Jim Peters has delivered his unique mix of humor and truth around the world.
The son of a businessman who taught him, "If you love people you will always have a job" .
At 9, Jim was forced to play a musical instrument. "We were Germans and my dad
wanted a polka band!" So he requested a set of drums thinking
'surely his dad would never agree to that.' To his shock, Mr. Peters said 'yes' to the drums.
This launched Jim's career in music as a sought after studio drummer.
He has performed with some of Christian music's greatest artists.
Jim founded GTM, Inc. and as a visionary, he has focused the energies of the group

I'm always impressed with the quality of people who are in our armed forces. They just impress me. George a wounded troops who've we've been working with for almost three years, now back in active duty, and wanting to head back 'down range' said to us, "you guys make us want to get better. Wow and we thought at first we were just, "handing out shirts" but when you're doing what JC tells you to do i't never 'just'... "small doors lead to large rooms" we've been handing out tee shirts for several years and now we're approaching the 10k shirt mark!! Incredble.
The US Military retreat we do each year in Garmish, this year was oooomazing, we hauled 6 of our young leaders - young people who've gone through our 'jedi training academy' and have now launched their own ministries, came with us and totally handled the youth part of the retreat. Each kid got rocked, and the adults were wondering what was happening with the youth, sooooo it spread to them. Cant wait to go back.
The UFC sponsored 12 of our wounded troops and sent them to see fights in Washington DC and Milwaukee Wisconsin. The looks on each soldiers face was a smile about 14 inches across...lol, but we thank the UFC and Tapout for being so helpful in our quest to see wounded troops healed.
Our Thanksgivng is gonna be amazing, - depending when you're reading this...lol, we are hosting 3 wounded troops that we've been working with over the past several years at Bethesda Naval Hosp. Sooo they will spend 10 days hanging out at our house, we're just 'being family' with some wounded dis enfranchized young American Heros....it's perrrfect.
Make it a great life, it's never too late to start!!
