I am currently on a programme of succession planning to ensure there are others to take over from me in championing creative church organisation.
October 2017 marked a major point in this process when I handed over the running of the UK Church Administrator Network to a new team. This means that I can now devote more time to consultancy, training and writing.
I believe that UCAN may eventually take over much of my consultancy and training too. The Directors have the same vision for creative church organisation as I do.
But for 2019-2020 my key aim is to make my printed output in the Resources section of this website more widely known and used while maintaining a full (though deliberately reducing) diary for consultancy and training.
The new UCAN
Here is a recording of a presentation about the future of UCAN given by four of the new Directors at the Cutting Edge conference on 22nd March 2017:
The UCAN vision
UCAN proactively working towards enabling the Church in the UK to
- value the spiritual gifts of administration;
- give due recognition to those who exercise this ministry (changing present perceptions);
- rethink Minister training, UCAN speaking directly to Ministers and senior church leaders.
