I'm Peter Bowden. Specializing in ministry, media, and membership growth, I help leaders learn new skills, strategies, and adapt to our rapidly changing world. 


I'm Peter Bowden. I help people lead and grow thriving congregations, ministries, and justice efforts. Raised a Unitarian Universalists, I train leaders across religious traditions and industries.  

For the 20 years leading up to the pandemic, I also worked as television producer for nationally syndicated PBS Kids shows. Now I'm infusing these media skills into my work with leaders.

If you are interested in ministry, media, and/or membership growth, I'm here to help!

"Peter's training has been a lifeline for me as a minister entering these on-line ministry waters! Thanks to the wisdom that Peter shares - in a very accessible way I might add - I have shifted how we engage with our congregation on a weekly basis and they LOVE it! From concrete skill development to inspiration, video ministry academy helped me feel confident to expand my ministry in ways I had barely considered before. Thanks Peter!" "

"I initially reached out to Peter for help with honing my digital strategy, but I quickly realized his value as a thought partner for many of my professional goals for engineering outreach. With his help, I've been able to significantly improve engagement with my audience online, take advantage of more opportunities, and feel less overwhelmed along the way. And it's been really fun!"
