Get a fresh perspective on where you are in your ministry and how to get where you want to go.

A personal conversation about your ministry

MMA ministry coaching session is a real conversation with someone who deeply understands ministry. No complicated assessments or quick-fix formulas. Just a chance to get clear on what’s working in your ministry, what isn’t, and how you can make your life a little easier.

I was a pastor for fifteen years, and I know what you’re going through. I know what it’s like to work hard and feel like you’re not getting anywhere, or to lie awake worrying about the budget meeting. I’ve also worked with hundreds of pastors of churches from small to large from over a dozen denominations over the past fifteen years.

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • A 30 minute session by phone or Skype—a personal conversation that will help you see what’s in the way of reaching your goals
  • An experience of what makes this approach to coaching unique, why the process works over time, and how it applies to your specific situation
  • At least one recommendation to help you get more of what you want in your ministry and your life.
  • A free checklist to help you assess your leadership.

I can’t wait to hear from you.

The work you have done in clarifying and strengthening my leadership has been invaluable.Jennifer Brownell, Pastor, Hillsdale Community Church UCC , Portland, OR
Most of us who lead fly at 35,000 feet.  We see the big picture and we often see a never ending number of issues that demand attention and problems that require solutions.  Sometimes all these challenges can overwhelm us and so we resist and find ourselves stuck.  One important response for such times that Margaret has taught me is to ask myself this question, “What is the one thing I can do to move forward?” Often, this is just what I need to break the emotional logjam.  Thanks, Margaret.Rev. Dwight Robarts, Executive Director, Christ’s Haven for Children, Keller, TX
Margaret has been very helpful to me as a resource, sounding board and experienced guide as I navigated a job change.  Being able to talk about what I was struggling with and experiencing with an expert in congregational systems and family systems theory helped me to gain a clearer perspective on my role and how I related to others.  I came to think of our time together as “strategy sessions,” and always left feeling excited about fresh possibilities.  Her gentleness and deep listening helped me hear myself more clearly.  I value her highly as a facilitator, listener, co-strategist, and friend.The Rev.
