What's your role at G7?
As the bridge between G7’s executive & technical functions, I am basically still playing out my old high school self: the cool kid among the nerds + the nerd among the cool kids.
In professional-speak, I direct the development and roll-out of G7's training, marketing, and technological resources across the Network. I ensure all guests and members are guided through their G7 journey and get the most out of the program.
Why are passionate about G7?
The devil in the details, but so is God if you know how to look. G7's essential business model mixes revenue generation with spiritual development. This combination of faith + money can become a deadly cocktail or a life-giving solution, depending on whether our efforts in both are submitted to God. It's my passion & prayer that G7 do what it does best—business growth through referral relationships—in the full joy of obedience to God's commands.
What's your background?
My professional career has spanned non-profits & for-profits alike, with common threads of business operations & educational communication. As a Certified Scrum Master & owner of Fortis Agilis, my contract project management firm, I make it easier for product owners to take control of their workflow with courage, creativity, & confidence.
What do you like doing when you're not working?
My wife Lena and I teach the youth group at our congregation of Life21 Church, an evangelical, charismatic ministry in Northfield, MN, USA.
What's your favorite book of the bible, and why?
Over the last year, I've been teaching on prophet Amos. The book of Amos frequently uses sarcasm and complex imagery to make this simple point, that when the "family of God" pursues their own security, pleasure, and even their religion to the detriment of the poor, God's destructive judgment is certain & thorough. A biblical mentor once told me that to understand such a harsh message you have to be skilled in making fun of others, especially yourself.
