Thank you for visiting my blog. I’m honored that you are here.
Since this website is about finding your purpose, I’ll start with telling you mine. God’s gifted me with a passion for starting things. I’ve started and led four businesses and as many ministries. In each of these settings my primary interest is unlocking the core value of the organization and creating a growth strategy to fit it.
By day, I lead a corporate venturing consulting firm, Lumina Consulting Group, that I founded in 1995. We help mid-market firms innovate by creating healthy intraprenuering environments such as spin-ups, acquisitions, subsidiaries and joint-ventures. It’s all very exciting stuff and I’m honored to be working with some really terrific companies.
Over the past decade, I’ve come to discover that a lot of the principles I’ve applied in the business world to clarify mission, values and strategy also works with individuals. And so, I founded BoldPath Life Strategies, as a non-profit, to help people find their mission, fight their battle and fuel their passion for Christ. I’ve developed a number of workshops through that organization to help Christians develop a more intentional approach to their personal mission development, most notably the Dream Intensive workshop.
I like to think of myself as a Mission Activator, one who helps others distill what they are meant to create. I believe that God, as Creator, made us in His image in order to do what He does—to create. And every created thing, whether a person created in God’s image or an organization conceived in the mind of an entrepreneur, exists for a purpose. Mission activators help others create clarity in their purpose, unleash their gifting, overcome their resistance, and begin living the life God intends for them.
In addition to these endeavors, I serve on a number of corporate and non-profit boards and as the President of the National Coalition of Ministries to Men, an association of over 150 member organizations representing over 200,000 churches in America, all committed to the discipleship of men across the country and around the world.
But the greatest honor I have is as a husband to my wife of 32 years, Anna, and a father to my four adult and teen children, Stephanie, Ryan, Joshua, and Jonathan. They are a constant encouragement and delight.
