Cultivating gospel influence through…

Experiential training


Mutual Discipleship
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.


gospel teams
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.

Individualized engagements

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.

Impact

  • Vision into Practical Steps

    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!

    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.

    Valuable Asset

    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.
