Every Wednesday I post a full-length article of actionable ideas designed to challenge your thinking and push you out of your comfort zone. They focus on 5 key areas:
• How to build a staff and governing board of true leaders
• How to plan and preach like you know you’re capable of doing
• How to create an evangelistic culture that gets results and punches through your next growth barrier
• How to inspire generosity in your congregation
• How to achieve peak levels of personal fitness, energy, and productivity by replacing self-sabotaging behaviors with consistent habits that get God-honoring results.
My coaching advice flows out of my daily struggles as a Senior Pastor in the trenches, my 25 years of ministry experience, and the lessons I learn each week in my 12-month coaching relationships with a handful of leaders just like yourself.

About Brian Jones
I’m the founding Senior Pastor of Christ’s Church of the Valley, a church that grew grown from 0 to 2,000+ amazing people in the northwest suburbs of Philadelphia. We’re a church built on converts, 2,300 so far in fact. Our vision is to transform the Philadelphia metro area by growing beyond 5,000 and planting 20 campuses throughout the region.
Before starting this church, I planted a church in Ohio that took off like a rocket and soared from 150 to 150 in four years. 🙂 Before that I was on staff at churches of 300 and 600. And while going through school I preached on the weekends at rural churches of 25 and 50. Simply put, wherever you are, chances are I’ve been there and coached dozens of people just like you through it.
A few other things you might want to know: I’m a graduate of Cincinnati Christian University (B.A.) and Princeton Theological Seminary (M.Div.). I’m the author of four books. I just released my latest book through InterVarsityPress called Finding Favor: God’s Blessings Beyond Health, Wealth and Happiness. I also blog at BrianJones.com to help Christians live thoughtful and courageous lives. My tribe is the “Independent Christian Churches,” an evangelical network of 6,000 churches nationwide.
