Whether it be your role as a volunteer in a Church ministry, at a local Hospital, or associated with a Civic or Not-for-profit Organization, you are not just a volunteer! Your time, talent, passion, and presence have an impact on who you interact with. You can be the best public ambassador for your group, or their worst public image nightmare! You can add value to your organization by saving budget dollars that would need to be used to replace your efforts, or you can cause unimaginable waste and extra costs by doing your job/role poorly! Whether you know it or not, you are in the role of leader/ambassador and people are watching, making decisions as to the validity and public opinion of the organization you represent by your demeanor, actions, and words you share with strangers. It may be extra time you offer for free. It may be something to fill your time during the day. It may be fulfilling and feel like you are contributing something back to the public community. But You Are Not Just A Volunteer! Learn what that means, and become the best volunteer you can be!

THE SERVANT LEADER Workbook: $19.99
Leadership is not about Titles, Status, Power, Uniforms, or the Office with a View and Big Desk! It's about Relationships, Relationships, Relationship, and Relationships! The Important Question is, "With Who?" To answer that sincere and important question you have to know, "Who are You?!" Who you are inside regarding Values, Hopes, Dreams, Vision, and Your Historic Story has a great deal to tell who you are and what makes you tick. After discerning that, the next question arises, "What are you being told, and are You listening to a Passionate Call?" From these points we are drawn into relationships and how we manage ourselves and the connections we have with others makes all the difference between our being perceived as either The Good, The Bad, or The Ugly; in the minds and perceptions of others. If Someone Leads, and Nobody Follows; They're Only Taking a Walk!

We each have a three dimensional presence and view of the world around us through 3D lenses. We have Physical Presence, Logical Presence as well as Emotional/Spiritual Presence. We cannot ignore any of these perspectives of life when functioning as Leaders and making crucial decisions that impact our daily life, our work and relationship of those we know and love. Let us help you put on the 3D glasses that are extremely important in a time of extreme and rapid change, when others may be wearing Blinders or Rose-Colored-Glasses.

Learn that "Dragon Slaying" today does not take place in caves, on castle walls or to rescue fair maidens!

Learn what new and measurable evidence now exists in the field of Emotional Intelligence and Emotional Systems Theory that applies to the critical role of leadership when faced with rapid rates of major change, economic downturns, demographic shifts, and maintaining healthy relationships with peers, staff members, and clients/customers that we interact with on a daily basis. How do you tame the beast that wants to turn you into the reptile you can become, eating your young and anyone that is near you? You can, "Tame the Dragon Within You!" It only takes some time and insight to start the soothing of the beast! I am willing to help you discern how that takes place in your life.

Epiphany had been a struggling mission in Burnet, Texas. We invited Steve Rottgers to lead us in "Ripe for the Harvest." As a result, we found increased awareness in local community ministries as well as in the ministry in the church itself. We have achieved Parish Status and we are blessed with many people giving of their time and talent in the community and in the Church. This program fired up many of the people in Epiphany! The Rev. Ted Hervey Rector, Church of the Epiphany Burnet, Texas

Christ Church initiated the "Ripe for the Harvest" in 2007. We were looking for a particular program to help us brake out from a mold of being a pastoral-sized church and increase our overall total giving. We found "Ripe for the Harvest" to be a unique hands on program of complete congregational interaction. Through a process of a month, we were able to incorporate our past, present and future mission for our church. We have now grown in ASA past 150 and were able to prioritize as a congregation where we need to shape our budget presently and for future needs. It has been an exciting adventure in faith to chart and complete priorities on the Super List! Thanks Steve for this opportunity! The Rev. Bruce Bonner Rector, Christ Church Cedar Park, Texas

"Ripe for the Harvest is an excellent integration of the prominent, useful principles and procedures that have emerged from organizational development research over the past 30 years. Your program is comprehensive, clear and well founded in major images of the scriptures. It is really an impressive composite of theory for planning and motivation in the parish. Congratulations!" The Rev. Dr. Arlin Rothauge Episcopal Church Development Officer-Retired, Founder of Seabury Institute, Evanston, Illinois

"I have known Lutheran Pastors who have attended presentations of "Ripe for the Harvest" and have regained hope and confidence to return to their congregations and have seen successful results and new hope come to life as a result of applying this process.
