The parish ministry can be a lonely calling.  The coaching experience is an opportunity for pastors to relate confidentially to someone who has or is having similar experiences, challenges and joys.  Coaching can help in many areas including focus and follow through of ministry plans.  Coaching has personally been very helpful to me.”
