As a consultant and coach, for almost 20 years I have helped thousands of leaders and organizations get better. I served as CEO of Leadership Network and as a pastor. We revitalized two churches and planting two churches. I also have a long history in business, government and nonprofit work.

For over 35 years, I have been in a leadership position; mostly as a senior leader. My education includes a seminary master’s and a master’s in organizational leadership. I am close to my doctorate in educational leadership. Also, I once helped lead a mid-sized city, where I served as Vice Mayor and Finance Chair.

The greatest times for Cheryl and me our with our adult sons, Jeremy, his wife Mary, and our youngest son Nate and his wife Courtney.  Jeremy and Mary blessed us with our grandchildren, Eleanor and Margot. Life also includes a sweet Yorkiepoo named Lexi.

Over 20 years ago, I founded a non-profit ministry called Mustard Seed Ministry.  We provide devotional resources, conduct family and leadership seminars, as well as coaching and consulting. My Myers Briggs INTJ personality has served me well in leadership. I am certified to give the official assessments. Full of big ideas, I love creative and critical thinking, but especially love to see progress.
