What You'll Learn

With ReTooled and ReFueled you'll learn real solutions to real-life struggles, how to overcome the pettiness that holds us back, refreshing, optimistic, informative, and challenging strategies and a bucket-load of great 'take-aways' for immediate improvement! ReTooled & ReFueled is a profoundly Biblical seminar featuring 5 Powerful Sessions.  This positive, up-beat approach is a welcome breath of fresh air for teens and adults who are burdened and broken by the stresses of life.


No Debt, No Sweat!

Another popular seminar, No Debt No Sweat!'s teachings on Christian money management have had a profound effect on people around the world. People are learning to live within their means. Some are able to give more. Marriages are closer. Others have learned how to avoid bankruptcy. Instead of pandering to the “wealth and prosperity” teachings that are so popular today, Steve gives clear, simple, practical solutions with a Biblical base.
