'Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.' Phil 2:3-4

Where Passion meets Purpose! Ephesians 3:20-21
A little background... My name is Michael Huth and I was raised in a Christian home and my parents were married almost 50 years when my Dad passed ten years ago. My Mom still lives in the same home they built 47 years ago and still goes to the same Methodist Church in Jefferson City, MO. She is an incredible lady, who goes dancing several times a week, has never met a stranger and is typically the last person to leave any event. I have a younger sister, who lives in St. Louis with her wonderful family.
I went to a Christian College in Missouri, but acted more like the Prodigal Son and drifted from God. Luke 15:11–32. We'll leave this chapter short, as life during that time focused too much on myself and I hadn't learned that life is most enjoyed by enriching the lives of others first.
I met my wife, Amy, over 23 years ago and she guided me to a relationship with Jesus Christ. She is my inspiration and motivates me to be a better man, husband, father and friend.
We’ve been married for over 21 years and have a 19 year old daughter, Kayla, and a 15 year old son, Tyler. We have worked hard to be a family that obeys the Word of God and our lives have been blessed - although not always smooth :)
My wife has been blessed to be able to stay at home, manage our family and manages all social channels for Rise Above. She has helped build our foundation based on a principal she has consistently taught and lived: 'Know Who you are and What you believe'.
That has instilled a confidence and solid foundation into our children. Our daughter has been a praise and worship leader for the last 7 years and been on 4 international mission trips, plus numerous domestic mission and service trips. Our son has been a leader since birth and inspires others to push their limits and reach their potential. He is a creative and unique problem solver and consumes knowledge, especially about anything that flys. He started a Drone Arial Video busines at age 13 and has a variety of other endeavors as well.
About 12 years ago, we lead a home Bible study group based on the book by Rick Warren, A Purpose Driven Life. Through that experience, considerable prayer and counsel, I have discovered that my Purpose is to use my technology and marketing gifts to ‘help people who help people’ – specifically people who further God’s kingdom. I believe God has gifted me and directed me to help you.
I’ve had a saying for years ‘Let everyone do, what they do best!’ For the last 30 years, I have worked in computer software and the last 18 years within marketing and advertising.
I would love to work with people that want to be stronger together!
