In 2005, Chuck Bryant’s small business in Modesto had grown by almost a quarter of a billion dollars in annual sales. But Chuck knew there was more to his life’s purpose.
After a meeting with former Pinnacle Forum CEO, Ralph Palmen, and a small group of men recommended by Chuck’s pastor, everything changed. They began Pinnacle Forum Modesto, gathering, realizing they had bought the lie that you could never accumulate enough. In 2006 Bryant felt led to sell his company.
Chuck’s hometown was drastically headed downhill morally, economically and financially. Pinnacle Forum Modesto stepped in, applying its values, teachings and influence, to help work toward a transformation of the city.
They helped to create after school programs and a summer school staffed with loving volunteers; a love some children never knew, opening the door for similar Partnerships in other local elementary schools.

They created battered women havens and local centers for women with addictions;
‘Love Modesto’ which sponsors the matching up of thousands of volunteers to hundreds of local needs, birthed ‘Love events’ in over 25 California cities, gaining national recognition.
