Welcome to my website, whether you are on a PC, tablet or phone. I am a church consultant and trainer who champions the ministry of creative organisation.

I seek to resource and encourage Christian leaders, managers, trustees, planners, communicators and administrators. I am passionate about helping the Church to become effective for Christ in all it seeks to be and do.

This site explains:

  • the professional services I provide to churches and mission agencies
  • the over 170 free resources on creative church organisation you can print or download
  • the network that I recommend all Church Administrators join (UCAN)
  • the vision that I pray for and work towards.

On this site you can contact me or come on to my resources mailing list.

Within this welcome section you will also find:


The Articles index page in the resources section has a new material for October 2019. See A46, Redefining 'management'. The Training Notes index page also in the Resources section has the new Why, exactly, are we meeting? There is also new material in the Health-checks index page. These and all other resources are available to all without charge.

Come on to my Resources e-letter list to be told as soon as new items are added to the Resources section of this website.

For latest developments, see the News page.

Other aspects of this site and the resources it holds are updated every few days.
