New Leadership Coaching Network Starting Soon!

A couple of weeks ago, we opened applications for the new leadership coaching networks that will begin this Spring with The UnStuck Group. The deadline for applications is February 28, but applications have already been coming in and these new coaching networks will probably fill up before then.

Still on the fence about whether or not to participate? Here’s what others have said:

Paul Alexander is a natural leader and a great coach. He’s strategic, constantly learning, and has been very helpful to me in my ministry leadership and management.”
– Mike Work, Vice President of Operations at Youth Specialties

“When I have a leadership question Paul is always one of my first calls. He is a gifted leader and strategist. Paul knows how to ask the right questions to properly diagnosis current systems, and the unique capacity to help teams formulate a plan that is both practical and attainable. Working with Paul has been an encouragement and has stirred in me the desire to be a better leader.”
– Aaron McRae, Senior Pastor of Hillside Community Church in Alta Loma, CA

“Paul Alexander is simply brilliant when it comes to helping pastors and churches get laser-focused on their purpose, process and values. I believe he is one of the top strategic thinkers in the church today. After connecting with him, you will be encouraged, inspired and equipped.”
– Kyle Wall, Senior Pastor of Atlantic Shores Baptist Church in Virginia Beach, VA

“Paul is a very talented leader who knows how to form and implement strategic plans, while encouraging and building leaders in the process. He is methodical in planning his approach, and builds his processes to include appropriate goals, steps, budgets, and measurement for completion. During my time working with Paul, he demonstrated how to focus on projects and refocus when scope changed or obstacles rose up. While learning from Paul, he made things “reproducible” which has allowed me to keep my teams on task and lead them to do the same.”
– Kerry Dodd, CFO of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, WA

You can get more details about the next Coaching Network on my website.

What’s next?

Complete the Coaching Network Application. The Phoenix Leadership Coaching Network that I’m leading will be limited to no more than 12 leaders and begins in April 2014. I’d like you to consider joining us. The deadline for applications is February 28, 2014.

Your Church Can be Both Missional and Attractional this Christmas

 

This year Sun Valley Community Church is partnering with Albertsons Grocery Store to provide more than 10,000 boxes of food to local families in need through local food banks like the Salvation Army. Through the public nature of the Out of the Box 2.0 campaign Sun Valley has intentionally chosen to be both misssional and attractional at the same time. Yes, it’s possible to be both. The power of this partnership has made it easy for people to be involved. People can pick up a box to fill and bring back to any Sun Valley Campus during normal weekend worship services. They can stop any Albertsons store and scan the UPC code on the flyer they receive at church and the food will be delivered directly to the food banks. Anyone from the community who stops by an Albertsons with an Out of the Box 2.0 display in it can participate as well. Finally Albertsons is staying open late on Sunday evening the 22nd and we’re encouraging everyone from Sun Valley to go and do their shopping for Out of the Box 2.0 that evening as the Salvation Army Trucks will be there ready to load up!

The hungry are all around us:

  • 82,000 Phoenix Valley households don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
  • That’s enough refrigerators to reach rim to rim and back again at the Grand Canyon!
  • It’s enough dinner tables to reach the top of Camelback Mountain 130 times!
  • According to the 2010 US Census Bureau the average household in Arizona has 2.63 occupants. We’re talking about 215,660 hungry people!
  • That’s enough people to fill a city almost the size of Scottsdale!

If you live in the Phoenix Valley I’d like to invite you to be a part of Out of the Box 2.0 and make a real difference by changing these statistics. Follow this link to discover how you can join the movement! It’s our community…it’s our responsibility!
