Pastors & Lay Leaders

Church leaders (ministers, senior church staff and lay leaders) can greatly benefit from leadership-management and discipleship coaching from a trusted and experienced coach, someone who understands their unique needs and spiritual perspective.  As a long time Christian lay leader (elder, adult Sunday school teacher, small group leader, and seminarian), I can readily identify with your problems and leadership-management priorities.  I provide experienced and goal-oriented coaching in the following areas.  (Confidentiality is assured, if requested.)

  • Personnel (staff or lay leader) problems & issues
  • New program development and launch
  • Organization and administration issues
  • Goal achievement, efficiency and prioritization (both personal and church)
  • Life balance and health
  • Communications skills (personal and corporate)
  • Personal and staff discipleship

Again, strict confidentiality is assured, as requested.  No problem is too big (or too small) if it affects Christ’s church and His people.  Allow me to use my gifts, talents and experience to assist you in fulfilling your mission and your personal spiritual potential.

The cost of church-related coaching is minimal, nominally $50/hour plus expenses, if any, for local in-person or phone coaching anywhere in the U.S. or overseas.  (In person coaching outside of the local area incurs a travel and lodging expense.)   There is no charge for my home church membership/staff, and local seminary students and staff.  Additionally, there is no charge for coaching new ministries and missionaries.  This is my way of giving back – being obedient in discipling and building up the body of Christ, and storing up treasures in heaven.  I do coaching out of joy, and love for my brothers and sisters in Christ, not out of compulsion or a desire for personal gain.

Ask me about our planned monthly ecumenical Christian Pastor’s Professional Resource luncheon to be begun in Fall/Winter 2018.  A time of sharing solutions, resources, education and uplifting fellow Christian ministry leaders.  Your only cost is for the meal.  Time and location to be determined.  Please contact me directly if you are interested in participating in this new opportunity.

I am also available to coach or present topical seminars/workshops to church leadership groups, such as elders/sessions, deacons and small group leaders regarding special projects or problems.  These can either be a part of the worship service (for example, a sermon based upon “The Life-Changing Questions of Jesus”, or “Coaches of the Bible”) or scheduled separately at a mutually convenient time.

”George’s educational and work background alone would make him a good coach.  Combining this with his organizational skills, kindness, and prayerful focus on growth in Jesus Christ makes him a great coach.  When it comes to looking at the bigger picture, there’s no one I’d rather have coaching me than George Currie.”  – Rev. Chris Konker
