TESTIMONIALS

We are forever grateful for our friends and partners in ministry.

 

“I must say your organization is
fantastic and amazing. In a thought:  Fantastic production. Absolutely
fantastic. May God continue to bless your organization and your events. He
obviously has given you, Ryan and the team, some great talents... and you’re obviously using them wisely. Amen.”

"I can't thank you enough for all you did to make our event happen. I know it was a huge challenge in so many ways. Your consistent encouragement, wisdom and practical, hands on
assistance made all the difference in the world! You exceeded all expectations. I only wish we had let OtB do all the programming and production from the beginning. I'm sure it would have been much smoother and more fruitful.... It was a pleasure in every way to work with you and the entire OtB team." 

"I have been thinking about and praying for your organization since the event. I've had a sense of wonder how God might be using your teams' work to reach kids you'll never even know of or hear about. The potential numbers are staggering. Because of what YOU ALL ARE DOING, kids are knowing God more fully, or for the first time."

"Ron Hutchcraft Ministries believes passionately in the expertise and leadership of Outside the Box Ministries. Their leadership has taken our WLS Native youth conference from good to GREAT. We have a complete "heart-match", and recommend this team to anyone seeking to create a maximally effective, life-changing youth event to impact eternity."

"We at Dare 2 Share could not do what we do if Outside the Box did not do what they do. OtB works by our side to prayerfully create,
organize and execute these mega training events across the country.  They design the program in such a way so it has a maximum impact on the teenagers who attend."

“THANK YOU for the most outstanding job you did this past summer for [our event]. You are truly amazing! And I am so very glad that I pushed the
Diocese to hire you for the rally - you are fantastic!”

“Ryan and his team worked tirelessly and diligently to make our [event] a huge success. Ryan is a very patient and consistent director.  His personality fits perfectly in the high stress business of event planning and execution.  I give him and the entire Outside the Box Ministries team my highest recommendation and will certainly use them for any future event endeavors.
• Incredible customer service: the team was very accommodating and intuitive to what we needed.
• Extremely flexible with our budget and last minute hiccups and changes.
• Great blend of professionalism and relationship building.
• Focused: listened well to what we wanted and tried very hard to make it happen.
• Entire crew went above and beyond what was expected.
• Technology support and resources were top notch.
• Collaborative effort was exceptional: the team never left us hanging, and always led with “what can we do to help.”
• Very sensitive to our event mission:  making disciples and following the leading of the Holy Spirit.  Specifically, Ryan and his team not only supported, but actually enhanced everything we wanted to do to achieve our mission.”

“I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed working with you this week! This morning at mass, Fr. preached about humility and how crucial it is to our ability to serve God. Being behind the scenes as you are is a genuinely humbling place to serve, but at least some of us knew that the whole thing would have crumbled like a cookie had you not been there for us!”

“Ryan is an amazing resource/consultant/tech director for us. After seeing his work the last couple years and working with him onsite the last few weeks, it is clear that his work ethic and his faith are of paramount importance. That's hard to find in this business - as you know.”

“It is one of the coolest things to be able to work with people who you trust with so much responsibility because we know you have our very best interest at heart. Ryan, it is always a privilege to see your professionalism. I feel you share with the same intensity and passion that we share. That makes us realize that we are all working toward the same goals in each of our events. Thanks again for all you do. You bring such value to our events. I am thankful for what you do, and how you do it. Thanks for

being our friend!”

“Congratulations on a great job with the [event]!! More than once [the speaker] commented on the outstanding production efforts with the sound, music, screens, roving reporter, things she has not seen or done at conferences in the past. And this is from a lady that has a speaking engagement probably every week of the year!!! Outstanding Job!!”

"It was a great blessing to work with you and the fantastic group of OtB staff...the quality that you brought to the table was highly needed and
appreciated.  We could not have done this without all the speakers and the OtB production team. With a
"kingdom project" like this, your
sacrifices to give of your time, talent, knowledge and heart have in no way gone unnoticed.  We share our joy with you over the success of LiveAbove year one, while we vision cast for next year's victories (onward and
upward)! May the Lord bring great fruit to you and your organization for having His heart about transitioning students."

“I received an email yesterday from
a speaker just confirming that he
received his Day Sheet.  Something in his tone said that he was not used to this kind of organization and
forethought. I want you to know that you're a great team and that your hard work is making a difference. Your organization communicates love, care, and excellence, which makes the speakers feel appreciated
(because not all conferences strive for excellence).  When this happens, they talk to others about the event which helps the buzz to spread. The details you are managing are helping us grow in the right ways. Thanks so much for all you are doing for Christ." 

“What a wonderful, energetic, moving and Spirit-filled Assembly you and the whole staff, committee and Diocese put together.  To God give glory!”

“Thank you for your leadership during [the event] last week. I am grateful for the great communication that we
received leading up to the conference, and for how well you cared for my team.”

Thanks Ryan!  Another beautiful conference thanks to you and the many people behind the scenes who make it all seem magical!!  Thanks for your continued support for our diocesan events.

"Ryan has been our Technical Director since 2015 and there's no better person in the Catholic/Protestant production world to put your mind at ease regarding your event. He is a total genius at producing events - and every one of the 15 Host Churches have absolutely loved working him and his tech team!"

"I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks to you for the incredible with OTB did at [event]. What a wonderful crew to work with. Your staff was remarkable, easy to work with and flexible to our needs. They had a tough job (trust me, I’m aware of some of the hurdles during this event….), and they worked through all of this with grace.
 I’m so impressed with your company. Thank you for all you did in the set up and planning for this event, and thanks to your crew for their wonderful help during the event. What a blessing!

Still thinking this morning about how amazing of a job you and your team deliver year after year at [event]. The stage set this year was fantastic. Ours is a holy partnership that I am very

grateful to God for.”

“I couldn't imagine a better produced event than what Ryan delivered.”

“I want you to know that I have the deepest gratitude for what you have done for us in the hard work in executing a nearly perfect production of [event].  Your dedication is

formidable, on all fronts!”

"WOW!!!!! You did it again! What a spectacular event.  Congratulations!! You started a tradition that will positively strengthen the faith of generations for generations to come! So wonderful!!! I thank God for you and the ministry of your dedicated staff and volunteers!"

WOW…you have to be the best, most prepared and most thoughtful guy we have ever worked with…even better than all of the big festivals we’ve worked with.

Also – I figured you’d all appreciate his last comment.  I already responded to him and gave all credit where it is due – to Ryan and Justin!!!  Great work OTB Ministries….coming from a guy who speaks as extensively as he does….quite an impression you made.

Ryan- It was an honor and pleasure to work alongside of you on this event. My heart is full of gratitude for you and the many gifts you bring to the table, as well as the friendship we have shared in the last 5 years. I am so thankful to God for you!!.... I look forward to the upcoming year….. Again – I sincerely appreciate all of the kindness and support and encouragement you have shown to me.
