Coaching

Performance training for clergy – CHC guides ministers through strategic and goal-setting exercises to achieve better results in both personal and professional environments.


Whether a minister is hoping to increase effectiveness inside the church or enhance quality of life beyond congregational duties, coaching is a remarkable tool for helping bridge the gap between aspiration and reality. By cultivating and boosting a minister’s existing skills, resources, and creativity in a safe and challenging environment, coaching is the perfect way to explore a variety of professional and personal possibilities as well as articulate new goals.

CHC offers a personalized approach to coaching with programs designed around each minister’s individual needs and intentions. By helping ministers become more strategically focused while also energizing their sense of purpose and satisfaction, coaching provides significant benefits to congregations. Happier and more focused ministers are better able to serve congregations for long, productive tenures.

Most coaching takes place with a carefully matched professional coach in 1-2 telephone meetings per month. For a cost-effective way to support your minister, coaching is one of the most direct and valuable services of the Center.

CHC Coaches are trained to work alongside clergy and others who seek to address issues such as:

  • Vocational call
  • Conflict resolution
  • Clarity of personal mission and vision
  • Project implementation
  • Vocational or life transitions
  • Options for spiritual formation and/or personal growth
