Several years ago I made a transition into a new Pastorate in Carollton, Texas.Within a few short months I found myself swamped in the mire of "DO!" without much time for those Spiritual Disciplines that help center ministry in a relationship with Jesus. Simply put, I knew I needed help evaluating and restructing some things in my own walk with the Lord if I were to ever succeed at leading the church of my new assignment. Coach Jerry became just the answer!
As a coach, Jerry has helped me to restructure my own spiritual disciplines and patterns as well as professionally aided me in giving direction to our church. He is an adept listener who comes armed with just the right questions to help leaders "think outside of and beyond the box". If you are at a place in ministry where you might benefit from having someone walk with you through needed change or if you are simply looking to grow your own leadership skills, Coach Jerry is just the servant of God to help!

"I entered a coaching relationship with Dr. Jerry Christopher in the summer of 2010. His skill as a coach was obvious to me in our very first session. As a new Director of Missions, he has helped me focus on getting a good start in a new field. His ability to ask powerful questions has helped me envision the future of the Baptist Association I now lead. He has encouraged me to discover real answers for genuine concerns in this new calling. He possesses the ability to focus ones attention on the real issues thus providing clarity. Once I discovered clarity for my objectives, he systematically and skillfully helped me set goals and steps that would help me be successful. If you are looking for an excellent coach, I recommend Dr.Jerry with full confidence."

"The coaching relationship has been a turning point in my growth as a pastor. Having someone to facilitate insight as well as serve as an active listener has been invaluable in developing a clear vision as well as developing a strategic plan for carrying that vision out. It is a joy to know that I have this kind of resource available which has consistently resulted in practical ideas and solutions, meeting real needs I face in the day-to-day work of leading people on missions.
