Colleen is the Liaison for the Lausanne Global Council. She works with Lausanne leadership to connect global, mission-minded churches and organizations of influence to Lausanne and to each other while supporting Lausanne in prayer and financial contributions.
In every form her career has taken—counselor, teacher, consultant, college administrator, and coach—the common theme has been the need for change, whether with clients, students, or organizations. Colleen is a mobilizer; she likes working with people and making connections. She also serves on the US National Coordinating Team for Simply Mobilizing, an international organization with the vision to see all God’s people engaged in the world Christian movement by developing a missional worldview.
Colleen is married to Jim, a Presbyterian pastor-teacher-mobilizer in the US and north India and a Lausanne Mentor. They currently reside on the farm where Colleen grew up, north of Baltimore, Maryland.
