Spong Clergy Coaching

Coaching empowers pastors to make adaptive changes that transform the church.

I work with pastors from all ministry settings and denominations.

I take particular interest in coaching LGBTQ+ clergy.

Individual Coaching

I work one-on-one with pastors who aim to develop their leadership skills, improve time management, reorganize priorities, develop work-life balance, navigate conflict, reimagine sermon preparation, or discern a new call.

Administry is a weekly practice used to organize your priorities in ministry and beyond. Over four sessions I will help you customize the tool and offer accountability and encouragement as you develop the practice of using it.
