Empowering Black America through Holistic Engagement

Dr. Rick Wallace3

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 accurately delineating historical and cultural truth and properly and appropriately disseminating that truth to the masses.

Dr. Wallace believes there is an unprecedented revival on the horizon for black across the world, and he has committed himself to be at the forefront of a movement that will usher in restoring 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), Dr. Wallace has committed himself to be 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 several youth programs, speaking on youth conference panels, and 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 their 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 30 years of experience in the Health, Fitness, and Wellness Industries. 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 exceptionally 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.

    Thank you, Dr. Wallace, for your work with Black male youth. I wish that you had satellite program out west in Denver, CO. Is there any way that young men from other geographical locations can participate? Since I am a single mother, I see the value in all that you do and would love to have my child participate. Just curious and wanted to congratulate you on your work.
    Thank you.

    Hello Netta,

    Thank you for sharing your concerns. We are currently developing the capacity to scale out the program so that it has a national impact. The problem is with the resources. I literally fund over 98 percent all of the work I do in the Black community. There is a lot of fanfare for my programs but very little support. The shot answer is that we are working to make the program available to everyone. I already have the design in place.

    Additionally, I am working to acquire property where we can literally bring hardcore kids from across the country and insert them into an environment in which they can effective experience a change in the way they view themselves. Again the challenge is resources and support from the Black community across the country. This program will be for those whose parents and guardian see them as being at a high risk for death and incarceration.

    One thing that have been doing in the interim is referring parents to some of my counseling and reconditioning packages at my company The Visionetics Institute (http://www.rickwallacephd.link and look under the programs and courses tab). While there is a cost to this programs, the parents who have chosen this route have been very ecstatic about the results their children got by working directly with me.

    You can also get your family, friends and community to support the program, which will help bring it to Denver sooner. They can support the program by clicking here ==> https://www.gofundme.com/black-men-lead

    Whatever you do, you should reach out to speak with me at least once.

    You can email me at CEO@theodysseyproject21.com

    Best regards,

    Rick Wallace

    Hello Dr.Wallace
    I tune in to you on a regular basis if you post it I tune in. With that being said I respect and appreciate the work you do in our community. I am a mother of two young men one 23 and he attends HCC and the other 15 attends Bellaire High School in Houston Texas. I would appreciate your advice on how to handle a situation . My high schooler just received his report card and he had a 37 in history. Prior to getting his report card his progress report is when we both saw a zero for an a assignment ,which he did turn in to his teacher. I immediately attempted to reach his Teacher to get a better understanding. It took a couple of days for his teacher to get back in touch after I got to the AP by that time report cards had been issued. I meet with the history on 10/14/19 . I would like your advice on how to approach the situation or if he doesn’t own up to not putting my sons grade in. My son is an athlete and a good student he is diligent when it comes to his class work. I am concerned of course with his GPA he plans to attend college. I don’t want him to have to settle because of his GPA. Thank you for any words of wisdom

    Hello Sha’lona,

    First I want to apologize for missing this comment (question). I try to check all forms of communication, but as you can imagine, it can be challenging — considering the number of outlets we have going currently. I will reach out to you personally to see if you still need my input.

    Once again, I apologize for the delay.
