General Manager of Tacos 4 Life Fayetteville | Class of 2010
While writing a paper in Mrs. Garrison'?s 10th grade English class, Justin explored his heart and determined that his future would one day involve feeding hungry children. During his Junior year, he participated in a global mission experience trip to Honduras where God further planted the seed and gave him a love and passion for the people of Honduras.
Upon graduating from Shiloh in 2010, Justin attended Ouachita Baptist Univeristy in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. While there, he majored in Business Management and Finance and became actively involved in the OBU chapter of Enactus, a national organization dedicated to changing the world through business. He again traveled to Honduras where he discovered a desperate need for income at Rancho Ebenezer, a World Gospel Outreach children?s center. Through a partnership with a Rwandan coffee producer, Dr. Jack?'s custom Rwandan coffee blend was born and distributed at the Ouachita university coffeehouse, online and at several churches and organizations across Arkansas. Proceeds from the coffee sales continue to care for the children at Rancho Ebenezer.
Justin?s story doesn?t stop there. After graduating from OBU, Justin took a position at a local business corporation, but didn't feel a peace about a long term career there. God would not quit pursuing him. His desire to feed the hungry burned deeper than ever. Justin began seeking out businesses with similar goals in mind and within a short amount of time, he began working with Tacos 4 Life managing their Conway store. Just this month, Justin and his wife Kristin opened Tacos 4 Life in Fayetteville. For every meal that?s bought, a meal is provided to hungry children in Honduras. The seed that God planted during Justin?s time at Shiloh is now blooming and impacting the world one meal at a time.
