Loves Like a Hurricane: When God Whispers in the Dark
Gene Krcelic is the author of Loves Like a Hurricane: When God Whispers in the Dark, the true story of a Catholic turned agnostic turned Christian through a wild web of odd encounters while running from a hurricane-like God. The journey carries you down many paths while God whispers and shapes a young heart until He kicks the door wide open with a disaster of biblical proportion, changing everything.
Loves Like a Hurricane is a hard hitting, feet to the fire tapestry that will make you laugh, cry and force you to think about how you will respond when God whispers your name. Gene inspires audiences to decide whether they are willing to choose a path of profound purpose and by God's loving grace turn apathy into compassion into action.
Gene especially enjoys and is very effective with college audiences - young adults in prime position to make decisions that will alter the course of their own lives for the benefit of others.
Gene Krcelic serves as president of the Premier Foundation, a global Christian charity committed to fulfilling the mission of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and dedicated to granting money to worthwhile Christian ministries around the world.
The Premier Foundation supports various missionary activities that feed, clothe and shelter the poor as well as grant funds to other charitable activities. The Premier Foundation has granted over $3,000,000 to non-profit ministries and various charities over the past twelve years. Some of those organizations benefiting from the Premier Foundation include: The James Fund, World Vision, Compassion International, Gospel Music Association Foundation, Motor Racing Outreach, the Center for Church Transformation, various churches, over 800 Christian radio stations reaching 46 states, and many more.
Before joining the Premier Foundation in 2009, Gene served as Founder and CEO of OMG SportsEntertainmentMusic, a multi-faceted sponsorship, music, sports, and event management firm with offices in South Carolina, North Carolina and California. He has negotiated contracts with global brands including Coca-Cola, EMI CMG, Nike, Reebok, Land Rover, BMW, Family Christian Bookstores, Black Entertainment Television and the Boys Choir of Harlem.
Gene also served as president of the nonprofit event management firm Greenville Events, Inc. where he managed events and relationships with the ACC Baseball Tournament, First Night, BMW Olympic Torch Run, the Chinese Olympic Federation, and Tour DuPont.

What I love about Gene is that he will always do the heavy lifting. He takes on the tough assignments, the challenging problems, the big issues, and the hard choices. The difference between Gene and other heavy lifters is that he is typically doing the hard stuff to impact other people. Gene is passionate to live life with integrity and purpose. He is willing to find the needle or move the mountain, so that others will benefit. He is vigorous in serving others and ferocious in doing good. Gene is a gamer who looks to lift others up. Lead on, my brother ..."
