Testimonials

When Les spoke at our camp, he did not just come prepared with excellent content, as you would expect with most camp speakers/evangelists, but he came with a heart burned to see Jesus change the lives of the students he was speaking to.  I was so encouraged by his ability to connect and relate to students.  One of the greatest things, in my mind, that a camp speaker can do is to make himself relatable.  Les has the heart of a pastor and it is clearly evident as he ministered to our students throughout the week!

Les, God spoke through you powerfully this week. It was an honor to partner with you and to truly see how God never wastes a hurt. God’s hand is on you and I truly believe the best is yet to come for you. I appreciate your family sharing you with 360 people this week. Lives were changed!

Lance Harrington, Executive Pastor

Thank you so much for being transparent and speaking at camp this past week, Les! I was so encouraged by you.

Paige Medline, camper

My daughter went to camp this past week and I just wanted to say thank you for the great messages you shared.  Her heart was really touched and convicted to live out her faith more boldly than ever.  She left feeling closer to God and encouraged in her faith in a great way.  Thank you for allowing the Spirit to use you in the lives of people.

Les and Kristin brought a very real, heartfelt, life changing and Christ-centered message.  People are still referencing the impact of their ministry here at our church.  I know that God is using them to confront issues in our culture today and bring true transformation.

I really appreciate this follow up very much. It is difficult to explain how timely and how powerful the marriage conference was.  Your transparency and authority in the Word of God was JUST what I needed.  I appreciate this encouragement and I will definitely keep in touch!

Our men’s TGIW Bible study group was deeply impacted by the raw and real words of Les & Kristin Norman as they shared on “Living Beyond The Masks.” It was especially meaningful to hear both of them communicate the pain, as well as the forgiveness, which they experienced…

Thank you for blessing the men of Mission Hills with your message this evening.  I believe hearts were changed and wives and children will reap the blessings of husbands and fathers who came home different men tonight because of the gospel they received tonight…

“I’ve known Les almost 20 years since our playing days in Cleveland. Les is a man of many gifts… baseball player, teacher, speaker, communicator, motivator, friend, husband, and dad.
A man of character God has used to impact so many.”

Each time I have shared a speaking engagement with Les whether in person or on the radio I have come away with such a great feeling. Les is very professional, adapts to his audience, shares a great passion for his listeners and challenges them to action. Les understands the importance of his faith, family and the influence he has as a former major league player. He has set the priorities for his life and is doing a great job communicating his message to all of us.

Today was such a wonderful event – the energy in the room was palpable.  I have received numerous emails this morning and afternoon complimenting CASA on the breakfast – and everyone mentions how touched they were by your story and your support for our organization.  I can’t thank you enough for your heartfelt speech and wonderful endorsement – it made a huge difference today!  Thank you so much for all your help and inspiration – I am so glad that CASA brought you into our circle! It has been a true gift.

Les is one of the most effective communicators that I know.  He has the ability to take a difficult or complex subject and break it down into practical information that you can not only understand, but, put into practice right away. Les speaks with conviction, compassion and knowledge.  He balances his subtle humor with a unique sincerity and as a result, his entire audience will come away from their time with Les extremely motivated and personally challenged.
