Coaching Connection

Connecting Newly Credentialed Ministers with a Trained Coach

Are you a newly credentialed minister
in the Northwest Ministry Network?

You might be a recent ministry graduate or a seasoned minister with years of experience under your belt...or both! Whatever your background, we believe that God has you on this credentialing journey for a purpose and we want to affirm and support you in this calling.

The first few months of credentialed ministry is a crucial time and the NWMN is strategically investing in our newly credentialed ministers from the beginning. 

Here's how it works:
  • Register
  • We pair you with a trained coach who will walk alongside you as a thinking partner and a catalyst for new ideas. 
  • You meet with your coach twice a month, usually over the phone, for about an hour. 
  • You bring a topic from your life or ministry and your coach will actively listen, ask powerful questions, and give honest feedback in order to help you focus, gain clarity, and achieve momentum. 

For more information about our Coaching Connection program, you can listen to our recent webinar for more information. 

If you have any questions about this program or want to register, please contact Amy deVries.
