PAUL ANTHONY WALLIS

dark green (3) PERSONAL COACH & MINISTRY CONSULTANT

CAREER SUMMARY

Since 1985 my work in the UK and Australia has centred on foundations – in particular helping to establish or re-establish the roots of churches. In the last 20 years this work has ranged from the delivery of one-to-one coaching, to church consultations as an Archdeacon, to leading churches through community-healing, re-profiling and intentional interim processes.

A continual parallel track in my work has been that of theological and workplace training, specialising in Hermeneutics and the History of Christian Thought, serving on ministry boards, and leading groups on retreat. As a teacher and communicator my media have been platform, print (with 10 books/collaborations in print) radio and website. Strongly influenced by 24 years in varying degrees of intentional community my ecclesial settings have ranged from grassroots, neo-monastic to high church; Anglican, Pentecostal, Vineyard and non-Aligned – all the while rooted in the faith of the undivided Church.
