Rich "Trigger" Bontrager
One of the unique things about my ministry experiences is that I has been blessed to serve and teach “faith and spirituality” in half-way houses and recovery centers. I am a very passionate about helping equip, coach and encourage "Next Generation Leaders."
Besides my many years of ministry, I have over 20 years as a professional sports announcer. My career has ranged from Talk Show Host, High School Sports, Minnesota Timberwolves, Minnesota Vikings and College Football. Through it all I have seen many exciting things. When I speak, I do so as a story-teller with vivid word pictures and energy. I am a dreamer at heart and believe that no matter the circumstances we face in life, life is still a great adventure and worth living.
When I speak, I speak freely from my own life struggles and overcoming them; such as stuttering, hearing loss, severe fire accident as a child and most recently liver transplant (2017). A liver transplant that had brought my life to a complete stand still, but now I have fully recovered from and is able to live and now enjoy the “great adventure. Through it all I have learned many life lessons and enjoys sharing what he has learned along the road of life.
