Marty Miller

GGC Men’s Ministry Coordinator

Blueprint for Men President

Marty is a lover of God, a lover of nature, and a lover of people. These three loves have defined all that Marty has pursued in life.  Marty has a bachelor’s degree in biology and master’s degree in outdoor education and through the years has served as principal, multi-grade teacher, middle school science teacher, high school science teacher, nature center director, and university outdoor leadership professor.

After nearly 30 years in education Marty transitioned into full-time ministry by creating Blueprint for Men.  Through retreats, small group support, leadership training, and curriculum development, Marty is helping men to step up and become the men God designed them to be!  Since its inception, the Blueprint for Men network has been instrumental in starting scores of men’s discipleship groups around the world.  For more information about this ministry visit www.blueprintformen.org.

Last, but not least, Marty and his treasured wife Gale, live in Collegedale, Tennessee where they are both involved in full-time ministry. They are the proud parents of two adult children and four grand-children. Life is good!
