Welcome to the crazy Springer life, journey and daily walk of faith…
I am a guy who has a talent for doing things the hard way and getting lost. However, in my doing things the hard way and getting lost, I have learned some great life lessons, met some incredible people and learned the value of asking for help.
I wake up every day humbly thankful for life, an awesome family, four amazing sons, good supportive friends and new opportunities. I also believe that one of my greatest gifts and life’s pursuit is working with and encouraging others to do great things.
I love music, the arts, community development, interior – design and am passionate about building relationships and meeting new and interesting people. One of my greatest hopes is that I can use my gifts, passion an experiences to spread the incredible message of freedom that I have found through truth, love, grace and persistence to as many people as possible.
Over the last combined 20+ years it has been a privilege to serve; to serve our amazing country with the USMC during Desert Storm and as a worship/music leader, community planner and missionary in Hungary, AL, IN, CA, FL and TX. It has also been a blessing to serve in small town America as the Executive Director of the Shelbyville, IN Redevelopment Commission.
I love working in higher education and community development. Throughout my life and experiences, literally around the globe, I have been blessed to meet, work with and learn from some incredibly talented, gifted and compassionate people.
I am passionate about diversity, inclusivity and collaboratively working with others to increase the quality of life for all people. I am also thankful I have been be able to bring my family to Texas and get back home… to my roots…
Some collaborative projects I am proud of are the Soules College of Business YouTube Channel, www.experienceshelbycounty.com, ShelbyvilleCityVoice and co-writing and recording two original songs: “Change In Me” and “Lifting Me Up”.
One of my greatest desires right now is for the Lord to heal our son Samuel of Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD) and for a medical breakthrough to end this horrible disease and rescue all the other children and families that are fighting this fight!
