Grace Barnes comes to Genysys by knowing and working with Ray Rood while at Azusa Pacific University (APU), So. Cal. Grace has been involved in higher education for forty years, following twenty years on staff for Young Life. At APU, Grace traveled and taught throughout the world for twenty-five years as Program Director for the MA in Leadership degree program called Operation Impact. Grace’s family heritage was in missions which provided rich experience for this work. After a call to Bakke Graduate University in Seattle to be a Professor and then Academic Dean, Grace retired with her husband to Klamath Falls, Oregon. She then became an adjunct faculty member with four universities as well as serving in her local community.
At this point in her life's journey, Ray suggested that Grace become a Strategic Futuring client to vision her future. Grace's experience with Strategic Futuring led to her desire to become a certified Strategic Futuring consultant. She now serves as Genysys' Director of Strategic Futuring Certification. For Grace this role fulfills her love of service through mentoring and serving others. She has authored two books: Servant First: Readings and Reflections on the Practice of Servant Leadership and WILD: Women in Leadership Development. Contact Info: 541-884-6791 or Graceb@bgu.edu.
