John is Taking New Clients!

Beginning in late June, John is available to take new clients this summer, through August. His usual MO is to hold an initial two-hour conversation with a child's parent or parents, which is billed at $250 per hour and paid by check or CC in advance. During that initial conversation, John begins making specific recommendations. His goal is to charge no more, long term, than the initial $500, but no more than $750 total. Follow-up phone calls of less than 20 minutes are not billed (unless they become frequent). More than 20 minutes are billed at $125 per 30 minutes. Because John does not (and will not) administer tests or assign diagnoses, insurance companies will not cover his services, and although John is licensed to practice psychology, he counsels from a biblical point of view. John will not consult concerning a child who is in treatment with another mental health professional. Any such relationship would have to be formally terminated prior to the parents' first conversation with John. If interested, please fill out the Personal Consultation Form here, and John will get in touch personally.


John's Newest Book, Getting to Heaven, Now Available!

For quite some time I've wanted to write a book that pertains to some aspect of Christian apologetics and theology. I had an idea, but I did not feel I had the right qualifications. You know, a degree in divinity or some such thing. Willie and I moved to New Bern, NC, in July of 2014 and shortly thereafter became members of Tabernacle Baptist Church, which is within walking distance of our 160 year-old home. One of TBC's "draws" was the pastor, Dr. Scott Gleason. He is simply the best expository preacher I've ever encountered...and keep in mind that on many Sundays through any given year, I am listening to yet another preacher in yet another church somewhere in America. I've heard great preachers and I've heard so-so preachers and I've heard quite a few in between great and so-so. Scott Gleason, make no mistake about it, is a GREAT preacher. After attending TBC for maybe six months, I approached Dr. Scott with my idea and asked if he was interested in being co-author. Two years later, the book - Getting to Heaven: A Guide for the Perplexed - is finally off the presses! As the title reflects, the book addresses what is one of the most important questions anyone can ever ask: "How do I become assured of going to Heaven when my  time in a body of flesh and blood is done?" Amazingly enough, no one has ever written a book like this! Dr. Scott and I spent over a year researching, writing, researching, and writing. When we felt that we were finished, we submitted the book to two Christians we greatly respect.

Jim Burns, Founder of HomeWord Ministries in California wrote back: "For me, the sign of a good book is how many people I'd like to pass the book to when I am finished. When I finished reading Getting to Heaven I could not think of even one person who would not benefit. John Rosemond and Pastor Scott Gleason have the rare ability to take somewhat complicated and sometimes controversial truths and bring profound insights. I loved this book and so will you."

Dr. Allan Mosely, Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew Studies at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary: "Socrates said, 'The unexamined life is not worth living.' It's shocking how many people do not examine fundamental questions like 'Where did I come from?' and 'What happens to me after I die?' Plenty of people consider themselves to be intellectually curious yet they've only absorbed the PC ideas of Western culture and unthinkingly adopt those ideas as their own. This book will challenge readers to think again. In an engaging style, Rosemond and Gleason present ideas that may challenge post-modern assumptions, but the ideas are time-worn, worthy of consideeration, and right. I loved this book and suspect many others will love it and find help in it too."

Our purpose is two-fold: First, to provide guidance and hope to people - Christians and otherwise - who have asked the above question but never felt they got a good answer (and the authors are praying, of course, that the book moves lots of uncertain folks in the One Right Direction, toward the Way, the Truth, and the Life); second, to provide Christians with an evangelical tool that will strengthen their faith and hopefully help them lead others to faith in Christ Jesus.

John is the busiest speaker in the parenting field and he consistently receives superlative ratings for both his engaging speaking style and encouraging message. John’s purpose is to inspire parents to take control of their families and raise children who will assume responsible citizenship as adults.

Booking John to speak at your church, school, or organization is a simple process:

  • First, either fill out and send the BOOK JOHN email form (link below) or call John’s office at (704) 860-4711. In either case, please give us your phone number and a good time to call you back.
  • John will call you back personally within 48 hours.
  • John’s standard speaking fee is $3500 plus travel expenses (round-trip coach airfare or personal car mileage (at standard rate), rental car (if necessary), hotel (usually a mid-level property such as Hampton Inn or SpringHill Suites), and a per-diem of $80 to $100 for meals, gas, tolls, and other incidental expenses.
  • John’s fee covers up to five hours of speaking on one day in a location east of the Rocky Mountains. If the event spans more than one day or takes place west of the Rockies, a slight increase in the fee may apply. John is also willing to adjust his fee for small groups such as local homeschool associations, small churches, or start-up schools.
  • After agreeing on the date(s) and fee, John will send a contract to the sponsor. The contract is one page in length. It contains no unusual clauses. In his own words, John is a “sponsor-friendly” speaker. He makes absolutely no demands and considers himself the sponsor’s employee for the duration of an event.
  • Within two weeks of receiving the contract, the sponsor returns it, signed, along with a 50 percent deposit.
  • John’s office staff provides consultation with sponsors concerning all aspects of an event, the goal of which is to ensure to the greatest degree possible a win for the sponsor and a win for attendees. With proper planning and promotion, it is usually the case that a sponsor will cover or come very close to covering the entire cost of an event.
  • Upon John’s arrival on site, the sponsor pays John for the balance of the fee and his pre-billed travel expenses.
  • John does not use a “dressing room” but is in the lobby greeting, talking to attendees, answering questions and signing books both before and after an event.
  • In more than thirty years as a full-time speaker, John has never been a no-show and has only been late (by ten minutes) on one occasion due to two cancelled flights. You can rely on John to arrive on-site 90 – 120 minutes prior to the start of a talk.

For a personal, no-obligation call-back from John, please complete and send the email request form. Thank you!


"What a joy it was to host John here at Church of the Savior over these past few days. The numerous positive responses I have already personally heard and the vivid response seen in the number of books sold are a testament to the importance of his ministry. At last count 561+  people heard him speak in his various seminars and close to 1000 people who attended our regular Sunday services heard his important message as well. As youth pastor here at Church of the Savior - and I speak for our Children’s Ministry Director as well - we are excited to see the fruit of his message and teaching over the years as parents put into practice all they have learned this weekend." ~David Schnake, Youth Pastor, Church of the Savior, Nicholasville, KY
