"You speak in a way that people can understand... bridging the gap between religion and everyday life." – Jeff Cavins, Relevant Radio

“Great Job!
Great Ministry!”
Peter Herrmann, Professional business breakfast club, Modesto, CA


"Dennis, I want to say that how you speak and how you define your concept and your understanding of creation and Why We're Here... it's just incredible! I love listening to you."
– Diane, Ypsilanti, MI

"I liked Dennis' speech because he outlined what could be so many peoples' story. He exemplifies the truth searching that so many people aware of their spiritual lives go through. He shows what is possible when we allow God's graces to work in us."
– Susan Sanders, CCL teacher, Ceres, California



"This is a very important book that is greatly needed at this time. I agree that the Bible should be the ultimate resource for life and living and that the world could greatly benefit from being logically and scientifically shown that this is true." Mark Victor Hansen, Co-author, New York Times #1 Best-Selling "Chicken Soup For The Soul" series



“Dennis' message comes from a unique perspective. He speaks from authority, in effect saying, ‘I've tried everything and nothing makes one happy with oneself but a reasoned, logical realization that the God of the Bible is who He says he is, his rules are for our benefit, and I will be happier when I observe his rules’. Thought provoking and well accepted” – Larry Everson, Program Coordinator Bonneville Power, a federal agency

"The NEW BEGINNING CD puts me into ecstasy. Dennis has been given a beautiful gift from God in his music...
It is a beautiful ministry."
– Lynn Hoffman, Fiat Voluntas Tua, Tracy, CA



"When it comes to soul, Dennis Marcellino redefines the term. His remarkable tone and feel are full of passion and soulful expression... because he is a soul completely given to Jesus." – Bob Carlisle, Grammy & Dove Award, writer and singer of "Butterfly Kisses"

"Great performance. I'm your biggest fan!" Rich Peterson, music director, Aloha Christian Life Center, Beaverton, OR

"Thank you, thank you, thank you, brother! You have such a love for the Lord and it really shows in your playing. Just to hear you play is such a huge blessing! Your instrument added SO MUCH to the worship! May the Lord bless you for your servant's heart and your willingness to serve him."
– Mary Hansz, music director, at New Hope Community Church event, Portland, OR

Letter of Recommendation from an Event Planner:

Feb. 24, 2004

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

I highly recommend Dennis Marcellino as an entertaining and informative speaker. We invited Dennis to share his conversion story and he did a wonderful job. He has a background of having reached high levels as a professional entertainer and performer and it certainly showed in his presentation as the audience of 1000 responded very well to his passion, humor and music. He also performed a couple of his songs, one before and one after the speech. Like I told Dennis in an e-mail after I listened to his CDs: The “New Beginning” CD put me into ecstasy. Dennis has been given a beautiful gift from God in his music. It is a beautiful ministry. His Christmas CD is the best Christmas CD I’ve ever heard.

As a speaker he was easy to work with and very cooperative. He stayed on schedule which is very important. He spent some time afterwards talking to conference participants, signing books and CDs and told me that he was being stopped in the halls with people coming up to him to congratulate him. For example, one woman came up and told him that of all the speakers, she enjoyed his presentation best and was moved to tears by his story.

Sincerely yours,

Lynn Hoffman
Conference Director
