Presence Point® equips leaders to intentionally live into their calling as shepherds in the lives of those they lead, and partners with multipliers to do the same within their sphere of influence.
Presence Point® is grounded in the intersection of three pivotal elements of leadership. It’s only when Provision, Presence, and Protection are intertwined that you can truly fulfill your calling as shepherd and act as a shielder to those you lead.

BRING THE SHEPHERD LEADERSHIP MODEL TO YOUR ORGANIZATION
Presence Point® will challenge you to lean hard into your leadership role and seek to fulfill your calling as shepherd in the lives of those you influence and impact.
Our goal is to facilitate an experience that helps define what shepherding looks like specifically for you right where you live, work, worship, and volunteer — allowing for confidence in your ability to lead those around you. It’s our honor to walk alongside you personally in a coaching role, organizationally in a consulting role, or should you wish to multiply the shepherding message, we’ll partner with you and supply what you need for that journey!
Our deepest desire is to equip you to take up the task that was meant for you, and you alone, so you can live deeply into your calling as shepherd in the lives of those you influence and impact.

VP of Multiplier Relationships & Content Development
Jackie joined Presence Point® in 2023. Although she originally hails from Southern Indiana, she represents the Presence Point team from her home base of Medford, Oregon, in the USA. As her title suggests, Jackie’s top priorities are to provide ongoing support to shepherd leadership multipliers around the world and assist with developing biblically based content such as 30-Day Challenges, Bible studies, and devotionals. If you’ve joined the Presence Point Global Prayer Call, then you’ve met Jackie and may know that this global connection is one of her responsibilities. She’s so good at relating to people from a variety of cultural backgrounds! Prior to joining our team, Jackie honed her leadership and writing skills in non-profit healthcare as Chief Quality Officer, in Christian higher education as xxxxxx, and in church women’s ministry in leadership and Bible study development. She is graciously and patiently supported by her husband of 28 years, Stefan, and by their two grown children, who have ministries and growing families of their own. Oh, and we mustn’t forget her biggest fan and most loyal coworker, Cooper the yellow lab. Be sure to watch for Cooper in Zoom calls with Jackie!
