Pastor Alan is uniquely qualified because of his vast experience in ministry, as his teachings focus on the application of God’s Word in the areas of faith, family, and finances, teaching and empowering individuals to identify and use their God-given gifts.  His love of God and His people, has led him to establish his fundraising efforts, that by working together and helping others, people of God can engage and use their individual gifts and calling in various outreach ministries around the world.

Pastor Richard Alan has been an ordained minister now for over 35 years and has been either the Senior Pastor or a Member of the Pastoral Staff of five different Churches during that time.  He has been involved in fundraising and charitable causes for many years, working with Churches, as well as charitable organizations and companies having a heart for philanthropy and charitable giving.  He has also worked in the area of research and development concerning fundraising and has headed up the development of a fundraising department with a former company as its Director.
