Others To Be Announced

Mike Ruffalo started his own business. It’s called Elephant Balloons. It all started as a way for him to pay for the things he wanted. “So I can make more money,” he said. “So I can put some of it into my video games and the rest to college.”  At the tender age of 10, he is what “Shifting to Greatness” is all about Owens’ said.

Bicycling between 50 and 75 miles per day, Owens will cross the western U.S. along the Southern Route stopping at colleges, churches, and events where he has been hosted as well as talking with complete strangers about greatness.

Owens’ goal is to cause people to recognize that we must shift from the pain of the past to the promise of greatness for all Americans. Through Forgiveness empowered by God’s grace we can heal and experience a full and abundant life for ourselves and being a catalyst for others.

Owens begins the first phase of his trek this month starting November 7th  from Las Vegas and ends it over 300 miles later, in Phoenix, Arizona on around November 12 at the first Shift to Greatness Rally.

“The Shift to Greatness theme core message is to move beyond the pain of the past,” Owens said. “For some African-Americans it has been slavery, racial injustice, inequality. For other ethnic groups, and even within the African American community, it has been similar and specific issues of pain.  However, on a personal level, we all have suffered a painful past. Be it divorce, emotional abuse, child abuse or being taken advantage of unfairly at some point in our life. The most difficult part of the pain of the past, is when we fail to forgive ourselves whether or not we realize it.”

Owens said, “My mission is to create a deep desire within the hearts of people to pursue the greatness that God has placed within them and to allow that hope to inspire them to want the same for others.
