I have heard few apologists for the Christian faith who are able to give a more cogent presentation of the importance of having a decidedly Biblical worldview. Jonathan is equally comfortable and equally effective teaching teachers or challenging middle schoolers. You won't leave a session in which he is presenting without a nugget of gold that you will carry with you for years to come.
Superintendent, Fredericksburg Christian School. Fredericksburg, VA
Jonathan Nazigian was a teacher, friend, and mentor to me all throughout my high school years. he used expert communication to convey meaningful and powerful messages to us, his students. He taught us in class as well as in the way he acts in his life necessary lessons regarding Christ, the Gospel, and our interaction with the world as Christians. Jonathan Nazigian was one of the largest influences shaping me into the person I am today.

It has been a distinct pleasure knowing Mr. Nazigian for the past 8 years. He has been a wonderful teacher, mentor, and mission-trip leader to our boys. In addition, my wife and I participated in several mission trips with Mr. Nazigian and witnessed first-hand his outstanding moral character, along with his communication and leadership skills. Our family highly trusts and respects Mr. Nazigian!
Jon Nazigian is a powerful and connective speaker whose passion creates an impact on all he works with. I have had the privilege of working with him in varying settings, from having him as a teacher, to partnering with him in working with local youth, as well as working under his leadership in a camp setting. In all these areas I have witnessed his zeal, wisdom, and expertise in public speaking, leadership development, teaching, and mentorship. His leadership had a profound impact on my personal development, and now years later I have the privilege of traveling and speaking and serving in multiple leadership capacities. I still use skills that Jon taught me in high school.

Younglife Director, Addision County, Vermont
I got my start in youth ministry under Jon’s supervision 25 years ago. Our lives have overlapped most every summer since. Not only is Jon a talented communicator, but as a leader he has always put relationships over program. I have benefitted from his gifts and talents and his love for God and for people; I am confident you will too.
In the years of knowing Mr. Nazigian, I have been privileged to be one of his leadership students and a camp counselor and supervisor at the youth camp where he was the Director. I have seen him lead first-hand, and he easily exemplifies the integrity and character that others aim to emulate. He is very personable, skillful, and impactful when communicating truth and wisdom to students. I am a better servant and a better leader for having known him.
The Leadership Institute that Mr.Nazigian created gave me very valuable and essential leadership skills that I carry with me to this day. He placed a heavy focus on learning the strong fundamentals of being a Christian leader and how to use those skills out in the world today. One thing that sticks out in my memory is the attention that he placed on making sure we all knew how to speak confidently in public, and then use that to defend the Christian faith. Mr. Nazigian always effectively and clearly communicated his message to ensure that his students got the most out of the leadership program.
