The High Ground

Our ministry focus for the last 45 years has been equipping the next generation of leaders. Together Laurie and I stayed committed to the process of multiplying discipleship, where as Paul writes in 2 Timothy 2:2, “the things you’ve heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men and women who be able to teach others.” 


In the past, one of our primary venues for leadership development and multiplication has been our conferences at Gettysburg - see The High Ground at Gettysburg. For over 20 years, we’ve had over 2,000 leaders go through the training. Taking place on a historical battlefield, these conferences have enabled us to create an experiential learning venue to prepare leaders for the spiritual battle. In doing so, we’ve found ways to equip leaders in both gospel courageous and gospel corrective ways. We are currently capturing much of the conference on video for online learning.


Over these years, we have also developed an experiential model of leadership development and storytelling that we believe can be adapted to other historic venues — such as Valley Forge, The 54th Mass at the Battle of Fort Wagner near Charleston, SC, Normandy to the Battle of the Bulge, and even to the struggle for Civil Rights from Memphis to Atlanta. In the years of ministry remaining, we’d love to help equip “history’s storytellers for King and Kingdom.” Already, over 250 leaders find our current monthly Life and Leadership Letter helpful to their journey. 


We believe being members with Global Service will enable us to focus, and even broaden, our commitment to leadership development. We have recently attached a meeting space for small leadership teams at our home in Lake George, Colorado. Leadership teams from various non-profits have already used it and we plan to continue to use our time encouraging men and women from all walks of life to be faithful to what God is teaching them and then to teach them to others.
