Executive Director of Shepherds Advantage Inc.

Hi, my name is Garry and Shepherdsadvantageinc.com is my blog. Read on to learn how my blog can help you grow as a servant leader.Garry 003

Who my blog/podcast can help

I launched this blog/podcast to engage servant leaders that direct a wide variety of non-profit organizations who are looking to be encouraged and challenged as they make a difference in their communities.

What I blog/podcast about

I help motivated but often times over-whelmed servant leaders refocus on their unique gifts so they can passionately influence others based on their mission. I write and speak on topics such as:

  • Stress
  • Life Calling
  • Working with leadership teams
  • Visioning
  • Leadership principles

IMG_0080I normally publish once per week. To make sure you do not miss my posts you can subscribe on the sign-up in the upper right corner.

Why I blog/podcast

Being a servant leader for over 30 years, I am very passionate about leaders making a community impact through non-profit efforts. However, I understand the pressures and stress of leading volunteers and difficult budgets. I have worked hard in my personal and professional life to stay focused in my faith, family, and leading. This has equipped me in connecting with other leaders who desire to make a difference.

We must constantly learn and grow, Albert Einstein stated that we cannot change our circumstances with the same thinking that created it. My experience has taught me that leaders cannot lead beyond their thinking. My blog posts and podcasts are designed to share rich lessons and values that enhance leadership skills.

About my family

IMG_0655I have been happily married to my wife Connie since 1975. YES, there have been some bumps in the road of life, but she is my source of great joy and encouragement. I am blessed to have a son and daughter – Brandon and Tiffany. Also I have the best son-n-law and daughter-n-law – Dallas and Michelle.One of the greatest things in life is “grand-children.” That makes me smile!

I am a third generation Christian leader. This heritage has given me a solid foundation in life to conquer impossible odds. My family has encouraged, motivated, and supported my learning journey to achieve a Bachelors, Master of Arts, and Doctorate of Ministry Degrees.10521730_10202576741211691_6773516546390668167_o
