Coaching Services

As your coach, I will come alongside, listen deeply, ask questions that invite reflection, and offer accountability for the goals you set.

Individual Coaching

Pastors bring varied aims to coaching: enhancing leadership skills, reassessing priorities, improving work-life balance, navigating conflict, reimagining sermon preparation, preparing grant proposals, discerning a new call, preparing for transition/retirement, and more.

Enneagram Coaching

I am an iEQ9 Accredited Enneagram Practitioner and use the Enneagram as a framework for coaching, focusing on the strengths of the core number and the pathways to development found in the lines, wings, and centers of expression.

Sustaining Clergy

Groups of 3 to 6 participants meet twice-monthly over three months. Sessions include theological reflection, discussion of ministry issues, and accountability for planned actions, all grounded in prayer. A new group will form in September, 2021.

Testimonials

  • Martha has a way of helping me see a situation “from the balcony”, while also helping me to strategize how to engage with issues on the ground.  The impact on my ministry and on my own growth as a differentiated leader has been significant. - D, a United Church of Christ pastor
  • Martha has been an invaluable resource and support as I began a new pastorate and explored a new calling. She is compassionate, wise, and kind, but also firm. My ministry would not be as effective without her guidance. M, a Metropolitan Community Church pastor
