Consultant. Connector. Coach.


After serving in campus ministry for five years and being a new church start pastor for three, I believe I have a unique skill set that can help pastors and churches.


I’ve worked closely with nonprofit professionals and organizations over the years, including serving as an officer on a nonprofit board of directors.


Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to work wth pastors, nonprofit professionals, students, creatives, entrepreneurs, and more in 1-1 and group coaching settings.


Occasionally I share my thoughts about leadership, organizations, religion, culture, and current events. Follow my blog at for all my latest content.


I have a passion for being a connector who coaches professional and volunteer leaders and teams around innovative ideas, projects, events, and partnerships.


My first book examines the places in the world where people experience spiritual depth and meaning. Many of those places happen to be outside of churches and organized religion.
