I’m an energetic, non-denominational pastor with 20 years of experience in both large and small churches. I believe real ministry starts with a genuine encounter with Jesus, infilling of the Holy Spirit, and reinforced by one-on-one discipleship and mentoring. My typical leadership style/strategy involves building strong leadership and delegating ministry as a team. With God’s help, I have been able to accomplish this successfully through years of leadership experience.
Summary of Skills and Qualifications:
Speaking/Preaching – Preaching and public speaking is a strong suit. Examples are on your Right:
Discipleship and Leadership Development – I have implemented and discipled in almost every leadership role of a church; from youth and children’s church leaders, to hospitality teams and foreign/local missions.
Church Management – My role in the church has also included software setup, training, implementation, and management. I am most familiar with C.C.B, Planning Center and Breeze, as well as several third party Bridges. (Childcare check-in, background checking, online giving, worship team management, etc.) This has also included QuickBooks setup, training, implementation and management of Church income/expense account setup, budgeting, and financial reports.
Worship Team Development – I have years of experience playing guitar and singing. Developing new talent from scratch has been a constant theme (I developed six different worship teams.)
Sound Technician – I have trained, installed, implemented and managed church digital/analog sound and light equipment (small to medium light universes).
