Empower – Coaching For Leaders

Coaching Blog Coach Training Coaching for You Coaching Events




Many pastors and lay leaders are learning the value of having a life and leadership coach come alongside them in their journey and help them take the steps necessary to move forward in their spiritual journeys. Join us for these exciting upcoming classes, and become a coach!

Empower is the Baptist General Association of Virginia’s Coaching Initiative. The initiative is designed to help you find a prepared coach to serve as your “thinking partner” at a reasonable cost.

We have over 50 trained coaches who are ready and willing to engage you in timely and impactful conversations about your “next steps.” Most of these coaches meet with you over the phone for no more than one hour. You can choose to invest in one session or multiple sessions — whatever is best for you.

We even have different cost options available for you based on your need and your desires and your expectations of your coach’s experience. We also have male and female coaches available.

Our coaches are committed to serving you and walking alongside you as you listen for God’s voice in your journey.

A coach can help you:

  • Achieve clarity on the next steps
  • Focus on prioritized action rather than ideas
  • Leverage your gifts and strength
  • Productively negotiate challenges and obstacles in your ministry and personal life
  • Maximize your personal and God-given potential
  • Create a space safe for risk-taking and transformation
