Praise for Never Alone by Dr. Albert L. Reyes

“In a time when the family is under violent attack, Never Alone calls you back to the truth about God’s sacred design for family, humanity, and flourishing. Albert L. Reyes builds the case for the family from a biblical worldview and establishes the essential foundations for thriving. While the assault on the family is relentless, there is always hope. And I promise you will find it within the pages of this book!”

Speaker Inquiries

Thanks for your interest in inviting me to speak at your event or conference.


My passion for speaking includes topics of serving vulnerable children, strengthening families, justice, leadership, management, leading social transformation, and bringing the Kingdom of God near to those who need hope.


I travel throughout the world to invest in and encourage nonprofit organizations, leaders, pastors, government officials, business leaders, students, faculty, social workers, and volunteers. These opportunities have led me to speak across the USA, Peru, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Kenya, Ethiopia, India, Bangladesh, Brazil, Russia, Morrocco, Egypt, and Norway in churches, conferences, universities, and retreat settings. These experiences remind me of the heart of God for the nations and the mission of Jesus to serve vulnerable children and families.


As an executive leader and former pastor, it is always a blessing to encourage ministry leaders and the wider Church to live out their faith in practical ways in their community and to challenge others to engage and demonstrate God’s love, mercy, and justice in the toughest situations.
