About Spiritual Leadership

Our main goal in teaching spiritual leadership is to help Christian leaders. We have encountered hundreds of discouraged men and women who were ready to resign their leadership positions but retained a heartfelt desire to serve God. As we helped them discover God’s agenda, leaders from all walks of life found encouragement and direction for their lives and organizations. We do not exclusively teach those engaged in full-time Christian work, although those serving in vocational ministry can certainly benefit from the truths we discuss. The guidelines we present are relevant to all Christians who desire to be spiritual leaders. Spiritual leadership is not an occupation; it is a calling. Christian businesspeople, physicians, educators, politicians, and parents should all be spiritual leaders. More and more people in “secular” occupations are taking their calling as spiritual leaders seriously, and they are impacting the world and extending God’s kingdom as a result.

People can only lead effectively once they understand leadership in light of their divine calling. According to the Bible, God is not necessarily looking for leaders; He is looking for servants (Isa. 59:16; Ezek. 22:30). When God finds people who are willing to be molded into His servants, the possibilities are limitless.

About Spiritual Leadership Coaching

Most of us would admit that we could lead at a higher level if we had a coach to help us maximize our strengths, work through our weaknesses, and hold us accountable on the commitments we make to God, others, and ourselves. God knows our full potential, and He wants to grow us as leaders. Sometimes we need someone to help us recognize what God is doing in, around, and through us.

Are you or your organization in that place right now?

Either as one-on-one coaching for you or facilitated team coaching for your entire leadership team, a trained, BMI-certified Leadership Coach is standing by to help.
