Having been married for over 24 years, we have experienced the ups and downs of everyday life. For so many years we didn’t have vision for our lives or marriage. We knew “about God” but didn’t really know Him in an intimate, life-changing way. Although we were saved and going to heaven, we still thought and lived the same as the world. We went to church and served in many areas, but no matter our efforts we were “stuck”, having brought the baggage of our past into our marriage. The results led to our marital separation in 2005. It was during this time however, that we came to the end of ourselves and turned to know God in a deeper way. We began to discover the power of God’s love and mercy, and allow Him to heal our broken hearts. As we turned our hearts toward the Lord, He miraculously turned our hearts toward each other, and we reconciled after five months.
It was through this process of reconciliation and healing that we changed our view of God and ourselves…a view that now lined up with God’s Word and not the world’s. Through this process we were set free of a system of toxic thinking patterns and harmful emotions and strongholds. We gained a revelation of God’s unconditional love, mercy and grace, and made the decision to fully trust Him and seek all that He had for our lives.
As our trust in God grew, He put in both of our hearts the desire to move to Colorado Springs, CO to attend Andrew Wommack’s Charis Bible College. For Fred, this meant a necessary exit of his career as a business executive to immerse himself in the Word. We chose to walk by faith and spent two years studying the Word of God, renewing our minds in order to prove out the good, acceptable and perfect will of God for our lives. After receiving our Masters in Biblical Studies, God called us back to the Grand Rapids, Michigan area to begin our discipleship and teaching ministry.
We now teach and speak the revelation God has entrusted to us in churches and conferences, lead Bible studies, and offer discipleship and mentoring classes. We have a passion to see others prosper in every area of their lives and accomplish all the things God has placed into their hearts—to fulfill the plans, purposes and dreams He’s ordained.
Fred has a heart for Business Professionals, marriages and men’s ministry. He is called to teach and disciple them in how to realize their godly vision and purpose in order to reach their full potential as leaders–leaders that actively demonstrate the power of God in every area of their lives. Fred’s desire is for people in the business world to use their God-given talents, skills and abilities to advance the Kingdom of God in a positive and effective way.
