serves to make her speaking practical and effective. It is difficult to find women who will speak to other women these days and not get caught up in the emotional draw, which seems to be the norm. Instead, Michelle’s ministry helps women see all things through the lens of Scripture. We can’t wait to have her back again!”
Jayson York
Senior Pastor, Water’s Edge Bible Church, West Chicago, IL

If you need a godly, doctrinally sound speaker for your ladies, look no further than this lady right here!! We had a memorable time together, it was a banner day for Providence Baptist Church, and most of all, great impact for the kingdom of God. But more than that, a day that will have impact on lives for eternity. Can’t thank Michelle enough for the gift she gave us.

Women’s Ministry Leader, Providence Baptist Church, Memphis, TN
