Making a Living, While Making a Difference!
Hello! I operate using the axiom, “None of us is as smart as all of us” and have a passion to see people, ministries and businesses fulfill their God-given potential.
I started life on the fast track. Married at 17, a father at 18, and a meteoric rise in my career. I was on target to become the youngest General Manager of a big box retail store in the history of a company that began in 1899. The good life went sour through a series of unfortunate events and bad decisions. Overtaken with the lusts of this world that left a trail of broken lives, a broken marriage, and a shattered career. I reached bottom and suicide seemed the only option. A devastating car accident totaled my car and sent me to the emergency room. After being stitched back together I left the hospital. My whole life was in ruins. I knew I needed help but didn't know where to turn. One person came to mind, Henry Riek, a pastor and uncle by marriage. I phoned him. He got out of bed and drove to meet me where I was staying. He simply shared the gospel with me in the early morning hours that Sunday. And there at my bottom...I met Jesus! A new life began! After almost three years of discipleship, study and getting to know the Lord I met Debbie and we were married. I embarked on a new life plan both personally and professionally.
