At ARC we have committed ourselves to listening deeply for the heart of each person, for the overarching culture of the system with which we are working and most importantly, for God’s leading in whatever situation we are in. For us, this means that each ARC associate be engaged in a life of prayer. It is also means that we enter each situation with our hearts and ears open. Because of our listening we have also learned that there are no standardized approaches to resolving conflict or nurturing changes. Each system is different with its own unique story and challenges. Our job is to discover together with you the way forward that makes sense for you and your community.
When you call on ARC, you are asking us to be a resource for you. We commit to leading with courage and honesty recognizing that while we will sometimes be leading you into hard conversations, we will do so with a spirit of grace and humility.

Our Typical Work Process
From the beginning our intention has been to approach our work from a place of profound spiritual leadership. We are not simply drawing on a learned skillset, but leading from a deeper place. We draw on a deeper source – God’s profound presence – and invite the church to go there as well.
ARC leads people to spiritual growth through the lens of conflict management, church renewal or other issues. We regularly ask our clients: “How are you listening for God?”.
All of our services are custom-tailored to your congregation. As such, each contract and process look a little different, though the framework typically starts with a discussion, moves towards design, and then implementation.
Discussion around your needs and wants for the desired project, your potential milestones and end goals that you are hoping to achieve and your budget for the project.
We work with you to understand your organization and it’s culture so that we can design a process specifically for you.
We implement the process and monitor the success of the project through regular communication with you.
