What others are saying...

"The Vibrant Leadership Cohort led by Kevin Galloway has been a invaluable blessing to my life and ministry. As a church planting pastor I'm always in need of growth in my leadership skills and this cohort and Kevin's coaching has been a tremendous help in growing in those, but that's only part of the benefit.  This cohort has truly been a breath of fresh air. By focusing on healthy leadership and personal soul care, it's helped me not only grow as a leader, even more it has helped me grow as a man of God, helping me keep a closer watch on my life and doctrine. I'm a better and healthier leader for being a part of the Vibrant Leadership Cohort. I highly recommend it.”

The Vibrant Leadership cohort was a gift to my relationship with Jesus. Amidst the busyness of pastoral ministry, it’s easy to neglect the health of one’s own soul. This experience was grounded in the admonition of Jesus, though, where he asks us "what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?” (Matt. 16:26). Vibrant Leadership is about learning to know and cultivate your most precious possession. This is not for those looking for best practices for surviving a ministry job, but for those seeking to thrive as child of God despite the circumstances of life and work. The journey was sobering, hopeful, and ultimately left me seeing and experiencing God as a dear friend who loves me deeply.
