Founder's Letter

      Dear Fellow Workers in our Lord's Harvest Fields,

     Martin Luther says in his famous Galatians commentary: “When Satan cannot suppress the preaching of the Gospel by force he tries to accomplish his purpose by striking the ministers [Christian churches, schools and universities] of the Gospel with poverty. He curtails their income to such an extent that they are forced out of the ministry because they cannot live by the Gospel” (Chapter 6, pp. 237-251, 1535). 

 

Over the last 23 years serving in specialized ministry settings to churches and schools in transition (family to corporate-sized), my family and I have often lived “between” calls and in part-time calls.  As God always does, He has used these circumstances for our good and to prepare us for His service to the greater church in ways we never dreamed possible.  In 1999, God enabled me to become a financial advisor at UBS PaineWebber, and enabled me to use this expert training and financial knowledge to bless local ministries in their efforts to promote the Gospel.  I have pastored ten congregations and assisted each to revision their ministry through a renewal, revitalization, or redevelopment approach.  I am blessed to advise community foundations, hospitals, corporations, churches, and individuals.  It is my passion to help churchworkers, churches and schools in ministry transitions.
