"A.C. is an outstanding speaker and understood the purpose of our day. He was funny, insightful, and shared very clearly his relationship with Christ. He made himself available after the service to talk with some teenagers from a group home and interacted with different groups and individuals during the event. He was great to work with; I can’t say enough about him as a person and a speaker. It is without reservation and with great enthusiasm that I recommend A.C. Green."
