Inspire and help your community to discover God’s heart and mobilize for imaginative community engagement!
I am available to come and speak as well as to lead workshops for your organization or church community either in person or online, in order to inspire and equip your people to engage with your community in creative ways.
I have been described as a gifted communicator with a heart for the broken and those who have been marginalized by society as well as having a heart for the church. I enjoy ministering to a broad range of people, having been involved in a number of cutting edge ministries and organizations as well as mainstream churches.
I bring a message that is heartfelt, innovative, funny and engaging, as a speaker who crosses boundaries, cultures and denominational lines with ease. I am available to share stories of journeying with God in surprising places and insights I have learned from experience, in addition to sharing from Scripture God’s heart for your organization and your community.
I am passionate about teaching people in organizations, schools, and churches how to lovingly engage with their community as well as to embrace the marginalized in an ever-changing world. These workshops are designed to equip you to engage your community more fully.
