He's been a national leader in the movement toward Positive Rural Development. He is the author of the groundbreaking book in this effort, The Organization of Hope: A Workbook for Rural Asset-Based Community Development. Most of all, he has successfully trained and facilitated thousands of rural participants across the nation to build on our rural assets to get things done for the better.
