“Doug was a breath of fresh air for our pastors and church leaders across Montana.  His training and approach to evangelism was very relevant, practical and resonated deeply with us. Doug was affirming to those who practice a similar approach to evangelism and challenging to others who have held to the approaches of yesteryear.  His book, God Space has changed the way we view outreach in Montana.

“I am the pastor of a San Francisco Bay Area church. For some time I had been praying for the right opportunity to bring Doug Pollock out to train our staff and the core of our church. We hosted an all church retreat where every attendee received Doug’s book with their pre-registration and was asked to read it before attending the retreat. What took place our weekend together was nothing short of supernatural! Our people were not given a canned presentation, but proven tools, an eternal perspective, and relevant media saturated presentations (a key value for us here in Silicon Valley!) that both equipped and inspired. Our people wrestled, practiced, interacted, discussed, prayed, cried and laughed till our cups were full. At the end of the weekend, we were a force ready to bless, serve and engage our community with a strategy that I believe is germane and significant in bringing Jesus to people. My only regret is that I didn’t bring Doug out sooner! Our whole church has been catapulted to a whole new level, evangelistically speaking! If you have your Lead Pastor’s ear, please encourage him to consider bringing Doug in.”

“I have been in full-time ministry for 40 years, but increasingly frustrated with the effectiveness of evangelistic methods. God Space – the book and the seminar – have given me a new excitement for connecting with those who do not yet know Christ. Not only is Doug a gifted communicator, but the content is relevant, challenging and practical.  Our people are growing in their ability to meaningfully connect with those who don’t yet know Christ.”

“Evangelism is something that we are all supposed to do, but few of us actually do. We would like to be able to effectively share our faith but decide that it just is not our “gift.” What Doug Pollock shared with us was simultaneously revolutionary and obvious: many unbelievers would actually enjoy talking about spiritual things if they could be assured that we are listening respectfully. Doug’s book “God Space” gives a simple how-to for spiritual conversations, and the weekend he spent with us gave us the opportunity to start the journey from information to transformation. Thank you, Doug, for encouraging us in this way!”

"...Doug's approach is authentic, fresh, and innovative, and filled with practical wisdom..." read more

“As I reflected on our recent workshop with Doug Pollock, I found myself wishing that I had heard it 20 years ago. There have been multiple occasions when my well-intentioned “evangelistic” style was too aggressive and eventually pushed somebody further from the cross rather than nearer to our Savior. Doug’s approach is authentic, fresh, and innovative, and filled with practical wisdom. Your church can’t afford to miss the conversation Doug’s visit will stir up. “

"...As a consultant, Doug is an invaluable resource as you build a strategic plan for impacting your community..." read more

“If your church is more interested in being the church than having church, Doug Pollock could be your new best friend. As a trainer, Doug offers practical steps that help everyone find it easier to have spiritual conversations. As a consultant, Doug is an invaluable resource as you build a strategic plan for impacting your community. If you’ve not utilized him before, you need to talk to him today! “

"...training with Doug Pollock was a spiritual “Starbucks” for those thirsting for reality in sharing Christ..." read more

“When was the last time you and your church could say, ‘We really had fun learning to meaningfully share Christ with our culture’”? “ As a pastor for 33 years I had just about given up on there being evangelism training that really understood culture and helped people bridge the gap from market place realities to sensitively sharing Christ. Our “Irresistible Evangelism” training with Doug Pollock was a spiritual “Starbucks” for those thirsting for reality in sharing Christ. ”

"His book is a "must read" and his workshop is a "must take" for anyone wanting to discover how to increase the quality and the quantity of their spiritual conversations."" read more

“Our church had a hunger to reach others for Christ but we didn’t know know how to pull it off in this ever-changing culture. Doug Pollock, through his careful and insightful exegesis of our never-changing Christ and our ever-changing culture has given us ‘God Space’ a simple practical guide for engaging not-yet-Christians in spiritual conversations. His book is a “must read” and his workshop is a “must take” for anyone wanting to discover how to increase the quality and the quantity of their spiritual conversations.”

...share our faith in a way that is not weird and forced, then I want to hear him because I need to know how to do that..." read more
“I kept telling our church, ‘if this guy [Doug] can do what he claims he can do, namely teach us how to share our faith in a way that is not weird and forced, then I want to hear him because I need to know how to do that – and I am a pastor!’  Doug did indeed deliver as promised, showing us how to initiate spiritual conversations in ways that are natural.  Many in my church genuinely love those outside the church but are handcuffed in their ability to initiate conversations about spiritual topics that do not weird out the person they are talking to. Doug helped us over that hurdle.”
"...You can tell that Doug Pollock lives the life of engaging people in natural conversations of faith..." read more

“Doug’s presentation to our church was engaging, real, funny and life-changing. Doug has a way of relating to the ‘every man/woman among us.’ Some people have a knack for taking something most people feel awkward about and making it seem so doable. Sharing faith is one of those things.  You can tell that Doug Pollock lives the life of engaging people in natural conversations of faith. It isn’t just ‘talk’ for him.  It was a pleasure having him at our church.”

"...What the God Space seminar did for us was to call us back into the game..." read more

“Our church is comprised of engineer, medical and military officer types. Not the most creative or expressive in the world. Nor am I as a pastor-teacher! What the God Space seminar did for us was to call us back into the game, help us see our ‘golf course’ more accurately and make us excited about the Not-Yet-Christians God has already put in our paths.”

"...It has been years since I have seen such a grass-root buzz like I heard among our people. Numbers of them are seeking and trying out spiritual conversations..."

“The last couple of years we have been working on developing vibrant, missional Christ-followers to engage a post-Christian America. We know that this will take a significant movement of the Spirit to pull this off, but the Lord has used “God Space” to do it. We provided 350 “God Space” books to our members. We did a 6 week sermon series, preaching through the Biblical basis and practical insights of the book. This all culminated in a workshop Doug did with our leaders on Saturday and our members on Sunday. It has been years since I have seen such a grass-root buzz like I heard among our people. Numbers of them are seeking and trying out spiritual conversations. I am convinced that God is behind all of this; and that He has used the insights from “God Space” to provide our people the right “wineskin” of evangelism for this season of God’s movement in our church.”

“God Space with Doug Pollock changed the conversation of our church. God shifted our focus from how can we get more people into our building to how can we reach more people by having natural, gospel conversations with those all around us. If you are willing to change the focus of your church (and your own life too) from inward to outward, I highly recommend Doug’s clear, practical and authentic way of advancing God’s kingdom.” Paul Beck, LCC, Loudonville, New York 518.426.0751

“Let’s face it, when it comes to telling others about Jesus, we have different reactions that prevent us from living Matthew 28:19-20, don’t we? Fear. Anxiety. Guilt. Inadequacy. Indifference. Yet, we are called to tell others about Jesus. We all feel this tension, don’t we? Well, I believe God has raised up someone to help ease the tension and to equip us to be more obedient to the Great Commission. If you are looking for someone who can provide your congregation or student body with practical and relevant tools to relate to and reach people who are resistant to, apathetic about or seeking God, I believe Doug Pollock is one of God’s best agents to do so. Doug does a phenomenal job coaching the team (Christians) to get in the game and stay in the game of sharing Jesus with others. He not only teaches principles of evangelism, he lives the principles that he teaches. Doug Pollock is truly a gift from God to the body of Jesus.” Marvin Williams, Trinity Church, Lansing MI 517-272-3836
