My name is Andaza Baiye and I am Senior Pastor at Joy Fountain in Winnipeg. My wife and I attended the Marketplace and Ministry conference in Forrest Park Illinois.
We were impacted by Doug's presentation on Monday Switch. Thank you Doug. It resonated with the very thing I believe we are called to do here in Winnipeg amongst other churches and ministries. I have always wondered and prayed about building bridges between the local church community and the everyday world we live and work in.
We need exactly what Doug is teaching here in Canada. Monday morning is a nightmare for so many, and as a pastor I see that from week to week as people struggle and I know that we have prayed and the answer has been a resounding "need for us to build a sound bridge between us and our work places and by extension the world we live in". We too need "Thank God it's Monday" here as well. Yours in His assignment, Andaza Baiye
Imaginative, soul-stirring and creative, that’s Doug Spada’s formula for communicating, both in writing and speaking to an audience. The people you lead… they will depart on mission to be more alive and aware that God can and does use work to change lives for His kingdom! Wayne Odom, EVP InTouch Ministries, Inc.
Dear Doug, I thoroughly enjoyed our time together. I appreciate your obvious love for Christ and your commitment to invest your life for the kingdom. You are a gifted communicator with a needed message for the church and those who serve The Lord working in the marketplace. Howard Dayton, Compass - finances God's way
I attended your South Africa presentation and you did a brilliant job. I saw that you interacted with the folks before the presentation. I can see that you are at a ‘higher or different’ position with the Lord now but your presentation was from a humble base and that came across very well. I thought you were successful in meeting the people new to The Monday Switch. Very professional and engaging presentation and material. Bram Davies, Pr.Eng, MTech(Eng), BSc(Eng), MBA
Doug opened our eyes and switched on the lights -- casting a compelling vision for representing Jesus Christ at work. He tied his message into our church's mission and approach. Our people really responded to Doug's humor, biblical message and practical application to everyday work. Bruce Miller, Senior Pastor, Christ Fellowship, McKinney, Texas
Hi Doug, Your talks inspired me and my wife to reconsider our view on how and when telling and sharing the gospel with non-believers. It is also important to think about our personal life and in what sense we turn our switch off. Maybe we can introduce the Monday Switch campaign in the Netherlands. Pieter van der Kwaak
The ”Transforming Mondays“ conference was a great experience for me and it was very encouraging to share the faith with so many Christians from all over the world. Thank you very much for your inspiring sermons about practicing Christianity at work and all the vivid examples, presentations and gifts (like the switches to visualize the switch topic, the Monday Morning Atheist book and the final video on Saturday morning)!

Dear Doug, We would like to thank you for inspiring and encouraging lectures during the conference in Berlin. Your lectures were very interesting and provided a lot of material to think about. Thank you very much. Warm greetings from Poland. Urszula and Jan Broda
Thank you so much for your teaching/ministry at the Conference in Berlin.....I Loved it....you spoke my heart so I was with you all the way. I work as a Pastor so it was really good for me to drink in, to have fellowship/friendship. I was challenged, refreshed and renewed...to be honest....I had a blast. May The Lord continue to guide, strengthen and empower you in your walk with Him. Keep switched on! Pete Dale, Channel Islands
Thank you so much for being so inspiring and challenging in the same time! We were moved and encouraged by the message God sent trough you! I believe we have to do something in Romanian about “the Monday Switch”. Marius Chiciudean, Brasov, Romania
Dear Doug, Just back from the conference. Your contribution to the conference was immense. CBMC Belfast has a history of presenting Jesus Christ to the business community around our country. I wish to explore the possibility of you visiting Belfast when your diary permits. David Martin
