2023 Pastor Coaching Cohort

Note: Registration is closed for this cohort, but please email info@knowingjesusministries.co if you'd like to hear when we'll offer our next cohort.

Our conviction is that the local church is the hope of the world. There’s nothing better than the local church when she’s healthy and living out her mission. We believe every local church deserves to be well fed and well led. That means when the pastor grows and sharpens his skills the church benefits. This coaching cohort exists to help pastors grow as shepherds for the glory of Christ and the health of their church.


Join Pastor Erik Reed in these coaching sessions just for pastors. The cohort will be limited to 20 log-ins and will run from February-July. There will be six virtual group sessions and one personal coaching session. Each of the group sessions will be recorded if you're unable to join live and will last approximately one hour.

The cost for the entire series is $795 for a log-in. Multiple pastors from the same church may view the virtual sessions, but the personal coaching session will be limited to one person per church.
