It was while teaching the Bible at Moody Theological Seminary in Chicago, IL, Walt became passionate in connecting with ministry friends to help fund God's work. At T Bar M as their Development Director he sees the unique transformation which occurs when sold out coaches die to self and sacrificially love their campers in the power of the Lord.
