Why CoachingPastors.com Was Created

Welcome to CoachingPastors.com! We're excited to bring you a monthly update of valuable information and coaching tips to help you be your best and have the greatest impact on your sphere of influence. Pastors today face perhaps the greatest challenges in the history of the church. Here are just a few sobering statistics:

  • Over 60% say that they have no one to talk to when it comes to the challenges they're facing in ministry.
  • Over 55,000 of the 365,000 pastors in the US are in transition every year moving from one ministry to the next.
  • Half are so discouraged that they say they would leave the ministry if they had another way of making an income.
  • More than 85% of pastor's wives wish their spouse would choose another profession.

Why is this happening? In a study done with pastors that "finished well" in their ministry, 50-60% said they had a "mentor or coach". If you're reading this newsletter, it's very likely that you or a pastor you know understand these statistics from personal experience. Our mission at CoachingPastors is to provide the best Christian coaching to help you achieve your potential and Kingdom impact.

In each issue of the CoachingPastors newsletter you will find valuable leadership insights, coaching tips and tools to help you be an effective leader.

This month's coaching tool is entitled, "Leadership 360." This is a tool to help you as a leader understand how others within your leadership sphere perceive that you are leading. Once you've assembled an adequate feedback sampling (a half- dozen or so completed surveys), you will want to debrief your findings with your coach. Download this tool from www.coachingpastors.com/docume nts/Leadership360.pdf.

Remember, we're here to help. Let us hear from you.
