Eric Bents is a leader developer and strategy coach dedicated to helping people and organizations overcome their biggest problems. In his role as Executive Director of The Storehouse Movement, Eric leverages his hard-won insights into wartime strategy and operations to provide a framework for anyone to tackle their most challenging life, business, or community challenges.  Eric served 30 years in the United State Air Force (20 years active, 10 reserve), retiring as a colonel after serving in a wide variety of combat and non-combat roles, with deployments to Afghanistan and Bosnia.  His duty responsibilities spanned nearly all military mission areas to include nuclear, cyberspace, space, peacekeeping, counterinsurgency, counterterrorism, and conventional combat support. Eric also served 10 years in fulltime ministry as a regional outreach pastor in Omaha NE, highlighted by the establishment of a citywide “roundtable” which to date remains the largest collaboration between faith leaders, businesses, non-profits, and government organizations in that city’s history.  Most importantly, Eric loves to spend time with his family – wife Marnie, five grown children and four grandchildren – and is an avid hunter and outdoorsman.

What do you consider a significant career accomplishment?  Range – succeeding at more than one thing. I am so thankful to have served in multiple careers – military leader, pastor and leader developer.

What’s an important lesson you’ve learned over your career? Embrace the grind. There are certain things that can only be learned through hardship and difficulty.

What’s an important spiritual principle you’ve learned?  I’ve learned to stay hungry, be humble and lean completely on Jesus.

What would you say to a young person starting out in life/career?  I told my children to prepare thoroughly, work hard, stay positive and move quickly when opportunities present.  Do this and you’ll “attract” success.

 

My primary ministry is marriage mentoring. Developing strong Christ-centered marriages is the ministry my wife and I have enjoyed for 18 years as certified marriage mentors (we’ve been married for 31 years). I’ve been a believer for 43 years and we have five adult kids. I own two small businesses, one of which is ministry focused.

I help people take the next step in their life, faith, and leadership. My goal is to empower people to hear God speak and do whatever he says. For over 20 years as a pastor, I attempted to do this as a “sage from the stage”, but now I work in the marketplace so that I can serve as a “guide alongside”. This allows me to model what it looks like to make disciples in the everyday stuff of life. I married Jacqueline way back in 1996 and we have raised 3 adult sons and look forward to welcoming our first daughter-in-law in March. 

Professionally, what are you core competencies (greatest strengths):
I start new things.
I develop leaders.
I build teams.
I challenge people and processes.

What do you consider a significant career accomplishment?
In 2007, my family said yes to God and moved halfway across the country to Omaha, Nebraska to start a church. We didn’t know a single person. There was minimal support and very little funding. Despite all the reasons it should have failed, God slowly built His church and Redeemer is still meeting today. 

What’s an important lesson you’ve learned over your career?
I have far more influence when I help people discover the truth than when I tell them what to think or do. The best way to facilitate discovery is to ask questions, so stay curious. 

What’s an important spiritual principle you’ve learned?
God loves me. 
God has good plans for my life. 
God can make them happen. 
God never fails. 
(I guess that’s four … but you can bundle them into one.)

What would you say to a young person starting out in life/career?
It’s all about relationships. It’s not about you. You need others and they need you. 

A bullet about your family…
I married Jacqueline, an East Tennessee girl, 27 years ago. We have three sons: Jackson is an architectural engineer. Andrew works in app development.
Leighton is a college student. 

Anything else of note you’d like guys to know?
I run, golf, and fish for fun (not at the same time). I love dogs and the sound of Rocky Top on a Fall Saturday.

 

Chris Craft is a respected international consultant specializing in equipping individuals for personal and professional development. Through years of experience, he has developed not only a keen understanding of the needs and issues most people confront but has also gained insights into addressing the most common mistakes that are made in their pursuit of success. His consulting company, BloodFlow, is a metaphor for the passion that drives him – a desire to bring growth, development, and healthy change into the lives of individuals and businesses to increase “blood flow” and sustain life.

Professionally, what are your core competencies? Simplifying the complex, bringing clarity where there is lack of vision, interpersonal communication, public speaking, teaching, coaching.

What do you consider a significant career accomplishment? Breaking away from my corporate America career and beginning my own company at 40 years old, beginning with no capital and taking no loans. In less than 18 months, I was bringing in enough money to replace my wife’s job so she could come home and live life based on her priorities instead of her obligations.

What’s an important lesson you’ve learned over your career? There are many… I’ll go with this: Never allow your past hurts, pains, and experiences to hold you back from serving the next person. Hurt people will hurt people; don’t become jaded towards people because you are called to serve them.

What’s an important spiritual lesson you’ve learned? Again, many… here’s one of the biggest: My circumstances do not define my God. Although God is sovereign, He never promised us an easy, comfortable life – actually, He guaranteed the opposite. When my expectations of God are out of scope with what He promised, He isn’t out of line – I am.

What would you say to a young person starting out in life/career? Keep learning. Traditional education tends to beat a love of learning out of us, but the only way to grow is to learn. Read books on marriage, books on parenting, books on sales and professional skills, listen to podcasts on personal development and spiritual growth, attend seminars and conferences where you can take away nuggets of truth. Then don’t be afraid of failure; the only path to success must go through a succession of what you will consider non-successes. But ultimately, everything you consider a “failure” is simply another step towards success.

A bullet about your family: My wife, Laura, is my very best friend in the world. We have been married 18 years; while God hasn’t decided to give us children of our own yet, we have 13 years of experience as volunteer youth pastors, so we have hundreds of kids. My mother, Marlene Craft, is a missionary to Widows and began a program called Widow’s Link, to connect Widows to God and to each other. My siblings and I all serve in the same church, and I am very grateful for that.

Identity isn’t all about experiences and descriptions. My bio doesn’t really have a single peg to grasp. If you read my books, you know that I am a storyteller. On other days, I am a driven athlete and coach for men and women seeking to make the National Team in Duathlon and Triathlon. For a few months each year, I am a high-adventure travel guide, leading people on rafting and fishing trips in Alaska, trekking in Nepal, cycling in Spain, and cycling the entire Blue Ridge Parkway. Some mornings, I am sharing in AA meetings. Regardless of which identity I currently hold, I always seem to find ideas and people to be what drives me. 

Sure, I am a retired CEO and don’t have to work for a living, but I should be dead.  I had a horrific bike wreck that put me in a hospital for four days. Both attending physicians said I am lucky to be alive. I woke up and discovered that my passion is writing. I always told myself I would get around to it one day. The “round to it” was upon me, and I found my voice.

I love characters who don’t believe what people tell them unless they can prove it to themselves. Braiding that together is a lot of fun and almost too close to truthful to not be.

My wife, Linda, and I live in rural North Carolina. Our children are grown and gone. You can follow my other writings or sign up to do one of my tours at

My books are available on all the major outlets.  And I love connecting young men to who they were meant to be.

Professionally, what are your core competencies (greatest strengths):
o Leadership development
o Cultural and Emotional Intelligence
o Consistency
o Discerning
o Biblically prophetic – meaning an ability to cut to the chase and understand biblical
principles for guiding others.

What do you consider a significant career accomplishment?
I became the pastor of a 4-year-old church, and I was the fifth pastor. I successfully
got the church out of debt, restored relationships, built an elder team and built a
stable, growing church after remaining for 15 years.

What’s an important lesson you’ve learned over your career?
I have learned to keep my focus on the Lord and His will and to trust Him above all
others. People will let you down, but when your focus is on the Lord, then you can
restore fallen people, build struggling people and walk away from unchanging
people.

What’s an important spiritual principle you’ve learned?
Robertson McQuilkin used to say, “It is easier to go to a consistent extreme than to
stay at the center of biblical tension.” That lesson has kept me focused on knowing
the Lord and His word, and has kept me from getting distracted by petty issues in
ministry.

What would you say to a young person starting out in life/career?
I would try to teach them the importance of keeping the focus on the Lord and His
heart. This will guide them in at least 3 areas:
Keeping work and their career in the right priority
Avoiding the pressure to “have it all” early and to getting into debt.
Making sure they see the development of others as more important than just
their “success.”

My family:
I have been married to Judy for 36.5 years. We have four grown children and three
grandchildren.

One last thing: I believe God has uniquely gifted and called me to invest in the next generation.
Four years ago, in Turkey, I was challenged that the next generation needs spiritual fathers
(1 Cor. 4:15,16), and I prayerfully made it my goal to be a spiritual father to the next generation
of leaders.

Having spent a total of 37 years in tough, strenuous, violent environments such as the world’s largest walled prison, a facility nicknamed “O-Stab-Away,” and over 16 other correctional institutions, I learned resilience and perseverance even when facing daunting situations and circumstances.

Through my journey, I transformed from having the mindset of a vicTIM into that of a vicTOR by reshaping the way I think, feel, speak, and act.

My experiences have taught me invaluable lessons about the importance of exhibiting a confident attitude, determination, and embracing challenges as opportunities for achieving success.

For nearly 50 years I have been committed to inspiring and empowering people worldwide to overcome obstacles and become the best versions of themselves.

I strive to be a positive role model, letting my story be a testament to the fact that no matter WHAT you’ve THOUGHT, WHAT you’ve FELT, WHAT you’ve SAID, WHAT you’ve DONE, WHO you WERE, WHO you ARE, WHERE you’re FROM, or WHERE you’re AT, you have the RIGHT, the POWER, and the ABILITY to rise above it ALL……and SUCCEED.

Graduated from an electronic technical school.
Married my beautiful wife at the age of 21.

6. My immediate family is Bernadette my wife of 49 years. We have 2 married children
John J my son who I’ve worked with for the past sixteen years
Christy, my daughter who has a 3-year-old son.

I’m a retired United States Air Force veteran (21 years). I grew up in a Christian home
where my father was a Baptist Pastor. I have 8 brothers and sisters. I also have five
children, one of whom has since gone to heaven; A son who is a Next Gen Pastor of a church in GA.,
A son who has finished his degree and is employed in the HVAC industry, A daughter who is a writer,
A daughter who is in nursing school. I also have two wonderful grandchildren that I adore.

I joined the Air Force when I was 18 years old. During my tenure in the military, I
realized that God was cultivating my spiritual gifts to touch others’ lives. He was
developing my ability to relate to people. Even though I endured tough seasons like going through two divorces and losing my mother and father while on active duty – God empowered me to remain humble and compassionate toward others. This was something that I picked up from the earlier years of watching my father pastor his church.

My passion to encourage people and help grow their confidence connected me back to my Savior. I knew God had given me a special gift of encouragement, and I couldn’t stop myself from helping people live better lives.

Professional core competencies – greatest strengths
Perseverance – I never give up. God gifted me the ability to view any situation through a lens of optimism and belief. I mentor people experiencing doubt, anxiety, or confusion about their direction in life. And God helps me empower them to transform their perspective. The greater the task, the greater the feat. This has been God’s way of using people you think do not have the ability to go through with His assigned mission or purpose. But you see throughout scripture God chose people like Moses and Paul to carry out the greatest feats in the Bible. I feel this way about the people I mentor. God has chosen me to help others overcome some battles and I will not give up on an assigned task.

Significant career accomplishments
After serving in the military for 21 years and owning a technology business, I’ve learned that a significant career accomplishment is when you discover the purpose that God has created you for – no matter how minor or monumental the achievement. Anything else is God gifting you immeasurably more than you could have hoped for.

Important career lessons
Don’t forget to stop and celebrate. To make a ritual of remembrance and reflect on the accomplishments you overcame through adversity. Sometimes you will need to go back there to remember those moments to give you strength to get through other trials you may face in your career. Two things you may remember is:
• God strengthens you: You got through it and the anxiety you felt was not worth it
• You’re not alone: Someone was there to help you make it through; spouse, family member, close friend, etc….

Important spiritual principles
Always seek God first. Fulfilling the purpose of God in your life will give you peace of mind when dealing with the pressures that come in life. Prioritize God’s grace and love for you through prayer and worship.

Entrepreneur, Attorney, and Government Affairs Professional. Joseph Robert Murray, “Joe,” is a Christian, husband, and father to three young children, ages 16 (Ella), nine (Abraham Joseph), and six (Magnolia Jo Ann). Through prayerful intentionality and focus, he felt God’s calling and life purpose manifested in the early 2000’s to influence hearts and minds for the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and uphold Judeo-Christian principles in government. Vocationally, Joe has operated professionally in elective campaigns for federal and state elective governmental offices and invested seven years as a federal employee in the United States House of Representatives and United States Senate. Additionally, Joe runs a private practice law firm, a strategic communications and government affairs lobbying firm, as well as a real estate development and investment firm that rehabilitates depressed homes for resale or lease. 

Professionally, what are you core competencies (greatest strengths):

Diligence, perseverance, risk-taking, coalition building, friendship building, critical thinking, writing, and concise and effective oral communication skills.  

What do you consider a significant career accomplishment?

Crafting federal legislation to modernize and streamline a major federal entitlement program during my time as a professional policy staffer in the United States House of Representatives. 

What’s an important lesson you’ve learned over your career?

People ultimately do what they really want to do. Most career people are busy, yet all will prioritize what they want to get done despite the barriers or challenges.   

What’s an important spiritual principle you’ve learned?

In any and all career decisions, asking Jesus how He wants you to handle a matter, no matter how miniscule or significant, has led me to make the best and most discerning decisions.  

What would you say to a young person starting out in life/career?

Take sincere stock and pay attention to other trusted stakeholders in your life when discussing how they see your strengths. Secondly, be highly mindful and deliberative on the career opportunities that come your way. They often are the career path the Lord is guiding you to take. 

A bullet about your family…

My family is God’s gift to me.  Katie, my wife of 18 years, is the bedrock of love and care for myself, our three precious children, our two dogs, and the caretaking our sanctuary and home in Centreville, Virginia. 

I’m retired from a TV production career started in 1966 after college and a stint in the US Army.

My greatest strengths are to be able to work with most anybody in a service/servant role. I’m also an intercessor and my wife and I are on the prayer team that is available to pray with people after each worship service and in our personal prayer time.

I guess my most significant accomplishments in that field would be filming and editing several films, one of which was a runner up in the national Emmy Awards competition for community documentaries. I’ve learned that I can get along with most anybody if I’m not concerned with my always being right or receiving credit. Spiritually I find those same lessons apply when doing things the Lord brings to me for my involvement, not usually in leadership. Just knowing I’ve been a part of something that must be pleasing to the Lord is very satisfying. All done in love.

I’m married to a wonderful, spirit filled woman whom I met then married three years after my first wife died of breast cancer in the 1990’s. I have a son who is 55 and two stepsons in their 50’s with whom I have very good relationships.

My primary Biblical learning (from a human source) was from Dr Chuck Missler, founder of Koinonia House and Koinonia Institute. Many of his teachings are available on YouTube.

Marcus Salette
My cores strengths are critical thinking and problem solving, organizational and personal development, trauma-transitional coaching and thought leadership on futurism. I celebrate others because I see them forward.

My central career lesson is the power of team building and community collaboration. I’ve also learned to remain flexible in a changing labor market and be willing to adapt in the midst of continued technological advances.

My favorite principle is that there is always a cause to celebrate the growth of God’s DNA in human beings beyond behavioral expectations. “For God so loved the world that he gave…” John 3:16. Our love of others must be evident despite our personal preferences.

My most significant accomplishments are my investments in others growth. Over four decades of helping students, young adults, couples and organizations embrace life’s challenges and experience life’s victories despite the trauma in their families.

My advice in life is to be grateful for the present moment however victorious or disastrous because life will always change both for the worse and for the better. I am grateful for being a father and for the past experience of 35 years in married life.

Additional information:
My favorite book is The Bible and I have taught it for over 45 years and here’s the reason why.

“I choose to believe the Bible because, it is a reliable collection of historical documents written down by eyewitnesses during the lifetime of other eyewitnesses. They reported supernatural events that took place in fulfillment of specific prophesies and claimed their writings are divine rather human in origin.”
Paraphrase of 2 Peter 1: 16-21

Eric also served 10 years in fulltime ministry as a regional outreach pastor in Omaha NE, highlighted by the establishment of a citywide “roundtable” which to date remains the largest collaboration between faith leaders, businesses, non-profits, and government organizations in that city’s history.  Most importantly, Eric loves to spend time with his family – wife Marnie, five grown children and four grandchildren – and is an avid hunter and outdoorsman.

What do you consider a significant career accomplishment?  Range – succeeding at more than one thing. I am so thankful to have served in multiple careers – military leader, pastor and leader developer.

What’s an important lesson you’ve learned over your career? Embrace the grind. There are certain things that can only be learned through hardship and difficulty.

What’s an important spiritual principle you’ve learned?  I’ve learned to stay hungry, be humble and lean completely on Jesus.

What would you say to a young person starting out in life/career?  I told my children to prepare thoroughly, work hard, stay positive and move quickly when opportunities present.  Do this and you’ll “attract” success.

My primary ministry is marriage mentoring. Developing strong Christ-centered marriages is the ministry my wife and I have enjoyed for 18 years as certified marriage mentors (we’ve been married for 31 years). I’ve been a believer for 43 years and we have five adult kids. I own two small businesses, one of which is ministry focused.

Michael Connaughton’s childhood dream of playing college basketball was
realized when he landed a scholarship to play forward at Cleveland State University. After college, Michael became an actor, playing various TV roles as a member of the Screen Actors’ Guild for over 20 years. Micheal also spent a career in media sales in the industrial sector. Michael found Christ in 1997. He and his wife Suzy have a blended family and have been married for 17 years. Having experienced success and set-backs in his life, Michael is well positive
to mentor younger men looking for guidance, direction and answers.

I help people take the next step in their life, faith, and leadership. My goal is to empower people to hear God speak and do whatever he says. For over 20 years as a pastor, I attempted to do this as a “sage from the stage”, but now I work in the marketplace so that I can serve as a “guide alongside”. This allows me to model what it looks like to make disciples in the everyday stuff of life. I married Jacqueline way back in 1996 and we have raised 3 adult sons and look forward to welcoming our first daughter-in-law in March. 

Professionally, what are you core competencies (greatest strengths):
I start new things.
I develop leaders.
I build teams.
I challenge people and processes.

What do you consider a significant career accomplishment?
In 2007, my family said yes to God and moved halfway across the country to Omaha, Nebraska to start a church. We didn’t know a single person. There was minimal support and very little funding. Despite all the reasons it should have failed, God slowly built His church and Redeemer is still meeting today. 

What’s an important lesson you’ve learned over your career?
I have far more influence when I help people discover the truth than when I tell them what to think or do. The best way to facilitate discovery is to ask questions, so stay curious. 

What’s an important spiritual principle you’ve learned?
God loves me. 
God has good plans for my life. 
God can make them happen. 
God never fails. 
(I guess that’s four … but you can bundle them into one.)

What would you say to a young person starting out in life/career?
It’s all about relationships. It’s not about you. You need others and they need you. 

A bullet about your family…
I married Jacqueline, an East Tennessee girl, 27 years ago. We have three sons: Jackson is an architectural engineer. Andrew works in app development.
Leighton is a college student. 

Anything else of note you’d like guys to know?
I run, golf, and fish for fun (not at the same time). I love dogs and the sound of Rocky Top on a Fall Saturday.

’ll “attract” success.

Chris Craft is a respected international consultant specializing in equipping individuals for personal and professional development. Through years of experience, he has developed not only a keen understanding of the needs and issues most people confront but has also gained insights into addressing the most common mistakes that are made in their pursuit of success. His consulting company, BloodFlow, is a metaphor for the passion that drives him – a desire to bring growth, development, and healthy change into the lives of individuals and businesses to increase “blood flow” and sustain life.

Professionally, what are your core competencies? Simplifying the complex, bringing clarity where there is lack of vision, interpersonal communication, public speaking, teaching, coaching.

What do you consider a significant career accomplishment? Breaking away from my corporate America career and beginning my own company at 40 years old, beginning with no capital and taking no loans. In less than 18 months, I was bringing in enough money to replace my wife’s job so she could come home and live life based on her priorities instead of her obligations.

What’s an important lesson you’ve learned over your career? There are many… I’ll go with this: Never allow your past hurts, pains, and experiences to hold you back from serving the next person. Hurt people will hurt people; don’t become jaded towards people because you are called to serve them.

What’s an important spiritual lesson you’ve learned? Again, many… here’s one of the biggest: My circumstances do not define my God. Although God is sovereign, He never promised us an easy, comfortable life – actually, He guaranteed the opposite. When my expectations of God are out of scope with what He promised, He isn’t out of line – I am.

What would you say to a young person starting out in life/career? Keep learning. Traditional education tends to beat a love of learning out of us, but the only way to grow is to learn. Read books on marriage, books on parenting, books on sales and professional skills, listen to podcasts on personal development and spiritual growth, attend seminars and conferences where you can take away nuggets of truth. Then don’t be afraid of failure; the only path to success must go through a succession of what you will consider non-successes. But ultimately, everything you consider a “failure” is simply another step towards success.

A bullet about your family: My wife, Laura, is my very best friend in the world. We have been married 18 years; while God hasn’t decided to give us children of our own yet, we have 13 years of experience as volunteer youth pastors, so we have hundreds of kids. My mother, Marlene Craft, is a missionary to Widows and began a program called Widow’s Link, to connect Widows to God and to each other. My siblings and I all serve in the same church, and I am very grateful for that.

Identity isn’t all about experiences and descriptions. My bio doesn’t really have a single peg to grasp. If you read my books, you know that I am a storyteller. On other days, I am a driven athlete and coach for men and women seeking to make the National Team in Duathlon and Triathlon. For a few months each year, I am a high-adventure travel guide, leading people on rafting and fishing trips in Alaska, trekking in Nepal, cycling in Spain, and cycling the entire Blue Ridge Parkway. Some mornings, I am sharing in AA meetings. Regardless of which identity I currently hold, I always seem to find ideas and people to be what drives me. 

Sure, I am a retired CEO and don’t have to work for a living, but I should be dead.  I had a horrific bike wreck that put me in a hospital for four days. Both attending physicians said I am lucky to be alive. I woke up and discovered that my passion is writing. I always told myself I would get around to it one day. The “round to it” was upon me, and I found my voice.

I love characters who don’t believe what people tell them unless they can prove it to themselves. Braiding that together is a lot of fun and almost too close to truthful to not be.

My wife, Linda, and I live in rural North Carolina. Our children are grown and gone. You can follow my other writings or sign up to do one of my tours at

My books are available on all the major outlets.  And I love connecting young men to who they were meant to be.

Professionally, what are your core competencies (greatest strengths):
o Leadership development
o Cultural and Emotional Intelligence
o Consistency
o Discerning
o Biblically prophetic – meaning an ability to cut to the chase and understand biblical
principles for guiding others.

What do you consider a significant career accomplishment?
I became the pastor of a 4-year-old church, and I was the fifth pastor. I successfully
got the church out of debt, restored relationships, built an elder team and built a
stable, growing church after remaining for 15 years.

What’s an important lesson you’ve learned over your career?
I have learned to keep my focus on the Lord and His will and to trust Him above all
others. People will let you down, but when your focus is on the Lord, then you can
restore fallen people, build struggling people and walk away from unchanging
people.

What’s an important spiritual principle you’ve learned?
Robertson McQuilkin used to say, “It is easier to go to a consistent extreme than to
stay at the center of biblical tension.” That lesson has kept me focused on knowing
the Lord and His word, and has kept me from getting distracted by petty issues in
ministry.

What would you say to a young person starting out in life/career?
I would try to teach them the importance of keeping the focus on the Lord and His
heart. This will guide them in at least 3 areas:
Keeping work and their career in the right priority
Avoiding the pressure to “have it all” early and to getting into debt.
Making sure they see the development of others as more important than just
their “success.”

My family:
I have been married to Judy for 36.5 years. We have four grown children and three
grandchildren.

One last thing: I believe God has uniquely gifted and called me to invest in the next generation.
Four years ago, in Turkey, I was challenged that the next generation needs spiritual fathers
(1 Cor. 4:15,16), and I prayerfully made it my goal to be a spiritual father to the next generation
of leaders.

Having spent a total of 37 years in tough, strenuous, violent environments such as the world’s largest walled prison, a facility nicknamed “O-Stab-Away,” and over 16 other correctional institutions, I learned resilience and perseverance even when facing daunting situations and circumstances.

Through my journey, I transformed from having the mindset of a vicTIM into that of a vicTOR by reshaping the way I think, feel, speak, and act.

My experiences have taught me invaluable lessons about the importance of exhibiting a confident attitude, determination, and embracing challenges as opportunities for achieving success.

For nearly 50 years I have been committed to inspiring and empowering people worldwide to overcome obstacles and become the best versions of themselves.

I strive to be a positive role model, letting my story be a testament to the fact that no matter WHAT you’ve THOUGHT, WHAT you’ve FELT, WHAT you’ve SAID, WHAT you’ve DONE, WHO you WERE, WHO you ARE, WHERE you’re FROM, or WHERE you’re AT, you have the RIGHT, the POWER, and the ABILITY to rise above it ALL……and SUCCEED.

1. Greatest Strength

Teachable

5. What advice would you give to someone just starting out?

6. My immediate family is Bernadette my wife of 49 years. We have 2 married children
John J my son who I’ve worked with for the past sixteen years
Christy, my daughter who has a 3-year-old son.

I’m a retired United States Air Force veteran (21 years). I grew up in a Christian home where my father was a Baptist Pastor. I have 8 brothers and sisters. I also have five
children, one of whom has since gone to heaven; A son who is a Next Gen Pastor of a church in GA.,
A son who has finished his degree and is employed in the HVAC industry, A daughter who is a writer,
A daughter who is in nursing school. I also have two wonderful grandchildren that I adore.

I joined the Air Force when I was 18 years old. During my tenure in the military, I
realized that God was cultivating my spiritual gifts to touch others’ lives. He was
developing my ability to relate to people. Even though I endured tough seasons like going through two divorces and losing my mother and father while on active duty – God empowered me to remain humble and compassionate toward others. This was something that I picked up from the earlier years of watching my father pastor his church.

My passion to encourage people and help grow their confidence connected me back to my Savior. I knew God had given me a special gift of encouragement, and I couldn’t stop myself from helping people live better lives.

Professional core competencies – greatest strengths
Perseverance – I never give up. God gifted me the ability to view any situation through a lens of optimism and belief. I mentor people experiencing doubt, anxiety, or confusion about their direction in life. And God helps me empower them to transform their perspective. The greater the task, the greater the feat. This has been God’s way of using people you think do not have the ability to go through with His assigned mission or purpose. But you see throughout scripture God chose people like Moses and Paul to carry out the greatest feats in the Bible. I feel this way about the people I mentor. God has chosen me to help others overcome some battles and I will not give up on an assigned task.

Significant career accomplishments
After serving in the military for 21 years and owning a technology business, I’ve learned that a significant career accomplishment is when you discover the purpose that God has created you for – no matter how minor or monumental the achievement. Anything else is God gifting you immeasurably more than you could have hoped for.

Important career lessons
Don’t forget to stop and celebrate. To make a ritual of remembrance and reflect on the accomplishments you overcame through adversity. Sometimes you will need to go back there to remember those moments to give you strength to get through other trials you may face in your career. Two things you may remember is:
• God strengthens you: You got through it and the anxiety you felt was not worth it
• You’re not alone: Someone was there to help you make it through; spouse, family member, close friend, etc….

Important spiritual principles
Always seek God first. Fulfilling the purpose of God in your life will give you peace of mind when dealing with the pressures that come in life. Prioritize God’s grace and love for you through prayer and worship.

Entrepreneur, Attorney, and Government Affairs Professional. Joseph Robert Murray, “Joe,” is a Christian, husband, and father to three young children, ages 16 (Ella), nine (Abraham Joseph), and six (Magnolia Jo Ann). Through prayerful intentionality and focus, he felt God’s calling and life purpose manifested in the early 2000’s to influence hearts and minds for the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and uphold Judeo-Christian principles in government. Vocationally, Joe has operated professionally in elective campaigns for federal and state elective governmental offices and invested seven years as a federal employee in the United States House of Representatives and United States Senate. Additionally, Joe runs a private practice law firm, a strategic communications and government affairs lobbying firm, as well as a real estate development and investment firm that rehabilitates depressed homes for resale or lease. 

Professionally, what are you core competencies (greatest strengths):

Diligence, perseverance, risk-taking, coalition building, friendship building, critical thinking, writing, and concise and effective oral communication skills.  

What do you consider a significant career accomplishment?

Crafting federal legislation to modernize and streamline a major federal entitlement program during my time as a professional policy staffer in the United States House of Representatives. 

What’s an important lesson you’ve learned over your career?

People ultimately do what they really want to do. Most career people are busy, yet all will prioritize what they want to get done despite the barriers or challenges. Secondly, when in doubt, just take the next logical step, in faith.

What’s an important spiritual principle you’ve learned?

In any and all career decisions, asking Jesus how He wants you to handle a matter, no matter how miniscule or significant, has led me to make the best and most discerning decisions. Also, in order for a man to have a meaningful personal relationship with God, he needs at least three things: an adventure to live for; a battle to fight for; and a beauty to rescue.

What would you say to a young person starting out in life/career?

Take sincere stock and pay attention to other trusted stakeholders in your life when discussing how they see your strengths. Secondly, be highly mindful and deliberative on the career opportunities that come your way. They often are the career path the Lord is guiding you to take. 

A bullet about your family…

My family is God’s gift to me.  Katie, my wife of 18 years, is the bedrock of love and care for myself, our three precious children, our two dogs, and the caretaking our sanctuary and home in Centreville, Virginia. 

I’m retired from a TV production career started in 1966 after college and a stint in the US Army.

My greatest strengths are to be able to work with most anybody in a service/servant role. I’m also an intercessor and my wife and I are on the prayer team that is available to pray with people after each worship service and in our personal prayer time.

I guess my most significant accomplishments in that field would be filming and editing several films, one of which was a runner up in the national Emmy Awards competition for community documentaries. I’ve learned that I can get along with most anybody if I’m not concerned with my always being right or receiving credit. Spiritually I find those same lessons apply when doing things the Lord brings to me for my involvement, not usually in leadership. Just knowing I’ve been a part of something that must be pleasing to the Lord is very satisfying. All done in love.

I’m married to a wonderful, spirit filled woman whom I met then married three years after my first wife died of breast cancer in the 1990’s. I have a son who is 55 and two stepsons in their 50’s with whom I have very good relationships.

My primary Biblical learning (from a human source) was from Dr. Chuck Missler, founder of Koinonia House and Koinonia Institute. Many of his teachings are available on YouTube.

Marcus Salette
My cores strengths are critical thinking and problem solving, organizational and personal development, trauma-transitional coaching and thought leadership on futurism. I celebrate others because I see them forward.

My central career lesson is the power of team building and community collaboration. I’ve also learned to remain flexible in a changing labor market and be willing to adapt in the midst of continued technological advances.

My favorite principle is that there is always a cause to celebrate the growth of God’s DNA in human beings beyond behavioral expectations. “For God so loved the world that he gave…” John 3:16. Our love of others must be evident despite our personal preferences.

My most significant accomplishments are my investments in others growth. Over four decades of helping students, young adults, couples and organizations embrace life’s challenges and experience life’s victories despite the trauma in their families.

My advice in life is to be grateful for the present moment however victorious or disastrous because life will always change both for the worse and for the better. I am grateful for being a father and for the past experience of 35 years in married life.
