Meet Henry

As a pastor, professor, and author, I have long straddled two worlds—the church and academia. Some say it’s a collision of worlds. However, it’s in that overlap I am most comfortable and fully present. Something magical happens when that space is occupied.

That’s why it is my mission to help individuals from all walks of life and organizations of all sizes rise to their full potential—through corporate coaching and speaking engagements. (You can get a feel for the types of topics I like to focus on, by perusing my past speaking engagements.)

Many people spend their lives pursuing the wrong calling. In Hebrew, the word is “tov.” It’s translated into English as “good,” but it extends way beyond the Western concept. It means things are working the way they were created to. When we step into our essence, we create things of beauty. Each and every one of us has this potential for creativity. Often we need help tapping into it.

That’s where I come into play. My work focuses on how individuals and groups create spaces for their tov to flourish organically. In my work, I invest in people and organizations to bring tov to fruition. I provide you with the tools, teach you how to do it, and hold you accountable. 

Let’s connect and I’ll show you how change can start from within. It’s time to get results .

MORE THAN A STORY

FIRST BOOK BY DANI TIETJEN AND HENRY GRAF

Life is all about the story. Her story. His story. Their story. Our story. Everybody has a story, but sometimes a story becomes more. Stories that transcend geography and echo through eternity take on other names. Grimms’ were called fairy tales, Aesop had fables, and what Jesus told bears the name parable.
How does a story become more than a story? Is it something for only the smartest, or strongest, or purest of heart? Not at all. The depth and the beauty is in every story, even those often overlooked. They are found by those who have had a broken heart or leapt for joy, but still come to the table to discover the depth and power in even the ordinary stories happening to everyday people.

In More Than A Story, Dani and Henry have done exactly that, and they want to invite you to join the conversation.

Support Compassion International

I believe wholeheartedly in the mission of Compassion International, as I sponsor a child through this organization. Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Founded by the Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean War orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training.

Today, Compassion helps more than 1.5 million children in 26 countries.
