Welcome! − Services


I am an independent church consultant and trainer who has spent over 35 years promoting spiritual gifts of administration which God gives to his Church. I describe myself as a champion of 'creative organisation'.

I offer 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 year-plus and go online wherever possible. My diary is full (or I am unavailable) to mid-October 2021. I have limited availability from mid-October to mid-November and more after that. Talk to me if you are interested in anything.

That was the best bit of training I have had for a long time.
