Ministry can be a lonely vocation. Our professions often find us without colleagues on a day-to-day basis. Sometimes it’s good to have someone to talk over the issues of our callings with who will help us set goals, take action, and hold us accountable.

You might seek clergy coaching if…

  • You’re a parish or institutional minister facing challenges in your setting.
  • Your to-do list in ministry just keeps growing longer and longer and you don’t know what to do first.
  • You’re in discernment about whether to continue in your current ministry setting.
  • Self-care eludes you and you’re seeking more work-life balance.
  • You are burned out and wondering what is next.
  • You would like a colleague to listen to your needs and help figure out what’s next.
  • You struggle with accountability in the day-to-day life of ministry.

What Does It Look Like?

A good coach asks questions and helps you develop a plan for action while building in a sense of accountability to your goals. Coaching sessions are typically an hour long and happen once a month, though we can talk about meeting more often if there’s something particularly sticky going on in your life. I’ll ask you what you hope to get out of the coaching session and we’ll focus on that as goals for our time together. Rather than offering you advice or fixing your problems for you, I encourage you to listen to the voice inside that already knows what you need to do. By the end of each session, you will have actionable things you can do to pursue the changes you hope for in life.

I am available to meet online via Zoom or in-person in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
