About Me

As a Coaching Professional since 2000, I’ve helped my clients break through the obstacles that hold them back in life.

At LeaderwiZe I use the leadership wisdom from John Maxwell along with cutting edge innovation; to bring more zeal and efficiency to organizations, business professionals and individuals in all walks of life who want to go that extra mile to reach all of their hopes and dreams for a better future.

After successfully leading churches for 40 plus years in the United States, Pastor Rip (what most of his friends call him) turned his unique people skills to the international arena where he is a respected and highly sought after speaker and trainer in the area of leadership and vision.

In 2007 Rip formed, Hope House International, an organization dedicated to Raising Hope through transformation living. Rip has conducted seminars and training events enabling churches and equipping leaders across the United States, Nicaragua, India and Africa. His passion is developing people to reach their fullest potential.

Last year he and his wife of 36 years moved to the Greenville area to experience the joys of being grandparents. Just ask if you want to see a picture.

His favorite quote is from John Maxwell which simply states, “When you find your why you find your way.”

Life's too short to be unhappy or unfulfilled — so what’s holding you back? Let me help you learn better ways to handle the issues that are standing in the way of your pursuits.
