The Road to Kingdom
           - Building Leadership

Our Church is suffering…from the effects of fighting the global pandemic…and  from a leadership crisis.

When combined, this does not bode well for the Church unless She is willing to embrace voices from many walks of life and areas of expertise, men and women, who can provide the knowledge, understanding, wisdom and right judgment necessary in these demanding times.  We’re offering our voice and expertise to form and support leaders, equipped for times such as these.

“But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant.”

Mark 10:43
From five consultants to two…from adult faith formation to leadership…from then to now. In 2005 God called together five women who had been or were serving the Church. We shared scripture, we learned of one another’s gifts and together we heard God begin to call forth what would become ConSpirita Consulting Network.
From the vocation to serve individual parishes, to a corporation serving parishes and dioceses, we are hearing a new call now…the call to leadership development.
God is calling us to combine our education, experience and charisma to equip the Church to face her crises with grace, intellectual prowess and skill.

“Those who are the greatest among you should take the lowest rank, and the leader should be like a servant.”

Luke 22:26

A Leader’s Questions

  • What unique set of resources has God collected in your parish?
  • How are your parishioners being transformed by affiliation with your parish?
  • Who or what needs the light of Christ within your parish boundaries?
ConSpirita has the expertise to develop leaders who grasp concepts and develop skills to cooperate with the Lord in building the Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.

About Us

Deborah Stollery

Margie Sullivan

I have 25 years experience serving Catholic parishes and dioceses in the mid-Atlantic, 16 years as a co-owner of this consulting firm, 7 years as a monthly columnist for the Diocese of Richmond’s Office of Christian Formation, and countless hours serving pastors, lay ecclesial ministers and the people of God, developing leadership, forming faith, and inspiring others.  I write, speak, coach, and thought-partner through custom-designed and developed work.

I know a God of surprises, a God that interrupts one life and calls to another.  From simply agreeing to be a sponsor, to directing RCIA, to becoming a Spiritual Director and a co-owner of this business, all while working full-time in the health care industry, God has been calling and preparing me for this very time.  Retired now from health care, I bring my passion for healing, my penchant for technology and my experience of leadership gone awry to our Church, in need of wisdom, counsel and right judgment.
