Dr. Rick Wallace, Ph.D. is a champion of the cause of black men reclaiming their positions as leaders, protectors, providers, and coverings for their families and others. He believes that although women, as a whole, have adapted to the fact that men — in some ways — have abdicated their divinely ordained positions (However, in most ways they have been robbed of their rights to occupy these roles) as heads in the home, Church, Mosque and community, this country, as a whole, will continue to suffer in the areas of unity, spirituality, moral turpitude, and many others areas of concern, until the black man is in his rightful place.
He believes in the accurate delineation of historical and cultural truth, and the proper and appropriate dissemination of that truth to the masses.
Dr. Wallace believes that there is an unprecedented revival on the horizon for black across the world, and he has committed himself to being at the forefront of a movement that will usher in restoration of the black race to a place of royalty and aristocracy.
In founding Rick Wallace Ministries, 100 Men of Purpose, The Odyssey Project (Co-founded and ran with Jason Richardson) and more, Dr. Wallace has committed himself to being at the forefront of this great revival.
Below are just a few of the projects and activities that Bishop Wallace has undertaken:
– He is involved in a number of youth programs; speaking on youth conference panels, working with inner-city youth on several fronts. He has also launched the Black Community Empowerment Initiative which focuses on the holistic education of black youth in the inner city.
– He has founded and now heads 100 Men of Purpose, an organization devoted to leading men back into the rightful positions as heads.
– Dr. Wallace is a dynamic and electrifying speaker who uses a theological, historical, psychological and cultural approach, coupled with practical application. He strongly believes in historical integrity, but warns against religious rigidity (legalism) perpetuated by any group associated with any faith.
– Dr. Wallace is also a creative and talented author. He published his first article in 1985 (The Invisible Father) and has been writing ever since. That original article eventually became the inspiration for his first book: The Invisible Father: Reversing the Curse of a Fatherless Generation. He has also authored 15 other books, such as: Abiding in Abundance, The State of The Union, Renewing Your Mind: The Dynamics of Christian Transformation, When Your House Is Not a Home and The Mis-education of Black Youth in America.
Dr. Wallace also has more than 20 years of experience in the Health, Fitness and Wellness Industry. He currently sits as the Dean of the School for the Ministry of Health and Wellness for A.R.O.H. Theological Seminary and International School of Divinity. He is extremely passionate about believers being good stewards of their bodies. He has authored books and reports such as 10 Essential Elements of Healthy Weight Loss and 10 Spices that Aid in Weight Loss.
Having been reared by his great-grandparents, not knowing his father, and having a very limited relationship with his mother, Dr. Wallace has an immense passion for men living in their designed purpose.
The people at The Odyssey Project invite you to become a part of this great movement of black empowerment.
