MEET YOUR COACH
My initial call into ministry was to pastor others through sports. In my first job with a church, I felt like there weren’t many people willing to help. I also felt like most tasks were my responsibility. I didn’t understand that the short term costs of recruiting, training, and developing leaders far outweighed the long term costs of mental fatigue, loneliness, and burnout. I also struggled to say no when people placed their expectations on me, and made decisions that I knew were not good for me or the ministry God had called me to serve...just so I could make someone else happy.
God gave me a renewed vision for discipleship with my second sports ministry position. This church had more buy-in for the sports ministry and I found more people willing to help. I learned the power of saying ‘No’, and developed a process for training up leaders. Over time, I went from managing hundreds of volunteers to leading Coaches, League Directors, and a Lead Team. Of the six men on that Lead Team, one became a staff member, one became an Elder, and another followed God’s call into vocational ministry with a local church.
I believe disciples of Jesus make disciples of Jesus, and I free up pastors to fulfill their God-given calling. If you're ready to do the hard work that's desperately needed to create a disciple-making culture in your church, let's connect.
