Endorsements

My coach has helped me grow as a pastor and leader in the church. He has pushed me outside my comfort zone. He has helped me to formulate ideas, to set goals, to think ahead and to push for results. He has held me accountable to the goals I set for myself.
Rev. Joshua Schmidt, St. John Lutheran, Defiance, OH
We often try to find some canned solution for ministry challenges. They usually only work partway because they were never designed for your ministry and for your challenges. Coaching helps people get the best out of themselves.
Rev. Mark Etter, Bethany Lutheran Church, Erlanger, KY
Contrary to my expectations, during our first phone conversation my coach did not tell me how to do discipleship in my parish, he rather asked questions that helped me define discipleship and begin to look at my congregation’s process through the lens of this clearer definition. What were we already doing that fit my understanding of discipleship? What is missing in your congregation that might help us live into my understanding of discipleship? Questions like this really helped me change my focus from ministry
Rev. Eric Kennaugh, Risen Christ Lutheran Church, Springfield, OH
