National Conferences

In both my administrative and leadership roles I have often been called upon to speak to groups about a variety of subjects involving the practical application of spiritual principles in health care and life in general. The following is a compilation of PowerPoint talks I’ve given over the years, many with associated audio files and handouts. When an audio file is associated, download the PowerPoint (often in PDF form) in a separate tab, start the audio file, and then scroll through the presentation as the talk proceeds. Feel free to access and share these materials with others. I’m comfortable speaking to large or smaller groups on these or any similar topics and am growing into more areas, particularly those having to do with the advancement of the Kingdom of God.

  • Hundreds of practitioners and students from all over the United States gather annually at the CCHF Conference to share knowledge, skills, and experiences, and spend time worshipping and seeking God.

My two recorded workshops for this year’s conference are posted on YouTube here: Growing in Grit by God’s Grace and 2021 Vision and CCHF Mission.

2021 Spiritual Care Symposium, April 22-23 – “Every Visit is A Treasure Hunt” – online

  • The 2021 Symposium was a two-day event filled with interaction through workshops, panels, discussion groups and online chats, that equipped attendees with an overview of the role and delivery of integrated spiritual care in a primary care setting from a Christ-centered perspective. CCHF wants to encourage spiritual care that is respectful, appropriate, effective and Biblically faithful. Topics covered included staff and self-care, ethics and models of integrated spiritual health in medical, behavioral health, and dental encounters.
