Our director Mark Brouwer, is available to speak to your community group, church, staff or clergy group about healthy leadership, maximizing your impact while minimizing your stress, overcoming overwhelm, helping others without harming yourself, or recovery-related topics. Mark speaks with honesty and candor about his own struggles and learnings as a church planter, senior pastor, leadership coach, and recovery workshop leader and counselor. An ordained pastor in the Christian Reformed Church, he is able to serve as a guest preacher and address issues that sometimes can be tricky for pastors to address in their own churches. He also has a story to tell about his own experiences in dealing with overwhelm and addiction, and lessons for leaders in facing their own shortcomings and emotional needs. Here are some topic areas Mark speaks about:
- what leaders need from their followers
- how to change the world without wrecking your life
- helping others without hurting yourself
- how to deal with compulsive sexual behavior – in yourself or others
- dealing with burnout
- enlarging your ministry without shrinking your soul
Mark has presented to groups as small as 10 people, and crowds numbering in the thousands. He is equally adept at long workshops (he has taught week-long classes to missionaries about sexual health and sexual addiction in ministry) and 30 minute keynotes.
