Ultimate Workshop Experience for Church Leaders
The best known Biblical model for leading God’s people is that of a shepherd. But who in the 21st Century today really knows what a shepherd does and the responsibility that he bears? While in some parts of the world, there are shepherds that care for sheep, this imagery is better known than understood. Who understands the work of a shepherd in the 21st Century and what does it mean?
Church leaders across the board struggle with understanding their role as a shepherd. What are the principles that guide a person today who dons the role of a shepherd?
This workshop will expose you to principles and guidelines that are most helpful in putting into practice what a church leader should do, and must do, to succeed in his role. Self-evaluation will unlock and open the door for a shepherd to understand himself and then understand his sheep. You will relate better not only to your fellow shepherds, but also to the sheep that God has entrusted to you by attending this workshop.

Ministerial/Pastoral Life Coach Training
Never before in history has there been as great a need for ministers and pastors to have a support system. Not just from within, for that’s expected in any church; but a support system from without that can assist pastors and church leaders from an outside perspective so your blind spots can be discovered and addressed. This is one of the reasons for the existence of Myers-Davis Life Coaching Institute. For example, many ministers are involved, like it or not, in counseling. But the fact is, many ministers are not trained in counseling; they are trained in ministry, i.e., the ministry of the Word. Counseling without training can be harmful to the client and have huge legal consequences. We offer an alternative to counseling, it’s called life coaching. Life coaching is neither counseling or therapy. It is the ability thru asking specific questions to lead the client to discover the answer to their problems themselves. Asking the right questions, at the right time, and in the right way can produce moments of discovery that leads the client to recognize the answer themselves as well as a strategy that leads to action so that the problem can be solved. As a life coach, you do not offer advice or counseling. You are trained in leading the client down the pathway to the answer by the questions you ask. Since you do not offer advice, but only ask questions, it lessens the liability that potentially could come your way if you are operating as a therapist or counselor without a license.
By attending Myers-Davis Life Coach Institute Training for Ministers and Pastors, you will learn how to:
- Ask powerful questions that lead your members to the answers from within themselves
- Help your members discover their Life’s Purpose
- Help members gain clarity and establish a clear action plan
- Help individual members reach their highest potential
- Help your church leaders and teachers reach their goals to meet the needs of church as a whole
- Find yourself re-evaluating your own Life’s Purpose and re-establish your personal goals
- And much more!
