Jon did an incredible job speaking to our student body and he is consistently one of our most requested guests from our students. The best part of having Jon was the fact that he is the same intentional person off of the stage as he is on the stage. He took the time to talk to every single student who was waiting to meet with him. The investment he made into our institution will be remembered by our audience for a long time.

The 3 Steps to Building a Winning Mindset with God
Every successful result starts with a successful mindset.
It’s not a mystery. Your thoughts turn into your actions which turn into your results.
We inherently know that, but most people don’t know what to do with that. When New York Times Bestselling author Jon Acuff and Mike Peasley PhD asked more than 10,000 people if they struggled with overthinking, they were shocked to discover the results. More than 99.5% of people said, “Yes.”
But what if it didn’t have to be that way? What if you could take all those repetitive thoughts, which Acuff calls “Soundtracks,” and make them work for you, not against you, with a new mindset? What if you could:
Retire the broken soundtracks that have been holding you back.
Replace them with new soundtracks that propel you forward.
Repeat them so often they become as automatic as the old ones.
Retire. Replace. Repeat.
Can building a winning mindset really be that easy? Can we really take every thought captive? Can we really learn how to renew our minds?
Jon Acuff says, “Yes!” As we head back to the office, back to business, back to church and back to a world that keeps changing, one thing will matter more than any other for your team – mindset.
Start building yours with surprisingly fun strategies you can implement immediately.

Jon was amazing. He really knocked it out of the park. The humor, the complex subjects made simple - win, win, win!
We have heard nothing but positive feedback from our students...they really responded well to him! Jon did a fantastic job in his presentation and in the Q and A time following. He was so kind to stick around and chat with some students afterwards who wanted to meet him as well. He fit perfectly into our current "Vocational Emergence" theme we are emphasizing in our co-curricular programming.
Jon was just as we expected, outstanding. The process for booking him and all the logistics was practically painless. I like your system! It was a great day. Jon was a delight to have for many reasons, and working with Premiere was effortless.
Jon has a brilliant way of distilling all the 'noise' that comes from launching a book, and breaking down how to easily organize and implement what's most important. He brought great clarity to what can be an overwhelming task.
