Peter and I both consult on a range of issues related to congregational health, growth and community building. You may read more about our offerings on our Leading Congregations consulting website, and find a curated stream of resources on the Leading Congregations Facebook page and Twitter account.
Recently my consulting work has shifted to serving congregations as a staff consulting minister.
First Church Boston 2013 – 2015
At First Church in Boston I am served a two year contract position as Consulting Minister on a ministerial staff team. This position was created following the sudden retirement of their Associate Minister. In addition to worship responsibilities, I coordinated the development of a new Religious Education program, supervising Religious Education teachers, leading adult programs, and supporting lay leaders working on social justice and membership.
UU Society of Martha’s Vineyard 2012-2013
I worked with the UU Society of Martha’s Vineyard as a Consulting Minister for the Fall of 2012 through Spring of 2013. This was during a period when the congregation was without a settled minister. Having served the congregation previously as an Interim Minister, it was a joy to return to the Vineyard. During this period I worked with the congregation on healthy congregation best practices, listening skills, and leadership development .
