Cultivating gospel influence where you live, work, play and learn
Coach & Pastor
Cultivating gospel influence through…
A six-week guided apprenticeship in “mutual discipleship” as the most basic relationship of communities of faith and the multiplication of the gospel. We ask people to prayerfully consider a one time gift, but nothing is required.
A monthly virtual team of those ready to lead themselves and serve the their church family with the simple rhythms of listening to people’s hearts, listening to God’s heart, and prayer-driven mission. Each month there is a biblical reflection relating to maturity, community, or mission. We ask people to prayerfully commit to a monthly gift to support the facilitator.
COACHING ordinary people who want to be faithful with the gospel influence that has been entrusted to them. We will develop critical growth initiatives in your leadership, professional, or personal life. We’ll implement strategies to achieve those goals in a specific amount of time. Coaching is provided within the framework of the ICF Coaching Code of Ethics.
CONSULTING with leaders to align the Spirit inspired vision with organizational structure and biblical principles. We will diagnose the current opportunities and challenges with proven techniques and tools to propose a clear path forward.
SPIRITUAL DIRECTION intends to foster deeper awareness of your heart and God’s heart for you. You will meet with a trained listener with one ear attentive to your story and another to the Holy Spirit who is intertwined in your story.
Vision into Practical Steps
Coaching with Ryan has helped me pull back from the tyranny of the urgent and see the big picture of where God wants to take our church. Ryan’s experience and coaching style are a powerful combination in helping leaders turn their vision/big goals into practical steps to implement and work toward. Working with Gospel Training has been an incredible benefit to me as a pastor and our church as a whole!
Ryan hits it hard, builds teams around him, and far exceeds peoples expectations. It’s a thrill to partner with him and see his ministry flourish. I consider him a dear friend and love watching him blaze new trails in ministry.
Improved Staff Hiring
Ryan and the TTI screening process has improved our staff hiring and retention by giving us key insights into how a person will respond to our environment. He personally connects with us and helps us dig deep into the data collected through the TTI screening. His input has given us confidence and helped us guide staff to a more fulfilling experience in our organization.
Creativity and Biblical Knowledge
I was an elder at SHCC when Ryan was the Pastor. Ryan is an energetic Pastor with lots of creativity and Biblical knowledge. He relates extremely well with people and builds high quality into their lives. He has excellent leadership ability and works well with paid and volunteer staff. I highly recommend him.
Ryan was a valuable asset to our leadership team. Ryan took it upon himself to figure out the problems that needed to be addressed and took the time to find out the solutions. Relationally apt and spiritually sound, a very good teammate.
Help Others Work Together Better
Ryan has a visionary’s heart and mind and can create and orchestrate his ideas with spectacular results. He has articulation and communication skills that help others work better together. On top of these gifts Ryan has a character made of steel and yet has been refined so many times, he shares his greatest vulnerabilities so that others might benefit.
For the month of April we have FREE access to a powerful assessment that combines your strengths, values, and EQ into one comprehensive report. Independent Scholar, Robert Cooper, would say High Emotional Intelligence is the superior ability to sense, understand and effectively apply the power of emotions, to facilitate higher levels of collaboration and productivity.
To have the wisdom to be yourself, and not take on what others or your ego want you to be, that is the challenge for leaders and many organizations. It is when we step outside of ourselves that we are on shaky ground for all kinds of pain and consequences.
2019 is the start of a new chapter as we relocated with family and friends to Vancouver, WA. I had a few people ask how they can pray for us as we move to Vancouver with friends and family. You can sign up below to receive stories and prayers during our first year.
