Ron Lively, M.Div., M.A., Founder & Director
As a chaplain ordained in 1983, I continue to serve as a coach, counselor, and mentor to encourage and equip saints for the works of service as directed in Ephesians 4. After many years of serving in the healthcare industry (hospital finance, hospital chaplaincy, etc), I earned both of my degrees from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS. I then spent a decade as a Mid-South regional director for the Christian Medical & Dental Associations (CMDA) where I was also served as the national director of Medical Marriage & Family Ministries. I initiated the program for the marriage enrichment retreats after offering a few weekend marriage retreats targeting the couples in residency training. The I was recruited to serve with The Navigators on the Business & Professional Team with their Physicians Discipleship Ministries being based at the Glen Eyrie Conference Center in Colorado Springs. We offered several enrichments retreats for couples and families of physicians and dentists. Presently, our organization based in Franklin, TN area is Healthy Initiative Ministries (HIM) dba Medical Mobilizers and now dba Biblical Mentoring. Our mentoring / training sessions are for anyone interested who will commit to mentoring / training others in Christ. We hope to resume some work with health professionals addressing their faith, practice and service needs. This may include life coaching for career decisions; discipleship training and mentoring; counseling; and offering relevant resources. The focus with our Team is on training for life-to-life 30 minute weekly mutual mentoring sessions via phone calls. So as we say, we are some committed disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ who are seeking to be faithful to His Commission in Matthew 28:18-20 to “go and make (train) disciples” who are disciple-making disciples.
