“Anthony spoke to High School students at our annual Human Rights Summit with grace and great intelligence. He captivated the audience with his life story, and allowed them to consider a fresh perspective on LGBT rights and LGBT-Christian dialogue. Anthony was a pleasure to host and we highly recommend him.” Amos Washington | Education Director, UN Youth SA
‘I can highly recommend Anthony Venn-Brown from Ambassadors & Bridge Builders International. Speaking on the emotionally charged topic of homosexuality in a Bible College setting is not an easy task! However, Anthony handled himself with humility and authenticity — and without the slightest hint of defensiveness or judgment. Anthony has the unique ability to open up avenues of dialogue and honest conversations in even the most hostile situations, all the while responding to students with respect and a self-depreciating humour. He truly is a ‘bridge builder’ within the kingdom of God.’ Lynn Moresi, Adjunct Lecturer – Tabor Victoria
