Ken currently serves as a pastoral staff member for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and has been acknowledged by his peers who elected him to a term as President of the NCCL (National Conference for Catechetical Leadership). He has been blessed to learn from several bishops and additional mentors during his 20+ years of Church-related work in Pennsylvania and Indiana. In addition to being catechetical director in Indianapolis and assistant director for the Diocese of Pittsburgh, Ken has worked in development as well as sales—bringing all that experience to the table as a consultant and speaker who can help enhance your efforts.
It’s been said of Ken that even his enemies tend to like him. Put another way, he strikes a balance (by God’s grace) between zeal for the Faith and approachability in the eyes of those whose faith journey has them, temporarily at least, on a slightly different page—if not a different book! (Ken claims he can count his enemies on one hand, most of them holdovers from old CYO sports rivalries.)
Indianapolis is called the Crossroads of America, in part because it’s within a day’s drive of 60% of the US population. Ken is a dedicated husband and dad who’s very accessible to you in helping your team achieve and sustain clarity of purpose, consistency in implementation and effectiveness in mission. Invite Ken to work with your team—sharing the expertise he’s gained through years of service to our Lord and His holy people.

From Maintenance to Mission: Organizational Health & Disciple-Making in Parishes
--This talk covers three basic areas: 1) What is organizational health? 2) Concrete ways being organizationally healthy can help parishes make disciples; and 3) Proven ways to improve your parish’s organizational health. Catholic leaders such as pastors, principals—and even bishops—have benefitted greatly from hearing these principles and putting them in to action, by God’s grace!
