Build a vision for your ministry through prayer and the word.
We often hear stories of men “hearing” a particular vision from God that is perfect for their church, community, or city. Unfortunately, this leaves many leaders feeling like they are “missing out”, unsure, or insecure on how exactly to lead God’s people.
Fortunately, finding God’s vision for the church is actually easier than you think. You may feel like you are the only pastor who hasn’t heard a direct vision from God, but He has told us what to do in His word. God is not hiding His vision for just the few people on this planet who are really asking to know it. The vision for your church is not a hide and seek mission from God.
Our newest 30 day coaching will guide you to see that God has written down His vision for us so that we as pastors can know His will and help our congregation act on it. This small group coaching format will give you the tools and the confidence to seek the Lord and find your specific calling for your congregation.
At the end of the month you will:

So many consultants that we’ve worked with bring in leadership principles from the marketplace that just don’t work in ministry. But Dale Sutherland has helped us fulfill the vision for our church in a way that is based in Scripture and dependent on the Holy Spirit. We highly commend him to you.

“Christian coaching is the art and practice of enabling individuals and groups to move from where they are to where God wants them to be.”
– GARY COLLINS, Christian Coaching
“In contrast to the emphasis on imparting information through tutoring and instruction, coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximize his or her own performance.”
– adapted by Gary Collins from SIR JOHN WHITMORE, author of Coaching for Performance
Instead of just giving you modern tactics, we enable individuals and groups to move from where they are to where God wants them to be by the power of the Holy Spirit. We help Christians and churches become maximally effective in life and ministry through several different time-tested processes that are rooted in Scripture and proven to result in greater God-dependency and less self-sufficiency.
As Christians, we are called to steward our gifts and to pursue excellence for the glory of God. God isn’t glorified when we fail to live up to our full potential in Christ. That potential is different for each one of us, whether individuals or organizations. Yet, most of us have more room for growth than we even realize. Coaches are those who help us to better see ourselves as God sees us and, by God’s grace, to become more fully the person or church that God created and called us to be.
Each of our coaches is highly educated and has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment both to personal prayer and to cultivating a culture of prayer in the local church. Moreover, each of our coaches has been personally trained by Daniel Henderson and so, each of them are very well versed in our processes.
We understand that not everyone has planned for coaching in their personal or church budget. Many of the individuals that we have served have found creative ways to cover the cost through delaying unnecessary purchases or fasting from something like coffee or entertainment for a month or two.
The big goal is to help you make practical changes that bring lasting transformation to every aspect of your life.
As part of our ministry to churches and individuals, we are committed to making this an affordable process for all. Because of that, our prices are a fraction of what many professional coaching firms charge. Tell us more about yourself and get detailed pricing info by filling out an application below.
