Welcome to my new series, “Man of Honor”! I plan to alternate this series with my “Entrepreneur of the Month,” “Trailblazer of the Month,” and “Trendsetter of the Month” series. The media is fraught with negative images that might lead viewers to believe that many of the men among us are not worthy of honor! I will continue to counter these stereotypes with positive portrayals.
The featured men of honor will include pastors as well as leaders of other organizations, and I hope that they will inspire you. Pastor Marcus Carruthers is the first “Man of Honor”! Marcus Carruthers is the senior pastor at The Dwelling Place Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Prior to going into ministry full time, he worked at several Fortune 500 companies. He also owned a software company with his wife, Dionne.
Not only is Marcus Carruthers recognized as an awesome pastor, be he is also recognized throughout his community as an amazing leader. He has been listed on the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal’s “State of Arkansas 40 under 40” list, and he was named the “Washington County Volunteer of the Year.” I appreciate Pastor Marcus Carruthers for accepting my invitation to be the “Man of Honor” for October 2013.
Next week, you will learn who has contributed to Pastor Carruthers’s success. What do you think of this series? Please comment.
