As a priest, my hope and ambition to lead, shepherd, and care for those in my orbit is incredibly important to me. I am compelled to encourage, coach, & develop clergy, artists, prophets, and poets. Art enables space for inspiration, healing, and hope where mere words fall short in a culture ripe with tension and division.
Church staff care has been a complement to ministry for years. We need this desperately. I would be honored to spend time with those in the middle of one of the most difficult lifestyles within the most turbulent of cultures.
Artists, prophets, and poets yield an influence that must be honed, cultivated, and nourished. An environment of enablement, encouragement, and formation is the proper type of soil rich with luminous nourishment. This nutrition propels the most inspired creativity in conveying, illuminating, and revealing the Creator.
I also speak regularly on topics like:
- Sacred environments
- Spiritual formation and liturgy
- Cultivating healthy volunteer cultures
- Social and cultural impact of art, spirituality, movements, and initiatives
- Communication: Music, Message, and Collaboration
- How our contemplative need for spiritual centeredness, peace, and creative energy effects everything
- Worship leaders should and can be illuminators of Scripture, not simply musicians.
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 further education, research, and experiences continue to build and grow resources, connections, and insight. Expect depth, encouragement, and a bit of humor with a conversational / relational delivery. I may not be wearing my collar, but I am a priest nonetheless.
Flexibility: I will prepare to provide custom content to your specific event within our agreement and my wheelhouse.
Simplicity: We have worked hard to simplify efforts. The agreements, 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.
