I have Coached and Consulted with a variety of individuals and ministry teams : • New Church Planters • Children’s Pastors • Youth Pastors • Multisite Campus Pastors and Teams • Christian Executives • Non Staff Ministry Team Leaders • Well Established Pastors and Churches It has been my privilege to see God use strategic Coaching and Consulting in a high impact way in the lives and ministries of the leaders that I have partnered with. It has really been a blessing to collaborate with leaders, and often times their staff, to navigate through some tough terrain and have an opportunity to help them: • Get unstuck from their current position and overcome growth barriers. • Build their confidence in specific areas of leadership and team development. • Expand their vision for the future of their ministry and for God. • Fulfill their dreams for the ministry and feel safe coloring outside the lines. • Unlock their true potential as a leader, friend and ministry partner to others. • Increase their strategic skills, energy efficiency and personal organization. • Move through tough transitions, and various stages of life and ministry. • Increase accountability and “push back” to their ideas and thinking. • Take strategic, practical and consistent action steps toward their goals & more. I know every leader prays for his ministry or organization to be healthy, vibrant and growing and I would love to be a part of that. I would be glad to connect you with some other Pastor’s and ministry leaders I have partnered with if you like, and you can hear from them directly if they have found Coaching and Consulting with me to be beneficial and worth their time and investment. If you have been running the race for a while and are getting tired, frustrated, stuck in a slower gear than you want to be - or maybe things are really good, but you have hit a stubborn wall somewhere, then I would suspect that you could use some encouragement and support as you continue to find your way to where you are called to go for the Kingdom.
