Recognition also is being given from other industry greats with quotes such as:
"Give Them Jesus," is fresh, relevant & mature. Nothing less than I hoped for and so much more than I expected. Thanks Jaci.
- Mike Medlin, KGCB, Phoenix, AZ
"'Give Them Jesus' has a great hook that clearly reflects our values and beliefs. A song that gets you singing and causes you to take action in your faith."
- Rob Dempsey, His Radio, Greenville, SC
"The song is a call to who we are to be in Christ. I've seen a number of hurting people with signs on the side of the road begging for help. I drive by trying not to make eye contact. This song answers my question of what I'm supposed to do."
- Corey Mann, WHPZ, South Bend, Indiana
