Paterson LifePlan & StratOp Facilitator
I have been blessed to serve over 30 years in non-profit, community, and church leadership as pastor, church planting leader, founder, executive director, university teacher, public speaker, fundraiser, coach, mentor, and consultant. In that time, I have co-founded three community serving non-profit organizations and served on three church planting teams. All six of these organizations are thriving and are all transforming lives and communities today in Southern California and Northern Colorado. I hold a BA in Christian Education and an MA in Leadership Studies from Vanguard University of Southern California.
My wife and I have raised 4 great kids… two of them come into our family through foster care and adoption. One of our greatest life passions to create opportunities for kids who are caught in a vicious cycle of brokenness by no choice of their own. We work to strengthen and support the families that are giving these kids a second chance and by helping to expand the capacity of organizations that are providing key services to these kids.
Having coached leaders and provided strategic planning support for dozens of organizations, I chose certification with the Paterson process because it is the best tool I have ever experienced in truly creating clarity, alignment of vision, team ownership, focused direction, sustainable impact, and measurable results. Without exception, I have seen transforming results in key areas of organizational health and growth as I have worked with organizations to install the StratOp system. Likewise, I have seen leaders and individuals in transition gain life-changing clarity and focused results as we have worked together to create a LifePlan. These tools have enabled me to live out my greatest passion in helping others to step more fully into their unique purpose and most fulfilling areas of impact.
