Senior Associate Consultant

Mary is senior associate consultant at FaithX focusing on strategic missional consulting, and co-developer of the Mentored Missional Journey program.

She served three ELCA congregations in the suburbs of Chicago that included a small church turn-around or redevelopment, discipleship pastor in a large congregation and a solo call following a mission developer. Mary then served for seven years as the Associate Director for New Congregations at the ELCA. Most recently, she served as program manager on the Episcopal Church’s Genesis new ministry development project.

In addition, Mary opened a yoga studio ministry, Divine Power Yoga, in 2010. Divine Power Yoga provided an opportunity to help people connect body, mind and spirit in an intentional way.

She now offers consulting, coaching and training for clergy as well as for denominational bodies and new and existing congregations. She lives in Naperville, IL with her husband, Kent, who is a holistic chiropractor and functional medicine physician.
