I am a local church pastor with weekly commitments on Thursday nights and Sundays. My travel schedule is quite limited as my primary calling is to Discovery. I preach about 36 weeks per year and can travel to speak a handful of times per year, so I am particular about where I give my time. To inquire about speaking, fill out the form below.
I charge a speaking fee, a significant portion of which goes to my church. I do not negotiate my fee with two exceptions:
- I have committed to serve the Denver Metro area and I donate my time and efforts to churches and non profits in that region. If you fit that category and I am available, I will happily come at no charge. I can offer a keynote talk or a 2 hour workshop anywhere within 45 minutes of Broomfield.
- If you are located in an area of personal interest, I can negotiate my fee. For example, I was born and raised in Perth, Australia and have family there. If you can get me close to home, I am there! I also serve at a leadership conference in England in Autumn and Spring and am happy to extend that trip to serve a European cohort. You may also reside in a destination my wife and I would like to visit. It doesn’t hurt to ask!
My time is yours while I am with you. My Managing Leadership Anxiety material is best presented in either a 45-90 minute keynote, or a 2-3 hour workshop. This material is most effective when people have a chance to dialog, so even in a keynote, if appropriate, I will ask people to dialogue at their tables throughout the presentation. I can also offer some individual coaching on a specific challenge if time permits.
As well as my fee, I ask you to cover the lowest priced direct fare from DEN for two tickets and hotel room. I cover my own meals while traveling. If I am traveling more than 1 time zone from MST, plan on covering 2 days of my fee.
I also speak on:
- The craft of public speaking. How to build a good talk and how to diagnose a bad one.
- Systemic poverty and the church’s vision for reciprocity, dignity and solidarity. The lowest form of poverty is being seen as having nothing of value to offer and too much of our welfare and charity efforts, though well meaning, strip people of dignity. But God’s vision for God’s community is one where everyone can flourish and depend on each other, where the resourced can depend on the under resourced, not just serve them.
- I am a preacher, so I can preach from any text in the Bible you need, but it is less likely that I will travel to only preach, but if it would serve you for me to preach while I am with you, I can do that.
