Being an officer, or senior enlisted, and a Christian leader in today’s military is tough. Deployments, long hours, family separation, loneliness, the responsibility for people’s lives and welfare, temptations, fatigue, personal conflicts… It can all add up to a tremendous amount of physical, emotional and spiritual stress. I’ve been there and understand.
Let me help guide you through the rough times and help enable you to have peace while achieving your full potential as a military and Christian leader. My specialty is coaching you to achieve your personal and professional goals while being true to your faith, and fulfilling your Christian potential.
I’ve worked in a professional military capacity, as an active duty officer (naval aviation) and as a defense contract instructor, for 32 years. Over that time period I’ve coached and trained over 500 young (22 – 35 year old) US Navy officers (pilot and NFO), both individually and in group/team settings. Some relevant resume’ highlights:
- Deployments & Dets to: Sigonella, Sicily, Iceland, Adak, Bermuda, Panama, Chile, Japan, Azores, Antigua, Crete, UK, Spain, all US squadron and wing sites, etc.
- AIRLANT NFO NATOPS, training standardization officer
- Director of UMFO, the initial phase of P-3/8 NFO aircrew training (8 years)
- Executive Officer and Program Manager for Naval Air Reserve Jacksonville (Naval Operations Support Center)
- Officer in Charge, Reserve Naval Aviation assets (NAS Cecil Field)
- Aircraft Mission Commander/Tactical Coordinator – over 2000 flight hours, and 5000 simulator hours as an instructor (VP-30, VP-16, VP-62, CPRW-11, FRS)
- TSC OPCON senior watch officer
- Tactical Training Team leader, Reserve MPA (worldwide pre-deployment seminars)
- Squadron AV/ARM division officer and Training Department head
- Speaker/trainer at Executive TAP (military to civilian career transition)
- Current leader of a weekly military men’s Bible study fellowship (15 years)
- Current and active FAA private pilot
- Certified Professional Leadership-Discipleship Coach, and seminary student (Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary)
- Church elder, adult Sunday school teacher and small group leader, and coach to pastors and lay leaders (Presbyterian, Baptist and non-denominational)
- Coordinator For Mandarin Presbyterian Church’s Ministry to Military
The purpose of listing the above is not to impress (I’ve been especially fortunate in my Navy career opportunities and humbled by the opportunity to serve), but to demonstrate that I can readily identify with whatever you are going through, and have successfully navigated the challenges, with God’s help, a lot of prayer and the helpful assistance of some Christian coaches of my own. Please refer to the other sections of this web site, and contact me if you feel I may be able to coach you toward your full potential as a Christian leader. I would consider it a blessing to be of assistance to a Christian military brother or sister.

What is the cost? Absolutely nothing. It’s free to military personal and organizations! (I provide similar coaching to corporate executives for $250/hour.) It’s my way of giving back and utilizing my experience, gifts and talents to the benefit of those who love God and desire to do all to His glory. Helping you to achieve your fullest personal professional and spiritual potential… while sacrificially serving a noble purpose larger than yourself. We are called upon by Christ to be a light on the hill and salt to our fellow man/woman.
Please contact me if you’re interested in being coached (at no charge), or if you have questions or comments.
