The award-winning author of sketches for church services, writer for Focus on the Family's Adventures in Odyssey and award winning actor enjoys being able to use his gifts to help churches and organizations.
"Times are tough," Torry said, "but that doesn't mean people don't still need to hear about God's love. I'm happy to help wherever I can."
Hearing that many churches are struggling to reach out to their communities with fewer available funds due to a decrease in giving because of the economic crisis, Torry has worked with Masterwork Productions to offer a special "Flat Rate Tour." "The rates might be flat, but the jokes won't be," he quipped.
Book Torry at a Discounted Rate
During 2009, Torry will accept requests from churches unable to to afford the full fee of his performance plus all of the extra expenses for travel and hotel. The flat rate tour will allow churches to book Torry for the flat rate of $1,500 that includes the fee and all travel expenses. Masterwork Productions will book the flight and hotel so you don't have to. Only a limited number of performances will be accepted as Torry's writing and travel schedule permits, so don't delay.
Compare this rate with other possibilities and act right away to be part of the tour. Contact us at http://firstname.lastname@example.org.
