NEW Resources:

We have a whole new layout of the list of Coaching Resources for your personal ministry within your local church. This is free to any and all Pastors. Below are two sample resources for you. Also visit here for the complete list.

How To Write Or Share Your Personal Testimony -- A "testimony" is just the story of your spiritual journey; how you came to know Christ Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, or how you came back to him, and what that means to you now. You simply share in an honest and humble way what God has done for you. Read more..

Event & New Ministry Guide -- Use this form to help guide your thinking so that your new ministry or event maximizes its potential to make disciples (Mt. 28:19–20). Read more..

Free Coaching Session - A lot of pastors have not experienced the power of coaching yet. I’ve been a believer and a practitioner of coaching for many years now. it is a powerful tool to help individuals, and pastors, to reach their goals.
