What Clients are Saying
“I love that Patrick came prepared for our sessions – he had already listened to my sermon multiple times and was ready with relevant questions and feedback. With these, Patrick helped me take my sermon apart, discover what was working, and put it back together. The process helped to clarify my strengths as a speaker and gave me some specific tools to use going forward.”
