You are invited to explore this website and determine if my 30 years of ordained leadership experience can be of service in the form of workshops, consulting, and guiding transitions (both personal and corporate). 2019 will be a year of discovery for me as I work as a member of the faculty of the Interim Ministry Network, serve as supply clergy, and develop my thinking concerning the Enneagram and self-reflective practice.

Over the next few months my websites and information will eventually coalesce under By the fall I hope to have in place a podcast entitled “Of Use.” My goal is to invite two guests per podcast from the various ministry relationships I have developed over thirty years to discuss questions such as: “What was ‘of use’ that you learned in seminary?” “What became ‘of use’ that you learned as you engaged ordained ministry?” How are you ‘of use’ and in harmony with the principles that guide your vocation?”
I would very interested to learn who might want to participate in the podcast. Your insight into developing this discussion tool will help the underlying value of teaching those in pastoral ministry how to be on the dance floor while observing the action from the balcony.
