Today (June 16, 2018) is the 1 Year Anniversary of the soft launch of Fresh Ministry Consulting’s. A little over a year ago a good friend of mine suggested that I consider taking my ideas, hopes and dreams for Youth Pastors into a digital space. A place where I could reach my goal of…
“HELPING PASTORS, LEADERS AND CHURCHES GET THE TOOLS THEY NEED TO IMPACT STUDENTS WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS”
All of this started out as a solo project and I remember struggling to stay motivated. Not because I was lazy or didn’t want to put in the work. But because I was convinced no one would be interested. Then through a series of timely (divine) conversations I ended up pitching the ideas for Fresh Ministry to three key people who would eventually come on as founding members of this team.
Matthew, Sydney and Michelle loved the idea. They loved it not because of me but because they saw something in our goal. In many ways they are the target audience. A rookie Pastor, Bible College Student and a Volunteer that all love Jesus. These three breathed life into a concept and a year later I cannot believe how much we have accomplished.
This year as a team we…

As I look back I’m blessed, not only for the opportunities God has given me this year through Fresh Ministry. But also for the team of people he has brought into my life. This year Matthew, Sydney and Michelle have each championed, encouraged and supported me through this process and each one of them contributing in their own unique way. Of all the accomplishments of this last year it is this team that I’m the most proud of.
I would also like to thank one last person for all their love and support. For the last 18 years I have called Twyla my wife and “Partner in Crime”. Just over 10 years ago I had the idea for Fresh Ministry but just didn’t know how to make it work at the time. For a decade Twyla has watched me try, stop, fail and try again each time her support never wavered. I’m not sure what I would do without her and God 100% knew what I needed when He brought her into my life.
Finally to the small and faithful crowed that has come to Fresh Ministry Consulting sometime over this last year.
All of this has been done and will continue to be done to help champion you in your ministries, what ever that look like. Fresh Ministry Consulting at its heart is really about me giving back after receiving so much from others (My Story). My hope and prayer is that one day you may choose to do the same because we have chosen to invent in you.
