The Faces Of PcbIn addition to his consulting work Stephen serves as President/CEO of the Panama City Rescue Mission, a faith-based nonprofit organization working to help the people experiencing poverty and homelessness in the local area.

Helping people improve seems to be a theme in your life. What motivates you in this regard?

I enjoy helping people improve results in their lives by sharing the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and transforming their minds by teaching people how to think using the higher mental faculties to master their mind so their mind doesn’t master them. Currently, I am working to do just that with the most socioeconomically challenged populations of our area through the Mission.

Where do you see yourself in 5 to 10 years?

Loving people, doing kind things, and playing a good part helping the world to find Truth; which comes when people understand how to be in control of their mind with situations, circumstances, or people that cause them to think a certain way. Complete freedom and the peace that surpasses understanding is obtained when a person is not attached to any particular outcome. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, ‘The Law of Laws is Cause and Effect.’ Most people focus on effects and don’t go to the cause, which is the only way to make any change permanent.

What do you love most about what you do?

I love to help people to eradicate ignorance and improve any situation or circumstance in their lives they want to change. My mission is to help people add more years to their life, and more life to their years. I teach the principles of a ‘life success’ model that integrates both theology and science, the only two philosophies mankind has to work with. Theology is the study of the Creator and science is the study of the Creation. Our society in general teaches separation of theology and science, when they are really two sides of the same thing. You can’t have a Creator without a Creation, nor a Creation without a Creator.

Who is the most interesting person you’ve met here in our community?

Richard Dodd, P.E., Reliant South – An Empower Partner helping the Mission improve the lives of people challenged by homelessness. I’m grateful to work with Richard implementing new ideas that replace the toxic charity model for one of compassionate service.
