As a priest, my hope and ambition to lead, shepherd, and care for those in my orbit is important to me. I am compelled to encourage & develop clergy, artists, prophets, and poets.

Artists, prophets, and poets yield an influence that must be honed, cultivated, and nourished. The same goes for your staff care. Utilizing the insight of the Enneagram and the posture of contemplative spiritual practices, we need to invest into our holistic health and well being.

I am available for a limited amount of Direction & Consulting appointments. I can do these via Skype, phone, or in-person.

I have experience and insight to advise you or your team in the following subject areas:

-Church / Organizational Staff Care

-Personal / Collective Direction

-Enneagram Personality Assessment and Implementation

I also speak regularly on topics like:

  • Learning To Be (my book)

  • Spiritual formation

  • Scripture (Lectionary based or topical exegesis)

  • Contemplative life, practices, & postures

  • Anglican Spirituality

  • Deconstructing & Reconstructing faith

What to expect if you work with me:

Preparation: I will do my homework in addition to the details you give me for your event. My education, research, and experience continue to build and grow resources and insight. Expect depth, encouragement, and a bit of humor with a relational delivery.

Flexibility: I will prepare to provide custom content to your specific event within our agreement.

Simplicity: The agreement, fees, and arrangements are simple and customized to assist you.

Partnership: I consider any form of booking, a partnership. Once events are confirmed, you can consider me on your team. I will promote on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) as well as e-mail communications if this is helpful.
