I enjoy public speaking, from workshops and presentations to sermons. People tell me I’m enthusiastic and passionate. I like telling stories, and hearing new ones in response. I welcome being peppered with questions – I tell people to go ahead and interrupt me, I have two young adult children and have not had an uninterrupted thought in 20 years! My sessions are interactive, as that’s how we learn best (plus it’s more fun for me as well).
What makes me stand out? I understand not just fundraising but Christian fundraising really well.
- Extensive research into Christian giving in Canada
- Experience in charities big and small
- Theological training with a focus on church and money
I know the numbers and the trends, and can translate giving patterns into practical suggestions for your group right now.
I would be happy to come speak to your church, charity or non-profit board. Consider me as a resource person for your denominational event or pastors’ meeting, as I find that at any such event, I invariably end up talking about fundraising and theology!
