For 30 years, Wally has trained leaders in relational discipleship. The result has been the transformation of hundreds of men, to live out their God-given mission- bringing restoration to their lives, their wives, and their families. Wally believes strong families make strong churches and healthy communities, and that if you reach the man in the household you transform the entire family.
Wally lives in Rhode Island with his wife Jane, daughter Hayley, and son Brandon. Before coming on staff with Priority One, Wally served as a missionary in the US & overseas with a mission agency called Church Resource Ministries for 18 years, focusing on identifying and equipping men as leaders through living life together. He’s served with Marked Men for Christ since 2011, and has been New England Regional Director since 2015.Wally’s core values and mission aligns with Priority One’s mission to build stronger men for Christ, heal marriages, encourage godly fatherhood, and actively pursue the kingdom. He is excited to carry the Priority One Ministry into New England.
Wally’s passionate dedication to Kingdom focuses on reaching people desperate for Jesus to invade their heart, to heal them and set them free them from themselves and the world. Wally walks alongside people as they encounter the Holy Spirit to lead and guide them into all truth. Wally is a connector. He connects people to churches and ministries to see them grow. Likewise, he connects churches and ministries to people that desire to offer their gifts and leadership for strengthening the local church and community ministries.
Wally loves great conversations from the heart and enjoys one on one and small group fellowship that focuses on going deeper into God’s Story. Family time is important, enjoying vacations together and just hanging out and having fun motorcycle riding, snowmobiling, swimming in the ocean, and leading mission teams to different countries.
