Advance Children's Ministry Coaching

The pandemic has been challenging to lead through, hasn't it?

As churches prepare to move back into "normal" formats, it's vital to lead with wisdom and understanding.

That's why I'd like to invite you to be part of the Advance coaching program.  

Maybe you feel paralyzed as a leader?

Or you are looking to add more skills and tools to your leadership tool box?

Perhaps you want to know how to better lead in challenging times like we are facing now?

Or you feel like you are stuck as a leader and need help getting to the next level?

How can this happen?  The best way to grow as a leader is by having a coach.  Someone who has been where you are.  Someone who knows what you are facing.

I can be that person for you.  I have been in ministry for over 30 years and have helped build some of the largest and fastest growing children's ministries in the nation.  In the most recent church where I lead the children's ministry, I helped the church grow from 12,000 to 28,000 in weekend attendance in eight years.  My experience doesn't come from just sitting behind a desk, but rather from actually leading growing children's ministries.

The Advance Coaching sessions with Dale were fantastic!  I learned things from each lesson that will help me as a kids ministry leader.  Each session was packed with information, and the interactive style helped me learn from other ministry leaders as well. Definitely worth the investment!
