 Coaching provides a safe space beyond the walls of the church for pastors or leaders to turn for insight and growth. Healthy leaders make for healthy churches. 

Coaching is . . .

  • A pathway to spiritual formation: making the changes you want in your life and leadership.
  • A process that develops humility, confidence, focus, and creativity. Freedom to experiment and dream.
  • An intentional way to set aside room for God to speak.

Coaching helps . . .

  • Discover deep-down values and priorities, which clarifies vision and calling
  • Rest beside still waters by having a place to explore questions and conversation.
  • Understand a new paradigm of gentle-but-confident leadership for the church.
  • Learn the counter-cultural skills of adaptive leadership.
  • Set values instead of priorities, and let values guide your choices.

How to Launch the Coaching Process . . .

  • Ask whether you're comfortable on Skype, phone, or face-to-face.
  • Use the Contact Page to get started.
  • Set up a Connect Call (it's free) as a time for reflection and guided questions to help identify areas of growth or need.
  • Select a coaching package that provides the time and space for coaching to make a difference.
