GARY DIEHL SENIOR CONSULTANT
Gary was introduced to the principles of The More-with-Less Church while serving as his home church's site coordinator during a Living Stones Integrated Planning Consultation in 1998. A wide array of leadership responsibilities in his home church over the last thirty-five years has given Gary a hands-on perspective of many ministry functions within the local church.
During his 35-year business career, Gary developed skills in problem solving, leadership dynamics, team development, project management, and strategic planning that he now uses to equip church leaders. In 2001 Gary joined the Living Stones team and began consulting with churches out of a growing conviction that many churches need comprehensive, biblical guidance to become healthy and effective in our rapidly changing world.
Gary currently serves local congregations as a National Coordinator for The Brethren Church North America. He is a frequent speaker for local churches, business gatherings, leadership retreats, men's groups, and civic organizations. Gary and his wife Nancy live in Alliance, Ohio, and have four grown children and four energetic grandchildren.
