One kind act changed my life.
Now I help others
use micro-actions of kindness wherever they work.
I'm honored to be associated with people who are having an impact, making a difference, and leaving the world better than they found it.

Need a transitional leader?
Every church eventually needs an interim pastor, a transitional leader. There are many interim pastors out there.
I have twenty years’ experience in large churches of 1,000 or more. For ten years I was the executive pastor, managing the largest Presbyterian church in San Diego.
My Doctorate from Fuller Seminary focused on addressing church challenges before they become a public conflict.
I’m old enough to have the respect of most members of your congregation and, I’m young enough to have the energy and insight to keep and grow the next generation.
I have experience in managing conflict, senior leadership management, staff development, tactical and strategic planning, problem-solving, leading change, and fundraising.
I preach most weeks, speak at conferences and retreats, and lead seminars.
I believe in having a home base, a day job that keeps me active in the activities I coach and mentor. Your church may be my next home base.
Need a mentor or coach?
Many people need a mentor/guide more than an expert.
I work with regular working people who have a passion, a dream, or want to have one.
I coach them in finding personal clarity and direction. Then I help them take their next steps, whether that means something at work, self-publishing, blogging, public speaking.
I’m no expert but I have done them all. There are plenty of experts we can find together. Let me help you decide what you need and encourage you to get it.
Need help with:
Staff who don’t like conflict
Leadership teams who exhibit all of Patrick Lencioni’s five dysfunctions of a team
Performance Improvement plans that work
Downsizing a shrinking budget
Managing challenging decisions through your elder or non-profit board
I’ve done them all.
I’m ready to help when you are ready to be helped.
