Welcome to the Boncoeur Collaborative!

I am honored that you have chosen to visit us and learn a bit more about our vision and mission. But, before I expound on those important elements, let me share a bit about myself and our name.

The word, Boncoeur is my last name in French and translates as “good heart/of good heart.” What a fortune and a challenge it is to have a name that reminds me of the importance of keeping my head clear and my heart right! When I think back on thirty years of professional work in various sectors, including church, para-church, not-for-profit, and higher education, I have always sought to do is to lead and serve others with a pure heart and honorable intentions. Although I am sure that I have missed the mark more often than I might imagine, my passion and commitment have remained the same-to honor and serve every person with excellence.

There is an African Proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Both parts of the proverb have merit, meaning, and benefit, but I believe that something special happens when individuals come together around a common goal or shared vision. Collaboration is an invaluable key to organizational success, so we emphasize the “we” as much as the “me” here at the Boncoeur Collaborative.

At the end of the day, whether you are a part of my mentorship circle, I am leading your team in a vision casting exercise, preaching a sermon, or teaching a class; I want you to leave our time feeling known, and understood, and valued.

As you peruse this site, I hope you will feel inspired, encouraged, and motivated to step into your best season. May God bless you and keep you today and always!
