“Gary Rohrmayer is a veteran evangelist, church planter, and pastor. But, in every sense of the word Rohrmayer is a coach. He has the heart of a coach in addition to the skills of a coach. He is optimistic about God’s power to change people. He understands that every person is on a journey. They are waiting for someone to walk alongside them and help them discover what God wants next.” – Ed Stetzer, President of Life Way Research
“The great Apostle asked, ‘How are they going to hear without someone preaching?’ The reality is that the eternal gospel goes forth to people from people. And, by experience, most people ‘hear’ the gospel through a spiritual conversation not a sermon. Gary Rohrmayer empowers normal people to share the gospel through intentional conversations.” - Darrin Patrick Lead Pastor of the Journey Church, St. Louis, Mo and Vice President of Acts 29 Network
