He loves assisting people develop spiritually, relationally and vocationally. His personal mission statement is to “Assist the Kingdom minded, assist The Kingdom.”


Convene’s mission is to connect, equip, and inspire Christian CEOs and business owners to grow exceptional businesses, become higher-impact leaders and honor God. Through peer-to-peer and executive coaching insight. Growing toward increased personal and business impact. Leading to an ultimate Kingdom legacy.



Each month I meet with 60 plus leaders/business owners for a 60-90 minutes One to One. My goal is to ask probing questions, listen to what they say and do not say, and challenge them to become “a bit better.” It is an honor to be a “trusted” advisor to so many bright, engaging business leaders and I focus upon their relationship with God, their spouse and children as well as those who at work report to them. While being profitable is essential, developing those in your sphere of influence is equally essential. My goal is to help my clients lead a balanced life and one that honors God in everything they do.



My goal as a consultant is to help the owner and or CEO to develop a company that gets “a bit better” in each aspect of their business, and over time, to create a business that is both satisfying and successful. My clients refer to me as a professional question asker. I want my clients to achieve their “desired outcomes.” I also lead many leadership/executive retreats that focus on developing sound strategy plans and to create high functioning teams.
