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 have obviously had to reconfigure much of my work over the past two years and go online wherever possible but I am currently working and travelling normally. I have limited availability until the end of September but more availability from late October onwards. Please talk to me if you are interested in any 2022 dates.

The training event was superb … I and others were buzzing with what you were sharing.
