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’m happy to consider other topics that fit the needs of your group, but I continue to be drawn to themes related to Spark: Igniting Your God-Given Creativity and Sacred Pauses: Spiritual Practices for Personal Renewal
