Love. Listen. Trust. Lead. Collaborate.

The practice of relationship-centered leadership offers invitations grounded in holy listening that develop trust and make collaboration the natural outcome. I recognize and encourage opportunities that lead to active mission grounded in healthy spiritual community.

The blessing of the future is a gift from our past experience mediated by our present reflection. Engaging best practices that lead to listening to God and each other form the basis for deepening faith, embracing hope, and sharing love. Consequently, I teach, influenced by the Rule of St. Benedict, “We belong to one another. Together, with God’s help, we can make one another stronger.”

You are invited to explore this website and determine if my 29 years of ordained leadership experience can be of service in the form of workshops, coaching, 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.
