Last year I launched my first-ever Coaching Network for Executive Pastors. And beginning this fall, I'm going to offer this again. I will be meeting with 12 church leaders for a coaching experience which begins in September and concludes in March. I'm designing it specifically for Executive Pastors (or leaders in a similar role) who want to take their leadership to the next level. I'm not quite sure how to describe it, but here is my best attempt…
- It will be personal. Highly practical. Intensive. Relational. Collaborative.
- Think less conference or workshop–and more hands-on graduate study program.
- We will drill down on building teams, hiring and firing, developing a healthy staff culture, leading change, budget and money issues, communication strategies and more.
It's not going to be cheap or easy. It will involve an investment of money and time, and a commitment to travel (Granger isn't "on the way" to anywhere). But for those who join me–I promise it will be an experience that will enhance your ministry and take you to the next level of personal leadership. Here are some comments from last years' group.
This is a “must do.” The knowledge gained was worth the time and money. However, the relationships are priceless. –Scott Adkins, Cornerstone Christian Church, Shihloh, IL
The networking and relational value was worth it alone. I have been exposed to some great people, resources, and support. –Nate Drye, Abundant Life Church, Glen Burnie, MD
The network has been both a greenhouse and a sounding board! –Sharon Van Niekerk, The Father’s House, Chili, NY
Worth every penny. I am a much better leader due to this training. Incredibly valuable insights into how to better serve my pastor, my church and my God! –Alfred Turley, Rock Bridge Community Church, Dalton, GA
If you are interested, there is good news: This the first day I'm talking about it publicly. But– last week in informal conversation with some friends, three applications have already been submitted. So only 9 slots left.

I'm really praying that God will put together an amazing group and can't wait to see what happens!
7/19: UPDATE: The 12 slots filled up VERY QUICKLY! So I have opened up a second coaching group. There are still slots available if you'd like to join us!
