Core Strengths Inventory

The SDI measures what motivates you, performance, people or process and how you operate when healthy and when your navigating conflict with others.  Awareness and attending to your strengths help you make your best contribution to God’s work in you and through you. I offer this service in conjunction with Consentia Group where I serve as a Master Facilitator. 

Emotionally Healthy Discipleship

I am a trained consultant who can help you not only understand where you are in your emotional health but also develop a plan to mature in Christlikeness.  I use the Emotionally Healthy Leader book, the Emotionally Healthy Assessment as well as The Emotionally Healthy Discipleship Church Assessment tools.

Prepare & Enrich

This marriage strengths assessment is designed to help Pre-marital couples (Prepare) and married couples (Enrich) discover their level of strength in 10 areas ranging from sexuality to spirituality. I work with individual couples, groups and/or a retreat format to accomplish your goals when it comes to building healthy marriages.



Joel is a quality lead pastor who through his own vulnerability has been willing to provide leadership of a pastoral team developing a strategy to make a difference in this region and beyond.
