Neil brings a maturity and depth of wisdom to his ministry work and the way he pours into the lives of leaders. I have watched this grow in incredible ways over the past several years - leading Neil to a place of ministry where he has a deep passion to empower wholeness in leaders and churches. He's a great listener and a powerful coach. He can be trusted with the most delicate details of ministry life and also as a friend who understands what it is like to be in the trenches.Michael Bischof, D.Min.Founder and President, SOULeader ResourcesAdjunct Professor, Fuller Seminary
Having pastored our local congregation for ten years, Neil knows the work of the ministry inside and out - its joys and its sorrows - and has a passion for the pursuit of spiritual wholeness in pastors, laypersons, and entire congregations. His training in theology and spiritual discipline, combined with his experiences in and out of the church make him uniquely qualified to lead others out of disjointed, spiritual dryness and into the light and life that God intends for His people.... His commitment to God's people and his relentless pursuit of God's desires for them gave me space to be open and broken and to set the foundation for healthy ministry and leadership. I learned more about ministering to people in three years as Neil's associate pastor than in eight years of graduate work in theology and a lifetime in the church.Thomas A.

Neil was a God-send to me at a time of difficult transition in my life. His experience in ministry allows him to come alongside pastors and church leaders who often feel very alone. He is a great listener who is sensitive to the Holy Spirit and his counsel is always grounded in the Scriptures. I have benefited so much from my time with him, the tools and exercises he provided me, and the continual encouragement he so freely offered. Neil constantly reminded me that God was not done with me and encouraged me to step out in faith and pursue new opportunities that were in front of me, always with the reminder to lean in on God's direction and trust in His plan. I highly recommend Neil Anderson. He has become a close friend and I cherish the relationship that the Lord has allowed me to have with him.

My recommendation of Neil Anderson comes from having spent personal time with Neil in a "soul care" process.... He has such a genuine interest in people over process. When you talk to Neil, you can sense his care for you as a person. Neil and I did a book study together, The Emotionally Healthy Leader, and I was encouraged by Neil's transparency and his depth of character and calling.... I will forever be grateful to God and to Neil for the care that he showed me and what I learned from him on how to lead well. If you have a need to know yourself better and to lead from a place of good emotional, mental and spiritual health, Neil can help you.

When I think of people that were an encouragement and help to me and my family through a difficult situation with a problem in a previous church, Pastor Neil Anderson was at the top of the list of most helpful advisors. Pastor Neil truly cares for people and I can't thank him enough for his mentorship and counsel through a difficult trial. He is easy to talk to and knowledgeable in God's Word and would be an incredible asset to any person or team.Rob CoblentzWorship Arts Director, Grace Church of Sahuarita, AZ
