In 1984, Bob and Linda Buford made a huge commitment to support the Halftime Institute and Leadership Network for 30 years. They have faithfully completed that commitment this year.

In anticipation of his substantial financial support ending in 2014, Bob and the Halftime Institute Board of Directors gave us a three-year runway to change our revenue model to become self-sustaining from new sources by 2015.  During these past three years, we have worked hard and have been blessed enormously in transitioning from dominant support from a few to a combination of fee-based revenue and strategic charitable investments by a far broader field of wonderful friends.

We are closing out 2014 with record numbers in terms of Halftimer participation in our Members Program and soon to be Fellows Program service offerings.  We have taken the Halftime Institute on the road to several cities and are exploring strategic relationships to rapidly expand our ability to bring the transformative Halftime message to our high potential customer.

We know through long experience that an equipped and released Halftimer has huge potential for Kingdom impact. Thanks to the enormous generosity of Bob and Linda Buford and their faithful leadership over these past three decades, we are now positioned with great expectations for 2015 and beyond.  We are offering substantially increased opportunity for investment and partnership in a ministry which we believe can truly change lives and communities all over the world.

We invite you to keep your eyes and hearts on the Lord………..and on the Halftime Institute as we move into the New Year and beyond.  It is a great honor to serve you.

Lloyd Reeb
Lloyd Reeb is a successful real estate developer and retirement housing owner who made a mid-life transition, looking for greater meaning, joy and impact in his second half. To his surprise he discovered that he was not alone in this journey and that many talented leaders are longing for midlife renewal.

Lloyd has had the privilege of investing 20 years helping leaders plan their second half. He helped launch the Halftime Institute, a global team that teach, coach and connect successful men and women in pursuit of significance.

In Lloyd’s words, “When all you've done or own seems to matter less …and your heart craves more meaning, joy and balance...when something triggers in your mind that you're entering your second half of life and you're unsure what your calling is for the next season... you’re in Halftime.”

Lloyd has taken the Halftime message around the world: speaking, teaching and coaching individuals through the journey. As a result, he understands the issues that surround your Halftime in a deep and practical way.

He is the author of From Success to Significance: When the Pursuit of Success Isn’t Enough, which is a road map for this mid-life transition. His book The Second Half: Real stories, Real adventures, Real Significance provides compelling evidence that your second half could be the most creative and productive season of your life.

Lloyd and his wife, Linda, have written the book  Halftime for Couples. His latest e-book is Finally Connected: Deep, Rewarding Relationships in your Second Half.

Lloyd and Linda live on Lake Norman in North Carolina. They have three adult children - 2 daughters and 1 son - plus a daughter-in-law, son-in-law, and 1 granddaughter.
