Some of my projects

I began working with SLI through “train the trainer” projects in West Virginia.

WV Communications Team

I have been actively coaching the West Virginia Communications Team for nearly a decade. Through our implementation of SLI principles, child teams and leadership development we have received 10 United Methodist Association of Communicator Awards, including Communicator of the Year.

WV Conference Team

I have been coaching the West Virginia conference team for over seven years. This team has multiplied into several conference operational teams, including all nine districts operating under District Lead Teams.

WV Facilitator Program

I helped launch a West Virginia United Methodist Conference Facilitator certification process which continues to multiply operational teams in local churches, districts and the conference.
