Arrange a Presentation

Keith Wasserman has been traveling and speaking about being involved in the lives of the excluded for over 36 years. Keith speaks 80-100 times a year around the US on topics related to how the church in-action cares for those who are vulnerable, those considered ‘unimportant’; those who struggle with poverty and those scripture calls “the widow, the orphan and the stranger”. He speaks at Sunday morning worship services, youth groups, university classes, seminary classes, men’s groups, women’s groups and civic clubs.

Presentation topics:

  • HAVING A PASSION FOR COMPASSION: a motivational talk about being involved in the lives of people who cannot repay us. Keith explores the contemporary values of worship, fellowship, discipleship and evangelism and explains how these cherished kingdom values still fall short of God’s will for the church to DO JUSTLY!
  • GOD GOES THE DISTANCE: A motivational talk about how Jesus relates to the woman from Samaria in John chapter four. Keith explains Jesus’ unique approach to conversation with this woman and how this relates to Jesus’ approach to people who have experienced rejection and abuse.
  • GOOD WORKS PHILOSOPHY OF MINISTRY: An interesting explanation on the five areas of the Good Works ministry.
  • LIFE PRAYERS: A motivational talk about the adversity revealed in the lives of Joseph, Job and Jesus. This presentation focuses on the importance of having life prayers and how these prayers shape us into deeper people who love and know Christ.
  • THE MISSION: This message explores the five questions Moses asks God in Exodus three. Keith explains that everyone in mission must ask these very questions and that if people are not asking these questions, they are not in mission.
  • THE RITE OF PASSAGE: A Power Point presentation on the rite of passage year Keith and Darlene took their son Timothy on to give him a lens through which he would see people in poverty around the world and a reference point for the rest of his life.
  • WITH WHOM IS GOD CONCERNED? This talk reveals the people God is most concerned about and why. Keith explores the issues facing the three people groups spoken about in scripture over and over again: The widow, the fatherless and the stranger.
  • HOMELESS BY CHOICE? This message explains why Keith has taken journeys into 11 cities in the US and what he has learned from being homeless by choice.
