We're committed to presenting and participating in programs that give children tools for living confidently in their community and in the world. We support values of family, kindness, community, compassion toward others and the ideals that will allow the generations to come to make choices for peaceful co-habitation of all people on the planet.


We love to work with organizations that lift children and youth through community development programs such as summer camps, after school programs, literacy, leadership development.. 



I started out taking a few classes on spirituality and metaphysics to help change what was at one time a pretty unfulfilled life.  As I discovered the spiritual laws of life, I found myself wanting to share them with others.  So what was supposed to be a personal "change my life program"  turned into a life long commitment to support others in applying the spiritual principles that absolutely change lives.  While serving as a church pastor and spiritual leader for over twenty years I discovered some of the key challenges that faith-based boards face I developed a passion for helping boards be their best self, while working to meet the mission of their organizations. Now, I'm committed to working with boards who strive to join good governance with mission centered values founded on peace and harmony to make a great difference in the communities they love and serve.  If I can support you, your faith-based organization, your board, on a journey of empowerment, it would be my joy to connect with you.

One of the critical issues facing non-profit Boards is the need for greater understanding regarding their roles and responsibilities.  Crucial to running a faith-based board is operating from the knowledge of their true value to the organization.  When we add the spiritual principles that set faith-based organizations apart from for-profit boards we get to use and enjoy the gifts of serving on a Spirit-led board.

Our Training and Enrichment programs can be customized for a single board or more broad based so that several boards or ministry leaders may participate in a joint workshop, seminar or retreat.  One Accord Board Programs and Initiatives include:

  • Board Self-Assessment
  • Board Education and Training in workshop, seminar or retreat format
  • Board Enrichment in workshop or retreat setting
  • Board Capacity Building for growth and expanding resources 
  • Developing Streams of income
  • Community Development for youth programs
  • and more.
