Created a comprehensive marriage ministry called WINGS (Wounded In Need of God’s Shelter) – www.wingsretreats.com; www.lionstrategy.group (search family matters)
My dream for the beloved communities is to show that strong family ties imply more reliance on the family as an economic unit which provides goods and services and less on the market and on the government for social services. Work with dysfunctional aspects of police agencies by developing a biblically based leadership institute called – “Hope Leadership Institute” for Police leadership and a branch for church families and school systems. The Hope Leadership Institute aims to institutionalize
healthy leadership and wellness principles that all can use to respond to the inevitable challenges of life.
