our genesis

   Many years ago, a very above average man committed a very below average crime. The results were devastating, to him and many others. But many more were resolved to stand with him through the long journey ahead. Along the way, he experienced the natural three-pronged course of Hope: hopeless, hopeful, and hope-filled.   

   Years later, after leaving the pit and climbing the pinnacle, he was able to voice his journey in a five minute narrative ballad, put to the music that was in his head and transformed to a tune on his guitar.

   Thus the background of the three part ballad, I Need a Vacation.  We are blessed by this man's life that has made a remarkable impact on so many so far and so many more tomorrow. 

   From this life, the following ministries have touched the hearts and lives of thousands:  Life After Prison Ministries and  Redemption RoadHouse Feeding Centers.
