Son of an agnostic Jewish father and Lutheran mother, Eli met Christ in basic training at Ft. Jackson, South Carolina. (That's a story too long to tell here).

Powerfully called to ministry (another story), Eli received his Master's Degree in Student ministry, then serving churches in Texas, Florida, Georgia and Colorado. It was in the early years that he "discovered" the ineffectiveness of curriculum as a dependable vehicle for life change.

Now, more than 25 years of study, mentoring, experimentation, and leadership development has resulted in iDiscover - a transferable, leader-developing, life-changing strategy for small group Bible study.

  • Enhance your chosen curriculum. 
  • Evaluate potential curriculum.  
  • Develop leaders who can serve curriculum-free.
