Who provides Parish Renewal Services?
Our Team of Consultants provides successful methods that have been proven effective first-hand in our own wide variety of experiences as church leaders, parish staff members, ministry volunteers, and business professionals. Your parish or organization will be matched up with the team members whose expertise will best suit your particular situation. We also offer home-based retreats for wounded parishioners where the parish itself is not yet ready to face its problems and find Christ-centered solutions.
Our core staff includes:

Co-founder, Business Manager, and Marketing Director
Bob has long had the dream and felt the call to help rebuild the Church through the healing of its members. Once very active in the technology field, managing and owning several computer and integration companies, he left the industry to fulfill his dream. He is currently the Music Director and the Director of Parish Life for a thriving parish in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. He is also the developer and publisher of www.psalms.ws and has an active Contemporary Catholic music ministry. He specializes in how music affects the brain for emotional healing and spiritual restoration.
Before going full-time in ministry, Bob served several years as a core leader in Bible studies and small group communities, and has served on two Pastoral Councils. He brings to PRS his skills in music therapy, retreat environment planning, team management, conflict resolution through healthy communication, and effective leadership styles. His greatest desire is to empower others to find an active and positive relationship with God and with each other within their faith community.
