After speaking for almost 5 years, I thought it was time to make a top 10 list of the top 10 Christian Speakers for Women's Events!

Some of you may not know, but I used to book Christian Speakers through Outreach Events. I worked with top notch quality speakers such as Kirk Cameron, Josh McDowell, and Lee Strobel.

Unfortunately, I was told early on that I wouldn't book many women speakers. I was dumbfounded when my boss was right. People would call, but they couldn't afford to pay to host speakers such as Bethany Hamilton, Sheila Walsh, or Lisa Whelchel. 

It also saddened me that churches would pay the same amount to host a man speaker, but not a woman speaker. I make this list because I know these women personally. I have either heard them speak LIVE or via the Internet. I know they are top notch and affordable.

It's also important to consider:

+ Is she a women of integrity?
+ Does she actually care about you–the listener?
+ Does she stay away from gossiping or slandering other Christian speakers?
+ Is she accessible on social media to make you feel a part of her ministry?
+ Is she connected with her local church?

I don't what attracts you to listen to a speaker, but it is definitely not the amount of money paid to host them. 

There are plenty of amazing women speakers who don't cost an arm and a leg and would be honored to speak at a church women's retreat or women's event.

She travels more than 200 days a year, so if you want to book Pam to speak at your women's event -- you'll have to ask in advance! She and I will be joining ChristianMingle and their Los Angeles Board Members in 2014. She is also my mentor, and I love her.

She would make a great Christian speaker for women's events, MOPS groups, and marriage retreats.

Sarah and I go w-a-y back to the days before we were both published authors. I am so excited that she is now working on her second book (her first is Stress Point with Thomas Nelson, a Bible study for 20-something women). She’s super friendly and loves speaking to women.

She would love hearing from you!! She would make a great Christian speaker for women's events, MOPS groups, 20/30-somethings, and singles events.

Nicole and I have known of each other before we both became published authors. It was a pleasure to meet her at the Story Chicago Conference, and her book She’s Got Issues is amazing (I should know I endorsed it). She is launching her first ever women's conference in 2014. She is a spitfire Christian speaker for women!

Tracy is just about one of the sweetest ladies ever. I can’t wait to finally meet her in person soon. She would make an amazing addition to your women's speaking event. She describes herself more as a speaker and less of a blogger. She is an IN PERSON woman who loves getting personal and encouraging women face-to-face!

She is the Vice President/National Director for Praise and Coffee and has been speaking at women's for many years.

She would make a great Christian speaker for women's events or MOPS groups.
