Alan speaks from his award-winning book, An Unhurried Life, about unhurried life with God, in community, in leadership development, in solitude, silence and prayer, and in doing the hard work of continued growth. From his book, An Unhurried Leader, he speaks on leading from overflow, working and leading with God, grace-empowered leadership, and leadership vision. He addresses the intersection between personal spiritual formation and fruitful leadership engagement. People leave these gatherings inspired, encouraged and energized for their life and work with God.

Team Training

Gather leaders from every level of your organization for a day or more of training. Alan blends teaching, personal discovery, small group interaction, and large group debriefing to create a dynamic learning environment. Leaders experience a vision for a less anxious and more hopeful, trusting way of working with Jesus in their areas of responsibility. Alan trains groups of 20 to 200 or more leaders with organizations across the country and around the world.


Alan consults with groups of leaders to provide training in a way of planning, strategizing and leading that is well-rooted in deep intimacy with God. Incorporate a “seek the kingdom first” approach to leadership. Learn to plan events from a center of listening to God and seeing people through His eyes. Learning these patterns contributes to the sustainability of your leadership, and can produce “much fruit that lasts (Jn 15:16).” Consultations can be one-time or ongoing. Leaders have reported leaving these consultations more united, creative, rested, encouraged and energized for their work ahead.
