Switching career direction to ministry from the corporate world after thirty-five years brought Bruce to a crossroads in his life. How to serve his two passions; Jesus and Christian ethics in business. It’s here that Dr. Hartman believes he had no choice, and he followed the path that God had laid out for him – he returned to school and completed his Master of Divinity degree, graduating in 2013 and earning the Daniel P. Kidder Award for the highest GPA in Pastoral Care. He is not a traditional minister, but his unique blend of strategic acumen,combined with his belief in the Christian principles of integrity, has put him in a position where he can help people thrive in the modern marketplace and in daily life. This has led Bruce to formalize his belief that there is a way to advance Christian values without having to compromise our intended purpose or personal integrity. Simply, we should all “Be the Gospel” in all that we do, including our work lives. His soon to be published 4th book, Jesus is Everything, aims to expand upon his message of helping people use Jesus’ teachings to walk into a brighter future. He lives in North Carolina with his wife Connie. He is an avid hiker and has walked many miles of the Appalachian Trail. He also enjoys spending time with his four daughters.

On May 5th, 2009, Bruce was walking alone late at night and was asked by Jesus to fully turn his life over to Him. After sincerely wrestling with that request for several months, he yielded everything to Him. He left his position as a Fortune 500 executive and embarked on a 7 year journey that has led him into a place of impact and service he could not have imagined.
