A Letter from the Executive Director
It is truly a privilege and an honor to have been called to serve with Leadership Vistas! As God continues to direct our journey, Holly and I are thrilled to have this opportunity and are overwhelmed with anticipation to see the mighty work He has planned for this ministry in the days ahead.
My personal journey began at a young age. Having been raised in a Christian home, I professed faith in Christ during a revival service. Each night, the guest evangelist shared a children's sermon and drew part of a picture to go with it. By Friday, I could hardly wait for the ending. I don't remember the details, but the final product was a picture of a young girl dressed in full western attire from hat to scarf to boots. The story had been about how Jesus had changed her life. I knew that night I wanted that same change in mine. At the end of the service during the altar call, I went forward and professed my faith in Christ and prayed with the evangelist. Since that time, the Lord has blessed me with a beautiful wife, Holly, and two boys, Drew and Zack. He has also seen fit to lead me along a path of military service, secular work, and, for the past 13 years, vocational ministry in the marketplace, a calling that I was not expecting, yet was significantly clear.
Now, after much prayer, the Lord has again made clear to both Holly and me the call to serve with Leadership Vistas and join you as Leaders for His Kingdom. To carry forth Dr. Jerry Brown's vision for equipping Africa's church leaders with the truth of God's word is humbling and exciting. It is a vision I will guard and protect with utmost care while praying fervently for God's continued favor upon this ministry.
In closing, as the journey continues, I look forward to serving alongside you, His faithful and dedicated servants, and to making a difference in the lives of many in Africa and for our Savior's kingdom.
