Follow Jesus.
Lead Different.

Great leadership begins with humility. It starts with following. Jesus invites us to follow him and when we do, it changes us. We want to help you discover what that looks like and apply it to every area of your life.

Having worked with…

You’re busy. I know you are. But if you want to thrive at work, at home, and in life, then we need to talk about Jesus.

Have you ever wondered why so many people claim to be Christians, but their lives appear no different than their non-believing friends? It’s because following Jesus doesn’t simply produce moral or religious people. It transforms us from the inside out.

We’d love to help you follow Jesus in such a way that it changes the way you live and the way you lead – both at work and at home.

Our Approach


We look at the Scriptures, the life of Jesus, and the example of other believers to glean every last bit of wisdom we can and apply it to our lives. It’s so much easier than doing life alone.


We teach about leading people, non-profits or businesses in a different way. A way that reflects the Kingdom. It’s not as easy as you might think, but we can help.


We talk about our opportunity for greatest impact – our own families. We give practical advice to help your marriage hum and your kids thrive, including kids we care for through fostering, adoption or mentoring.


Kevin invites you on a journey of learning alongside him as he interviews pastors, leaders, authors and practitioners in a wide-variety of fields. Kevin also shares from his experience as an organizational leader, a foster & adoptive parent, and as a mentor. The topics are wide-ranging and include how following Jesus impacts them all – both at work and at home. Join us!

What Life-Changing Mentors Do Consistently

Here's a riddle: What is something everyone wants, but very few consider themselves to be? That's right; a mentor. I've talked to many people over the years - young and old - who each wished they had a mentor in their life. Young people that want someone to walk with them; college students that want the wisdom that someone older offers; young marrieds that want another couple to share with them the lessons they've learned; young families that want to learn parenting skills by watching how another family does it. read more
