Coaching for Church Planters

Coaching is a relational and intentional process designed to empower you to:

– Discern opportunities

– Discover where God is at work in your ministry 

– Develop action steps to see God’s agenda become reality

Coaching is a key ingredient in church planting. Studies demonstrate that church planters beginning with a well-trained and experienced coach increase their success rate by 50%. Through regular phone calls, meetings, emails, and site visits, the coach will walk beside the planter and help the planter make key decisions, set goals to reach important milestones, and ensure all the important facets of the church planting process are covered. A coach offers support, encouragement, wisdom, accountability, and a safe place for the planter to process challenges and celebrate victories.

Find a Coach
Our CMC coaches have been trained through the Cultivate Coach Training process. All of our coaches bring a wealth of church planting knowledge and experience to the table.

Feel free to interview a potential coach. Email Aimee Pratt to help you find the right coach within our Wesleyan network.

*Be sure to check with your district leadership or sending church to see if they have any coaching recommendations from within your region.

“Having a coach allowed me to have a relational connection that empowered me to effectively pursue my church planting calling, while also keeping me centered on the Gospel and my love for people.”
