A real gift!
Ken’s natural gifts enable him to be a highly effective agent of transformational change. His mind is keen and agile and his manner is warm, genuine and amiable. He thoroughly understands very different points of view and can relate well to individuals who fervently hold contrasting positions. His combined intellectual and relational abilities enable him to facilitate positive change among individuals in situations where there has been intractable conflict.
Ken’s ability to hear where the people actually are in relation to the material presented is uncanny, and his knowledge of both resources and people allow him to hear the necessary next steps, and attend to them. This enables the people present to connect to the material from where they are, feeling affirmed in the knowledge they bring to the table.
Ken is the quintessential transformational community builder. He understands where congregations and dioceses get stuck, and he really gets how to get them unstuck. I have experienced Ken firsthand in the act of coaching over one hundred church folk into a clearer and more fruitful understanding of their incarnate identity and mission. His zeal for building “incarnational Christian community” is contagious.
Ken is a joy to work with. We invited Ken Howard to our Leadership Retreat to share with us demographic information about our neighborhood. We thought we knew what he was going to say, but we were so wrong! His information was eye-opening and called us to completely reconsider our efforts in reaching out to our community.
We are looking forward to working with Ken and FaithX more in the near future because this was such a great experience.
