Counseling & Coaching Support

We offer programs in congregational leadership, conflict resolution, setting boundaries and self care.  Our programs are designed to help ministry professionals lead balanced lives as they serve.

From its inception, Ministry Development Services has concentrated its efforts in three distinct yet interrelated areas of service: supporting pastors, assessing candidates for ministry, and providing educational resources. Our core programs are designed to assist pastors and church leaders including lay leaders, missionaries and church planters throughout their calls to ministry. Services include assessment, career and retirement planning, personal and professional guidance, counseling and crisis intervention. Participants are encouraged to involve spouses and other family members whenever appropriate.
