Lamont HartmanLead Pastor / Emmaus Church, Santa Ana, CA
I met Sam Song through a mutual friend just before planting Emmaus Church in downtown Santa Ana. From the moment we met Sam's posture was to cultivate what God placed on my heart. Sam was flexible with our schedule and met with my core team to discuss mission, values, and schedule the first six months meetings. He was patient with us through the whole process of asking us the right questions at critical junctures. We were blown away to see Sam at our first service support our endeavor. I highly recommend Sam for any consulting needs.

No one thinks like Sam. Nobody connects seemingly distant dots like Sam. In a world where your most valuable assets are fresh thinking and deep insights, Sam is like a shot of Redbull for your venture.

I was first introduced to Sam at a time when I felt alone and was unclear on my direction. Sam opened me up to a network of like-minded individuals who were in a similar place as me. He provided a safe environment to explore ideas, to inspire one another, and to seek ways we could each use our unique gifts to help others. I was guided, encouraged, inspired, and most of all, no longer alone in my endeavor. I’m so thankful for those initial meetings and continued support which enables me to pursue my current direction. Sam’s goal to “be kind and stay curious” is reflected in the way he cares, listens, and his desire to help. I continually walk away refreshed, inspired, and excited after every meeting with Sam.

Sam Song is a very thoughtful creative. Rarely do the qualities of sharp thinking and creativity come together in a person as well as it does in Sam. With his wide experience, genuine care, and overall kind and encouraging demeanor, Sam is a true source of inspiration to anyone who is blessed enough to meet him or work with him. I personally have benefited greatly from our friendship and conversations – especially in my early stages of setting up a nonprofit organization on calling and mentorship. Sam is one of those people whom you'll never forget and always be glad you met.

Times spent with Sam Song have helped me to reflect on matters of life that truly matter. He is an encourager, explorer, storyteller and visionary thinker who celebrates in contributing to the success of others. With a unique mix of wisdom, creativity and clarity, he has a passion to see people be developed and find God’s calling for their life by leading conversations toward discovery of something deeper and more meaningful. I am grateful for the fresh perspective he has added to my own journey as a leader, a pastor, a creative and a follower of Jesus.
