The impact of Les’ services has been felt by all whom he’s worked with. According to The Rev. Brian Smith, Holy Trinity, Syracuse: “Les helped us engage our congregation, change our leadership, and change course toward vibrant engagement. His insights helped our congregation shift from a culture where people knew their opinions didn’t count to one where they felt their opinions mattered. He guided us through a new leadership election process that risked dividing our congregation, and ultimately helped people engage in a way that made them feel like they were essential to solving our congregation’s problems and creating an extraordinary future. After working with Les to develop strategies of vibrant engagement, our congregation has turned from a decline to spiritual, numerical and financial growth.”
