What I do

At the heart of my ministry is helping others ministries go deeper and become more intentional. God gave each of us gifts and I want to help yours shine.


I write in several different spaces online and in print about ministry, leadership and spiritual formation.


My joy is helping authors voices become stronger and clearer without losing their unique sound and perspective.


Preaching at the intersection of ancient wisdom and modern challenges, I love making faith come off the page and into real life.


From retreat settings and keynotes to small groups and Bible studies, I enjoy making faith applicable, thoughtful and just uncomfortable enough to grow.


With 15 years experience in spiritual formation for all ages, I love to teach and facilitate conversations around a variety of topics on spiritual formation and congregational leadership.


Need help thinking through an area of minister or leadership? I get to know your ministry and your context in order to help you take the next step.

I applied for the study grant to provide the time and space I needed to research and write my next book and collection of resources, which I will be sharing about on my blog
