How Exactly Does This Work?

Each month there's a 2-hour conference call (from 2:00pm - 4:00pm Eastern Time) where you and the other participants call in to a special conference call line with Nelson.

At the same time, you will receive a special Internet page where you log-in to see Nelson's notes. Basically, you are seeing his notes on your computer while talking via phone.

"There is no evidence to suggest that meeting in person is more effective than meeting virtually."

Madeleine Homan, Founder
Ken Blanchard Coaching

Each month Nelson will present the latest insights into leading your church. While each month will be devoted to a specific church systems, such as Assimilation, Stewardship, Small Groups, etc., he will also focus on specific topics relevant to each month's call such as preparing for Easter, planning a Christmas Offering, etc.

In addition there are also special guests who stop by for a few minutes from time to time (e.g., Rick Warren, Steve Stroope, Bill Cornelius, Perry Noble, Steve Merriman, Larry Osborne, Kerrick Thomas, etc.).

At the end of each call you are assigned an audio seminar and a book to study in preparation for the next book (some people have said that this 'guided learning' process is worth the entire investment in the coaching network).

About every other month there are special call-in times where you are able to ask Nelson specific questions about your church and situation (this is in addition to the unlimited email access you receive).

"I can be a tight wad and was very relunctant to join. Our church had gone no where in years, really lacking the systems to get from point A to point B. Since I joined our church has been totally transformed, we have a strategy and systems that are getting in place. Our attendance has probably doubled, our finances have grown and people are excited about what is going on. It has brought a tremendous clarity in my leadership and people can see where we are going. I would highly recommend giving yourself a year of super charged growth."


Devon Davoux
Cornerstone Church
Vermillion, SD

" I cant begin to tell you what a difference the network has made in my ministry. I had been faithfully meeting with my staff for years prior to the network. We were totally committed to growth but seemed to be at a loss as far as identifying some of the snags in our ministry. Through the network, not only have we been able to identify the areas our ministry was stalling in but we have also been given clear and effective solutions to see our ministry begin to grow again. I look forward to the next coaching network. The best is yet to be!"


Mark Cullum
Capitol Foursquare Church
Sacramento, CA

"You all have helped us so much!  My wife just left my office and she said,
'You have learned so much in this group.  I've seen so many things we are doing that we would have never thought of on our own.'  She is right."


Craig Walker
Lifeway Church
Celina, TX

"The tele-coaching network has proven to be very valuable tool. First, walking through the eight church systems has helped me not only improve existing systems in our church, but also completely recreate some systems that simply were not working. The material covered is immensely practical and applicable to church of any type. Simply being in a coaching network has encouraged me to set aside more time for strategic planning and vision casting for our church, something that too often was pushed to the back burner during the business of the week."


Jeff Smith
Real Life Community Church
Bel Air, MD

"My time in Nelson's tele-coaching network has been a gift from God in helping me understand the systems of our church and areas that need help and change. The information is always valuable and practical. At times it can be overwhelming as I try to take it all in at once. But over time I know that much of what I am learning is sinking in and bearing fruit. I look forward to the rest of my time in the network and to being part of another one in the near future."

Jon Beyer
First Lutheran Church
Hot Springs, AR

"Nelson's coaching has helped crystallize several leadership principles into hands-on, step by step actions. Our church has seen growth in leadership depth, volunteerism and risk taking. I would recommend this coaching network to anyone who wants to see their church grow and flourish."


Jon Quitt
Vineyard Community Church
Tuscaloosa, AL

"This experience has been priceless. Sure, I could have bought all of the resources and saved money, but it would have been like buying the top of the line skis, but not know how to ski. It's more than information, it's implementation. I wish someone would have explained this more in the beginning. Information with repetition and accountability has not only set me up on my skies but now I'm on my way down the hillside. Thanks!"


Michael Ortell
Pulaski Free Methodist Church
Hanover, MI

"I and the church I serve have benefited greatly from Nelson's expertise and has allowed us to think through critical issues that have kept us from realizing our potential in Christ. It gives me time personally to break away from the bump and grind of ministry and renew my passion and drive. I would highly recommend this coaching network to anyone and any church looking to invigorate its ministry."


Jim Pryor
Richfield Rd. Church
Flint, MI

"I believe that coaching is a must for a church planter. I am not sure we would have survived our first year without it. The support, wisdom, and personal encouragment have been pricless. Thank you Nelson and the coaching staff for standing beside us in our first year."


Kipp Penrod
Life House
Carlisle, TX

"This seminar has taken me to another level of leadership as a senior pastor. It has given me a stronger, birds-eye view of what is necessary for our church to be healthy. It has also taught me how to implement changes that will facilitate health in each key area of our church. This seminar will grow you and provide you will invaluable resources you can share with your whole team."


Chad McCartney
Grace Bible Church
Laredo, TX

The coaching network helps. From fresh ideas, practical solutions to common obstacles, cutting edge strategies for growth, to continual reminders regarding the age old neccesity of prayer and seeking God, it just helps.


Mat Weeks
Horizon Church
Surprise, AZ

"This stuff works! Nelson provides clarity in leadership, tools that are practical and user friendly, accountability in presentation, and a God centered structure for doing church the New Testament way. I would never be where I am as a leader and we would never be where we are as a church without this. This coaching network will always be a very special part of who God is forming me to be."

Randy Fields
The Gathering
Thomasville, GA

"Understanding the eight systems of a church is so vital and they should teach this in seminary. For example, stewardship system encouraged me to preach about finances with confidence and boldness."


Young McCann
Journey Christian Fellowship
San Luis Obispo, CA

"The Tele-Coaching Network has been very beneficial to me as Sr. Pastor and my staff. The sessions are very practical and easy to implement.The network has helped our church go to the next leval both spiritually and numerically."

Johnny Johnson
Gadsden Christian Fellowship
Gadsden, IA

"I know this sounds exaggerated but this network literally saved my ministry. I was about to quite the pastorate after 24 years but I decided to give this network a try. It was my last hope. We have seen an explosion in growth the past four months of this network and our giving is at record highs. We have even hired on a new staff member since beginning the network. This network is a MUST!."


Sheldon Boyd
Cornerstone Community Nazarene
Chino, CA

"Since joining the coaching network, more of our guests are becoming regular attenders. We have seen our giving recover after having been impacted negatively by the economy. Through the use of the Connection Card we have more communication than we have ever had. The material shared not only works in a city, it also works in a rural community."


Randy Joslin
The Oasis
Farmington, NM

"Our church had plateaued for three years, with an average attendance of 250 - in desperation I joined the Tele-coaching network. With the valuable insight and coaching, our average attendance is 450 and we have had more commitments to Christ, baptisms and new members in the past six months than in the past six years. Thanks again"


Larry Mask
City South Church
