An illustrator/designer by trade, Duke has worked in the tactical and firearms industry since 2007. Even as a seminary graduate, he found his life began to be weighed down more and more with depression and addiction that he couldn’t seem to get away from.
Hitting rock bottom, God showed Duke he needed to make an ‘All-In, All-The-Time’ decision to God’s way of life. Having realized this was the piece he was missing, Duke was also immediately aware of this critical fact: he needed to get to know God as his Best Friend.
Duke dove in to training, following God’s instruction, learning the ABC’S of ‘Being Best Friends With God’.
While continuing to work in the industry, attend training classes and staying connected with people in the industry, he founded a church in 2013, along with his wife of 17 years. He has been able to help many others be introduced to and learn about this simple but results-rich lifestyle. These same ABC principles still fuel everything he does, and drives his excitement to introduce others to being best friends with God.
It’s these same principles that MISIFIT TOY SOCIETY is founded upon.
