Effective Leadership Amidst Complexity

Leading isn't just about what you say. It's about understanding, compassion, and connecting at a deeper level. But how do you navigate the complex maze of personalities and emotions?

Lead with Authenticity and Compassion

Become the leader your congregation needs. Grow in self-awareness and self-knowledge with compassionate, authentic, spiritually mature leadership.

Embark on a transformative spiritual journey. With increased self-awareness through the Neuro-based Enneagram, and the Holy Spirit as counselor, discover your divine path and overcome barriers to spiritual growth.

Seeking God in a Secular World

Navigating faith and finding God's presence becomes increasingly challenging in a world that often seems indifferent or even hostile to spiritual pursuits.

Guidance in a Complex World

In a world that often feels overwhelming, rely on the Neuro-based Enneagram, committed discipleship, and Email Evangelism, all illuminated by the Holy Spirit, to bring clarity, connection, and purpose to your church.

We know that God has a unique and amazing plan for each person and through each person and leader, for each church as well.

The Neuro-based Enneagram is a powerful tool to enhance connections between people, 
increase personal self-awareness, and improve communication.

"Search me, O God, and know my heart. Try me and know my thoughts. See if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." Psalm 139:23-24, ESV

"Debbie is a woman of integrity with a profound love for Jesus and a profound love for others. With discernment from God she desires to see others grow in knowing God and knowing themselves for the sake of wholeness and healing." 

~Heather Canup, Pastor for Discipleship

In a time when personal connections can feel fleeting, we always need deeper spiritual connection. 

The Neuro-based Enneagram offers a bridge – a way to deeply understand the individual spiritual needs of your congregation members.

As members grow in self-awareness and self-knowledge their discipleship journey becomes a transformative experience.

The role of a leader extends beyond directives. It's about empathetically nurturing, guiding, and understanding. 

With the Neuro-based Enneagram, discover the intricate facets of your personality and those of your team. Develop the self-awareness that is crucial for growth and authentic leadership, and learn to lead with genuine compassion and wisdom.


As a leader your invitation is to follow Jesus and walk with the Holy Spirit in loving God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength... and your neighbor as yourself. To do this effectively, you also need to grow in self-knowledge.

That's where both Integrated Discipleship and the Neuro-based Enneagram come in, through discipleship coaching, spiritual direction, and Email Evangelism.

Now you can know Jesus more clearly, love Jesus more dearly, and follow Jesus more nearly.

It's time to discover that God is already with you, right now and in every moment, with love so great, you can't even imagine it (Eph. 3:14-21).

It's time to discover your true leadership potential.

    Neuro-based Enneagram

    What is the Neuro-based Enneagram?

    With the Neuro-based Enneagram, you can discover your hidden, unconscious triggers that disrupt your relationships and prevent you from achieving your goals.

    Instead, explore how, in Christ, you are enough, you are appreciated, you are loved, you are unique, you are good, you are safe, you are fully equipped for life, and you are powerful in your authentic self!

    What is Integrated Discipleship?

    Do you want to see your church to thrive, and have a positive impact in your community? Do you want to see your individual church members to grow in faith and spiritual maturity, gradually becoming more like Christ?

    Integrated Discipleship is an approach to help your church grow... in faith, in spiritual maturity, in service to others, and in numbers.


    "How does Email Evangelism help members grow both spiritually and in attendance?"


    About Deborah Owen and Inside Out Ministries

    After attending church my entire life and doing "all the things" (choirs, youth groups, handbells, Orff instruments, missions, Bible studies, church plays, etc., etc...), I felt like there was still something missing from my life. I was spiritually thirsty.

    That all changed a few years ago when someone began to disciple me one-on-one. That transformative experience, along with several other learning and growing opportunities, helped me see that I was being invited to a deeper love and more mature spiritual relationship with God.

    Accepting God's invitation led to new discoveries about myself through the Enneagram. Then came a commitment to follow God's call to share Integrated Discipleship through Inside Out Ministries with tens of thousands of other "church-attenders" who are also spiritually thirsty.

    Love God, Love others, Make disciples

    Are you discovering your purpose?

    -- 86% of Americans (6 out of 7 adults) believe there is a universal, shared purpose of human life, and 2 out of every 3 (66%) believes they have a "unique, God-given calling or purpose."

    -- Yet fewer than 20% of the 71% who consider themselves to be Christians adopt the biblical view that our purpose is to know, love, and serve God.

    According to a Cultural Research Study at Arizona Christian University


    “The disconnect is staggering. As a nation we yearn for purpose and calling... Americans hold on to these basic biblical ideas of what makes human existence meaningful, yet, at the same time, we refuse to recognize reliance on God or His existence when talking about human success or purpose.”

    ~Dr. George Barna, CRC Director of Research and author of the American Worldview Inventory 2020, commenting on the statistics, above
