What is Halftime? 

Most people are over prepared for the first half of life and underprepared for the second half.  And there’s no university for the second half of life.” – Peter Drucker

  • “Halftime” is a phrase that was coined by Bob Buford and refers to the stage that many people reach (usually somewhere in mid-life) where they become more aware of their life, where it is going and where they want it to change.
  • It is a time when, despite and often following success, frustration and emptiness motivate people to start asking the hard questions and seek a more purpose-driven life.
  • Halftime provides us with the vital pause to reflect on who you  are, what you have to work with, your successes and failures of the first half, and then to make intimate contact with God to receive your unique assignment for the second half.

How do you get from here to there? 

The healthiest Halftimers do not travel the road alone. Rather, they connect with a coach or with peers who are on their own journey and learn from others who have successfully made it to the other side.

We can help (Cascaded title)

We focus our efforts on individuals just like you—marketplace leaders with a deep desire for a second half rich in eternal significance.

  1. CORE– who am I and what is my mission/purpose on earth?
  2. CAPACITY– how can I develop extra margin with my time, money and spiritual overflow?
  3. CONTEXT– what is the best platform/workplace and role that fits me the best in order to live out my calling?

How do we serve people?
