As my calendar allows, I am available for free consulting or speaking engagements as long as actual expenses are covered for non-local invitations. I do not charge consultation fees and don’t request honorariums (unless the event requires attendees to pay admission or tuition, such as a paid conference or academic course). I am available for the following kinds of engagements:
- Equipping church pastoral staff and leadership in theological issues and practices introduced in RetroChristianity, including basics of classic orthodoxy, development of doctrine and practice, and especially ecclesiological issues such as church governance, sacraments, and pulpit/altar-centered worship.
- Challenging church members on the biblical, theological, and historical perspectives on doctrinal unity and diversity, church order, church membership, the function of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and classic models of worship.
- Conducting seminars on church history or theology, including the value of theological and historical reflection for evangelical renewal and an overview of major figures in church history. Conferences will be custom-tailored for individual church needs.
- Consultation for those involved in church planting and church renewal as they think through issues of church governance, constitution, leadership selection and training, worship style issues, and how to implement a pulpit/altar-centered worship.
Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions, concerns, or requests. They will be given the utmost consideration as we seek together to carefully receive the faith once for all delivered to the saints and to pass it on intact to the next generation.
