Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a church consultant, leadership coach, and a second chair leader in a local church. Even though I now serve in vocational ministry, my career began with an MBA and 15+ years of experience in business. I love my family and my church, and I'm excited about the doors that God continues to open in my life.
What was your motivation behind this project? Too many second chair leaders feel frustrated and lonely in their roles. We hope to at least begin a dialogue about what it means to be a leader and a follower at the same time, to have dreams but to choose contentment in the present. In doing so, we hope that second chair leaders will find greater joy and fulfillment as they serve in God's Kingdom.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? We desire for the church and church leaders to be strengthened and to minister at their maximum effectiveness. "Second chair leaders" have few resources that acknowledge the unique challenges of their role. We hope that readers will find this to be a practical and encouraging resource.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I'm thankful for my wife, my parents, and many unsung people who have deeply influenced my journey of faith. Leadership Network has been a tremendous resource for me as a Christian leader. I enjoy reading a variety of Christian authors, including C.S. Lewis, Andy Stanley, Reggie McNeal, and Bill Hybels. I've also learned much about leadership from secular authors such as Jim Collins and Robert Quinn.
