“Mike Gordon is an amazing communicator to youth and youth workers alike – he is like a ray of sunshine breaking through an overcast sky in the midst of honest inquiry about the important things in life. He is vulnerable, honest, direct, humorous and unpretentious. He understands the culture of the day and how the Gospel of Jesus Christ can penetrate the darkness and provide eternal hope, peace and joy.”

John Wilkinson – Tyndale University & College Chancellor and
Executive Coach and Strategist, Youth Unlimited Toronto

Mike Gordon is an incredibly gifted, highly energetic, and good looking speaker! (He told me to say the good looking part) YFC Canada is thrilled to have Mike on the team, brining the good news of Jesus to youth and young adults right across Canada and around the world. Mike has sacrificed much to bring his message to youth and now we are thankful to be able to partner with him to help promote and resource and steward his gifts. Book him for any event, you won’t be disappointed!”

Tim Coles – Sr. Director of Operations of Youth for Christ Canada

“Mike is one of the most creative, honest speakers I’ve heard in a long time.  His life journey has put him in a perfect position to speak strongly into the lives of young people and youth workers alike.  Mike’s passion for God’s word and creative communication style set him apart.”

Paul Robertson – Youth Culture Specialist

“In a reality where young people are naturally skeptical of issues of faith and people of faith, Mike Gordon is one of those few communicator who this generation wants to listen to. He brings together humour, creative stories, a deep faith and a theological understanding that challenges youth of all walks of faith, both those far from God and those who are seeking to go deeper, to engage with the message and person of Jesus.”

Matt Wilkinson – Author of Youth Ministry: Now & Not Yet

Best. Co-Host. Ever. Mike knows how to engage and infuse an audience with high energy and infectious laughter – and in the same breath – He can create a beautiful space for silence, contemplation and thoughtfulness. He’s good. He’s really good. And he loves Jesus. A lot. I’d share the stage with him, anytime.”

Melinda Estabrooks – Executive Producer at Crossroads Christian Communication Inc, TV, Radio, Podcast Host and International Speaker – www.melindaestabrooks.com

Mike Gordon is one of the most authentic speakers I have encountered. He is the same both on and off the stage! Mike’s ability to simultaneously work a crowd, and yet make personal connections with individuals is unprecedented in my experience.”

What surprised me most about Mike Gordon, was his heart for our students; students he had never met before. Mike got down on their level and spent time getting to know them. It was an incredible privilege to have Mike come and speak to our youth. He used story to wrap them up and draw them in. God has richly blessed him as a creative and dynamic communicator. We were blessed to have Mike join us at theUNDERGROUND.

The Meeting House

The best word I can use to describe Mike is authentic. His love for God, his love for others, his love for the Word and his love of sharing the Gospel is real and is evident to everyone who meets him or has the privilege of hearing him speak. His enthusiasm and energy are balanced with a warmth and compassion that speaks volumes about his faith and his passion for leading others to the Hope that is in Christ.”

Canadian Bible Society

“In 36 years of ministry with Christian university students and having planned over 2000 Chapel services, I can count on two hands the speakers I have heard that can connect with a Chapel audience like Mike Gordon. He will be a regular on my Chapel schedule for years to come!”

“Mike keeps it real. He connects at a real level with youth. Mike’s stories and authenticity shows the students he understands their world and then he invites them to encounter Jesus in their world. Mike has such a servant heart, not only does he connect with students from the stage, but he connects with them in conversations and during the fun”

Mike a fantastic communicator, he is energetic, authentic and speaks from his heart. Not only that, he relates to students on a personal level. Not once did I see him without a students at his side, even joining some small groups throughout the weekend. If you want someone who really takes the time to invest in your students, he’s your man!”
