Ministry Coaching

A long-term, relationally-based, covenant-directed process helping pastors and leaders discern and follow through on God’s direction to them.

Type of coaching:

  • A Coaching Conversation – one-time, one-hour conversation with one of our qualified coaches. You set the subject, we ask the questions, you discern your next steps and articulate them as action plans.
  • Consultative Coaching – you invite a BCM/D coach, based on their area of expertise, to consult with you about a specific need in your church.
  • Coaching Covenant* – you enter a 3-6 month covenant with one of our qualified/certified coaches. The relationship is about your goals and your growth; about you discovering insights from God; about your questions; and your actions. You bring the topics (anything from ministry to marriage/family to soul care) to the conversation. Covenant Coaching is not therapy, training, or mentoring – it is coaching!

* depending on your choice for a coach, some minor costs could be incurred
