In 1995 I redidicated my life to God at Bible school then made a trip to Prairie High School (this is a year after I graduated from there). I preached a sermon on living for God and saw God move among the people. It was in that week I caught a glimpse of what I would like to be doing.
At about the same time my brother, a graphic artist, started up a company called "Whitehaven Design" and started producing T-shirts with the logo of a guy walking on it. It was intended as a conversation started. What is that? Oh, Authentic Walk. Authentic meaning genuine and walk being a deliberate movement in a chosen direction. So to have a genuine life of following God.
Over time, my brother recieved a job working for another company and the little guy was put on the shelf.
When I returned from Russia in 1997 I was introduced to the Internet and my brother helped me learn how to write a web page.
I returned to my 3rd year of Bible school and had a burden to do a seminar on holiness for our Youth Convention called Youth Quake. I talked to those in charge and they told me to do it twice and they would review it to see if that is what they wanted.
In this process I wrote about 7 versions of the seminar, each time learning more and become more clearer (thus the reason why discovering through writting lessons is so important to the philosophy of Authentic Walk)
During this time my brother let me use the name Authentic Walk and we bought the domain name.
Finally, I partnered with a man of God named Andrew Bartha and we did a presentation to about 70 young people at Youth Quake 1999 called "Authentic Walk: The Struggle to Live for God".
From there I graduated, worked at Frontier Lodge Wilderness Camp as the summer pastor and camp speaker (where I rewrote the seminar a few more times)
Now I am looking forward to having others join me in this vision to help disciple people around the world using the net.
