Welcome! − Services


I am an independent church consultant and trainer who has spent over 40 years promoting spiritual gifts of administration which God gives to his Church. I describe myself as a champion of 'creative organisation'.

I offer church operations services to:

  • Clergy/Pastors and other church workers
  • Lay leaders and Church Administrators
  • Boards and staffs of mission agencies...
  1. Advice through consultancy and one-to-one work
  2. Training through workshops and writing
  3. Support through web resources and networks

These pages explain these three areas, then provide examples of consultancy and one-to-one assignments and training and writing topics.

There is also a page explaining my charges. Support work is provided without charge.

Current availability

I now have little availability before the summer this year, and am looking for short assignments for the autumn. Be aware that I am now working reduced hours and aiming to retire from consultancy and training in December 2024.
