Rev. George Brookover

I have fifty-five years of pastoral experience. As an ordained Lutheran (ELCA), I served Holy Comforter Lutheran/Kingwood, Texas for three decades. This encompassed be church planter to leading a staff of nine ordained and lay leaders. From 1996-2014 I served my ELCA jurisdiction as an Intentional Interim Pastor. In 1997 Brookover Leadership was established for training and leading clergy and laity in several denominations.

Utilization of the Myers-Briggs instrument with clergy, paid and volunteer staff and organizational leaders equips everyone for understanding how every individual performs in keeping with their “type.”  Recognizing and utilizing the specific typologies enhances outcomes. And it also deflects attempting to make everyone perform in the same or identical form or fashion.
