About Mark

Hi, my name is Mark Jones. I’m a full-time pastor, a retired Air Force NCO, and a trained leadership coach. I have 39 years of combined ministry, military, and business leadership experience. 

In 2016 I began to meet with Christian leaders to study their successes and failures. Many of these conversations I recorded and are now available in podcast form. Pastors, missionaries, business leaders, and educators shared from the heart.

I added what I learned from these leaders to my experience and now I offer it to you as a Christian coach. Trained by The Professional Christian Coaching Institute and pursuing ICF certification, you will receive professional coaching from a Christian point of view.

Over the years I have helped:
  • Military members incorporate biblical principles into their leadership
  • Churches clarify their values and mission
  • Missionaries build support teams
  • Ministries find their footing
  • Young leaders learn to lead
Here are some of my more successful coaching programs:

•   AchieveNow – Two 45-minute coaching sessions per month designed around your needs and your agenda. Which project needs clarity? What are your essential outcomes? What steps should you take to sustain momentum? I will come alongside and be your partner. Great for all leaders.
•   ConnectNow – Monthly coaching to help you build your personal network. Missionaries, church planters, sales and business personnel benefit from this program. The number of sessions per month varies based on your needs.
•   LeadNow – A monthly 60-minute coaching session focused on developing your personal leadership skills. In each session, we examine a biblical principle and apply it to your situation. Those new to leadership find this program very helpful.

Distinctives of Christian Coaching

•    We will ask God to be a part of every coaching session. Your coaching session will be a three-way conversation – the Holy Spirit, the coach, and you. 
•    I am a Christian who coaches Christians. Our identity in Christ impacts everything. So it is only appropriate that who we are will impact the coaching session.
•    I will encourage you to consider God’s will and plan for the situation. When appropriate, Scripture will be used to create awareness, design actions, and formulate solutions. Why? Because Scripture is the final authority on all matters of faith and life.
•    Our best life is discerned not designed. We will seek and discern the life and leadership God has designed for you. 

The purposes of a person's heart are deep waters,
but one who has insight draws them out.
Proverbs 20:5
