Nancy Ortberg

Get to know Nancy Ortberg, one of our Gifted for Leadership editorial advisors.

Nancy Ortberg served eight years as a teaching pastor at Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Illinois. During that time she led the Network ministry, helping people identify their spiritual gifts and find a place of service in the church. She also led Axis for the 18- to 20-something generation.

Axis included weekend services of 1,200-1,500 people in their twenties who worshipped together, served the poor, and participated in small-group communities. Nancy is a founding partner of Teamworx2, a consulting firm that works with organizations, helping leaders overcome the team dysfunctions that are obstacles to high performance and work enjoyment. She and her husband, John, live in the Bay Area, CA, and have three children, Laura, Mallory, and John.
