Dennis Gulley – My Story

My name is Dennis Gulley.  I am a husband to Joanne and a father to 5 beautiful girls, the father-in-law to two amazing sons-in-law and Gramps to the best grandson ever!

Joanne and I live in Leduc, Alberta with our two youngest daughters. I am the Lead Teaching Pastor at Leduc Fellowship Church, a growing community of faith with a growing impact in our local setting.

I am also the owner of The Porch Coaching and Consulting, as well as an Associate at the EP Wahl Centre for Leadership Development in Edmonton, giving oversight to the “Growing Healthy Teams Initiative” and as an Adjunct Professor at Taylor Seminary in Edmonton.

I hold a BA degree in English from Portland State University, an MA degree in Educational Leadership from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon, and Associate Certified Coach credentials with the International Coach Federation.

I have been highly involved in training, mentoring, coaching, team building and conflict resolution throughout my 33 years in leadership, and have led and taught in North America, Central America, Europe and Africa.

I am passionate about helping leaders excel in their area of calling and to see them lead exceptionally well from a healthy place personally and in a healthy environment.

I have a very strong passion for coaching teams, as I believe aiding teams to be healthier and more well connected can be one of the greatest tools to provide value and productivity to any organization.

I believe that I have a unique gift and experience mix that allows me to bring much to the table when it comes to consulting and coaching.  I would love to connect with you to talk about how I might assist you in your personal life, ministry life, non-profit leadership, or help develop your team or the leadership board of your organization.

Please reach out to me if you are interested in chatting about how I might come alongside you or your team to help you excel!
