Ministry Coaching

Ministry / Church Plant Coaching

I am an author, public speaker and a coach / consultant. One of my specialty areas is ministry consulting and leadership training. In my 19 years of ministry, I have planted several churches and provide oversight for over 20 churches worldwide. The same care I give that network of churches is offered to those who simply need a friend in ministry or a “fresh pair of eyes” on a situation. Whether it’s concerns the 8 strategies of every church or a simple question… I’m here to help. Why? Because I really do care.

As a pastor, I know how tough ministry can be and realize that ministry can be one of the loneliest places. Whether you are just starting, need someone on the outside of your situation to lend an opinion from an unbiased perspective, or find your self discouraged, I am here to help.

If you want to connect and get ongoing ministry coaching we can discuss it at a later time. My promise is that if you choose this route, it wont break the bank. One thing I have learned: There are are no silver bullet solutions.  Every church and every pastor is unique.
