CAREER SUMMARY

Beginning in 1985 my work centred on faith-community foundations –  informed by 24 years of living in varying degrees of intentional community. As a Researcher and Educator, I have trained pastors in Hermeneutics (the principles of interpretation of texts) and the History of Christian Thought. I have served on a number of boards of directors, and have led many groups on retreats, workshopping the tools of the great mystics. My media as a Communicator have been:

  • Platform Speaking
  • Broadcasting Radio and Podcasts – as Guest and Host
  • Books – with 11 books / collaborations in print and  1 scheduled for 2021
  • Website

My work as a Ministry Companion in community foundations has included:

  • Executing Consultations and Appointment Processes as an Archdeacon for the Anglican Church in Australia
  • Leading 1-2 year community-healing/re-profiling processes as Intentional Interim
  • Providing one-to-one mentoring as a Personal Coach
  • Planting churches from scratch as a Pioneer
  • Occupying diverse settings, Anglican, Pentecostal, Vineyard, non-Aligned, Grassroots and Neo-Monastic
