DATES: June 2019

As a board member of Adam Davis Ministries, I am honored to present to you Adam's recent podcast with Team Never Quite Podcast.

In today’s episode, the guys are interviewing best selling author, Adam Davis. Adam spent many years as a police officer and like many officers, the stress caught up to him. The job can put so much stress on a marriage as well as many aspects of the home life for police officers. Adam decided to use his experience to help other officers by writing and sharing his wisdom via his books and podcast. He is going to share his greatest never quit story and just how he pulled himself out of the pits that he found himself in after the badge. Hopefully, you can take something away from this and put it towards your own story so that you never quit!

The TEAM NEVER QUIT (TNQ) Podcast is unlike any other podcast available. Two Navy SEALs who’ve known each other for years sharing their amazing life experiences in a humorous, heartfelt and entertaining way. Mr. “Never Quit” himself, Marcus Luttrell and the insanely high energy “Instructor Rut”, David Rutherford are together delivering a powerful message as if they’ve been hosting a podcast for decades. Their incredible energy and camaraderie not only comes from their time in the SEAL Teams but also due to the past 10 years inspiring audiences of all types. These two Frogmen have been motivating millions of people around the world with their unique styles of motivational speaking, writing and coaching.

"I have known Sr. Chaplain Ken Schlenker, M.Div. for a decade. He is an Approved Instructor for the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (a United Nations affiliated organization I co-founded 22 years ago) and Resiliency Science Institutes. I have known his work through both affiliations. Sr. Chaplain Schlenker is bright and energetic. One conversation with him and a review of his accomplishments reveal him to be a true visionary. His pioneering efforts and his dedication to excellence have led to seminal initiatives in the areas of crisis intervention and human resilience. He is an excellent trainer with an ability to effectively teach to persons at many different academic and experience levels."

"I must say I am glad I took the classes and the opportunity to use what I was taught. I have a couple whose adult son went missing for a few weeks whom I was able to be with while their son was missing. I was able to talk with him when he showed back up. Also have a very close friend of my family whose son committed suicide. What made it even more difficult was that it was his second child to have done the same thing. The first occurring five years earlier. I was able to help them as a result of the things I learned in your classes. I didn’t say any of the stupid stuff people normally say and was just there for them to cry and talk with and help them physically with dinners. It’s hard to explain, but I saw the situation differently after your class. I knew how to walk with them in their grief. What you taught us made me a better person, I believe and am now more willing and wanting to help others then I ever have before. Thank you."

"I’ve known Ken for many years and have witnessed his mastery of developing and presenting cutting edge, student-centered training experiences using the principles of Instructional System Design. His passion and expertise in the area of crisis intervention strategies and suicide prevention are simply outstanding and their applications into the military, law enforcement and first responder communities provides a priceless service. Ken is always seeking to raise his bar of instructional knowledge and application which allows him to consistently deliver training at the highest levels. Ken is the finest example of instructional system design and deliver."
