Leadership Coaching assists clergy to gain clarity, utilize strengths, understand the emotional dynamics in their congregation from a systemic perspective, and work more effectively with staff and lay leaders. Coaching can be brief and oriented around resolving a particular issue; or a longer-term relationship for collaboration and exploring ministry strategies.

CCC Testimonials and Key Initiatives "I was so impressed (once again) with your insightfulness, your clarity, and your ability to communicate it all to us in a way that lit a fire under us all without singeing me (as pastor) or the congregation (Council). I am very hopeful about this as a springboard to the work we need and hope to do in the coming months.”
- Senior Pastor
“I cannot say enough good things about the CAT and its meaningful impact on the life of our congregation. The insights gleaned from this tool--and from the Samaritan Counseling Center consultants --have helped our congregants see themselves and their potential with new eyes.”
- UCC Pastor
“We utilized the CAT during our current pastoral transition period. The Samaritan Counseling Center consultants guided us through the CAT results giving us a deeper understanding of who we are as a congregation and how we can increase energy and satisfaction. Now we are in great position to search and call our next Pastor.”
- Lay Leader
"Every time leaders in our congregation attempted to develop a Strategic Plan or engage in a discernment process we discovered "some people" were saying one thing while we knew at least a few other people had different opinions. The CAT provided us with better data. The results helped us more fully grasp both our blessings as well as our specific challenges."
- Lutheran Pastor
The annual Leadership Series offered by CCC presents topics relevant to the challenges facing leaders today.
Clergy groups at Samaritan are ecumenical, promote collegial support, and are facilitated by leaders trained in organizational systems and dynamics who have also served in congregations.
Every congregation is a complex and unique emotional system, and “Organizational Intelligence” (OI) provides a structured way to measure and interpret the vitality, capacity, orientation and flexibility of a congregation – or many congregations within a region.
