Effective board leadership is primary to the health of a church. By providing consultations, training, and coaching on elders, governance, conflict management, mission-vision-values, and a host of other topics, the Alliance Northwest field staff can help posture your Elder Board team to understand its role and contribute to the overall health and effectiveness of the church. 

Terry made changing our church governance structure as seamless and painless as possible. He is wise and strategic and knows the many mines that need to be avoided. He has also served as a valued mentor in helping me to fully embrace [a healthy governance] model. I can’t recommend Terry highly enough.
