Coaching4Clergy Success Story

Phyllis picAfter completing an intensive, experiential, 16-day on-site executive coach training course, I was neither comfortable nor confident to begin coaching.

Being a fairly task oriented person, I am much more at ease with a straight forward, practical approach to coaching. I found this in the Coaching4Clergy program. Val worked with me on a personal level (as he does with all students) to help me earn the ACC credential from the International Coach Federation – and getting closer to PCC credential.

I am retired clergy and so grateful to be serving the church as a coach. I am working on a Conference level with Vibrant Church Initiative as well as coaching Pastors and individual churches. Presently I am the only coach in the Texas Conference endorsed by the United Methodist Church. I also have the privilege of serving on the C4C faculty. A whole new world has opened up for me in my “retirement” and I owe it to my Coaching4Clergy training.
