Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray

Inspirational Adventurers, Lifelong Friends and Achievers of the Impossible

Born a little over 36 hours apart, Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray have been blessed with a lifelong friendship. Their lives have been intertwined for 40 years and have brought them many adventures—most notably, their recent 500-mile trek across the vast terrain of Spain. Justin, who lives with a progressive neuromuscular disease and manages life from a power wheelchair, had the urge to tackle the Camino de Santiago or Way of St. James. When asked, Patrick responded with “I’ll push you!”

 
Leadership: Leading Through Vulnerability

Justin and Patrick draw on their work and life experiences, delving into what they believe is the most important attribute of an effective leader: vulnerability. Learn how being vulnerable aided them on their 500 mile journey through Spain and how it can bring strength to your team or business, create loyalty within your workforce, and can generate greatness where stagnancy once prevailed.

The Power of Community: The Importance of Community in Creating Successful Lives

With the increase in technology, our societies have become increasingly socially isolated. Join Justin and Patrick as they share stories and observations on the impact healthy relationships lead to community, and how a healthy community can take you places you never thought possible.

Pushing Beyond Limitations: Limitations Should Never Define You

We live in a society that is quick to point out the limitations individuals possess. But what if limits did not define an individual? What if there was a way to push beyond limitations. Justin and Patrick teach and share how they have defied perceived limitations and achieved what many said was impossible.

Faith in Action: Relying on What You Cannot See

Many thought they were foolish for attempting to walk 500 miles along the Camino de Santiago with Justin living life from a wheelchair. Some even told them they couldn’t accomplish it. For Justin and Patrick, the trek was something they had to do. Knowing full well that they could not be successful on their own, they set out with one wheelchair and two backpacks. Their faith was rewarded as they navigated the vast terrain of Spain, and they continue to take each step of life in faith. Join them as they explore moving from a posture of fear to standing triumphant in faith.

Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray live by the mantras “Life is not defined by its limitations, it is defined by what is accomplished in spite of those limitations” and “It’s only impossible because we haven’t done it yet.” Though Justin has very limited use of his arms or legs, his insatiable desire to live life and his willingness to be vulnerable have taken him places few dream of. Patrick’s servant heart and fierce determination combined with Justin’s limitless mindset make for a duo that can empower others to move beyond their limitations, aspire to greatness, and achieve the impossible.
