Often unprepared for the shifting landscape ofministry in today's world, pastors, ministry staff and church leaders find themselves inadequate to affect the literal culture change needed within their congregations. Despite shrinking budgets, changingdemographics, and uncertain preparation,expectations are that leadership will be able to step up and enable new dreams and their fulfillment.
All of these issues can leave pastors feeling overwhelmed, overworked, ineffective, insecure, isolated and alone.
Founded by author and Master Coach Val Hastings, Coaching4Clergy has grown to become a global training company for equipping those called and charged with guiding their congregants in theirspiritual journeys. Honed by years of experience, Coaching4Clergy equips pastors with the under­ standing and skills to be an effective leader, and to compensate for the missing skills they were unaware they would need.
As a satellite program of Coaching4Clergy, IGCoffers four modules of 128 ICF hours that can lead to the ACC and PCC credentials if desired. In addition to leading their congregations with new excellence and effective­ ness, many graduates choose todevelop their own coaching practices.
