Yes! Shepherd Press and Baker Books are partnering with Dave to offer the books at a steep discount for marriage events where Dave speaks. Often, event organizers will set a registration fee at a price point that covers the purchase of one book so that each registrant gets a marriage book. Event organizers believe this heightens the sense of value for the marriage event while also sending the attendees home with a resource that further punctuates the material that was covered.

For When Sinners Say I Do, event organizers simply need to go to https://www.shepherdpress.com/ and type in the coupon code: Harvey to receive the discount.

For I Still Do materials (book, study guide or devotional), event organizers can secure a 40% discount at www.direct2church.com. Free shipping is also available for a purchase of 20 or more books.

Any event branded “I Still DO” can be supported by an adaptable branding package including a study guide, graphics, videos, pull quotes and other material.

It’s customary for the hosting church or ministry to assume responsibility for travel, hotel, and food costs. Groups often invite Dave’s wife, Kimm, a gesture that is deeply appreciated but not often possible.

The speaker fees are as follows:

  • Full conference or retreat (3–4 messages and Q & A) – $3500. (the fee could be greater if the distance from SW Florida is further (west of the Mississippi, or anywhere that may require more travel days as a buffer).
  • Individual marriage message(s) – email Dave (dave@revdaveharvey.com) for specific pricing details.

Please let us know if this fee structure would impose a financial burden on your church or organization. Teaching this material is a privilege for Dave and ultimately represents a ministry and an opportunity to serve.
