Serving pastors and ministry leaders worldwide

What is Ministry Coaching?

Ministry Coaching is a one-on-one relationship focused on life and leadership transformation. While it includes all the benefits of counseling, mentoring and accountability, coaching is more holistic. MCI's coaching engages the Holy Spirit and applies a systematic approach to achieve success in one's spiritual life, personal discipline, leadership advancement, optimum health and priority management.

Why Get Coached?

Christians are called to excellence in life and ministry. 1st Timothy 4:12 says to "...set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity." Coaching provides a framework to assess, develop and grow these key areas. The outside perspective and direct approach from your coach will allow you to eliminate blind spots and receive expert counsel, direction and encouragement.

How Does it Work?

Your coaching begins with behavioral assessments, an introduction to coaching tools and a two-hour session with your coach. You will discuss goals, your current reality and develop key objectives for your experience. Additionally, you may take advantage of onsite opportunities to supplement your one-one-coaching. From team building to strategic planning, your coach provide growth opportunities in all areas of life and leadership.

What our clients say

Tim Nicholson

Christ Presbyterian Church

"Dick has provided perspective and energy to help move me towards the sweet spot of my own gifting, focus my priorities, and develop my leadership within the organizations I serve. Through tools like life planning and daily routines, Dick is able to connect the dots between gifting, calling, and joy, while he skillfully walks the line between counselor and coach. From spiritual disciplines to personal health, and best leadership practices to organizational development, Dick is both an invaluable resource and a true friend."

Cory Pitts

New Work Fellowship Church

"We have two teenagers and both serve in full-time ministry positions. Our life was driven by the tyranny of the urgent. Dick helped us discern God's purpose for our life, build our confidence, increase our skills, and take practical steps toward our goals. Our time in Life Coaching with Dick Savidge has been nothing less than revolutionary."

Rob McDowell

Lead Pastor at North Metro Church in Marietta, GA

"I have now been a client for three years. It has been one of the best decisions that I have ever made as a pastor. Having my coach, Dick Savidge, someone who is on the outside of our organization, speak into my leadership, character, and emotional and strategic processing, has proved invaluable. I could not be more grateful for Dick's role in my life."
