Dr. Daryl D. Green, a renowned business development expert famous for providing strategic planning, marketing, and product development to emerging and existing businesses is teaming up with founders of nonprofits to feed South African children with the aid of a new book. During the Thanksgiving holidays, individuals in the United States celebrate and give thanks for all their blessings and Dr. Green is taking it a notch higher by reaching out to charities in South Africa.

You Feed Them is now available on! All proceeds support Revelation Ministry

A recent report revealed that over three million South African children experienced hunger in 2021, with more than 600,000 children experiencing hunger every day. The National Income Dynamics Study – Coronavirus Rapid Mobile Survey (NIDS-CRAM) in April/May 2021 showed that about six out of 10 South Africans (58%) say that the Covid-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the income of their households. The pandemic and financial crises in South Africa has many more people on the streets without shelter or food, producing thousands of hungry children. However, Dr. Daryl D. Green seeks to alleviate the suffering of households, collaborating with well-meaning individuals like South African Pastor Ivan and Bronwynn Jones, who captured the needs of the South African children in a coffee table book, You Feed Me.

Pastor Ivan and Bronwynn Jones

Pastor Ivan and Bronwynn Jones are known for their generosity in the local community. Pastor Jones is the senior pastor at Revelation Ministry, based in the gang-infested and poverty-stricken neighborhood of Lavenderhill in the Western Cape in South African. Bronwyn is an ex-teacher while Pastor Jones has worked in the clothing industry for 16 years, as a manager/supervisor.  

“I always knew that God is calling us into full-time ministry….Our goal for the ministry is to equip men and women for service in the kingdom of God. I do have a strong character and strong belief that all things are possible with God,” said Pastor Jones. He and his wife, Bronwynn through their “Rise Up Children’s Project” have fed over 850 children daily at four feeding stations. Pastor Jones sees the publication of his book as an opportunity to get the story out about starving children and better help their communities. 

Dr. Daryl D. Green, a business professor in Oklahoma initiated the book project to stimulate more revenue for the couple’s ministry. In 2018, Dr. Green accompanied several students on a mission trip at his university, orchestrating a vacation bible school for Revelation Ministry. The encounter with Pastor Jones and his wife had a lasting impact on Dr. Green, inspiring him to do something for the ministry.


Pastor Ivan and Bronwyn were wonderful hosts to us in Cape Town. I was really touched by their ministry to the children. I just knew if my heart that they needed multiple levels of revenue to sustain their ministry. I believe in economic empowerment. Let’s teach people how to fish instead of giving them a fish,” said Dr. Green.

Children get fed regardless of the status of their families.

Dr. Green proposed a coffee table book to showcase the work of the South African couple visually, leveraging his connection and experience providing consulting, guidance, and management training for small businesses and new project start-ups. Over the years, he has evaluated over 100 organizations including Westinghouse, and Lockheed Martin.

The business development expert launched the book project for the couple with the help of his brand development manager, Antoinette Kelley.  “Kelley was the linchpin with her experience of publishing.  I knew that we could be successful.  The next phase is promoting the great work of Pastor Ivan and his wife to the world.

You Feed Them is currently available on for persons who want to learn about the plight of starving children in South Africa while supporting the cause championed by the ministry.

Disruption in Mission Work: New OBU Research Addresses Sustainable Growth Strategies

Oklahoma Baptist University (OBU) releases new published research entitled, ‘Mobilizing Missions in a Disruptive World: International Sports Federation Case Study,’ which provides functional significance in the sustainable growth for today’s non-profit organizations.

The structure of the American business economy has seen the prevalence of various non-profit organizations since the late 1800s. With religious pursuits as one of their main objectives, many such organizations have grown significantly over the years in its course of availability and services. With more such organizations cropping up in various verticals, the competition has also reached its highest pace.

This particular research is a collaborative output of students and professors that highlight the evident challenges of religious non-profit organizations in the  backdrop  of declining climate. The research is extremely crucial for experts and scholars to guide these organizations into adopting sustainable changes in support of climate change and also the dynamic and volatile marketplace. This research goes into the workflow of the international Sports Federation as a case study focusing on political, economic, social, environmental, and legal factors that collectively put the organization in a functional course. The direction of the business is directly dependent on these external factors that are always on the verge of dynamic change.

Even though non-profit, these establishments or organizations are always looking to maintain a strong position in the generic market. When sustainability and market growth come in a confluence of easily adaptable changes, the results are astounding. With a planet that is not only undergoing the wrath of climatic disruption, the other key factors of civilization, society, politics, economy, and culture are also in a constant position of alteration. The research concludes the importance of adopting sustainable changes so that both resources and market growth can lead the entire system into a better and maintainable framework.

An Uncertain World: Mapping Out Trump-Kim’s Nuclear Challenge

We live in a world riddled with risk and uncertainty. If you don’t believe this statement, please check the news. For example, President Trump increased global tension by canceling the US-North Korea summit in Singapore. Too many, canceling the historical meeting between the two countries were no surprise. Columnist Zach Beauchamp put it bluntly, “From the get-go, the Trump administration wanted something North Korea was never going to give: the North handing over its entire nuclear arsenal before the United States gave it anything tangible…there’s a fundamental flaw with America’s approach to North Korea that preceded Trump. That’s the fantasy that the US can somehow convince North Korea to voluntarily give up its nukes.”


President Trump and North Korea’s Leader Kim Jong Un have hurdle insults at each other (especially through social media) for months. President Trump proclaimed about Kim: “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.” Kim fires back to Trump: “If the American imperialists provoke us a bit, we will not hesitate to slap them with a pre-emptive nuclear strike. The United States must choose! It’s up to you whether the nation called the United States exists on this planet or not.” This rhetoric between the two leaders have many citizens worried about a nuclear war. Continue reading

Cultural Intelligence: How Leaders Can Navigate the Racial Divide in America

Racial Divide-2017

In June of 1995, the Jury in the OJ Simpson trial announced a verdict of not guilty. The aftermath of dismal reactions highlighted significant conflicts and diverging views in America’s workplaces. In fact, white and black people had a different perspective on the OJ Simpson Trial and life in general. Eighty-three percent of whites stated that Simpson was “definitely” or “probably” guilty while only fifty-seven percent of blacks agreed with this assessment. Rather than carefully assessing one’s own viewpoint when evaluating a different culture, most individuals make assumptions about other cultures definitely.

Sadly, we still have not learned this lesson in the United States. The last several days have been very hectic as I try to answer students’ questions and address my own concerns about a recent Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary gaff that has provided another headwind for others sharing the Good News. Let me say that we have all done foolish things and have suffered the consequences. Most of us have had to debase the impacts of this photo on our popular culture to our students and others.

In the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth (TX), five seminary professors, including the dean of the School of Preaching, put on gangster-style clothing (perhaps dressing like urban rappers), flashing their gold chains and one holding a handgun. Written above the photo were the words “Notorious S.O.P,” which was a reference to the seminary’s School of Preaching and to the black rapper, Notorious B.I.G.
