Helping Congregations. . .
. . .Embrace their Higher Calling
Just as Coaching empowers individuals to discover and embrace their God-given higher calling, The Higher Calling Coach can be your short-term ministry partner, equipping and empowering your ministry team to achieve that for which they were called heavenward in Christ. Listed below are three types of services offered by Phil Pledger, The Higher Calling Coach:
The power of consulting begins with objectivity and sound assessment. We work together to accurately and completely understand the present situation, discuss your preferred situation, and then chart the course forward. The Consultant offers fresh objective perspective, ministry tools and expertise to chart your course, along with ongoing follow-up for as long as your ministry desires. There’s nothing more frustrating than a Consultant who goes into an organization but leaves people wondering how to implement the training in the “real world.”
Team and/or Individual Coaching
Coaching is a powerful tool that not only impacts the one being coached, but all those whose lives he or she touches as well. Team Coaching Excellence utilizes the same powerful coaching tools, but here, it’s applied to everyone on your team. Imagine your ministry team filled with excitement, able to work together with great synergy, impacting your community for the cause of Christ as never before.The Higher Calling Coach can help your ministry team:
Become a healthy ministry team, eager to embrace challenges and focused on results
Establish, grow, and maintain the deep trust necessary for healthy and effective teams
Become able to speak openly, honestly, truly “speaking the truth in love.”
Demonstrate high level commitment to God, one another, and congregational leadership.
Become willing (and dare I say eager) for healthy accountability
Focus on measurable ministry results — become a high-performance team
