Leadership Guide Services for Churches:
Tools for congregational development
For the past 15 years, I’ve worked with churches to assist them in addressing a wide range of opportunities and challenges. The following materials provide a basic understanding of who I am, theway I understand the functioning of congregations, and the services that I provide. The following toolsare conversation guides that I developed to enhance communication. I conduct planning process,leadership and spirituality retreats, and provide coaching services to pastors and leadership teams.

The Circle of Impact:
Leaders of churches and other organizations operate in the threedimensions of leadership – Ideas, Relationships and the Social & Organizational Structures. This toolis used to facilitate a conversation about the church’s Mission or Purpose, its Values and a Visionfor the future. The purpose is to build awareness, clarity and a way to integrate the threedimensions for impact.
