EP8: Walk Through the Door, with Greg Dyke Shift Shift Bloom

    • Personal Journals

About this episode:
Greg Dyke's resume reads like a collage of seemingly unrelated twists and turns -- engineer, pastor, nurse, yak rancher -- but that's only if you're reading it superficially. Spend even a few minutes with Dr. Reverend Dyke and you learn each twist was related to the one that came before, and each turn marked by a deep and abiding relationship with social justice, downward mobility and doing the right thing.
About our guest:
Greg Dyke, owner of Zhi-ba Shin-ga Yak Ranch in Wellington, KY has always been a man on a mission. His unusually varied professional life has taken him from engineering to ministry, from upstate New York to inner city New Orleans. But regardless of the terrain, Greg has remained true to the inner compass that always seems to be urging him on to help make things better for others.
