Too few churches and ministries know how to handle deep personnel problems. Too few even know how to maximize their team in the best of situations. Tom has extensive experience on both ends of the spectrum.
He holds a master’s degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, but his real training on personnel and team dynamics came during his years as a Human Resource Director responsible for most of the U.S. ministry departments of Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru), in church experiences, and later in leadership with Ratio Christi.
He’s been directly involved with high-level personnel problem solving involving both ministry personnel and Senate staffers at the U.S. Capitol. He’s helped a local church walk through the searing pain of a youth minister’s felonious moral failure.
Those are the exceptional situations. More commonly there’s a staff team that’s not meeting its full potential, or a leader who’s making lesser — though still significant — mistakes, and who needs some re-direction.
These are tough situations for which few are fully equipped. Churches are famous for going it alone into territories they’ve never walked before. (It’s different in ministry than it is in business, by the way!) Tom has the experience to help.
