I Speak.

It’s important to know that a guest speaker can communicate biblical truth while at the same time intersect that truth with real life.  I’m passionate about both.  Whether your need is for a Sunday service, staff meeting, men’s retreat, marriage retreat (with my wife, Sherryl), or a leadership event, I’d love to explore the possibilities.

I Coach.

Pastors and church leaders face unique personal and ministry challenges. As a coach I come alongside a leader to encourage, facilitate self-discovery, and foster emotional, spiritual, and professional growth. I hold an Associate Certified Coach credential with the International Coach Federation and focus my coaching on pastors.

I Consult.

Church leaders need fresh perspective to deal with an ever-changing ministry landscape. I leverage my almost 40 years of pastoral experience and learnings from my six books and the hundreds of articles featured on leading leadership sites to help churches, church boards, and leadership teams maximize ministry effectiveness.
