Do you want to have more leadership influence with the team you lead?

Do you want to see the ministry you lead grow and flourish?

Are you looking for someone who can help you get to the next level as a children's ministry leader?

Do you want someone who will personally invest in you and your ministry?

Are you looking for someone who can help you navigate the challenges and struggles you are facing?

Dale Hudson, one of the leading voices and leaders in children's ministry, can help you grow as a children's ministry leader. Whether it's your first year or fifteenth year in ministry, he can help you and your ministry get to the next level.

Much, if not, most of ministry wisdom and knowledge cannot be learned in a college classroom. Dale's coaching is grounded not in theory alone, but in proven, hands-on leadership experience. When looking for a coach, you want someone who doesn't just talk about growing a ministry, but has personally done so. For the past 32 years, he has personally built and led some of the fastest growing and largest children's ministries in the country.  

At one of the churches he served at, he helped the church grow from 12,000 people attending on weekends to 28,000 people attending on the weekends with thousands of kids. He also grew the children's ministry volunteer team from 300 to 2,600 active volunteers.
