I can't begin to thank you enough for coming to Woodbury Sunday night. Our folks
the evening. I want to let you know how much I
appreciate the fact that you seemed genuinely glad to
be "here." Too often,
speakers/entertainers will come
in, do their "routine" and it is obvious that
just going through the motions. But, the folks at
Woodbury (including myself) were so grateful that you
made us feel special.
I am going to contact Larry Lewey. We would like to
work out for you to come again in June.
Drew Corbett, Pastor, Woodbury Baptist Church
Greetings from chilly Pennsylvania!
Just want to say how much of a blessing and fun you were at
our singles gathering. You really connected with a lot of
people and I've heard nothing but great comments about the
event. We would love to have you back again!

Lanny, Thank you for taking care of my people!

Moody did an incredible job for the annual meeting of the
Alabama Baptist Religious Education Association. He
was the after dinner entertainment and was almost
better than dessert! After being challenged and
stretched all day, we wanted to relax and laugh together
after dinner. Lanny helped us to do just that, until
it started hurting after laughing too long and hard. Lanny’s
humor is hilarious, yet clean, which is just what we were
looking for. God intends that we should have a good
Westwood Baptist Church, Alabaster, Alabama
a perfect fit for our Freedom Festival 2002. Our
church sponsored around the Fourth of July a block party for
the community with several of the neighboring churches
participating as well. Lanny did a wonderful job of
getting the audience's attention through the use of laughter
and then shared in a powerfully effective way the difference
Christ alone can make! I heartily recommend Lanny
Moody and his ministry to you!
Big Sandy Baptist Church, Tuscaloosa, Alabama
Thank you for the gift of laughter. I
was blown away by the responses of my teachers on Wednesday
and even on Monday night before you left. They were so
appreciative of the experience and evidently really needed
to laugh badly. Everybody has junk in their lives and always
taking care of it that they don't take time to really slow
down and laugh. I am so glad Becky recommended you to me and
that it worked out. Nanci Bryant told me she had contacted
you in regards to her job. I hope they can use you. Scott
our Minister of Music really enjoyed you, too.
I hope you will consider
returning next year for a repeat performance.
"Sing"cerely, Melanie Sauer,
First Baptist Church Woodstock, GA, Children's Choir
You entertained us last night at First
Baptist Church Woodstock for the choir teacher's
appreciation dinner. I laughed so much that my cheeks were
still cramped after I got home, and I'm still giggling a day
later. It was a wonderful release to laugh so much, and it's
refreshing to hear really funny material that’s really
clean. (I was the unsuspecting victim who volunteered to
“assist” your routine).
I am the HR Manager for a 200-employee company, and I've
forwarded your name and website to our planning team for the
future. By the way, Mr. Dynamic, I think I interviewed you
for a job here last week – yes, that was definitely you.
You look just like you did when you came in for the
interview, glasses and teeth and all. So your act must not
really be that much of a stretch from your everyday life…
There are many different ways to present God's work of
redemption through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ to a
lost and dying world. Comic relief is one way that I have
just been introduced to in a very comical, relaxed and
Lanny Moody presents Jesus with Laughter and excitement
in a very unique way. I highly recommend him to your church,
your youth group or any gathering to present Jesus in a very
different and effective way.

Brother Lanny, It is with great joy that I write you to say
thank you for your ministry of humor. You were a great
success for our Koinonia Banquet. Everyone thought your
humor was refreshing and well-mannered. We have had no
complaints, which is a first for us! Even when we laugh at
ourselves, we realized it was good for us. We appreciate
your special calling and we shall call on you again.
Your Fellow Servant-Brother... In Christ,

Missionary, Fairburn, GA
"I can't remember the last time I laughed so
hard;" was the common sentiment of everyone who
"experienced" Lanny Moody. Lanny, thank you so
much for coming to spend time with our youth. They were
amazed by you; and I was amazed by the message that you
deliver -- that the Christian life is one that is full of
joy, fun and especially laughter. We will continue to pray
for you and your ministry.
I highly recommend Lanny Moody for your next youth event.
Nate Juvinall, Youth Minister,
Northside United Methodist Church, Atlanta, GA
Lanny, I cannot tell you how you blessed us during
our Banquet. Our folks are still talking about that night.
The day after the banquet as I walked around before
School, I came across several “Lanny Wanna bes”
as they attempted to give their best impression of “Mr.
Dynamic.” According to what I saw, you've got the corner
on the market as they seemed to only muster up something
that resembled “Mr. Mediocre.” Thanks again for your
wonderful gift of humor, your unbelievable spirit and most
of all your love for Christ. We want you back soon. Eddie.
PS. Here is my stab at a recommendation. I
can use it. Lanny Moody a.k.a. “Mr. Dynamic” has
got to be the funniest man on two legs. For almost an hour,
we were drowning in our own tears of laughter. At one point
I almost begged him to stop for a few moments so we could
take on a little oxygen. He is everything you would ever
want in a Christian comedian. God has called him into this
ministry ... you should call him for yours.
Eddie Lightsey, Minister of Music,
West End Baptist Church, Clanton, AL
is one of the most unique Christians I have ever
met. He has the
together. Our Single Adults thoroughly enjoyed
experiencing Lanny. And it is an experience. Lanny is
a must-have for your ministry.
Philip Nation, Singles Minister,
First Baptist Church, Jonesboro, GA
Lanny does an awesome job of relating to teenagers.
He draws them in with his humor and then lands them
with the Truth. Through Lanny, students come to know
the Lord. You can't ask for more than that!
Jerry Adair, Minister of Youth,
County Line Baptist Church, Lithia Springs, GA
Lanny, my husband Jason and I are at New Heights Baptist church.
have enjoyed having you with us the past 2 nights and can
hardly wait for the 2 more nights to come! I
have to tell you, my husband, Jason is a fireman so whatever
you plan to catch on fire tonight you better watch out!
HA-HA! Thank you so... much for coming out to our
church! As I've told many of my friends that I've
invited, you are so... great at reaching the whole
with your message. No matter if their 1 or 101.
Your message reaches ALL! You know there are some
people out there who don't like to listen to preachers, but
that's why I like listening to you so... much is because if
those people aren't careful they just might learn something
about God's word! Thanks again, Lanny! My
husband and I have already learned so... much! We look
forward to seeing you tonight!
As a Pastor have you ever experienced a “cordial laugh”?
Unfortunately we all have had those occasions in the church
where we told a joke and the congregation’s reaction was
really just a cordial response or a polite laugh. I promise,
with Lanny Moody, your people won’t have to laugh just to
be polite. In fact, they will laugh even if they don’t
want to. Lanny has a remarkable way of opening people up,
tearing down defenses, and then presenting a wholesome
Christian message that is both uplifting, funny and true all
at the same time. I would not hesitate recommending Lanny
Moody to my very best of pastor friends. I hope you can find
a way to use him in your church. After your stomach stops
hurting from all the laughter, you’ll be glad you
Steve King, Pastor,
Gentian Baptist Church, Columbus, GA
Dear Lanny, I want you to know how much we enjoyed you
Saturday night. Everyone's walking around quoting your
lines. I know we were a small crow compared to some of your
other performances but thankfully you don't judge your
concert by group size. It’s rare that a small church can
have quality high-end entertainment. Brother, we did. It was
a blessing to watch my youth wipe the tears from their eyes.
Many of them came into Sunday School the next morning
complaining about how sore they were from laughing so hard.
We will have you back, our staff enjoyed you also and have
requested information on how to get in touch with you for
other events. Keep on throwing it out there and watch God do
even more amazing things.
Rance Parker, Minister Of Students,
First Baptist Church, Acworth, GA
Lanny, I can't thank you enough for what you did for the
Valentines Banquet this year. I got so many compliments on
how well everyone enjoyed it. That was the first time we had
done a comedian and I honestly didn't know how it would be
received. I can say without any reservations that every
person; every age enjoyed that evening. You showed them how
to worship the Lord through laughter. I personally recommend
you to any church group who is looking for entertainment
that makes an impact.
Andy Futch, Minister of Activities & Family Life,
Heritage Hills Baptist, Conyers, GA
"I have gotten to know Lanny personally in recent
years and have come to love him deeply. Lanny is a unique
individual with a rare gift of communication and humor. I
have used Lanny on several occasions and intend to use him
in the near future for youth and church-wide events. Lanny's
humor is outrageous, piercing, and convicting. He is as
refreshing as he is deep. I must give you a warning: If your
congregation is more concerned about being socially and
politically correct than reaching teenagers and adults for
Christ, he may not be the one for you, but if you're looking
to reach out to those who desperately need Jesus, he will "rock

Drama Festival Coordinator,
"If laughter doeth good like a medicine, then I can
assure you that Lanny Moody will Bring healing to your
congregation! Lanny has been given a gift of ministering to
people by making them laugh at themselves in life
situations. It is a delight to recommend a Christian who is
a comedian and will have folks rolling in the aisles with
humor that is completely and totally clean. It
is a joy to recommend Lanny Moody to your congregation.”
"Ike" Reighard, Pastor,
North Star Church,
Not only is Lanny a very talented comedian, but his
Gospel presentation was powerful and effective. Creative is
the word for how he used laughter to get our attention, then
before you know it, we were face to face deciding our
Randy Mimbs, Pastor,
Liberty Baptist Church, Dublin, GA
"Thank you for sharing with our Adult and youth
Choirs, you did GREAT and our folks loved it. Many have said
they have never "laughed so hard". Your humor and
ability to make people laugh is a gift from God. Most
importantly, thank you for sharing about what Christ has
done in your life. Only Jesus can take a life wrecked by sin
and place a song in that same heart and laughter in that
same mouth. My prayer is that God will continue to use you
to spread the Gospel and be a strong witness for Him. We
look forward to having you back."
Minister of Music,
Second Baptist Church, Warner Robins, GA
“Lanny is one of the most popular speakers I bring in
for entertainment. I have used him for youth and college
retreats.” He has always done a great job.

First Baptist Church, Atlanta, GA
Lanny, I’ve heard great comments from our singles after
you gave them a night they will never forget! When you came
to do a Sunday night concert for the whole church, I was
wondering how you could entertain and reach such a
diversified group of ages. Everyone from age 6, to the age
of 87 years old loved it. Thanks for coming, you made me
look good for inviting you. I have to give it to you man,
Norman Grizzle, Singles Minister,
The people are still talking about it, four months
later ! What Lanny does is not a performance, it is a
definite ministry that God has gifted him to do. He will be
back again and again.
Larry Lawrence, Students
Celebration Baptist, Tallahassee, FL
Lanny, Everyone loved getting to know you. I heard many
comments on how you worked all of the age groups into your performance.
David Fox, Austell Georgia Baptist
Lanny, it is great to know you are available to always
bring your wacky world of comedy and the love of Christ to
our youth camps. I am excited about having you come share
your ministry with our entire church this summer.
Stockdale, Student Minister,
Northside Baptist Church,

The guy communicates the Joy of the Lord. Refreshing,
in your face evangelism!! He
will be back...soon.

"I laughed, I laughed, I laughed.... Lanny Moody
has a refreshing humor that is uniquely his own style. Our
people were rolling in the aisles. I know that sounds like a
cliche`, but it's true.
Brian Hook, First Baptist
Church, Naples FL
Your comedy routine kept us all laughing. We
certainly could relate to many of the situations you shared.
I have passed your material on to others, and have
recommended you also.

Lanny, Thank you for being so warm and friendly to all
the youth, as well as the adults at camp. You broke down
"walls" the minute you walked onto the ball field
Tuesday afternoon. There is no doubt you have a genuine love
of people and want to share Jesus with them.
