A Little About Me

I am motivated to elevate leaders and empower others to reach their potential. As a coach, consultant and speaker I partner with leaders and organizations to improve their level of effectiveness, efficiency and excellence.

The world we live in is filled with both rapid change and tremendous opportunities. As a coach I assist others in navigating the change and creating a path that will lead them towards the fulfillment of their specific objectives.

My extensive corporate and ministry background has made me uniquely qualified to assist others in reaching their goals.

I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance from Bowling Green State University and was subsequently employed by IBM as a marketing representative.  Following IBM, I worked for National City Bank in Toledo, Ohio, as a Trust Administrator/Officer and became head of the Corporate Trust Department.

As president of JSS Consulting Inc., I help today’s leaders transition into a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment. After 18 years of working with pastors and leaders I have developed keen insight in the areas of strategic planning, leadership development, systems implementation, and enhancing staff productivity.

I also serve as Lead Pastor of Strong Tower Ministries in Fredericksburg, Virginia. It is a vibrant and diverse congregation of nearly 2000. In addition, I serve as Director of Cornerstone Global Network under the leadership of Bishop Michael Pitts. It is a network of over 60 churches throughout the United States, Mexico, and the U.K.

I believe that the power of partnership makes the impossible possible. My coaching is designed to support you in discovering the solutions that will unlock the success that is awaiting you.

I have been married to my college sweetheart Nicola since July 11, 1992 and we are the proud parents of Lauren, Kristin, and Jeffrey.

I also hold certifications for the following:

  • Hudson Institute of Coaching
  • Myers Briggs Type Indicator
  • The DiSC Personality Assessment
