Coaching4Clergy Professional Coach Training – Part 1

Sponsored by the “Together We Thrive: Nurturing Pastoral Leadership” Initiative
A collaboration of the TA1 Conferences of the United Church of Christ, 
The New England Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America 
The Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts, funded by Lilly Endowment Inc. 

Coaching4Clergy’s Professional Coach Training program is for pastors, church leaders, and ministry staff who want to develop ministry excellence and effectiveness.  Often unprepared for the shifting landscape of ministry in today’s world, most pastors do not feel equipped to effectively lead their churches. Despite shrinking budgets, changing demographics, and uncertain preparation, expectations are that leadership will be able to step up and enable new dreams and their fulfillment.

Founded by Pastor and Master Certified Coach, Dr. J. Val Hastings, Coaching4Clergy has grown to become a global training company for equipping those called and charged with guiding their congregants in their spiritual journeys. Honed by years of experience, Coaching4Clergy equips pastors with the knowledge and expertise to be an effective leader and compensates for the missing skills they were unaware they would need.

Coaching4Clergy’s Professional Coach Training is an ACTP program (Accredited Coach Training Program through the International Coach Federation). It consists 128 hours of coach training that is pre-approved by the International Coach Federation.  Those who wish to obtain ACC, PCC, and MCC credentials through the ICF have the advantage of an easier, streamlined process as graduates of Coaching4Clergy’s PCT program.
