On March 7, 2013 I renewed my International Rep status at the request of Dr. David Migliore who is the founder and Dean of Students for Global Entrepreneur Institute. Dr. David and I had spent many hours dealing with his temperament needs and how to meet them to bring him through, what he has discovered through God’s revelation, the “Transformation Gap.” Through his own personal quest for victory in his own life, through his desire to learn how to walk in the Spirit, and in his quest to help the many godly men and women who were in leadership positions, be that as fathers, mothers, dentists, teachers, business men or women, community leaders, or ministers, yet who were ‘stuck’ in their own personal lives, put within him an unquenchable desire to be trained in Creation Therapy. That is the prompting that God used to get me to renew my IR status.
At this time I had no idea the doors God was waiting to open up for me to use this amazing tool to touch the world for Jesus. I had no idea that I would be touching lives all over the world, setting captives free as they discover who they are in Christ, how knowing themselves and how God uniquely created them, would help them to know others better, which made them greater communicators, taught them how to handle conflicts, and raised their value in the world by becoming problem solvers,
In 2009 I became a coach in GEI. I was assigned to a student for the institute for one year. We did one principle a week for 40 weeks, they were required to do 4 book reports in that year and one dissertation at the end of the 40 weeks to earn their GEI Personal Mastery Certificate. I have been a coach now for 5 years.
After coaching 23 students, one on one, I have received the Master Coaches Distinction in GEI. The need to train coaches rose up and that is where I am ministering today. God has helped me to develop a Basic Coach Training Manual. In the second lesson within the manual I introduce the coaches in training to the Arno Profile System. Each student takes the APS. Through this introduction the Arno Profile is going viral, so to speak through GEI. I am able to do this all online, and by phone. From my home God is allowing me to be a world changer into various cultures.
Since October of 2013 an interest has broken out with GEI in leaders now enrolling in the course of Creation Therapy. “The Refuge” a ministry in Columbus, Ohio for those fighting addictions, has become ignited with this program to use in their ministry of rehabilitating men from the lifestyle of drug addiction. They have acknowledged that this is what they have been looking for and praying about to close the backdoor for these men which will ultimately increase their success rate in rehabilitating these lives of these precious men. Putting godly men back into their communities and in leadership positions. Five of their leaders are now involved in training and soon will be establishing a class for these men in Created in God’s Image.
In February I will have the honor of taking this material into a local Dentist’s office to train their staff. This will strengthen their team, the homes and personal lives of their staff which will ultimately increase godly productivity, producing fruit, lasting fruit for the Kingdom of God.
Oh, by the way, I am 74 years old. I WAS retired, or so I thought. What was really going on in my short-lived retirement was that I was being re-fired for the best years of my life. What an awesome God we serve.
