Coaching Group Starting This Fall

2coaching_tw_blue_sm (3)

Most of my key moments of leadership breakthroughs have come during intensive time with a group of my ministry peers. Nothing beats having intentional time with other leaders who are in trenches with you. You have time to share wins, losses, ideas and best practices. This fall, I am opening a opportunity for a limited number of small group ministry leaders to hang out for 9 months and learn from each other. This will include two-day gatherings in OctoberJanuary and April in Nashville, TN, plus 90-minute video conferences in the months when we don’t gather in person. The deadline to apply is September 4.

Here are the details:


Gatherings: October 15-16, January 14-15 and April 14-15
Video Conferences (2-3:30pm CST)
November 12, December 10, February 11, March 10, May 12 and June 9


Small groups point people at local churches.

What You Get:

The group will receive six days of in-person coaching sessions over nine months months, plus six 90-minute video conference coaching sessions in the months when the group is not meeting in person. This includes training on a variety of small groups ministry strategies and models. You’ll learn about tools, exercises and best practices to implement after every session.

One of the primary benefits will be the opportunity to network with and learn from like-minded leaders. We set aside dedicated time in every gathering to talk through the pressing issues you are facing. You’ll have access to your coach (me!) throughout the network gatherings. Additionally, you’ll receive several free resources and books, special guests, plus some other fun surprises.

Your Investment:

$2500 per person + travel expenses to Nashville.
A commitment to be at every gathering.

There is limited space, so please apply soon here!
