“Al Tennyson is the real deal! His passion for the Lord is contagious and his heart for people is genuine! I have used Al in many ways with many different age groups and his ability to relate and capture his audience is amazing. For me, integrity and character in ministry are a must and this man is a model for both. I have watched the ministry God has given Al explode over the last 10 years and here are a few reasons why. He has an excitement and love for the Word, he has a true heart for the lost, and a passion to see believers boldly walk the walk. God has blessed Al and Taryn and I would wholeheartedly recommend his ministry to you!”

Big Al has been investing in my ministry since 1995, as a young man. He has been pressing in to know God and make Him real to students and adults everywhere. I have never found another speaker with the same honesty, passion and intimate connection with his audience that Al has. This man is the real thing and that is what this world needs to see if they are going to pursue God.
