About Me

I’m Tony Bowick: Lead Navigator of Auxano, Husband, Father, & Pastor

This is my personal blog, intended to serve the reader by talking honestly about things that can tend to be complex and cloudy. I want to provide a place where there can be a dialogue around topics that are important, interesting, or amusing. Particularly, I want this blog to be an interactive space where we can learn and implement our learning around the praxis of our life.

Much of what it means to be a Christian is centered around what we believe – and because intellectuals can compartmentalize so well, our beliefs may become mere shadows without substance (theology, philosophy, intellectual learning) that never permeate to the actionable habits of daily life. Having lived in the Executive Pastor role, my heart is to resource and support people living in the world of strategic implementation and integration. My goal is to post a new blog for discussion and debate once a month. I also host an online video interview/webinar once a quarter through Google+ Hangouts.

I started my professional life in the computer industry as a systems analyst, where I designed informational structures for the government and corporations along the East coast, serving as informational advisor for various entities, including the US Army and the British liaison to the Pentagon. From there I changed gears to pursue a career in Design and Marketing, while investing my professional skills in ministry where time allowed.

After moving from Atlanta to Orlando in 2001, God shifted my focus to vocational church ministry to lead as Pastor of Community Development and Discipleship. With the synergy of my professional and spiritual gifts, I was attracted to the Executive Pastor and Teaching Pastor roles, leveraging my talents and passions to begin consulting with organizations and churches around growth management and leadership culture. From there, it was a perfect progression to Auxano, helping church leaders navigate growth challenges with Vision Clarity.

I am an internally motivated and self-centered man that spends a great deal of time trying to achieve escape velocity from my internal world into the greater space of shared relationships and external motivations. My lovely wife cherishes my strength and gentle nature, while challenging my self-reliance and passivity. She protects the solitude I need to recharge, but shatters my isolation.

My two boys expose my playful nature, and we love exploring all kinds of games together. They are 3 and 5. We enjoy evenings together as a family playing XBOX, iPad, Chutes & Ladders, or Super Monkey Squad Attack (they just attack me repeatedly and I throw them on the couch, the bed, or a pile of pillows). We live in Houston, TX where we attend Clear Creek Community Church.

I am a gadget-geek that revels in the beauty of complex puzzles, informational structures, and relational systems. I have an ongoing infatuation with infographics and their creators. My amazing wife, Abbie, traded a successful career in Architecture to invest in our family and two boys.
