Independent Certified Coach & Speaker of The John Maxwell Team
Coach | Trainer | Speaker
Dustin is an Independent Certified Coach, Trainer and Speaker with The John Maxwell Team, aspiring author, husband, father, and follower of Jesus Christ.
I was first introduced to a book by John Maxwell called “Leading from the Lockers” in High School. In 2012, I became a Founding and Certified Member of the John Maxwell Team. I was trained in coaching, speaking, and leadership by John Maxwell and his staff.
For eight years I was the children's pastor at Prairie Heights Community Church in Fargo, ND. My job was to provide world-class environments for children to learn about faith and build friendships. My responsibility grew from overseeing 60 children and 30 volunteers in 2009 to over 400 children, 225 volunteers (including 16 volunteer leaders I recruited), and 3 staff in 2017.
In fall of 2018, I became a Campus Director of a daycare in Fargo, ND. I began overseeing 3 daycare centers with 90 children and 30 staff. It became 4 centers with 118 children and over 40 staff when I left in January 2020. My responsibilities included: leading a management team of four Site Leaders, addressing parent concerns, hiring, firing, and scheduling staff, and assisting in planning two all company staff workshop days.
My family and I moved to Woodbury, MN in 2020 to be closer to family and to pursue the opportunity to work with small businesses in the Twin Cities.
Helping you pursue YOUR potential and purpose!
My personal health and family life had been out of balance for years, but it finally caught up with me in 2018. I had been leading others but ignoring the unhealthy habits in my own life. It forced me to resign from a leadership position I loved and was faced with the possibility of losing my wife and children. I finally admitted I had a problem and sought out the help I needed from Hopequest Ministry Group. While I'm not fixed, I'm a happier, healthier version of myself committed to growing each day and being at peace with my savior, Jesus Christ. My desire is to live in an authentic community and add value to the people and companies God brings my way.
It became evident to me, in order to enter The Growth Zone, you must first leave your comfort zone!
