SOLUTIONS FOR CHURCHES AND PASTORS
A Lot is Riding on How Your Church Leadership Functions
The effective pursuit of your mission, the hopes of your congregation, and your reputation in the world all count on the unity and skill of your pastoral team and leaders.
Despite the best intentions, deep faith commitments, and noble missions, churches struggle to field and maintain healthy staff teams and senior leaders.
VOCA Offers Effective and Discrete Leadership Solutions to Churches:
Engagements focused on maximizing influence, deepening soft skills, managing stakeholder expectations, and maintaining long-term resilience.
Delivering training experiences that deepen trust, widen joy, and empower a staff team to lean on the strengths of each member.
Advising boards on structure, culture, staff supervisor functions, and hiring decisions.
Working with pastors and boards to implement healthy, momentum-producing pastoral transitions including internal advisory services and vocational coaching for exiting staff.
The VOCA Distinctives
FAITH BAKED IN
Our team of Christ-followers weave Kingdom principles and disciplines to anchor leadership transformation in the way of Jesus.
BUILT BY THE COACH APPROACH
We lead with listening. We tailor each solution to meet your specific objectives and outcomes.
Every framework we use is proven in the real world of ministry and business.
Robust and innovative interaction with powerful concepts drives lasting change.
FACTS ARE OUR FRIENDS
We use data to replace opinion and conjecture with facts, driving development goals and outcomes.
We leverage learning cycles to produce the kind of results that justify the investment.
THE BEST TEAM ON THE FIELD
Most of our training engagements will include at least two consultants to keep the energy and interest flowing.
AN EYE ON ROI
Even as a church, you need to think about return on investment for the funds you invest in leadership and team growth. We embrace the need for development initiatives to justify the investment and help our clients do the math.
Case Study: An Interim Pastor’s Path to Succession Success
“Just taking one hour every few weeks to have someone listen and ask penetrating questions helped to clarify my feelings, clarify my thinking, and allowed me to think outside the box.
For any church or church leader considering working with VOCA, make it happen. Hopefully, your church will make an investment in you. It’s worth it, and don’t wait. Dive in—I wish that I had done this earlier in ministry and more often.”
—Tracy Troxel, Senior Pastor, Stone Hill Church of Princeton
