Coaching and Mentoring
We coach and mentor a variety of leaders - mostly church starters, pastors, entrepreneurs and organizational leaders who are (or once were) passionate about cultivating God's shalom in/through their communities and spheres of influence. Journeying in faith as a leader, especially in these turbulent times, requires resilience and the capacity to navigate many joys and heartaches. At times, it gets messy, lonely and even life-sapping. We try to be present with leaders over the long haul, in seasons of consolation and in seasons of desolation. It's our joy to walk alongside as co-discerners who help leaders tap into their values, strengths, spiritual practices, guiding convictions, and all the wells of goodness God has placed within them and before them.
We design and facilitate leadership assessment processes to help churches, denominations and mission agencies discern the best fit for their leaders, Generally, these assessments are retreat-style, multi-day events led by a trained assessment team. We also contour shorter discernment events for individuals or couples. Our experience is particularly deep in assessing entrepreneurial leaders, including church planters.
Training and Writing
We offer training and curriculum development contoured to the needs of our clients. Ann's specialty is in training groups and organizations in how to conduct effective assessments. She also trains assessors. Dan's background and training suit him to help pastors, church planters and missioning leaders both to flourish and to lead well - see About Dan (scroll to bottom) for more on Dan's credentials and books.
We have many years of experience in missional leadership, having been involved in point leadership of grassroots initiatives (church plants and missional networks), established churches, and missional organizations. We have also lived and ministered cross-culturally. This history gives us latitude in the kind of support we can provide. We are happy to hear your story and see what we can co-craft to be of greatest help to you.

Why Artesia ReSourcing ?
At its core the Christian gospel or "good news" involves an invitation into the dynamic community of the Trinity. That's why we designed our logo around a Celtic water knot, with the three cascading waves denoting the living water flowing from Father, Son and Spirit! We’re convinced that helping leaders engage the life of God in Christ through the Spirit is key to their leadership health, growth and sustainability. At the same time, we are convinced that leaders can also find increased satisfaction and effectiveness when they draw upon the resources, wisdom and encouragement of others who have walked similar paths of point leadership. We’ve named our business Artesia Resourcing because we are all about energizing leaders through both these means.
