Inspired by Bob Buford’s Halftime, Don Ankenbrandt left the business world and joined Young Life for a total of 17 years, where he served in a variety of roles. In 2007 he founded Alliance Ministries with the purpose of coaching men and women to discover their unique calling. He created and co-authored the “210 Project” a unique online coaching process for anyone to explore their purpose and calling. Having worked for the last 15 years with successful businessmen and women his mission has shifted to Philanthropy and connecting people to ministries that fit them.
In March he joined One Ascent Wealth as the Director of Stewardship and Strategic Engagement, assisting families and Advisors in their philanthropic endeavors. He has travelled the world extensively coming along side hundreds of different ministries and wishes to use this knowledge to connect people to what God is doing around the world.
