"You need to do this coaching group. It's fantastic. I've been an XP for 9 years and in ministry for almost 18. In my time, it's the single best investment I've made in my growth. It helped propel me through a few growth barriers and helped take the way I think to another level."
"The most helpful part of the coaching network was networking and discussions with other Executive Pastors. Tim Stevens is a wealth of knowledge and experience, so that was huge to be under his leadership this whole time."

"I would highly recommend this coaching network to anyone. The connections I've made are priceless."

"Having a safe place to discuss my situations while getting valuable advice has been a huge blessing to our church."

"The resources we received were incredible. The conversations and input added value and made the time and effort and money spent worth it."
