The best in leadership teaching, filtered through nearly 3 decades of pastoral ministry…


Navigating the course toward God’s vision for your church is difficult – especially when you don’t have the right leadership to help you on the journey.  I believe that there is a leadership gap in today’s churches and I want to help you do something about that.  Below are many of the options that I can bring to your church to help you find and develop leaders in your church.  I believe that developing leaders is a part of the discipleship process and I am committed to helping you succeed in that endeavor.

No two churches are alike, no two sets of circumstances are identical, and a ‘cookie cutter’ approach to leadership development won’t work.  Instead, you need a customized plan based upon your unique needs and circumstances.    So, we look into the tool box and decide which tools are right for you at this point in the life of your church.  My experience as a pastor for nearly 3 decades brings a unique perspective to leadership training and coaching.  Consider some of the possibilities below and contact me for a free consultation on what the appropriate next steps might be for your church in your setting.

Speaking, Workshops, and Seminars

As a Certified John Maxwell Coach, Trainer and Speaker, I offer customized presentations to fit your individual or church needs and budget such as:

  • “Lunch and Learn” – a 45 minute training, often during lunch, for your church staff
  • Keynote speech for your church sponsored event
  • Half day and full day workshop/seminar – see the flyer at the right for a list of topics/books
  • In-house leadership training
  • Retreats and leadership events
  • District/judicatory keynote speaking events

I will provide effective team communication and structure that is important for forging relationships equipping your team with the proper attitudes to develop leaders within. We will work through goal setting and communication exercises that will bring cohesiveness to your group ultimately increasing productivity due to the positive influences each member will have on the group as a whole.

In addition, I will at your request, incorporate your church’s meeting theme, mission / vision statement or build on your existing training schedule to best fit the needs of your group.

Leadership Game for Church Boards and Staff

Let me help raise your leadership team to new heights! The John Maxwell Leadership Game is fun, engaging and challenges participants to have open discussions about personal values and leadership principles. It is designed to help uncover gaps in team and personal communication, see blind spots, see areas for improvement with your team and to get encouraged! Your team will walk away with new insights into themselves, their team and company leaders.

The Leadership Game is best used with a church board, judicatory board, or pastoral/staff teams.  It is a great way to learn how to function better as a team by identifying strengths and weaknesses, communication styles, and team dynamics.

Mastermind Groups

Think small groups for church leadership teams!  There is synergy of energy, commitment and excitement that participants bring to a mastermind group. My facilitated groups offer a combination of masterminding, peer brainstorming, education, accountability and support in a group setting to sharpen your church and personal skills. By bringing fresh ideas and a different perspective, my masterminds can help you achieve success.  With a broad base of topics to choose from, my mastermind groups are customized to your church and its specific needs.  


My coaching involves the ability to understand you: to think how you think, and understand your perspective. From this benchmark, I will place another perspective on top of yours – stretching and growing you to gently see a more empowering way. As a certified John Maxwell coach, I can see what you are going through now and what is up ahead. Coaching is foreseeing, paving the way, coming alongside you while helping you achieve goals and overcome limiting paradigms.

I offer two levels of coaching support:

Individual Coaching – one on one private and confidential coaching

When I am working with you one-on-one, it is my highest objective to help you reach your purpose, vision and goals by working through John Maxwell’s programs specific to your needs. Together, we will create a strategic, powerful plan for you to gain clarity through a weekly process including, interaction and accountability.

Group Coaching – small setting onsite or via webinar and video technology

When I am working in a group setting, having the entire group’s input in thinking magnifies the richness of the discussions and results in developing solutions that are above and beyond what any individual can create. The cohesive bond that is formed empowers each person to develop the leader within and shine in a safe environment that nurtures the group as a whole. It is an experience unlike any other and follows the same premise as an academic think tank.
