Having been in Church ministry well over two decades, building various ministries, leading a Church for 11 years, as well as traveling the globe building, encouraging the larger Church, the last few years I have found myself in a new season. Having come off a few time outs to just focus on my personal life, it has not been a easy season by any means, but it has been a season of growth. It has formed and changed me in new ways which will affect how I minister in the coming years. One of my passions is to help people find their call and to talk all things leadership while focusing on doing all I can to keep on encouraging the local Church. But one of my passions is to serve outside the Church so I plan to venture back into some of these passions in the coming year. But whats most important to me is my children, Camie Rose, who is married to Hobie Johnson, and John Richard II who have both traveled with me most of their life. They are both grown and off on their own adventures. (I miss them terribly).
There are so many things I love, but I have learned in all these years of leadership that everything tends to run in seasons. Its no secret, the Church is shifting yet again. What was available 20, even ten years ago in the area of ministry, Church planting or worship has changed or grown exponentially. There are many layers to what I love and would love to build this next season, but this year I feel my main all is to continue to build into local Church, whether that be through leadership training, church planting, worship, women and men working alongside each other. My heart and focus will continue to turn towards mental health, which is exciting with some new things coming in this area as well. With that, my hope is to continue to help encourage leaders and connect the Church with the community. From teaching at events, leadership gatherings, mentoring, or investing in leadership in various Movements, my desire is to serve well in every place I am invited into.
Many years in the making, the Effective Leadership gathering went above & beyond what we even planned or hoped for. This was set up strategically for many reasons where I wanted to offer what I wish I had support wise when in comes to leadership. Yes, we are doing this again, with some additional focuses on November 13, 14. Details will be coming soon. I am planning to do these in a few difference locations with various teams in the coming few years. This team was perfect for this new pioneer project.

I am working on a new book geared towards leadership. I will share more about this in the coming months.
Conversations with Christy
I have done lots of Christian TV throughout the years and I committed to two rounds which I finished up this last season. I will not be continuing this show. My focus will be in some new projects where I can also reach people outside the Church. You can watch the interviews at the following link, but we will only post for a short season. https://www.tbnuk.org/home
It's no secret the world is seeking leadership & its needed more than ever. In order for the Church to be effective, we must be present. This is not about conquering or taking over cities and organizations, but learning how to serve effectively. Whether male or female, the Church needs people willing to lay down their lives for the sake of the Kingdom. This section will feature interviews, clips & articles encouraging all of us to grow in the area of leadership in all sorts of fields.
1 in 4. Thats the statistic with those struggling with mental health. With all thats happening around the world, this is growing. How do we bring healing & wholeness to the world around us? I've shared many times now that I feel so strong about mental health that the Churches who ignore the opportunities to get equipped in the area of mental health, learning new prayer models, they will be ineffective or sadly continue to damage in various ways. I believe this even stronger today. The world is groaning & with more & more tragic events, the aftermath where mental health is affected will become greater. Getting equipped is the first step to getting involved and learning to love the world around us more effectively.
Christy's love for the whole Church takes her around the world serving in several different Denominations, Movements with friends around the world. There are so many Church planting movements who are building into future generations. Find out more of what's happening around the world. If you have desire to plant a Church, send us a note & stay connected. We'll be offering some forums & interactions with those who want to plant, with who have more experience in planting. The world is getting smaller & Church Planting is ever changing. Be encouraged as there are incredible places who are in need of those willing to serve!
Talking healing and wholeness as well as seasons of life changes, this intimate interview is one of Christy's latest.
Live Well Together from Livability is a facilitated day to develop mental health awareness for Churches
Later this year Christy is working with some friends to pioneer another new event. This is a very personal event which will also be geared towards an area Christy has felt is missing and we can't wait to share about it... coming soon!
