Most of us have battled the feeling that there’s “never enough” in some aspect of our lives…whether it’s money, time, relationships or margin. In times of loss and pain, we wonder what the secret is to accessing the abundance that Jesus promises. The God Guarantee transforms how you see the seemingly broken and hopeless areas of life and invites you to a new experience of God’s provision…in the 4-part pattern that is revealed in the book and course.
A good challenge to all of us longing to serve God but finding ourselves in places of fear of truly following Him. Through biblical examples and personal stories, Jack explains the goodness of God’s design and our need to resist the mentality of scarcity in our lives. The God Guarantee is an excellent read for those wanting to go deeper in generosity, vulnerability and community.
My wife and I were so blessed by this book and are recommending it to all our leaders. When you get trapped in your false self and in a scarcity mindset, life quickly loses its purpose and your vision becomes small. This book helps open up the heart and mind to the amazing capacity of everything God has made and God’s desire to see us flourish.
Jack understands the hidden motivation behind our actions of generosity or lack thereof. He takes you though his story and journey of discovery of what makes a successful steward in God’s economy. Jack lives his message and speaks volumes in a humble voice. This is a ‘must read’ for men and women serious about their goal of hearing the words “well done, good and faithful servant.”
Jack’s spiritual journey involves losing his father at age 9 to coming into faith in his mid-20’s at a small church in Melbourne, Australia where he was challenged to give away his last $1,000. Trained as a CPA, he worked for a leading international accounting firm. Through this experience, a European client hired him and together they started two companies, BCD Travel and TRX, which grew to over 6,000 employees and $350 million in revenues. Both companies enjoyed recurring appearances on the Inc. 500 and won awards for innovation. As CEO of BCD Travel from 1987 to 2002, Jack lead the organization as it grew to the 2nd largest corporate travel company in the U.S. Simultaneously, Jack acquired a technology firm, TRX, which created transaction-processing software for the travel industry. Under his leadership, TRX grew from just 4 programmers to over 1,000 employees and generated more than $50 million in revenue. The company was ultimately purchased by Concur.

Fourteen months later, he negotiated the sale of the company to Reed Elsevier. He then became CEO of Last Minute Tee-Times, the 2nd largest online tee-time organization in the country. He helped restructure the company and negotiate a very successful sale to Comcast. Then, in 2010, Jack became Vice Chairman and Partner of The Rainmaker Group Ventures, LLC. The company grew to be the largest revenue management software system for apartments in the country.
