“Playing starts with listening. It is a lot more fun to create with a team than to create alone. Your primary role is to provide a foundation for other players to flourish. Playing requires a combination of technical skill and situational awareness. And you may or may not be visible, but everyone should know you are there!”
In 2000, Curt earned a Presidential/Key Executive MBA at the Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University. He taught for several years as an adjunct professor in BIOLA University’s Masters in Organizational Leadership program on nonprofit leadership and management. He speaks and writes on business and leadership issues, based on his personal journey integrating his faith with his work.

Debbie firmly believes that in every situation in life there is a spiritual perspective to seek and find. No matter our vocation or circumstances, God is inviting us to partner with him in our activities. When we accept that invitation, our life is more free, full, and fulfilling.
In her career Debbie has experienced this truth as a wife, a full-time mom, a grad student, a nonprofit founder and executive, a curriculum designer, an author, and a spiritual director.
Debbie splits her time between two roles. In her role at Current Strategies, Debbie writes and consults on how Christian leaders can develop greater spiritual awareness and discover how prayer meets action in the workplace. She supports leaders who are interested in practices of personal reflection and retreat as they build deeper relationships with God and their colleagues.
“What if our career was more than a job? What difference would it make if we recognized our work as a calling, a place where God was forming us and inviting us to partner with him?”
Debbie also serves as the Executive Director for Grafted Life Ministries, where she has co-authored 10 formational studies for small groups and published her book “Do You Love Me? Exploring Our Relationships with God and Others.”
In 2007, Debbie completed her MA in Spiritual Formation and Soul Care from Talbot School of Theology, Biola University. She speaks and writes on the intersection of neuroscience, theology, psychology, spirituality and relational attachment.
