Rebuilt Parish Coaching

Guiding Teams from Ideas to Implementation


What is Rebuilt Parish Coaching?

At Rebuilt, our mission is to make disciples by helping parishes make disciples. We believe the best way to encourage you in this mission is to walk along side your team while navigating the rebuilding efforts at your parish.

This is a pivotal moment in the life of the local parish church. Now more than ever, a parish leadership team needs not only resources but partners - a Coaching Team - to help take your rebuilding efforts from ideas to implementation. 

Rebuilt Coaching includes group learning and personal coaching. Plus, we have a curriculum built around our Strategic Anchors of Leadership, the Weekend Experience and Growing Deeper & Wider in Discipleship.
