I am particularly pleased to commend Missional Formation Coaching. This gift from a previous wild time is a wise guide, whether we be a practitioner or coach or preferably both.
Graham Cray Former Bishop of Maidstone, and Archbishops’ Missioner and Leader of the Fresh Expressions Team
More than ever before, missional leaders need help to be able to navigate the changes and challenges of the chaotic world we live in... This is a deeply spiritual and timely resource that will help leaders thrive by promoting healthy rhythms of spiritual and missional practices.

Missional Formation Coaching is a wonderfully accessible and very timely resource for those interested in growing and helping others grow in ministry. You will not be disappointed!
Kimberly D. Reisman Executive Director, World Methodist Evangelism
Missional Formation Coaching is a vital and much-needed resource for church planters because church planting is one of the most demanding disciplines in the church today.
Ric Thorpe Bishop of Islington
In Missional Formation Coaching, I discovered a treasure chest. It has gems of venerable spiritual wisdom yearning to be invested in a new generation of missional pioneers.
Larry Walkemeyer Lead Pastor, Light & Life Church and Director of Equipping, Exponential
Using time-tested ancient practices, Missional Formation Coaching is a valuable resource for anyone who coaches missional leaders today.
Len Tang Director, Fuller Church Planting Initiative
In the noisiness of today, 'Missional Formation Coaching' provides a holistic, well-grounded approach to the transformation and renewing of our minds. After all, coaching is not about just 'what we know.' It's about 'how we engage and apply' these truths to our lives.
So-Young Kang CEO & Founder, Gnowbe, Singapore
There are no well-worn paths for the mission of the church in these extraordinary times. This means that we need adaptive Spirit-led church leadership. MFC is a gift, and a timely resource for the church as God calls us forward in mission.
Revd Canon John McGinley New Wine Director of Church Planting Development
True disciples are formed by Christian community and engaged in mission to the world, but equally nurtured in daily moments (often apart and alone) abiding with their Lord. MFC integrates a vision for the Christian life - of both worship and mission, advance and retreat, working and waiting.
Revd Manik Corea Global Executive, the New Anglican Missionary Society (NAMS)
and Regional Team Leader for South-East Asia
Over the next decade, the church in the West needs to equip thousands of emotionally healthy leaders. Thanks to this time tested model of coaching; we have a road-map to get them there.
Revd Dr Christian Selvaratnam Director of the St Hild Centre for Church Planting Yorkshire, England
Missional Formation Coaching is a gift for God’s church today. This is undoubtedly a resource I will return to again and again, in prayerful conversation with others on the way.
Rev Canon Tim Lomax Director of Mission
Diocese of St Albans, UK
The effective coaching of leaders is a mission-critical lifeline thrown to leaders to help them navigate through the ebb and flow of ministry. Missional Formation Coaching introduces us to a unique coaching model that weds spiritual practices with missional practices.
Will Plitt Executive Director Christ Together
