Phil Graybeal is committed to equipping Christian leaders to change the world. He served as a Christian school teacher for three years and Headmaster for 22 years while earning a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. Since starting Graybeal and Associates, LLC in 2001, he has traveled widely both nationally and internationally as a full-time consultant to non-profit organizations. His objective is to help create organizational environments that will increase the likelihood of the right people doing the right things in the right way at the right time for the right reasons so that the right results will be achieved for the glory of God.

While multiple services are offered, Dr. Graybeal's primary emphasis is training boards of non-profits to understand and implement the Policy Governance® system of leadership. After successfully using Policy Governance® in the context of the 1260-student private Christian school that he led, Graybeal felt compelled to tell others of the benefits of the model. He received the highest level of training offered directly by the model's designer Dr. John Carver ( and has been assisting non-profits (Christian schools, churches, missions agencies, para-church organizations) ever since with their pilgrimage toward governing excellence.

Graybeal served for several years as a board member of the International Policy Governance® Association ( and has written governance-related articles that have been published in several nation-wide journals. He frequently teaches workshops at regional conventions around the country.

Phil and his wife Elaine have three married children—Crystal, Jon, and Alicia. The Graybeals are active in church and community service.
