Most of my speaking takes place at Emmanuel Mennonite Church where I serve as lead pastor, but I also love to offer writing workshops, classes on journaling and other spiritual practices, keynote presentations, and retreats.

I’ve spoken to college students, health practitioners, women, men, pastors, and other church leaders, at Columbia Bible College, Fraser Valley Christian Writers, Seattle Pacific University, St. Benedict Center, and many other church and community settings.

I continue to be drawn to themes related to Spark: Igniting Your God-Given CreativitySacred Pauses: Spiritual Practices for Personal Renewaland am now booking events related to Four Gifts: Seeking Self-Care for Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength. I’m also happy to consider other ideas that speak to the needs and interests of your group.
