Every leader needs a coach. Every leader is a coach.

Coaching flows from the relationships that God has established for us, and helps develop healthy rhythms in our lives and helps us succeed by providing spiritual guidance, emotional support and prayer, accountability and training and skill development. There is someone who has experience you can lean on, and likewise, someone who needs your experience to help them navigate their path.

Together Groups connect pastors of church plants and established churches together with the purpose of seeing Christ’s Kingdom expanded in their region. Participating pastors/leaders challenge each other, learn together, and resource one another in a caring environment to stimulate the mobilization, health, and impact of each church involved in the team.

Through these groups, our collective goal is to see 400 strong, reproducing churches by 2027.


Every leader needs a coach
Often ministry can be a lonely journey. Each day brings new challenges, such as managing church health and growth, leading staff and caring for your congregation—all while trying to move ministry forward and avoid burnout.

We believe every leader needs a coach. The significance of coaching runs consistently throughout the Bible. From the beginning of Creation, God designed us to be in relationship, and coaching flows out of these relationships. A coach can help develop healthy rhythms in your life and help you succeed by providing: 

  • Spiritual guidance
  • Emotional support and prayer
  • Accountability
  • Training and skill development 

Overcoming the obstacles that accompany ministry requires grit, tenacity, dependence and determination. Having a coach walk with you can make the difference.

Every leader is a coach
Leading a church requires great knowledge, character, vision and dependence on the Holy Spirit. There is always someone around you who has walked the path you’ve already been on. We all have experiences that can be shared to better other leaders.

We can help your church create a coaching culture by developing leadership pipelines through: 

  • Residencies
  • Internships
  • Teaching
  • Mentoring

As a coach you can help lead others to their next destination. Our prayer is that each leader will raise up other leaders to expand their reach.

My relationship with Converge MidAmerica has been life-giving. They have empowered our church to strive towards being a healthy, biblically functioning body that is not only impacting our community, but linking arms with other churches to start and strengthen churches.
