Yes. Both Denis and Margie are available as their schedule permits.
Contact them at email@example.com with a specific date, the type of the audience involved, the number of messages or talks, and ideas for themes or topics. Although itís not possible to simply assign their topics, they are happy to discuss what would best fit your conference or seminar.
Keep in mind that their area of expertise is discernment: engaging our pluralistic culture with the gospel and living faithfully in the ordinary of life. Expect that Denis will want to address some aspect of reading the world in light of reading the Word. Margie is limiting her speaking to readings from her memoir, The Exact Place and events in which she will only speak once.
Costs. They do not have a set fee, but Ransom's Board has set two policies we request be followed: First, all expenses (travel, housing, materials, etc.) need to be covered (checks payable to Ransom Fellowship). And second, since they make a living through this ministry, an honorarium is requested. For Denis speaking over a full weekend we request a minimum of $1000; if the speaking also includes sessions earlier in the week or on Sunday at a church, we request a minimum of $1500 (check made payable to Ransom). For Margie's reading or speaking we request a minimum of $250 (check made payable to her).
A few details. For several reasons (including age and health concerns) they need to be housed in a hotel rather than in a home--at least Hampton Inn/Marriott Hotel accommodations are more than adequate. In most cases they will choose to drive rather than fly, following the advice of physicians. They will usually bring an assistant who helps with driving and other tasks, and her accommodations and meals will be included with their expenses. At your conference or seminar, they will also want to set up a literature table where copies of Critique and Notes from Toad Hall will be available (free), copies of Margie's memoir, The Exact Place will be for sale, and where people can sign up for Ransomís mailing list.
Flexibility is possible. If these amounts or conditions are impossible for you, please let the Haacks know when you contact them, since we don't want finances to be the final issue in determining their speaking.
