A lot of groups do good work.
But doing good work
isn’t good enough for us.

“Our bottom line is to make listening top-of-mind.”

Values

What we value brings value to your nonprofit.

Serve First

Accomplishing your vision is our highest virtue. We focus on serving you first so that you can better assist the people you serve.

Customize Not Homogenize

Fundraising should not be an assembly line of sameness. When it comes to fundraising, one size doesn’t fit all.

Hand-In-Hand

We consider our clients partners for life. Together, we join hands to bring life and hope to the world’s neediest people.

The Answer is “Yes”

Why would we say “No,” when you’ve said “Yes, I can help you” to so many? Consider us as an extension of your marketing and development family.

Raising Results

Improving your bottom line is top-of-mind. We will revise and devise until outcomes meet and exceed financial objectives.

Giving Back

Brewer Direct puts our money where our mouth is. We support organizations that are making a difference by donating 10% of our income to charities.

LEADERSHIP

Randy Brewer

President/CEO

 

Randy Brewer has spent over half his life in marketing, PR and fundraising for nonprofit organizations. Prior to founding Brewer Direct in April 2004, Randy served as a Senior Vice President at Grizzard Communications Group, where he was directly responsible for many of the company’s nonprofit clients.

 

At Brewer Direct, Randy’s leadership has led to multiple millions of dollars generated and hundreds of thousands of new donors acquired to help nonprofit ministries throughout the United States.

 

An ordained minister with degrees in Education and Ministry, and graduate studies in both Theology and Business Management, he has worked for Focus on the Family, World Vision and at a local newspaper group. Randy also serves on the board of African Enterprise USA, a 50-year-old evangelistic and relief ministry in Africa. Randy also serves as Vice Chairman for African Enterprise USA and is an active member of International Full Gospel Fellowship, which both provide help to the world’s hurting. Most recently, he launched his own philanthropic venture, Randy W. Brewer Foundation, to further Christ’s love through supporting wellness and educations for young people around the world.

 

Randy has authored a new inspirational book, Finding My Voice: A Story of Grace, Hope and Healing. It tells the gripping true story of when he contracted a rare throat cancer. It would require a radical surgery that meant he would lose his speaking voice entirely. Yet through it all, he would discover a new Voice calling. This profound book looks at tragedy turned to triumph. Watch the story behind the book. Buy your copy here.

ROB TAYLOR

Rob’s bio is coming soon.

LAURIE BETH JONES

Laurie Beth Jones is an internationally recognized best-selling author, speaker, coach, and trainer. Her business books, written from a spiritual perspective, have received global recognition for the sound, time-proven principles contained within. As a speaker and trainer, she has been invited to present to presidents of countries and companies, business teams, government and the judicial system, churches and ministries, service organizations, and educators.

 

Her first book, Jesus CEO, Using Ancient Wisdom For Visionary Leadership, was written when she was struck by the notion that Jesus’ leadership approach with his staff (disciples) ran counter to many of the management styles and techniques being employed and popularized. As the owner of a successful marketing company, Laurie became increasingly dismayed to find invaluable human energy and intelligence untapped or underutilized. She made it her goal to help empower people by encouraging them to re-view the divine excellence in themselves and in those they serve.

 

She followed with The Path: Creating Your Mission Statement for Work and for Life. This book, along with Path Experience Workshops led by Laurie Beth, has provided inspiration and practical advice to thousands of individuals through every step of defining and fulfilling a mission… a mission statement that can be created over a weekend rather than months or years.

 

In the book, The Four Elements of Success, Laurie introduces two new approaches to the age-old challenge of working with people. The Path Elements Profile (PEPTM) is an intuitive and powerful communication tool that can successfully be employed by individuals of almost any age in any situation. The Elemental Team Challenge is a diagnostic tool for businesses based on twenty-eight principles, gleaned from hundreds of proven best practices that can help transform a team into a powerful and productive entity.

 

In her most recent release, Jesus, Career Counselor, she defines the big difference between a job, a career, and work. Oftentimes, doing our jobs or chasing after careers is something we grudgingly do. On the other hand, she states, “productive and fruitful work is what God intended for us since the Garden of Eden. She will encourage you in this book to find your best work.

 

Book Titles:

 

  • Jesus CEO
  • The Path
  • Jesus in Blue Jeans
  • Grow Something Besides Old
  • Jesus INC
  • Jesus Entrepreneur
  • Power of Positive Prophecy
  • Teach Your Team to Fish
  • Jesus Life Coach
  • Life Coach Journal
  • Four Elements of Success
  • Personal Notes to Graduates
  • Jesus Career Counselor

 

Laurie Beth was recently named one of the top 30 leaders in the United States by an independent research firm. She has been featured in major media outlets and been invited to speak in all pillars of society, such as business, education, health care, government, faith and service organizations, the mass media and the disenfranchised. A business-development coach and consultant to CEO’s and organizations, Laurie Beth has conducted training or provided leadership products for major companies including Tyson Foods, Purina-Nestle, Neiman Marcus, Pfizer, CitiFinancial and American Express.
