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 160 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 December 2018. TN111, A church policies checklist, and TN112, Set my leaders free!, are now available to all without charge.

A new Topics index of all the resources on the site was launched this September and has been extended during November and December. All 162 Articles, Training Notes and Health-checks can now be checked by the topics they cover. Try it out!

Due to be uploaded on 1st February: new Training Notes on website howlers (TN113) and how to prepare a church profile (TN114).

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