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.
