July 6th-8th, 2023
ABOUT THE EVENT /
The Apex Gathering is three days to spend with other Kingdom builders from all different demographics to pause // connect // grow // go. We believe having people to lock arms with and to experience connection with is the key to long term success in sharing Jesus with a world who is desperately searching for Him.
The Apex Gathering is three life changing days each summer. More than just a three-day experience, our hope is that being a part of an Apex Gathering starts a journey for you of growing closer to Jesus all the while bringing others with you.
Our time together will focus on conversations and intentional teaching times from participants and facilitators alike. There will be time for reflection, dreaming, innovating and growing, coupled with conversations with people who understand what a life of investing in Kingdom Building endeavors. It is our hope and prayer that everyone involved with an Apex Gathering will come expecting change and growth in our own lives which we can only hope will spill over onto those around us. We truly believe this time will change the landscape of our hearts and the trajectory of our lives and unique leadership contexts.
Our three days together will be filled with life-giving resources, rich conversation, and other meaningful experiences. We are intentionally vague on some the specific details of our time together because, well, we can, and a little mystery adds to the excitement. You'll be on a need to know basis, knowing what you need to know in plenty of time.
All Apex Gatherings are filled with Kingdom Builders through an application process. No matter what the context you are currently living and leading in, your desire to build the Kingdom in your unique leadership context, and dream about what it could be is what makes an Apex Gathering right for you.
We believe that Kingdom Builders must keep their hearts in pursuit of Jesus which means, we have our eye on the goal and we aren't turning back, all the while being reminded we aren't the experts in all of this, but must remain life long learners.
The Apex Gathering will be Thursday - Saturday July 6th-8th, 2022.
WHO WE ARE
We believe all followers of Jesus - not just those whose career is in ministry - are called to be Kingdom Builders. Our mission and passion is to collaborate with these Kingdom Builders to help them more effectively further the message of hope in Jesus in any boardroom, restaurant, church, neighborhood, and everything in between.
We v a l u e having a high standard of excellence while being approachable, real, and comfortable with who we are in order to grow as kingdom builders who want to make the name of Jesus known.
Our d e s i r e is to provide high-impact, trench-tested training in community with an intimate group of kingdom builders. In an effort to increase longevity and prevent burnout, we also desire to maintain continuous connections outside of our organized gatherings.

Meet The Team
"The Wizard of Lightbulb Moments"
I live in Minnesota, with my wife Calli and our three kids. The Twin Cities is buzzing with culture - food, drink, coffee, micro-breweries, and lots of lost and hurting people. This is our home, I love it here.
I'm the founder and lead visionary of Apex Leadership Institute. I have a deep desire for people to develop their God given ability to lead and love others. I'm also a Campus Pastor at a Church called Embrace, Our church is built around the very simple idea of reaching the next person for Jesus. We believe the way of Jesus is a way of life that offers hope to the hopeless, redemption to the lost, and peace to the restless.
My life's ambition is to be with Jesus, become like him, and try to do what he did. My prayer is the stuff I'm a part of helps you do the same.
"Chief Trouble Maker"
I am married to my wonderful wife, Hayley, and dad to my two boys Noah and Aidan. As a business leader in Arizona and a business consultant, I have been able to develop systems and put leadership principles into action every day. This has given me the time to pour into my role as Board President for Paladin Sports Outreach and as Board Vice President of Apex Leadership Institute. I love to find ways to continually grow and to help those around me to do the same. I enjoy coaching my sons’ sports in Paladin and traveling with my wife the most.
I want to be a carrier of joy in whatever situation and season I am in. I love to travel and meet new people. You can find me adventuring to the mountains in Montana, which is where I currently live. I have been involved in ministry for 8+ years, whether that has been being an intern, volunteer, youth director, or pouring into those that are leading the next generation. My heart is to be with people and love them like Jesus. I love a good living room chat with friends and an opportunity to speak about the story of God in front of my younger friends. Overall, God has called me to lead. My roles have changed within my career path, but my call has stayed the same. Currently, my eyes are set on investing in my role as an admin coordinator at a residential eating disorder facility. When I took this position, I had no idea that God was going to call me to lead in this way. My eyes have been opened to something new and necessary. More than ever, I see the need for Kingdom builders in whatever capacity we are in.
