Julie has always had a passion for growing healthy organizations, and she has dedicated much of the last 24 years to that very task. After spending many years focused on growing her own successful business in mortgage lending and real estate in California, Julie began her service in ministry in 2007. Working at Saddleback Church enabled her to use her gifts to help lead the church, training ministry leaders and staff at all 19 campuses and as well as 1000s of churches through the Purpose Driven network. Julie has helped develop and supervise small and large church staff and has helped churches from many denominations, from all over the world, with the setting and execution of strategic goals. Her latest role being called to serve as Executive Pastor in a local Colorado church. Julie’s infectious passion for Jesus and His Bride comes across just as much as her knowledge and excitement for building strong, long-lasting teams.
