There are less than 50 Certified Church Consultants in the United States! Be sure you are working with a qualified consultant like myself.
While there are many different types of coaching, my focus is in the area of Christian Leadership. My goal is to meet you where you are on your leadership journey and to help you take the next step.
Here are some quotes and definitions of coaching which may help you understand this type of coaching and the differences between coaching and other disciplines. (mentoring, counseling, consulting, etc…)
“Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
International Coaching Federation (ICF)
“Coaching is not reactive looking back; it’s proactive looking ahead. It is not about healing; it’s about growing. It focuses less on overcoming weaknesses and more on building skills and strengths.”
“Here is how I define coaching: As a coach, I help people get the results they want by bringing out the best in them. I’ll also explain that coaching isn’t about fixing people or solving problems, rather coaching is a developmental or discovery-based process. Similar to athletic coaches, we further develop the skill and talent inherent in the people we coach.”

Founder and President,
Between where you are currently and where you want to be is a gap.
Effective coaching can help you to close that gap.
