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 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 Training Notes index page in the Resources section has new material for August 2019. TN116, Global mission giving, and TN117, Building project preparations, are now available to all without charge.

Coming on 1st October: a new Article on management in churches, and new Training Notes on the purposes (or lack of them) for church business meetings. 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.
