Coaching Topics

Heart to heart coaching on parenting as a ministry leader.


This session can be customized to the specific needs of the individual. We can discuss philosophy and principles, as well as situational issues. In the coaching segment, I have a heart to talk with ministry leaders about parenting their own children instead of pursuing models that substitute the church in the role of parent. This session can also implement a team approach that includes Angela Haynes, my wife, if couples needed to chat.

Staffing and leadership development with a D6 mindset.


I will focus on staffing and leadership development. This session draws from a rich church revitalization and development background and will emphasize conversation around developing a great team, specifically relating to developing a team with a D6 mindset.

Coaching an abiding lifestyle in Christ that leads to fruit-bearing instead of burnout.


Personal spiritual, emotional, and physical health for ministry leaders. Coaching an abiding lifestyle in Christ that leads to fruit bearing instead of burnout. Good for leaders on the edge.
