“As a friend and consultant, Dick Epps has been a valuable asset to the success of our organization. His ability to analyze the needs and resources of each individual organization allows him to look down the road and devise a unique plan for success. His ability to come alongside without “taking over” demonstrates his desire to see not just an organization succeed, but the personal fulfillment of all the individuals involved.”

“What a daunting reality a blank sheet of paper or a pristine whiteboard can be. It takes a special and gifted person to begin
to visualize an event or a strategy. Mark Jevert is an individual who does just that. While others in the room flail, Mark distills; he focuses; he creates. Ideas and concepts take shape under Mark’s guidance, and with them, vision begins to become reality.”

“I’ve sat with John in meetings and watched him listen, assess, and then speak with discernment. But that’s not all. John goes into action. He is “hands-on” as he leads the way, whether it’s in developing more effective organizational function or fashioning ways to alleviate the burdens of the poverty-stricken. John leads with discernment, purpose, and a servant’s heart.”
~ Dr. Bill Ronzheimer, President/Director, Marriage Reconstruction Ministries
