Steve Cuss helps leaders apply living systems thinking to the Christian life and Christian leadership. He is a very engaging story teller who combines a clear grasp of system theory that he integrates effectively with his faith. His experience as chaplain and pastor provide a rich context for helping translate the power of system thinking into practical tools for Christian living.
