The two essential qualities of mentor leadership are proven track record and worthy of being imitated. For rapid recall of these two dynamic, life-changing principles I call them PTR & WOBI.

Special words of encouragement from Mike Weaver, Spokane’s noted Videographer. 

nbc-basketball-camps-coachingI cannot emphasize enough how thoroughly impressed I am with the CIC staff. Professional, full of integrity, compassionately confrontational, all in, with laser sharp focus even at the end of the day. Men of honor, grace and strength, every one of them. You are establishing rock solid foundations for young men, one at a time, discipleship-style. I’m ONCE AGAIN, honored to know you and the people you consistently surround yourself with. Jay, R Jay, Justin, Rhett, Logie, Thomas, Josh, Geoff… ALLSTARS, ROCKSTARS! I love them and their hearts.

Mike, the Dreamweaver, inspires us to examine our own PTR & WOBI.  Mike spotlights the value in “hanging out,” with the right kind of folks.

One of the cornerstones in my life, has been and will continue to be, Psalm One.

“Blessed are those who do not seek the counsel of wicked people nor walk in the path with sinners nor sits in the seat with scoffers.”

“That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither– whatever they do prospers.”

These are the kind of trees we want to train up for the next generation the only way this works guy is if we become that kind of tree, what kind of tree you are you what kind of tree am I?

The choice of the kind of tree we are become ours and ours alone. Let’s join Joshua who said, “But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
