What is This?

The Influencer Inner Circle was started in January of 2019 by Jeff Bethke and Craig Gross. The purpose of the group is to go far together! A lot of people have enormous impact online but their neighbors have a hard time understanding what you really do. We wanted to create a room where you are understood. A room with a group of people who can share secrets, build relationships, learn new things, listen to experts, and create lifelong connections.

MEET THE HOSTS

We are Jeff & Alyssa Bethke. We have three kids, Kinsley, Lucy  Kannon, and a dog named Aslan. We live in Maui, and we like to create things on the internet. We consider it an immense privilege that people care to listen or read what we have to say. If we could sum up our mission on the internet it'd be to encourage men, women and families through online experiences and creative resources that are practical, fun and help each person on their journey of following Jesus.
