Hello! My name is Steve Stutz. Thanks for clicking on my name and reading my profile. I hope something in my training or experience catches your eye and invites you to reach out to initiate a conversation about your church. I might be able to help you address the issues you are facing or be able to recommend a colleague who has expertise in that particular area. My coaching business website is: www.forwardpathcoaching.com and you can find details on my comprehensive church consultation process at  http://www.stevestutz.com/church-consulting.html

I have 25 years of ordained ministry, having served both small town and urban churches. As a consultant, I have worked directly with about 20 congregations of various sizes and denominations on issues of

  • mission/vision/values development
  • governance & organizational structure
  • administrative systems
  • clergy coaching
  • strategic planning.

I have walked with two congregations in the Intentional Interim Ministry Process to help them prepare organizationally & psychologically, to search for, select, call/contract with, and welcome their future settled pastor.
