As a coach, I help others think forward, clarify priorities, set goals, find paths and solutions, and stay focused. What are you looking for? Where do you want to be in 5 years? 10 years? Where are you now?
What do you want to hear Christ say when you give an account for your life?
Would you like to help others reach their potential for Christ?
Psalm 78:72 says David shepherded his people with a whole heart and the skills of his hands.
Coaching is a skill set that has the potential to make an eternal difference in the lives of others. Our next training begins in August of 2023. Contact us for more details.
Are you producing disciples? Are your members growing in faith and increasing in love? Are they focused on Christ and His kingdom? Do they understand the big picture of God's plan?
We have several resources available for those who want to make disciples and help others grow in their faith.
When most of us hear the word “coach” we think of sports. Maybe you immediately thought of your favorite SEC coach, running up and down the sideline, shouting across the field, throwing headsets on the ground, hopefully getting a Gatorade shower after a victory. Uh… no. We’re not talking about sports.
The term “coaching” is said to have originated around 1830 at Oxford University when one student helped another student prepare for and pass an exam. At that time a carriage was a vehicle which was also referred to as a coach. The student who helped another was said to have “carried” or “coached” him. It did not become associated with sports until much later.
Coaching has become a globally accepted means of helping others make progress. Most of the Fortune 500 companies around the world employ coaches because good coaches make a difference. I want to make coaching available to any ministry leader who wants help, regardless of the size of their congregation or their personal income. While I cannot offer coaching free of charge, if you have a desire, we'll find a way to make it happen. I coach to make a difference and I want to provide quality coaching to anyone who also wants to make a difference. In addition to coaching, I also train leaders to become more effective by utilizing coaching skills. I can provide references from the many I've been privileged to help and train. Contact me and let's have a conversation. The first conversation is always free.
Who am I?
I am a thirty-five year veteran of ministerial leadership, leading both large and small organizations comprised of staff and volunteers. I understand the stress and frustrations of leadership. This is what led me into coaching as a means of helping others. My coaching experience goes back many years when I received coaching, but in 2020, while serving the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions as the interim Church Planting Strategist, I received coaching training through the SEND Network of the North American Mission Board, one of the largest mission organizations in the country. In 2021, I completed the Coaching Mastery Certificate Program through CRM. I personally have many hours of coaching experience and have had the privilege of coaching leaders across the country and abroad. In my contractual relationship with the Alabama Baptists, we have developed a robust network of coaches to provide coaching for church planters across the state. In doing so, have trained a number of men and women who are now making a difference in the lives of others.
As a professional coach, I adhere to the International Coaching Federation's standards of ethics and practice, as published in 2021.
Do you feel stuck? Plateaued? Are you tired of the status quo?
Would you like to make a difference?
Call me. I would love to help you.

D52 is tool for disciple-makers who want to see lives change and Christ once again glorified through His church. It designed to:
1. get people into the Word and hearing Christ speak;
2. develop a habit of spending some time each day with Christ - listening, responding and journaling;
3. understand and see the big picture of His plan to redeem the world. (Phil.2:2; 1 Cor. 2:16) D52 is prayerfully and strategically designed to help participants understand:
· the authority of God’s word,
· the preeminence of Christ,
· the priority of His kingdom,
· the purpose of His church &
· His mandate to be disciples who make disciples.
4. experience the greenhouse dynamic of "koinonia" for growth and development through encouragement, support and accountability.
(Mt. 18:19-20; Col. 3:16)
5. become active participants in God's plan to enlarge His kingdom through His church. (Mt. 28:18-20; John 20:21)
Participants are asked to commit to approximately 30 to 40 minutes each day reading the Bible and answering a few questions, and meet with 2 to 12 people once a week for about an hour. Each small group time will consist of a discussion of the texts read during the previous week along with a lot of encouragement and prayer. The discussion is guided to help each participant process the insights and instructions they have heard and seen in scripture and learn from each other.
D52 is simple. All D52 requires is 1.) a guide, 2.) one or more willing participants who have a Bible and a guide book, and 3.) a home or other suitable place to meet. Enlisting participants is as easy as “come and see”.
D52 is versatile. Whether church revitalization, church planting, or as a starting point for new converts, D52 will help people develop the disciplines and an understanding of what is necessary to become effective participants in the work of the church.
D52 is effective. God’s word is alive and powerful. Countless lives have been transformed by simply reading God’s word. (Is. 55:11 & Jer. 1:12) Good things happen at the feet of Jesus! Check out the testimonies at the end.
D52 is reproducible. Because of its simplicity, anyone who has completed D52 can facilitate a new group. This offers great potential for multiplication.
D52 is affordable. We believe that D52 can make a difference in both individual lives and churches and we do not want anyone or any church to be left out because of the cost. The guide books are only $10 each (+shipping) if you purchase 5 or more, and a free Leader's Guide is included with every first time order.
"D52 was truly life changing for me and my wife. Love D52!" - Kyle
"I absolutely and wholeheartedly recommend D52. There were distractions that presented themselves, but the victories and insights with a group of believers surpassed anything I could have ever imagined. It was unbelievable how the group fed each other and grew from week to week. This weekly practice became such an integral part of our lives, I literally grieved when it was over. - Amanda
“D52” …was life changing... Forever committed!" - Dena (and 14 months later still sold out for Christ and His Kingdom!)
"I VERY much enjoyed working through (D52) and was truly impressed with how it gently nudges the participant to see for THEMSELVES who Jesus is, what the purpose of the scriptures are and many other essential biblical precepts. I can see this being equally important for a new believer, OR someone like myself who needed to once again meditate on some of the great truths brought out in this study. I liked the simplicity of the materials; the directed reading and just a few simple questions (that were more than enough to discuss at length during group time, even with a relatively small group like ours.) - Sandra
