Character That Counts
CTC was born out of a passion by Rod Handley to communicate the power of accountability in developing godly character in men's and women's lives. This passion was the motivating force behind Rod's step of faith in creating the organization in July 2000. CTC provides resources/books for individual growth and motivates and inspires people through oral presentations and seminars. Based in Lee's Summit, Missouri, CTC is reaching the Greater Kansas City area and nation. Both secular and Christian audiences are attracted to Rod's presentations and it provides an excellent opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Many people have grown spiritually as a result of the CTC ministry.
