Pastor Dave's primary goal for creating this eBook is to help you clarify your thoughts about leadership by crafting your own Leadership Point of View. A Leadership Point of View is your personal “elevator pitch” that explains your unique leadership journey - your vision, values, goals, and expectations as a leader. One of the most important things you can do as a leader is to share information about yourself with your team.

~ Dennis Shriver - Mission Viejo, CA

“Everything you said was deeply appreciated.”

TESTIMONIALS

In a broad sense, the term “celebrant” simply refers to one who celebrates anything. An InSight Certified Celebrant is a person who has been trained and certified through InSight to meet the needs of families during their time of loss and to celebrate the life of the deceased. A Celebrant will meet with the family to offer guidance and consulting while planning a personalized and meaningful funeral to honor the loved one, as opposed to taking a “cookie cutter” approach to funerals. A Celebrant will have a Family Meeting Time for sharing of stories and memories. A Celebrant has a wide library of resources for readings, music and other special ceremonies to help the family design a service that honors the life.

Celebrants will work directly with the funeral director on the arrangements and elements of the service and are dedicated to the notion of providing a tribute that reflects the lifestyle and beliefs of the individual. Your service can have any elements, music and readings that are right for you and for your family.
