Passionate About Using My Gifts to Make a Wake
In 2005, together with our business, my wife and I started a nonprofit, 320 Watersports, to help youth navigate towards their own purpose in life. It is a faith-based ministry and watersports is the tool we use to connect with youth. We desire for all people to know Jesus and we want today’s youth to grow strong in their faith and be bold living it out in a world that is trying to silence them. It is important that today’s youth understand that life comes with difficulties and hard work, which most business owners know all too well.
In 2013, after 3 long years of prayer, my wife and I made one of the hardest decisions we’ve ever had to make. We let go of our business in order to focus more on the ministry of 320.
Many people asked, “Why give up a profitable business to work with a ministry?”
In all honesty, I have asked myself that very same question many, many times. Especially when personal finances tighten up and we must rely on odd jobs to provide for our necessities. With that said, I know this opportunity was a calling for me to show youth that someone cares.
