For example, I offer Safe Sanctuary or Safe Church training – teaching congregations how to reduce the risk of child abuse in the church. I consult with churches on writing and editing policies, giving individual congregations situation-specific help. I also train congregations’ workers with children and youth. And all of these trainings can be held in person at local churches but training is also available online through BeADisciple.com!
In addition, I teach religion courses at the University of Phoenix’s Jersey City Campus and at the College of New Rochelle. I’m a substitute preacher at various churches in the New York City area. I’m the author of a text-book for pastors and laity called Storytelling: Beyond the Sermon and a devotional book called The Study: Spiritual Action in Daily Life. I am also the Pastoral Counselor for Chelsea Community Church in Manhattan.
I lead workshops on Christian Meditation Practices, Christian Women Mystics, and other spiritual topics. And I also lead programs for individuals and local congregations — everything from a Women’s Prayer Breakfast here in Queens to personal spiritual retreats via FaceTime to text message Bible Studies!
In short, I’m very busy! And I’d love to include you in my ministries! You can follow this blog to find out what I’m offering or you can contact me with your specific interests: email@example.com. And you can subscribe to my seasonal newsletter on MailChimp.
