What People Have said About Steve’s Talks

“Words like dynamic, compelling, inspiring and insightful all come to mind when I think of describing Steve’s presentations. I say presentations, because they are more than just “talks”; he puts his whole heart into them. They not only provide intellectual information, they call you to a deeper and more profound understanding of Christ and His Church.”

Steve Ray is one of the greatest Catholic speakers and apologists in the country. Not only does Steve command a great knowledge of the Catholic faith, Scripture, and history, but he is passionate and enthusiastic, inspiring people to love and live out their Catholic faith. He also makes learning the Catholic faith interesting and exciting. One could say that he brings it to life. Steve Ray is a must have speaker.
~Brian Mercer, Int’l Speaker & Retreat Leader
I’ve read ”Crossing the Tiber” and heard your conversion talk many times and I thought that these were all “home runs”.  Well, I picked up a copy of your latest cd on your conversion talk at the men’s “Rekindle the Fire” men’s conference in South Bend last month and I just want to tell you that you knocked this one “OUT OF THE PARK!”  Fantastic!  I will be getting several copies of this to pass out to family and friends!  Thank you so much for your witness to Christ, Steve.  You keep honing your witness talk and it is definitely bearing fruit.  You haven’t lost any of your enthusiasm and your message is just resonating with me!  Thank you, Steve, and keep up the good work!  I’m pretty sure that you will be invited back… ~Ron B

I would like to offer my endorsement for Steve Ray as a great Catholic speaker and evangelist. His knowledge and enthusiasm made a great impact on those who heard him speak recently at St. Mary Cathedral…His story of journeying to the Catholic Church from a very strong evangelical background was also very inspiring….Steve Brings a great base of knowledge of the Holy Land and other biblical sites due to his extensive travel and research, having led countless pilgrimages for people of faith.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Don Geyman
Rector, St. Mary Cathedral

Dear Steve,Thank you so very much for a wonderful presentation at the Orlando chapter meeting. You are so very enlightened with the Spirit it overflows to all who are listening to you speaking. Cradle Catholics seem to lack the fire of you converts, but you sure did light a fire under all of us. Austin and I are looking forward to spending time with you on the October trip.Sincerely,

You were just the very thing needed to stir up a deeper appreciation of the precious truths of our faith and of the greatness of the Catholic Church. Too many of us do not realize the gift we have been given. You presentation helped us to wonder again about God’s beneficence. Many commented on the effectiveness of your words. I hope that the good God will continue to give you that holy zeal for His cause while keeping you humble in His service.Fr. Eduard Perrone
