I am the grandson of a Pastor and Entrepreneur. I grew up in a family running a church and several businesses in Gary, Indiana. I learned early how to handle money and later to rightly divide the Word of God.
I studied, business, finances, strategy, and economics in universities and worked as an economist in fortune 100 corporations and civic organizations before adventuring off to experience a series of entrepreneurial endeavors. I enjoyed some wins and had lots of learning days.
After years of running from the mantle of ministry passed on from my grandfather, I found my purpose at the intersections of faith and finances, economics and entrepreneurship, Bibles, and briefcases. After serving as an administrative pastor and advisor in two church plants I discovered my true calling as a minister in the marketplace. I now work directly for a Jewish carpenter. He sends me on assignments. Even now, I work for Him disguised and Professor of Economics and Entrepreneurial Coach and Trainer.
I believe we are all called to create, be fruitful, and productive. Moreover, Jesus is the best role model to follow. He was the first and greatest ever business start-up founder. He started an enterprise that has grown steadily for over 2000 years. When we follow his model, we too can create successful businesses that are led as he led, and afford the abundant life for the founders, their families, and communities.
