Sometimes leaders need a Barnabas for encouragement or Paul as a pastor-teacher. Sometimes, leaders need a David to face a giant or a Samuel to say, “You’re the man!” And sometimes, leaders need a Jeremiah – with fire in his bones – or an Isaiah to confront sin.
Coaching and mentoring is all about a relationship of trust and growth coupled with an open and teachable spirit. Mentoring is when mentors share experiences and expertise and, whether mentoring is done individually or in a group, in person or with technology, healthy, Christ centered leadership is the goal. In a coaching relationship, coaches seek to bring out and partner with the coachee to discern where the Spirit is leading them. Our partners who coach are formally trained to utilize Strengths Finders, Grip-Birkman, Intercultural Development Inventory, and/or DiSC to help guide their coaching sessions.
Our Coaching and Mentoring Focus:
- When you are navigating transitions in ministry and leadership
- When the church is coming between you and God
- When crisis has become acute in your life, ministry or family.
- When you are seeking to grow deeper in ministry.
- Discerning where the Spirit is leading you
Mentoring and coaching can be done in groups or with individuals depending on the availability of mentors and coaches and we do utilize video conferencing to make it possible to participate when distance and time are problematic.
Some of our ministry partners focused on coaching and mentoring are: Jim Martin, Jimmy Adcox, Jon Mullican, Chris Goldman, Evertt Huffard, Greg Anderson, Steven Carrizal, Shannon Rains, Brad Cox, Amanda Box, and Grady King.
If you are a minister in transition we are willing to help you navigate this season with intentional discernment and networking. The Minister Intake Form (MIT) is the first step and it is ONLY for those seeking a new position. For mentoring or consulting inquiries simply use the contact form.
