Encouraging and coaching pastors and leaders

It has been a great first half of 2023. Here is an update video and a few stories from the field. 

2023 Ministry update

The year's first half started with a huge launch by speaking at seven different churches in Costa Rica, including a pastor's conference about leaving a legacy. I then traveled to Mexico City, spoke at three other churches, and held a men's conference. This trip was incredibly fruitful in every way. We saw people dedicate themselves to Jesus, dozens of physical healings, and people overwhelmed by the love of God. Men were sobbing on my shoulder after receiving God's love and acceptance. It was an honor to be a part of what God did.

We spoke in Alabama, which yielded some great fruit, and then we quickly traveled to Utah to minister at a conference in which we saw such a response that we prayed for people for 3.5 hours after the teaching. So many people were touched, healed, and encouraged. The stories I have heard since are amazing.

Among other ministry opportunities, I was off to Bolivia to encourage the body of Jesus there in three different cities. Many healings, people receiving the Spirit's gift, getting saved, encouraged, and released to do the kingdom's ministry themselves. After that and a visit to grandson number 19, I met with some great ministry partners in North Carolina.

I was helpful during the Foursquare convention by picking up keynote speakers from the airport and hosting many of my Latin American friends for dinner. Giving to and encouraging them in their health, families, and ministry is a privilege. It is what I do!

After that, I was consumed with content creation and am about to launch several podcasts. We have a platform that is heard worldwide in which we can equip, strengthen, and encourage people. In the middle of that, I was asked to respond to the Maui fires while on vacation. I had asked God to extend my vacation time months earlier, and He said no. Now I know why. I had one day after returning from the desert with my wife to prepare for a week ministering to the people who lost so much on the island of Maui. It was so sad to hear their stories of loss. I connected with several people who were moved by what transpired between us. I pray that we connect here on the mainland.

We had meetings at our house, coached people, and loved the people God put into our lives. It is a pleasure to do so. While in Maui, one of our ministry partners happened to be on the island for vacation (not affected by the fire). She went to church with us, leaned over to me, and said, " PT, you were made for this work. Although she specifically referred to responding as a chaplain, I know God has prepared me for my whole life to do what I am doing now.

starting line

The Starting Line manual helps you focus your life on the essential things defined by your life’s calling and mission. It does that through captivating dialogue, penetrating questions, and time-tested techniques to arrange your life according to your mission.

I grew up in an average family, was average at sports, was average in school, and pretty much was average in all of life except I had eight kids. One day, it dawned on me that I was not meant for average. God spoke to my heart and told me I would never go beyond my mindset! My average thinking was stopping me from EVERYTHING that I wanted. Life was good, but I always longed for greatness. I just never thought it could be attained…, by me. That day changed my life; now, I focus and apply myself toward greatness in every area of life. I am 62, with 8 kids, 7 wonderful inlaws, and 21 grandkids. I enjoy my relationship with my Creator more than ever. I am still madly in love with my wife of 38 years, in better shape than in my 20's, and excelling in other areas more than ever. I love hanging out with my kids and grandkids, being outdoors, lifting weights, surfing, camping, and biking, growing in knowledge, and applying that knowledge to my life. I absolutely love helping others reach their God-given potential.


Finishing the race isn't the goal,
it is finishing the race well.
