Serving in the Senior Leadership and Nonprofit division, Monte leverages his 35+ year professional and ministry career to help match churches and nonprofits with high–capacity leaders and coach them to realize their full potential.

He founded Leadership Clarity in 2014 to more fully leverage the breadth and depth of his unique experience to help leaders clarify vision, align strategy and develop people to maximize their team’s effectiveness. Monte serves ministries and nonprofits around the US through his partnerships with THRIVE360 and Intentional Churches. He also works 1:1 with high–capacity leaders to help identify and develop healthy life rhythms both personally and professionally.

Previously Monte served Real Life Christian Church as Executive Pastor from 2006–2021, overseeing the journey from a single–site church gathering hundreds to a sprawling multi–site ministry gathering thousands. He also provided leadership to strategic ministry partners in Central Florida and around the world. Prior to full time ministry, Monte enjoyed a successful executive career primarily in the attractions industry from 1985–2005.

A lifelong athlete, Monte continues to enjoy playing hockey recreationally. Avid photographers, he and Helaine love just about anything outdoors, traveling, playing games and sharing time with friends.
