Focused Living's Staff Team


Dr. Perry Bowers

Dr. Perry Bowers

Founder and President

Perry and his beautiful bride, Janet, have been married since 1975 and live in Columbia, SC. They have two married daughters both married to awesome son-in-laws, and 6 beautiful grandchildren. He received his undergraduate degree from University of Maryland ('go Terps!), his Masters from Western Baptist Seminary, a Doctorate of ministry from Columbia International University, and is an ordained PCA (Presbyterian Church of America) pastor. He is addicted to mountain biking, an aging animal in his kyak, loves reading, and on occasion you will find him trying to shoot his IQ on the front nine. He is a hopeless romantic, hand holding hugging husband, and a certifiably warped 'Far Side' freak.


Rev. David Andes

Rev. David Andes

Ministry Associate

David came on staff with FLM in 1998. He and Katherine married in 1990 and live in Irmo, SC with their two sons. David grew up in both Philadelphia and Northern Wisconsin. He received his undergraduate degree from Bucknell University and his MDiv from Columbia International University. He has a background in tennis teaching and utility cost analysis. He loves riding his tandem bike, coaching Special Olympic tennis, canoeing, watching historical documentaries, walking the family dog, and sitting on the back deck early summer mornings.


Rev. German Wright

Pastor German Wright

German has been married to the lovely Sandra Wright since 1987 and live in Columbia, SC. Their son, Caleb is a recent graduate of Liberty University. German did his undergraduate studies in Business Marketing and Management at the University of South Carolina (go Cocks!). In 1994 German became an ordained pastor and serves as senior Pastor of Daily Living Ministries Christian Fellowship in Cayce, SC. He has a passion for helping people and serving the people of God wholeheartedly and unselfishly, a trait instilled in him at a very young age, as the middle child of a family of eleven! In his own household the word "together" is key to doing anything. When not ministering or focusing on his family, he enjoys playing the trumpet.


Karl Reed

Karl is the newest addition to the FLM staff, joining the team in 2019. He has been married to his incredible wife Jessica since 2004 and they live with their 5 children in Columbia, SC. Karl grew up in rural West Michigan but moved to South Carolina to complete his undergraduate degree in Theology at Columbia International University. He enjoys anything athletic and competitive, from basketball to Bocce ball, from ultimate frisbee to a rousing game of Spades (because no one in the south knows how to play Euchre). He also hosts a bi-weekly Texas Holdem poker game that is alive with laughter and rowdiness. Family is everything to Karl. He loves spending his time whooping up on his kids playing basketball in the driveway, wrestling with all the kiddos on the floor, or getting as far away from them as possible to have a quiet date night with his beautiful bride.
