Training Programs

To better serve congregational leaders, I have moved my core training work online.  This includes my LIVE monthly training program Leading Congregations Monthly.  Each month we go deeper into strategy releated to leading and growing congregations.

Sign up to receive my free video series “Congregations and the Digital Path to Membership” which explains how social media and technology has changed the way people are trying to connect with congregations.



Please contact me here to discuss speaking engagements, trainings for religious professionals, and other events.

SECULAR EVENTS: With the growing impact of technology on our lives, our human institutions need to intentionally promote connection and build community.  I welcome invitations to offer keynotes, seminars, and trainings for secular organizations in New England, especially in my neighbordhood – the Greater Boston area.
