The Leadership Through Relationship Cohort is specifically designed to equip church leaders to identify, train, and develop healthy leaders in the local church.

Monthly video based cohort calls, monthly one to one private coaching calls, along with selected readings will help leaders develop other healthy leaders who will serve in many facets of church leadership­ including ministry leaders, deacons, elders, and church planters.

The cost of the cohort is $1550 with scholarships available to members of Sojourn Network. The cost includes monthly video cohort calls, monthly one to one private coaching calls with Kevin Galloway, and an in ­person retreat with food and lodging included.

What others are saying…

The Vibrant Leadership Cohort was a balm to my soul during a tough season of ministry and transition. Kevin is a patient and cautious coach who takes time to understand and seek clarity on unique situations before offering valuable counsel. I don't want to simply survive in ministry but to thrive and have gas left in the tank for my family, this was a valuable investment towards seeking that end. It's not only helpful to have an experienced guide, but a band of brothers with which you can share burdens and become vulnerable, I found both in my time spent in the Vibrant Leadership Cohort.

Kevin has great insight and perspective from all his years of pastoring and coaching pastors. He led our cohort through different materials that would reveal, challenge, and encourage any leader or pastor’s heart. He also creates an environment where you get to know the other guys from around the country on a meaningful level of transparency and honesty. In the one-to-one calls, Kevin is concerned about your soul. He is able to offer helpful Godly insight and answers to a wide array of questions and circumstances whether you’re in the first few years of planting/pastoring or leading other types of teams. I would highly recommend his leadership cohort.

In a culture where many pastors can feel isolated or alone, the Vibrant Leadership Coaching Cohort has been a wellspring of wisdom, brotherhood, accountability, and renewal for me as a leader. It's more than just a sharing of best practices in ministry. It's a sharing of one another's burdens, celebrations, anxieties, and victories. I'd recommend it for any pastor/leader who wants a true vibrant leadership."

The Vibrant Leadership cohort helped me in a variety of ways that I am grateful for. Truly vibrant leadership begins with my own communion with God and the cohort helped me to understand this reality in new and thought-provoking ways. I also greatly appreciated Kevin’s personal care for my own soul. Kevin models for us what he is preaching to us. I would highly recommend this cohort and Kevin’s ministry to all Lead Pastors.

Josh Jean | Lead Pastor, Sojourn Community Church, Beaumont, TX

Being a part of the Vibrant Leadership Coaching Cohort was an incredibly helpful resource for me as a pastor stepping in to lead my first church. The coaching I received from Kevin was relevant and practical and the encouragement from other brothers in ministry was incredibly valuable. I whole heartedly recommend Kevin Galloway and the work he is doing with Vibrant Leadership!
