I have been leading others for over 30 years as a worship leader, conference speaker, associate pastor, business administrator, road manager, consultant, office manager, and corporate development administrator. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism/English Literature in 1981 and went on to graduate school, attending The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. I graduated in 1985 with a Master of Divinity in Christian Education/Church Business Administration.
I have served numerous churches and ministries across the country. In 1991-92 I was the Administrator and Office Manager for LaMar Boschman Ministries and The Worship Institute located in Dallas, TX. I planned, administrated, and taught at worship training events all across the USA and Canada. After leaving Dallas for Florida, I was on staff as Minister of Music/Church Business Administrator, until taking a ministry sabbatical in 1996. In 2000 I began ministering as a worship leader for Dan Duke Ministries, leading worship each weekend at various churches around the southeast. Following a year of traveling with Dan, I accepted a staff position as Worship Leader (part-time) at a small, dynamic church in St. Augustine, FL. After building the worship team ministry there, I began filling in at various churches in the Jacksonville, FL area as weekend worship leader.
Prior to founding The Management Agency in 2005, I was personal manager for Paul Wilbur (recording artist with Integrity Music) in Jacksonville, FL. For over three years I served Paul’s ministry as office administrator, road manager, and personal manager. We toured extensively in Latin America and in Africa and across the USA.
As a conference speaker, I bring my years of experience in the church and business worlds to help others develop a mature understanding of their calling. I regularly consult with touring artists and bands providing career counseling and developing customized management plans that are strategically implemented to help take their ministries to new levels. I am available as a conference speaker addressing topics including leadership issues, career development, and ministry planning and development. I also work with individual churches and ministries in setting up their offices, administrative systems, and team & leadership development.
