    make a point

    Hi,

    What does it mean in the sentence below? I've gooled it a lot but still didn't come with a convenient result.

    I make a point of speaking to high schools, colleges, churches of any faith, and the military as much as possible.


    From the book "Be Obsessed or Be Average"

    Thanks

    From the book "Be Obsessed or Be Average"
    The author tries to speak at schools and Christian churches (but not other places of worship) as often as possible. (Actually I suspect the author would be happy to speak at any mosque, synagogue, temple, or meeting house that would pay. Failing to notice that "churches" are specific to one broad branch of faiths is typical of the level of attention this author displays.)
