Ministry needs a transformation. Churches are closing, membership is shrinking, and pastors are feeling alone and unsupported. With six out of ten churches doomed to close in the next ten years, it is time for another Reformation.
Yet God is ever-faithful and provides a way for His church to flourish. In Ministry 3.0, you’ll read inspiring accounts from a diverse group of ministers who use coaching as a tool to resolve conflict, empower congregations, lead clergy teams and lay committees, and navigate change with grace and effectiveness.
J Val. Hastings, MCC, is the founder and president of Coaching4Clergy, which provides specialized training for pastors, church leaders, and coaches. Val hired his first coach while he was pastoring at a local United Methodist church. His progress was noticed by all, and that experience gave Val a global vision of Every Pastor, Ministry Staff, and Church Leader a Coach. Val currently holds the designation of master certified coach through the International Coach Federation, the highest coaching designation.
