Find Focus

If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.
Individuals and groups need to take time out to identify where they want to go so they can decide on an effective way to reach their goals.
Small group process and strategic planning are areas in which I am well versed.

All ministers and youth workers require professional supervision. It’s a great way to maintain progress toward individual goals and to continue personal development.

CAIRA-trained supervisors are a church-based affordable option, recognised by the Anglican and Presbyterian churches in New Zealand, for both ordained and lay leaders.

I am licensed to provide supervision, and to train supervisors in the CAIRA method.

If you are providing supervision but have no specific training, ask about the one year Certificate course that will provide the theory to underpin your practice

Develop Leaders

The most effective way to develop leaders is to give potential leaders the opportunity to lead. This can be done in none threatening stages suited to individual potential and passion. A useful process can be:
            they watch you lead / you lead together / they lead while you watch

If you are a Presbyterian minister serving in a congregation or chaplaincy you are required by the General Assembly to hold a Certificate of Good Standing, which remains valid for a period of 3 years. It is renewable by undertaking a Ministry Development Review before the 3 year term expires.

It is important to note that this is a Development review to assist you in improving and developing your ministry. It is not marking you against a pre-determined scale, nor comparing you with anyone else. The report is private to you and shared only with whom you choose. It is normal practise to share the report, and in particular any development goals, with you pastoral supervisor in order to monitor progress over the next three years.

See the PCANZ website   for more details.


Build Teams

Three key ingredients in an effective team are loyalty to the team, recognition of individual strengths, and respectful honesty among team members.
