Who We Are


Elizabeth is a mother of two boys and a cooker of all things delicious. She is often the better, smarter half of the podcast and is always the voice of reason in the family. She is a graduate in Human Services from Grace Bible College, a coffee drinker, and a laundry folder. She handles most of the legal stuff for Shirt Off Your Back and manages the office for another family business as well. Somehow, she squeezes in a decent nights sleep every once in a while.


Collin has worked with teens in different capacities for over 10 years. A growing interest in criminal justice and adolescent behavior led him to a master’s degree in forensic psychology. He specializes in goal setting for teens and young adults, and is the founder of Shirt Off Your Back. He hates small talk but finds joy in simple things. He likes his coffee black, his music loud, and has an unhealthy obsession with random, obscure t-shirts.


Mike has his BA in Biblical Studies with an Emphasis on Youth Ministry from Grace Christian University, formerly Grace Bible College. As an ordained pastor through the Grace Gospel Fellowship, he is currently serving as Family Ministries Director at Grace Bible Church of Phoenix. For Shirt Off Your Back, he specializes in Interpersonal Relations and Volunteer Management. He enjoys Arizona sports and leading worship in his local church.


Ed has his MS in Addiction Counseling and is a Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor. He serves Shirt Off Your Back by educating congregations on the DSM criteria for depression; as well as warning signs, symptoms, and coping skills. He enjoys coffee, music, and the Arizona Coyotes hockey team.


Derek, elementary school teacher with an MS in Education Administration, serves Shirt Off Your Back by offering Classroom and Extracurricular Management techniques to leaders and congregations. He enjoys riding dirt bikes, podcasts and coffee.
