Meet Carey O'Connor

Most of Carey’s early leadership experiments were developed growing up as the middle of 10 children.  She began her career 20 years ago, launching and directing leadership and discipleship programs for Native American youth and young adults on the Navajo Nation.

After serving in multiple staff roles, Carey currently serves as co-lead pastor of Christian Life Fellowship - focusing on vision, strategy, and leadership development. She navigated a 3-year transition of leadership from a long tenured pastor while overseeing a culture shift. She is passionate about helping other churches lead through healthy transitions. Carey works with organizations facilitating leadership workshops, one-on-one coaching, strategic planning and leadership talks. She currently serves on advisory teams for discipleship strategies in cross cultural ministries and is passionate about seeing the Kingdom of God advance through disciple making movements throughout the world. 

Carey and her husband, Jeff, live and work together in Port Edwards, Wisconsin, raising their 5 kids while restoring their 115 year-old Victorian farmhouse fixer upper.

We came to Carey for help in preparing our organization for change and growth.  

Carey is very gifted in communication and is quick to grasp a vision. She helped us identify where we are as an organization now and target where we are going. She helped us draw out our strengths as a team and identify the skill areas we need more help in. Carey is a very determined, energetic leader; coaching comes natural to her.

Working with Carey has been one of the best things I've done for myself and also for my career. Carey has been so helpful in helping me find my strengths as a leader and teaching me how to use those skills in leadership. It's been incredible to find someone who has been able to dig in and truly help me become a better version of myself.
