Clergy & Church Leadership



"Ag Fás" - Irish Gaelic term meaning growth, or blooming. 


At Ag Fás Coaching, the mission is very simple: to help clergy imagine, plan, and take the best next steps, that will help them grow in ministry, and leadership.


Clergy spend their vocational lives helping others move forward and grow in faith. Ministry can make pastors feel like they are being pulled in a hundred different directions and sometimes they just feel stuck. Getting going again can be difficult

This is when coaching helps.

I'm a professionally trained coach and an Elder in United Methodist Church with almost 25 years of church and non-profit leadership experience gained in both Northern Ireland and the United States.

I'd love to become your coach and help you take your best next steps in ministry and leadership!


The benefits of coaching are many:

  • 80% of people who receive coaching report increased self-confidence.

  • More than 70% benefit from improved work performance, relationships, and more effective communication skills.

  • 86% of companies report that they recouped their investment on coaching and more.

My experience in ministry has brought me so much joy and fulfillment over the years. But there have often been times when I felt like the entertainer spinning plates on a stage - frantically expending energy, leaping from one plate to the next just to keep the whole show going. And the global COVID-19 pandemic added an unprecedented layer of difficulty and challenge. I have had so many moments when this wonderful vocation left me feeling isolated, exhausted, and empty of vision, and if it had not been for coaching I honestly don't know where I would be now. Simply put, coaching made the difference.

Perhaps your story is similar or you have at least experienced some of what I have. In the same way it helped me, I believe that ministry coaching can help you, too. As your coach, I will create a safe space for you to process what you are journeying through in ministry. I will also help you rediscover your passion and vision, and I will ask you powerful questions that will unlock the answers within you and help you take your best next steps.
