Conferences and Speaking

Would you (or your church) like to host one of my conferences or invite me for a speaking engagement?

For guest preaching, I have sermons on multiple topics. For conferences I speak on my book topics:

  • Marriage and family
  • Trials and suffering
  • Finances and money
  • Types and shadows
  • Work and rest

If invited for a conference or speaking engagement you can expect professionally prepared and delivered messages, and prompt responses to any communication, before and after the event.

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Speaking Questions

Do you offer anything to attendees?

Attendees receive a handout with lessons and discussion questions from the messages. If you’d like an example, here is the Marriage God’s Way Conference Handout and Enduring Trials God’s Way Conference Handout. Scroll down to see a sample page from each handout.

Will you help advertise my event?

I will advertise your event on my social media and send the info to my newsletter subscribers. You can also offer copies of my books as gifts to increase registrations. I recommend creating a Facebook event page, which I can attach to the events on my Facebook author page. With Facebook ads (which I can help you with, or run if you reimburse me) you can easily reach thousands of people in the surrounding area. As an example, here’s the banner a church used on their Facebook event page for a Marriage God’s Way Conference:

You can also look below at the trailer a church made for one of my conferences they hosted. I’m happy to do the same for you.

What are the titles of some of your messages?

Here are the five messages for Marriage God’s Way Conferences:
1. Temptations Facing Husbands and Wives
2. A Husband’s Love
3. A Wife’s Submission
4. How Husbands Should Treat Their Wives
5. How Wives Should Respect Their Husbands

Here are the five messages for Enduring Trials God’s Way Conferences
1. Preparing for Trials
2. Understanding Trials Versus Discipline
3. Proving Our Faith
4. God’s Plan for Maturity
5. Becoming Better or Bitter

How much do you charge?

I charge $100 for conference messages, and typically there are five messages per conference. I charge $150 for guest preaching and teaching, such as sermons and Sunday School messages.

Can your conferences serve as outreaches?

Yes, and I recommend this for three reasons. First, it gets the Gospel to more people. Second, my conferences are attractive to the unchurched. Unbelievers won’t attend missions conferences or prayer meetings, but they want strong marriages and help with finances.

What is the schedule for conferences?

Typically there are five messages spread over Friday evening and Saturday: two on Friday and three on Saturday, or one on Friday and four on Saturday. But there is flexibility. There can be more or less messages, and conferences can be kept to one day or spread over three days if Sunday is included. A Q&A can also be added. Here’s a sample schedule:

Friday
—7:00PM—Introduction and Message 1
—8:30PM—Snacks and refreshments

Saturday:
—9:00AM—Message 2
—10:00AM—Break and discussion time/table talk
—10:30AM—Message 3
—11:30PM—Lunch
—1:00PM—Message 4
—2:00PM—Break and discussion time/table talk
—2:30PM—Message 5
—3:30PM—Questions and answers
—4:30PM—Conference concludes

Will you preach on Sunday too?

Typically, I’m glad to get more mileage out of my trip and preach on the Sunday after conferences.

Are your conferences interactive?

No, I do not allow questions during my messages or I won’t be able to get through all the material. I recommend having a stack of 3×5 cards for attendees’ questions, and then I answer them at the end during the Q&A. At marriage conferences my wife can join me for the Q&A, and many times the church’s pastor has also joined me, although it’s not required.

Do you do online messages?

Yes, I’ve been part of many online interviews and summits. Typically, I don’t charge for these, but I request a link to my site and the opportunity for people to download my free gift.

Do you have some sample messages?

Yes, see below, and there are more video messages on my YouTube page and plenty of audio and video messages on Sermon Audio.

Do you have endorsements?

Yes, scroll down!

Discussion Questions

  1. Why should it be encouraging to remember God is in control while you are in the middle of a trial?
  2. Have you been “building your walls” during times of peace? If yes, how? If not, how will you build in the future?
  3. What daily trials do you experience that you need to be aware of, because of their potential to wear you down?
  4. During trials, what characteristics of God can you focus on to help you better endure trials? Write down a verse (or two) to memorize that reveals this characteristic.
  5. Unbelievers and some genuine believers ask, “Why would a loving God ____?” How would you answer this question, considering 1 Peter 3:15 says we must “always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks [for] a reason for the hope that is in” us?
  6. When has God used a trial in your life to bring forth good? In other words, when have you been able to look back on a trial and see the end intended by the Lord?

Conference Trailer

A church created this trailer for one of my conferences that they hosted. Then they advertised it on social media to increase attendance. This also served as an outreach to invite unbelievers and the unchurched.

Scott has a needed message for couples today that is straight from God’s Word. Tim and I grew in some key areas after attending one of Scott’s Marriage Conferences and we have been married for 29 years and have participated in 32 marriage weekends. Good stuff!

Scott is personally reaping the blessings of tenaciously studying God’s Word and then applying it first to himself, his marriage, and his family. He insightfully and engagingly shares God’s Word and its essential practical application with others through both his speaking and writing. You will be greatly blessed and helped in your own life by what Scott has to share.

As a licensed Christian marriage counselor, I am constantly looking for sound, biblical resources to recommend to my clients who are struggling in their marriages. The Marriage God’s Way Conference is by far the best and most heart-changing marriage conference ever! Scott LaPierre teaches in a way that captivates and connects with both husbands and wives. His messages stir hearers while fostering hope and healing, and the principles taught have immediate practical application. I highly recommend this conference and Marriage God’s Way book and the accompanying workbook.

Scott is a very gifted pastor and speaker. His Christ-centered messages inspire one to faith, hope, and love; stirring up desire to be a doer of the Word, not just a hearer only.
