"I have been positioned in places of leadership since my beginnings as a platoon leader in the military. I come alive when I am surrounded by leaders, no matter what arena of life they represent. I have been given the honor in many international settings to speak to leaders and pastors. I am able to pull from over two decades of life experience as a senior pastor; which enables me to be relevant and empowering. I place myself in very vulnerable positions as I share real-life experiences and raw truths that I've encountered over the years. Because leaders are central to my passion, the energy, conviction, and faith to overcome any obstacle is dominant in every message." ~Jodie
Jodie is currently available to teach on the leadership topics listed below. A fun way to equip, inspire, and affirm your leaders is through a leadership retreat or conference. Jodie can also teach your helps ministers in any of these areas as well.
The Journey at End of Life Workshop
As a chaplain for the health care system, Jodie has witnessed a tremendous void. The most spiritual time in a person's life is when they are facing the end of life. Yet, many clergy do not have the tools and resources needed for this sacred time. Jodie has a passion for bringing these tools to the local church, to help both clergy and lay leaders effectively reach those in their final season. Jodie shares from a wealth of experience in this area. She too, was never trained when she attended Bible College to meet the unique needs of end of life. This one day workshop will leave you feeling charged and empowered to meet the needs of those facing end of life.
"Pastor Jodie has been a tremendous blessing to RHEMA Colombia over the years. Her passion and zeal for the Lord are contagious. She is a seasoned minister who preaches under a powerful anointing. The short-term mission groups which she leads are well prepared and are a great help in reaching Colombia for the Lord. We thank God for her heart for world missions and her obedience to the Great Commission."
~ Pastor John Romick, RHEMA Colombia
"I have had a call to the nations since my early twenties. My very first missions trip was to the Philippines, where I spent six weeks. I traveled extensively into the mountains of Baguio and out to the islands of Samar, teaching, preaching, and praying for the sick and those desiring salvation. Since then, I have never stopped bringing the life-changing gospel to nations around the world. My favorite way to travel is by taking teams of individuals with me and exposing them to God in third-world countries. Team members are equipped and empowered to share the gospel to the poorest of the poor. They NEVER return the same. It has been my experience that when a church has a thriving missions focus, it generates a synergy that would not otherwise be there. It’s a huge win for everyone." ~Jodie

I am not intimidated by the varied aspects of youth culture. God has given me the ability to see the gifts, the potential, and the passion within students, whether they are poor, confused sexually, arrogant, preppy, or withdrawn. I love the challenge that students place on me as a speaker." ~ Jodie
