The Institute

The Institute's mission is to coach, teach, and train. This includes pastors, business people, ministers, corporate executives, boards of directors, young adults, prisoners, military personnel, every leader type, college and universities, educators, to accomplish all of their God directed mandates: to function under a protected anointing and to preserve and enhance their personal lives, this is accomplished through practical application ‘how to’ instruction and skill development in a unique scriptural system of methods, processes, and procedures.


The System

To “perpetuate the succession plan of Christ.”


Jesus was the greatest leader that ever lived. Jesus built the greatest succession plan ever in just three years, and it is going strong well over 2000 years later. It is not as strong as it could be because leaders are not as strong as they should be.

  • This system is based on the principles of Jesus. This system brings order to dysfunction and unity to chaos. 

  • This system prevents the tragedy of ministers and businesspeople “uncalling” themselves and self-destructing. 

  • This system provides newfound hope and confidence, overcoming leaders discouraged, despondent, demoralized, and depressed.

  • This system defeats the ‘arching void of underachievement and gives God a great R.O.I. - return on the greatest investment of all time.
