What Do Others Say?

As a pastor in my first appointment, conversations with David have given me focus, grounding, and much-needed opportunities to step back and see the big picture of ministry.  I appreciate how he asks thoughtful questions that really make me pause and reflect on my calling, and I would recommend this style of coaching to anyone discerning what real partnership with God looks like.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I entered into a coaching relationship with David, since I was facing some major life transitions that at the time were a bit overwhelming.  Over the past several months, David has encouraged me to explore and find answers within my own experience, while gently offering suggestions that might be helpful or useful.  I can say without reservation that this has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my professional and personal life, helping to move me from "what I thought I knew" to what God is leading me to know and experience.  Not only has my perspective changed, my comfort level with major decisions has expanded.

David has a knack for drawing out my intuitions, helping me to verbalize them, and then inviting me to intentionally formulate a plan. He is a coach that helps me to listen to my own heart and to God, and who seldom permits his own viewpoint to get in the way. David is a coach in the truest sense of the term. He summons our best qualities to the game.
