Coaching helps you go from where you are to where you want to be.

If you’re a Youth Pastor, you need a coach.
You need someone who has walked the road you’re walking.
You need someone to encourage, challenge, inspire, and help you do the best job you can do.
As your coach, I can help you see your potential, develop your skills, and reach your goals.
"Thanks for all the info and great ideas!"
Darrell Gaines, Youth Pastor at Crossway Church in Elon, North Carolina
How does it work?
We will use the GROW Model of Coaching to clarify your areas of focus, define your goals, assess your current reality, explore your viable options, and create a practical way forward.
We will meet for one 45-minute Zoom session each week. You will also receive unlimited email coaching so you'll never be stuck wondering what you should do next. I'm walking with you every step of the way.
"Thank you for everything you've done. The lessons that I've learned from you are extremely valuable. There's no doubt that I've become a better youth pastor. Three months ago we had 50 students. Last week we had 70!" - J.J. Lane, Student Pastor at Westside Family Church, Lenexa, Kansas
Resources. From administrative templates to games to message series, I can connect you with resources to immediately take your ministry to the next level.
Strategy. Some things create more impact and more results than others. I can help you discover what’s holding you back and how to move forward.
Growth. Every ministry I've led has tripled in size. I will share the key components of my system with you and help you implement them in your own context.
Volunteers. Your ministry will only be as good as the leaders around you. I can help you recruit, train, and inspire your volunteers.
Communication. How you say what you say is important. I can help you craft compelling messages that get students to respond.
Personal Development. You want to stay in ministry for the long haul. I can help you be more productive while finding the balance that will keep you from burning out.
*If you would like to address something else, I’ll be glad to discuss any area that you want to improve.
I'll let Super Mario illustrate the process for you...
"As a coach, Trevor is consistent, invested, and intentional with every conversation. He makes you feel like he's in the room with you, grinding out ideas, and wrestling through any issues as a partner in ministry. When you work with Trevor, you will start to see the results you've been hoping for in your life and ministry." -Kyle Holder, UMC Youth Pastor and Worship Leader

Why should I trust you?
I have over a decade of experience leading youth ministries in small traditional churches and large contemporary ones. Every ministry I've led has tripled in attendance. That's not a fluke. Everyone who has implemented the changes I've recommended has also seen growth in their ministries. Additionally, I have a Doctor of Ministry degree, teach youth ministry classes as an adjunct professor, and have written 9 books addressing youth ministry leadership and spiritual growth. If you can't trust me about this subject, who will you trust?
When are the weekly Zoom sessions?
The Zoom sessions will be whenever you schedule them. Every week looks different in youth ministry, so I will send you a link to my calendar and you can select the day and time that works best for you. If that means we talk on the same day at the same time each week, that's great. If that means we talk on a different day at a different time each week, that's fine too. Coaching is about helping you in your ministry, so I will work with your schedule to get you the help you need at a time that works for you.
What if I have a question between the Zoom sessions?
With this coaching program, you will have unlimited email support from me. You won't be walking alone. If something comes up, email me. If you have a question, email me. If you need help on-the-fly, email me. I will answer and you'll be back on track.
If I've read your books, why do I need coaching?
My books give you the ideas you need to reach students and build your ministry. Coaching is about encouragement, implementation, and accountability that is specific for you and your context. If you've read one of my books and thought, "I should do that," but you haven't done it, then coaching is the perfect next step.
What if I want more than 6 months of coaching?
That's not a problem. Just sign up for more and we'll keep going. I want to help you see your potential, develop your skills, and reach your goals. If you're taking action and making progress, then I will work with you as long as you want.
Do you accept everyone into the coaching program?
No. Some people aren't ready to be coached. They simply aren't coachable. Besides that, some people work in contexts that are very different from the ones with which I'm familiar. If that's the case, then I think it's best to be honest about it. I try to discern these things during the 30-minute Discovery Call that kicks off this whole process. There's no reason to have you start a journey that won't be helpful for you.
Is there a group coaching program, like a cohort?
Yes. I offer group coaching as an option through my Patreon page. It's called "Office Hours." It's a weekly group Q & A on Zoom where you can ask anything and receive honest feedback from supportive peers.
Will you come to my church?
On-site visits are not included in this coaching program. If you would like me to come to your church, observe your ministry, and make recommendations, then email me and we can discuss that. However, that's not part of this coaching program.
Do you offer a payment plan?
No. The 3-month coaching option is discounted by 10% and the 6-month option is discounted by over 15% because they are longer commitments and higher up-front costs. If those options don't work for you, you can continue with the month-to-month option for as long as you need.
Can I get a refund?
No. I am confident in my coaching. If you put in the work, you will see results and make progress toward your goals. This is not a grow-your-ministry-quickly promise or scheme. I believe in taking action, making observations, and trying again. That's how you make incremental improvements and see improved results in your ministry. I do my best to discern if you're the kind of person who is willing to do those things during the initial Discovery Call. If you are, then we'll be a great fit.
