I'M MATTHEW RUFFNER

I'm a developer of people and ideas for a new way forward. 

For the past seven years, I've served as the lead pastor of a faith community of nearly three-thousand in Dallas, Texas.  I've also been a coach, guide, advisor, idea generator, cheerleader, and counselor to leaders who want to go deeper.

There is nothing like the moment when an idea is born, or when a connection is made, or when we finally take the first step towards our dream.

Those are not singular events. In truth, there are thousands of moments in our lives that reveal there is a deeper, truer, and richer path for us all. 

So if you want to go deeper, and:

Grow personally and discover how you live is how you lead.

Lead from your true self and not from a book.

Discover your true voice and grow as a communicator.

Discern what's next for you and how best to take the next step.

...it would be a privilege to be part of your journey.

STORIES FROM THE DEEP

Home: Testimonials

Several years ago my son was learning to swim and would regularly, with great enthusiasm, jump right after his big sister into the deep end of the pool. He thought it was hilarious.  We did not!  Much to our chagrin and constant warning, he just kept jumping in the deep end.  It was after his fifth jump, and our subsequent reminder for him to stay in the shallow it, that it finally occurred to me, the whole thing is the deep end to a three year old.  There is no shallow end for a three year old.  The whole thing is the deep end.

The whole thing is the deep end. You are in the deep end!  


It’s a matter of awakening to that truth and to begin living from there. 

THE JOURNEY BEGINS HERE
