Coach Mahr's Statement of Purpose

Feedback about Coach Mahr

Coach Bob Mahr is answering a call to combine his life experiences as a business leader, a football coach, and a father with his faith to share insights and lessons learned. He uncovers how God’s prominence is interwoven through everyday life. He goes deep into the balance between experiencing the journey and the excitement of the destination. He emphasizes that we must enjoy the trip, respect the scenery, and most importantly love and connect with our fellow passengers.

Bob has worked 7 days a week, 12 hours a day, attended business meetings in 5 states in 5 days, traveled overseas for business, met other’s priorities and deadlines; all while sharing responsibilities with a working spouse to provide a stable home and raise three children. He has lived the “hurried” life, survived, and learned how to put it in the right context. Bob feels fortunate that through all of this, he has discovered something special and heard God’s whisper to share.

His life experiences feed his winsome anecdotes and imagery to create “stickiness” to his insights. He makes complex thoughts relatable to everyday life. He is letting God use him as His ‘Huckleberry’ to meet people where they are, inspire them to reflect on their situation and discern where they need to be. Coach creates guideposts along the way.

Coach Mahr is an accomplished Keynote Speaker, Dinner Emcee, Fundraiser Host, as well as Mentor. He has presented his thoughts before Corporations, Church Congregations, Volunteer Communities and Youth Groups.
