Our ministry verse: “We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God’s Good News but our own lives, too.”
(1 Thessalonians 2:8)

Our passion is to be used as God’s vessel to help others live the abundant life that God promises in John 10:10. He has given us the gifts to raise up coaches and disciple-makers who empower others to be transformed by the Holy Spirit in ways that they have never imagined. Life, Leadership, and Discipleship Coaching are powerful ways to join God on mission as He grows disciples who develop generations of disciples where they live, work, and play.

God has called us to teach, train, and develop a team of Life, Leadership, and Discipleship coaches who are impacting the lives of pastors and ministry leaders in churches and missions around the globe. When pastors and ministry leaders embrace the vision of creating a disciple-making culture, disciples can grow in spiritual maturity and go into the world around them joining with Jesus to make disciples who make disciples. Jesus’ last words in Matthew 28:18-19, known as the Great Commission, “to go and make disciples of all nations” is being lived out. In essence, we become disciple-makers for life!

Our heart verse: “Trust the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all ways acknowledge Him, and He will set your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6)

We have a heart within the church and the community to make the invisible Christ visible to all those around them. Today, many churches do not focus on reaching those not-yet-reached or the next generation. As a result, churches and the community of believers around them are either leveling out or declining.  We are passionate about coming alongside church staff, ministry team leaders, and others within the body who desire to have an intentional, relational approach to disciple-making.   Together, we can transform and grow a community of believers who are taking the responsibility to share the Gospel, pass on their faith in Christ, and be a light to those around them. As a husband and wife married for 30 years, we have a heart to help young couples who are engaged or early in their marriage to center their lives around Christ.

We have two beautiful young adult daughters who live and work in Florida – St. Petersburg-Tampa-Clearwater area.
