BOB'S COACHING SERVICE

Transient

Bob’s extensive experience in Christian publishing and church leadership combine to make him in-demand as a coach for aspiring authors, church planters, and others in ministry. 

Bob offers two coaching options, which can be accomplished via face-to-face appointments, telephone conferences, or Skype teleconferences: 

SIngle sessions as needed
Weekly sessions in twelve-week renewable terms

The coaching process begins with a single "diagnostic" session to identify your goals and determine the areas where coaching will best serve you.  The cost for this initial session is $95 (because every coaching situation is unique, the cost of subsequent sessions may be more or less, depending on the agreement between you and Bob).
