About David Riffel

David Riffel is the Founder and Executive Director of www.Mentoring-Warriors.com. Having gone through his warrior years (18-30) essentially without a mentor, God has placed in him a heart for warriors, to come alongside them in various ways as they figure out life. David’s upcoming book, Mentoring Warriors: Coming Alongside Young Men 18-30, outlines principles for mentoring and gives advice for warriors in six key areas of life: self-management, life skills, education/career, relationships, faith, and identity.

David met his wife, Sandy, in Canada, via a matchmaker. They have two warrior-age adult children, both married. David is a partner in an architectural firm. They live in Wichita, Kansas.

"Every now and then a mentoring/warrior rises up among men. A man who understands that there is much at stake and they are willing to put it all on the line to dig in and fight for what is right. David Riffel is that man, and he understands the battle this world is waging against the hearts and minds of young warrior men all over our country. David’s gentle spirit, command of Scripture and love for discipleship has led him into countless moments of helping young men to follow Jesus, regardless of the cost."

“God works in amazing ways on this earth, and I know Mentoring Warriors will be a movement of His hand for men to come alongside other men and show them what someone surrendered to God is supposed to look like. Who I am now is a product of David’s mentorship for over six years and counting. David RIffel has truly put into practice the great commission Jesus gave his disciples in Mathew 28:16-20.”

"Having a website to guide discipleship is monumental. Churches today are plagued by a lack of discipleship. This is a precise method and step by step directions to successful living in Christ. I personally know David and would have to say he is absolutely one of the best disciplers I've ever met."
