Ministry Coaching

Beginning in the 1980’s, my work has centered for 30 years on foundations work – helping to establish or re-establish the roots of churches. Over the last 20 years, among my most rewarding ministry experiences have been a spectrum of consultancy assignments. This work has ranged from the delivery of one-to-one coaching, to church consultations, to leading churches through community-healing, re-profiling or intentional interim processes. 

This page relates to my previous work in foundations and consultancy and to my continuing work as a ministry coach.
