CAREER SUMMARY

Beginning in 1985 my work centred on faith-community foundations –  informed by 24 years of living in varying degrees of intentional community. It has included:

  • Executing church consultations and appointment processes as an Archdeacon
  • 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
  • Diverse settings, ranging through Anglican, Pentecostal, Vineyard, non-Aligned, Grassroots and Neo-Monastic

As a theological Educator, I have lectured in Biblical 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, pulpit and print (with 10 books/collaborations in print) radio and website.
