Lead Executive Coach

Dwight Riddick

Identifying and living your purpose is one of the hardest task in life today. Especially when most people often limit you to being this or that, one thing or another. All the while you know there’s more for you and in you beyond the generic labels that society has provided.
I was there. I was a computer science major, serving as a Senior Pastor, with a passion and mind for business. I just couldn’t figure out how to merge all three together to effectively impact the kingdom without stressing myself out.

I sometimes felt trapped and other times unfulfilled. Then when I tried to add pricing to my service I felt guilty for charging a cost. All of this left me wondering around day to day trying to figure out what I was really called to. I’m not a surfer at all, but I felt life was a surf Rider and I was constantly falling on my face. Or a it was a jump shot that I just could not make.
Then I learned about coaching. More specifically I learned about coaching from a pastor who was able to navigate the rough waters of passion and profit. It allowed me to use my computer skills and simply the process for others, and now I want to share my passion
