I'm Rick Nielsen, President of Blueprint for Life. Thanks for checking out my Web site, and I hope as you browse through the listed information you will become familiar with who I am, and what my work with Blueprint For Life is all about.
I've always wanted to do something that would make a positive difference in people's lives, and Blueprint has provided for me the vehicle to accomplish this very important mission. Using my skills as a professional speaker, magician, juggler, and humorist, I have been speaking and entertaining full time since I founded Blueprint for Life in 1984. My programs find me helping others in a wide variety of venues including work with corporations, schools, churches, Para church organizations, athletic teams, and in prisons. Using my skills as an entertainer, I warm up the audience, build a relationship with them, and open up their hearts to hear a message of hope that will last a lifetime.
One of the most unique aspects of my work has been my involvement with the Bill Glass Champions for Life prison ministry. This amazing prison evangelism outreach has afforded me the opportunity to share my programs and Christian faith in over six hundred prisons around the world over the past two decades. My book, "Doin' Time", describes many of my fantastic experiences, and in 1997, the book won the International Angel Award for excellence in moral media.
Through the various photographs, endorsements, video clips, and other informative pieces on this Web site, I'm hopeful you'll catch the spirit of Blueprint, and discover the impact it has had on people around the world. I would love to be a part of touching lives with your community or organization, so please contact me right away and together we can explore these wonderful possibilities.
