Welcome to My Speaking Page

I've been in your shoes and know how important it is to get just the right speaker for an event. A great speaker not only energizes and equips the room, but also advances the organization. A bad speaker - however talented - makes it all about himself. My goal is for each attendee to leave excited about the future and excited about their engagement with your organization or group. I consider it a sacred trust to stand before any audience, whether 15 people or 1,500.

A Few Thoughts About Me

I love public speaking and have been doing this for more than 20 years. I've spoken to audiences in the thousands and to intimate groups of a dozen. I have appeared on national and international media, ranging from Focus on the Family to The Ramsey Group's True Stewardship Podcast

I have spent most of my career in pastoral ministry, serving as an ordained minister in two churches whose average attendance ranged from 1,000-2,000. I understand the inner-workings of church life and how to synergize my message with your needs. I have also worked in higher education as part of a $1B capital campaign.

I now devote my time to writing and speaking, especially on the intersections of faith and finances.

In 2017, Zondervan (HarperCollins) published my Amazon bestseller The Seven Money Types: Discover How God Wired You to Handle Money.

I have been happily married to my wife, Elizabeth, for sixteen years. We have two children and two adopted dogs. I enjoy fishing, hunting, gardening, coaching baseball, golf and bookstores.

My Most Requested Topics

My pastoral and theological training, combined with my work in strategic project management in higher education fundraising, has prepared me to speak about many topics, but I most often speak on matters related to financial stewardship and the seven money types. 

My most requested topics include the following. Keep in mind that I can present these as a keynote, sermon or workshop. 

The Seven Money Types: In The Seven Money Types workshop, keynote or sermon, I help participants identify their unique money type and guide them through an understanding of the role the seven money types play in the ways they think, feel and behave financially. This experience unleashes confidence in people by giving them the tools and understanding of how they’re designed to use money for good and God in the world, while resolving financial tensions. Filled with laughter and aha! moments, we shatter the walls we often place between God and money. This seminar is ideal for churches seeking to help their people mature in Christian stewardship. I guarantee it’s unlike any other financial workshop, book or class they've ever experienced.

The Seven Streams of Generosity: People give from one of seven primary motivations. In this workshop, I reveal how the seven money types are also the seven streams of generosity that compel people to engage financially with your vision. Drawing from my experience in church stewardship, capital campaigns and scientific research based on the largest study ever conducted on major gift donors, I have designed an experience that will give you the understanding necessary to meet your donors or parishioners where they are and help them engage financially with your vision.

What Others Say - Just a Couple Recent Reviews

Tommy did an amazing job of sharing the concepts of The Seven Money Types at our Compass North America Friends & Family retreat. The content was so insightful and engaging that our attendees raved about it for the remainder of the event. His mix of insight, humor and storytelling led our group to a deeper level of understanding God’s heart in everything we’ve been entrusted. The teachings are especially helpful for better relationships with spouses, family, friends, colleagues, clients and even strangers…truly unique in the stewardship space! Heartily recommend Tommy for your next event!

The Seven Money Types workshop was filled with aha! moments and was empowering and thought-provoking. We left with tips to improve our financial behaviors as well as insights into how we can edify the Body of Christ.
