Receiving on-going coaching has been an indispensible part of maintaining my “edge” and focus as a Senior Pastor. I am constantly being coached and coaching others.
Senior Pastors will hire me to help them craft and execute a multi-faceted personal and congregational growth plan. This will be accomplished through weekly 50-minute conference calls for 12 months. Sometimes all it takes for a leader to help catalyze growth in their church is having a trusted friend by their side each week offering ideas, encouraging them, pushing them to take calculated risks, and saying “here’s what I would do if I were in your shoes.”
Particular attention will be paid to the five things that never leave the plate of an outreach-focused Senior Pastor: Leadership, Preaching, Evangelism, Generosity, and Personal Growth.
Oftentimes all it takes is for a fresh set of eyes to help churches and Senior Pastors see the opportunities that lay before them, and the practical steps needed to seize them.
Senior Pastors and church leaders will hire me to come on-site and provide an objective analysis of their ministry, as well as workable next steps for immediate improvement. Oftentimes I’ll spend intensive time coaching one person, usually the Senior Pastor. Other times I’ll meet with the staff team, governing board, etc.
