Rev. Tom Brackett
Manager for New Church Starts and Missional Initiatives, Presiding Bishop’s Staff
Tom serves on the Episcopal Church’s Presiding Bishop’s staff as the Manager for New Church Starts and Missional Initiatives. Ordained for 41 years, he now consults with Bishops and their teams around the world, putting him in the unique position to host conversations about the future Church as it emerges among us. As both priest and Executive Coach, Tom companions these leaders to celebrate their successes and to prayerfully and strategically explore the new possibilities ahead of them. Colleagues describe him as a compassionate and inspiring presence, making every voice heard and important in both the discovery and discernment process. One of Tom’s passions is hosting strategic conversations and creating the safe space needed for people to share their stories of recent encounters with the Spirit. His work has been informed by Otto Scharmer, Roger Schwarz, Christina Baldwin and Herminia Ibarra. His approaches to facilitation are reverent and behavioralist in practice. Curiosity, compassion and appreciation are the underlying values that shape Tom’s coaching work.
