This fall, I’m excited to be partnering with David Fletcher at by teaching in his XP-Certification Program. David is one of the strongest and most trustworthy voices in the XP Community. His website has long been a great source of information for XP’s around the country and his yearly XP-Seminar has been the ONLY conference specifically created for second chair leaders in the church. Plus, he’s just an awesome guy that you can’t help but like.

His new Certification Program for Executive Pastors is sure to be an incredible value when considering the content and quality. David has asked me to guest lecture a class on The Strategy of Spiritual DNA. I’ll be talking about the changes that I had to go through in switching churches last year from NY to FL. Specifically, working with two very different Lead Pastors, learning a different approach to branding, urban vs. suburban, and many other changes. I’ll also spend some time teaching on how I approached the first six months of my time at Mosaic Church.

If you are in need of more training as an Executive Pastor, consider signing up for these and other courses through X-Pastor. You won’t be disappointed. Hope to see you there!
