Executive Coaching

Elevate Your Ministry with

Executive Coaching by Church Boom

Welcome to a new era of leadership excellence within the Church.
Church Boom proudly presents its Executive Coaching Program, meticulously designed to empower pastors and church leaders with transformative strategies and insights.
Under the guidance of Chris Sonksen and our elite team of certified Church Boom Coaches, this program is your gateway to unprecedented growth and impact in your ministry.

In our executive coaching you'll find:

Clarity on taking your church to the next level.

A plan to grow your team and church.

Support to implement needed changes.


I say it often, "amateurs learn by trial-and-error, but professionals get coached!" As a pastor, you're dedicated to guiding, inspiring, and supporting your local church, but who supports you? Who helps you navigate the unique challenges and demands that come with your role?

I firmly believe that every pastor deserves a coach. A pastoral coach becomes your trusted partner, walking alongside you on your journey and providing the guidance, accountability, and unwavering support you need to fulfill your calling to the fullest.

Remember, you don't have to shoulder the weight alone. Embrace the power of  coaching and unlock your full potential as a pastor.

- Chris Sonksen


What others are saying —

"Executive coaching has been absolutely life changing for our ministry. As new lead pastors we spent the first couple years learning  everything the hard way, and we knew we needed proven coaching. Church Boom came alongside us and provided crucial wisdom, teaching, and strategy that launched us into a healthy, sustainable season of growth.

Executive coaching changed the game for myself and our team.

Coaching peels back the layers to help you get to the center of your pastoral heart…

Church Booms desire is to help you through coaching to become who and what God has called you to become…
Like an athlete, Chris’s coaching helps you to overcome barriers that have held you back.

How much does coaching cost?

Our executive coaching program is tailored to suit the specific needs of each church. We encourage you to schedule a free coaching call with us so we can work together to create a plan that is perfect for you.

Is financial assistance available?

Yes, as part of the Church Rescue Initiative, we have financial assistance available to help pastors access coaching. Please contact us to let us know of your need.

Am I guaranteed to see results?

While we cannot guarantee specific outcomes, we are proud of the transformative impact our coaching has had on countless pastors. Through our coaching program, we have witnessed the remarkable growth not only in the numerical expansion of churches but also in the personal leadership skills of pastors.

The effectiveness of our coaching lies in its personalized and supportive nature, which enables pastors to realize their full potential and lead their churches with newfound confidence and vision.

While results may vary, our commitment to empowering pastors remains unwavering, and we are dedicated to walking alongside each pastor on their unique journey to achieve lasting growth and fulfillment.

What's the difference between group coaching cohorts and executive coaching?

Our group coaching cohorts are virtual coaching groups that meet for 10 months every year. Each group follows a proven curriculum to overcome church growth barriers. These groups are led by a Church Boom certified team, and you will be part of a small group of pastors.

Our executive coaching is a personalized approach where we work with you and your team one-on-one, both virtually and in-person. This type of coaching is designed for pastors and churches who are determined to accelerate their church's growth.

Is coaching the same as consulting?

Church coaching and church consulting serve distinct purposes.

Coaching revolves around personal and professional growth, fostering deep relationships between coaches and pastors for ongoing support and empowerment. It focuses on developing leadership skills and enabling pastors to find their own solutions.

Consulting is solution-oriented, offering expert advice on specific challenges within a church. Consultants provide actionable recommendations but may have a more short-term involvement.

Both coaching and consulting play crucial roles in church growth, with coaching being personalized and empowering, while consulting offers specialized expertise for targeted issues.
