Nonprofit and church consulting for 21st century organizations

About Crows Feet Consulting

Crows Feet Consulting works with faith communities and nonprofits to uncover valuable organizational data and use that intelligence to foster greater understanding and self-awareness. When leadership teams, staff and congregants have a common awareness of the true state of their system, it’s more likely they will work together to achieve a sustainable future.

We work with all denominations of faith communities, including seminaries, middle judicatories, synods and all sizes of churches, as well as nonprofits and libraries. Our team provides church consulting, nonprofit consulting and conflict management services, including:

Organizational intelligence: Central traits of organizations, including their internal structures, processes and people, as well as their behavior in different social and economic contexts.


Our Approach to church consulting

We start by asking big questions – the right questions – to get to the heart of an organization and its people. What is working, and what is not? How have things been done in the past, and should that change? How might internal conflict be impeding progress?Three circles, overlapping, with the word data in one, inspired imagination in the second, and core values in the third

We help people get to the point of what they are feeling and thinking, and accept it in a gracious way. We ensure the right conversations between the right people to streamline thinking and create clarity.  Our strength is reframing perspectives to elevate a true awareness of what is going on. With self-awareness, an organization is set free to progress unified in its mission.

Our Mission

To cultivate vital self-aware organizations who are able to fulfill their mission to the world.

Our Vision

Self-aware, sustainable systems
