As a ministry coach I will help your team focus on the right things, accomplish your goals, and break through growth barriers. I also provide leadership & productivity coaching to individuals as needed.
I offer leadership & practical ministry workshops for ministries in a wide variety of topics. My communication style is both relaxed and practical. I’m also available to speak during weekend church services.
I specialize in asking questions which will stimulate strategic & creative thinking. This will almost always lead to new ideas and solutions to problems & bottlenecks. Check out my blog for more great content!
