The questions I’m asked the most by church staff are not about their skills, but are instead focused on the overarching aspects and responsibilities of leading staff and teams, managing multiple projects, organization and prioritization, and their own spiritual journey. Because this happens so frequently, I walk a small group of leaders through weekly personal coaching over a course of 3 months.

Here’s how it works:

  • This private group is made up of staff from churches across North America. Some are very large, others are small.
  • I spend 45 minutes to one hour per week with each person via live video on Google Hangout.
  • I set weekly goals for mentees to achieve by the following week’s meeting.
  • My coaching focuses on increasing their relational effectiveness with staff and volunteers, developing better leadership and management skills, as well as encouraging a deeper spiritual walk.
  • Additionally, I use part of each week’s time to provide consulting on technical & organizational issues specific to their situation.

Who I coach:

I have a mix of church leaders, communication, and technical church staff members. The common denominator is that these are individuals who are good at what they do, but need to be great at leading others, too. In a local church, the added issues of leading non-paid volunteers and working cross-functionally with multiple departments is challenging. I help my mentees step into the necessary roles of leadership and management with practical systems and processes, healthy conflict resolution, and a clear focus on creating a healthy culture.

The cost is low, but the commitment is high.

At only $500 per month, this is a very strong value. However, I do require that each individual take this seriously, because I limit the group to a maximum of 6 people to ensure each mentee gets my very best. To apply for 3 months of coaching (Jan ’15 – Mar ’15), fill out the contact form below and you’ll receive a preliminary set of questions to answer; your answers are what I use to select my coaching candidates.


NOTE: If you attended a workshop or webinar of mine recently and have my special promo code, use it to get 2 coaching calls per week.

I am thankful for Anthony’s influence and mentorship in my life. The leadership truths that he conveyed resonated in a place deep within my soul and began a change in my heart. After years of being hardened by ministry, I am now beginning to find my groove again as a leader. For me, this was worth many times the cost of the coaching.

I have never experienced mentorship/discipleship like this before. I left each session encouraged, challenged, hopeful, reflective and exhausted – all in a good way! It is without hesitation that I recommend Anthony Coppedge to anyone looking to bring fresh perspective, leadership, and vision to their church or ministry organization at any level.

Anthony, your coaching has been like a ministry greenhouse. The growth and development I have felt and experienced has been incredible. It has been a great experience for me and my ministry!

A year after our coaching, what I have been able to do would not have been possible without the time I spent in your coaching program. The lessons learned from our time affect the things I do every single day. In fact, your willingness to coach beyond simply the tech areas of the job were incredibly valuable.

My coaching with Anthony has been invaluable to me both personally and professionally. During my three months of consulting with Anthony I have become closer to God and learned how to be a better manager. We achieved so much in three months.

Anthony has mentored me in tech, production, and systematic leadership. He jump-started the original vision I had for what production could be at Crossroads Church. If you need a systems guy or mentor or someone to look at what you’re doing and show you where and how it can be better, Anthony is your man.
