HITOP Life is about addressing the Essential Challenges Men Face with Truth & Mindset. Each man is encouraged and empowered to:

  • See what you are Accomplishing

  • Be empowered to respond efficiently to the Challenges you face.

  • Understand the Truth you hear.

  • Set personal, measurable, and practical Steps to Succeed for the week ahead.

These “ACTS” provide a blueprint into how best to LOVE Unconditionally (show others they are valued), LISTEN Intentionally (show others they are heard), and LEAD a Bold and Triumphant life (show others they are empowered). 



What to ExpecT

A mastermind is a gathering of like-minded people desiring to grow, be encouraged, and support one another. Each week the HITOP Mastermind meets for 2 hours to move past the surface of everyday conversations and develop life-long relationships by cultivating conversation together.

What’s Included

  • The Brother's Keeper Journal (co-authored with Brian Rath).

  • 21-7-3-1 - A proven methodology to drive the necessary engagement needed for experiencing transformation. Read more.

  • Take Back Your Time Manager - A comprehensive tool used to help you understand where your time is going and where you want to be investing it. This mindset moment has helped change relationships by setting expectations, reducing stress, and driving transformational change. Read more.

  • Weekly check-in - Follow-up is critical to transformational change. It’s not enough to meet and leave each other to the week. The Brother’s Keeper Journal is designed to engage conversation throughout the week, something not frequently performed by men, but incredibly powerful when practiced. God gave me a Parakaleo “Spirit of Encouragement” personality. I hope to teach you to the power of this gift and the tools used to ensure you succeed.

Areas of Focus

  • Empowerment & Follow-up

  • Encouragement and Accountability

  • Relational Challenges

  • Marriage and Parenting

  • Spiritual Growth

  • Clarity and Direction

  • Biblically measured truth and teachings.

  • Ability to grow as a Man of Humility, Integrity, Truth, Obedience, and Prayer.

  • Empowerment to feel effective and on mark by aligning with Gods will for his life.

  • Ability to make progress and see substantial results.

  • Tools to stop falling back into past patterns.

  • An abundant mindset.

I knew Chris for years as a friend and fellow brother in Christ before he started coaching me. But prior to that, he’d been there many times to listen to me, guide me, and even redirect me in my personal life. But the biggest thing he has coached me on a couple times has been my responsibilities at work. He sketched (literally on a back of a napkin) a way for me to visualize my workload and how it had changed (increased) over time to the point of being overwhelming. From that, I created my own visuals to show my bosses how responsibilities had been added and added. By the time I needed to do this a second time, Chris had developed the concept into the Take Your Time Back process. Even if my bosses hadn’t listened, the process was powerful in helping me understand my feelings. Chris has also coached me on dozens of different things relating to work, marriage, family, etc. Although first and foremost a friend, Chris is an amazing life coach.

HITOP Life helps Christian men develop stronger relationships with their wife, children and any area in their life that’s most important to them. Living in a chaotic world with mixed signals and little time to have deep focused thinking about how to handle the problems we face with the people who mean the most to us leaves us in a passive reactive mode that results in long term damaging effects.

HITOP Life provides the tools and guidance for us to know exactly what we need to do to be a better leader for our family and our work life as a strong Christian man.

If you’re having arguments with your wife, feeling distant with your children and unsure what to do, you need to seek answers from God’s wisdom and HITOP Life. Chris provided a way for me to get to work quickly. Life’s too short to be poking around in the dark with your life. Put the light on it!
I have known Chris for over 3 years. During that time I have gotten together with Chris regularly, usually weekly. I first got to know Chris when he prayed for me at church. I have been blessed that God put Chris in my life to help and encourage me. Chris loves God and he loves people. He constantly makes himself available to meet the needs of others. Chris is one of the kindest listeners that I have ever met.

I just wanted to share that your passion for Jesus is contagious! I love watching men take the lead in our families and in our workplace to serve Him! Because of you I watch Aaron Walkers Live from the Greenway podcast on a regular basis and bought his book on Amazon. Keep doing what you are doing to encourage people to reach out into the lives of those that they encounter.
