Alan views his role as a generosity coach to be one that empowers. He brings the knowledge, experience, listening and motivational skills needed to help others realize their goals. In the last fifteen years alone, he has led over 125 successful church generosity initiatives, applying his unique skills and insights as a layperson and coach to the training of God's real life stewards.
Excited by his work in growing churches, Alan's own faith and commitment is bolstered by the Generis approach to fundraising as a spiritual quest. Personal relationships are forged quickly, he says, due to the amount of time and energy he spends with each congregation he serves. In fact, Alan's success and devotion have been heartily reciprocated by his clients, who have engaged him to lead subsequent fundraising campaigns. His clients praise his methods of motivating others to see stewardship as an inspiring 'whole life' challenge and not a short-term monetary obligation.
A social studies teacher and baseball coach for eight years prior to becoming a full-time fundraising consultant, Alan earned his Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and his Master of Science in Education from Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro.
Alan and Pam met at UNCP and have been married for over 20 years. He has a son, Jackson, and a daughter, Anabelle. Alan and his family attend The Parish Church in Alpharetta, GA. Alan enjoys all things baseball.
