I have a passion to
see the church for which Christ died, reach it's full potential. In an era
when more churches are being closed than are being planted, I see an acute
need to bring existing churches to health and productivity in building the
Kingdom of God. I want to see them catch a fresh vision for which God has
uniquely created them and see them develop strategic plans to see that vision
become a reality. One of the essential signs of life is the ability to reproduce.
I want to see disciples, groups, leaders and churches come to life and multiply.
I also see a desperate
need for more churches. While many church planting efforts are started, large
majorities fail to thrive or don't survive at all. I believe that coaching
is critical for church planters who often have had little training and even
less support as they launch their churches. Walking with church planters to
help them avoid the pitfalls and undertows is a privilege and deep desire
I specialize in executive ministry coaching where I generally meet once per month with a client to strategize and set goals for personal and organizational change. Monthly fees vary (usually between $100 and $150) depending on your situation and appointment frequency.

makes a strategic contribution to advance God's kingdom. She combines practical,
hands-on experience with a wisdom that increases the effectiveness of other
leaders. The impact of her ministry extends beyond Phoenix to the world through

"Jeannette is able to develop a caring,
trusting, firm and compassionate environment where leaders come to fully understand
calling in their lives. Jeannette's coaching enabled me to find
more meaning and purpose in my ministry."
"Living in a loving relationship
with Jesus Christ, my purpose is to cultivate that relationship in a way that
results in bringing glory to God through equipping and strengthening his church,
so that the church can effectively reach the world for Christ. Coaching and
training Christian leaders allows me to participate in the building of the
Kingdom of God in ways that use my God-given gifts and fulfills the call God
has placed on my life. Walking with leaders through positive change and growth
is both a joy and a privilege."
