About

These messages interrupt our crazy busy lives. They show up in our Twitter feeds and speak to what’s happening in the world at that very moment. They help us think about God. They remind us that He exists, that He is present in the universe and He’s there by our side. That life is not as haphazard as it seems and there’s a reason why you’re here, in this place, today.  You’ve come to the right place to find out about God.

He wants to connect with you. God loves you; He is pursuing you; and He wants a relationship with you forever. So keep asking questions. You are here, at this moment. And that is reason enough to believe He cares.

History

1999 Newspaper clipping from Rhode Island featuring "I love you, I love you, I love you. - God" billboard.

The history of GodSpeaks begins in 1998, when an anonymous donor contacted an advertising agency with this idea for a local billboard campaign that would get people thinking about God. The vision was set and the messages were created, establishing a concept that had never before been done.  A series of billboards would be put up with simple, easy-to-read messages in white type against a black board, all with quotes “signed” by God.

The donor wanted no logo, address, website or phone number published.  He wanted just straight forward messages that would rightly represent the God of the Bible.  Their intention was to spark thoughts in readers’ minds about God and His great love for them.

The campaign was scheduled to run  for three months throughout South Florida, but was picked up by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) and used for their national public service campaign in 1999.

1999 Newspaper clipping from The Sun  Sentinel featuring "C'mon over and bring the kids. - God" billboard.As a result, GodSpeaks messages appeared on over 10,000 billboards in 200 cities across America, all free of charge, with donated space valued at $15 million. The Campaign attracted media attention everywhere.  Print and broadcast media were intrigued with the sayings, and perhaps more intrigued that someone would invest in a campaign without wanting anything in return.  “Who was this anonymous client?” they asked.  But they would never find out as the donor chose to remain anonymous and keep the attention focused on God.

GodSpeaks has since launched subsequent campaigns throughout the years with the hope of reaching even more people with messages “signed” by God.  In this day and age, with social media and the internet, we have the potential to reach millions of people with messages of God’s love and forgiveness.

Though the words on the boards have changed since the 90’s, the underlying message has not.  GodSpeaks wants people around the world to know that God loves them, He values them, and  He wants a relationship with them forever.
