A New Resource for Ministry Leaders!


Whatever your ministry context, the kind of authentic leadership needed today relies heavily on the person of the leader.

 Ministry is not what it used to be. What is most needed in our ever-changing culture? Join me on a journey as we settle into these questions:

  • How does a leader lose their soul in the midst of leadership?
  • What is leader’s first responsibility?
  • What ability do leaders want most in their leadership?
  • How do we lead courageously in a shifting culture?
  • Why our formation matters (really matters) in God’s Kingdom purposes.
  • Don’t miss the most important thing.
  • What is our most essential role as a leader?
  • What is the most significant relational skill a minister can possess today?

All There unpacks Jesus’ invitation to give careful attention to the three essential dimensions of human life: God, self, and others. Birthed out of my own struggle in ministry leadership and working alongside ministry leaders for over 10 years, All There is about the soul of the leader and what it means to live as authentically and redemptively as possible for others.

I have learned that the real vision we bring to our leadership is the ability to see what God is doing. We have role in God’s creatively unfolding story in our unique context, and that is what is most needed.

My prayer is that this book allows leaders to order their lives around personal, emotional, and relational practices of wholeness, which would overflow into authentic and transformational leadership.

Advent Reflections (Ebook)

This year we vow things will be different. This year we will slow down. We will spend less. We all want to live differently into the Christmas season…more reflective, less hurried, with more margin in our lives to give more of our time and our finances to our family and those in need. But all around we are rushed into some kind of celebration that equates love with spending.

In a culture and season cluttered with distractions, we seek to make room for what is real and essential. Advent Reflections is a devotional that invites us to be more attentive to all the moments and places where God is present in the midst of the hubbub.

With a short, insightful daily devotional (ebook), Scripture reading, and two reflective questions, Advent Reflections is perfect for individuals or families and offers us a way of living more intentional to the ways God comes to us that we might, like the wise men and the shepherds, respond with worship and wonder.
