How have other pastors/churches paid for this?

We understand that not everyone has planned for coaching in their budget. Many of the pastors and churches that we serve have found creative ways to cover the cost. This could include: gifts from a wealthy benefactor in the church,  grants from the denomination, love offerings taken up by the church, or delaying the hire of an additional part-time employee for a season. If all these avenues have been exhausted, we do accept scholarship applications for small church pastors (300 or less in weekend attendance).
