Bishop James ChapmanGreetings in the Matchless Name of Jesus! I am elated to share how grateful we are to the Lord for the enormous support that you and your team have provided through the Spiritual Leadership Development Intensive. We prayerfully arrived at the decision to make the financial investment and participate in the training after discovering that innovative tools and a fresh perspective were needed to help us to fulfill the Great Commission given by the Lord Jesus. (Matthew 28:19 & Acts 2:38).

Creating our team and discovering where to begin was challenging, however, following your guide, helped us to effectively navigate through these preliminary stages. In addition, you encouraged engaging our stakeholders, what a brilliant step! During this stage, we discovered the areas of impact within our ministry, as well as areas that require growth. Following your guide to garner stakeholder participation compelled us to realign our church’s mission and vision statements. Through the discoveries found in the these reports, we were able to answer the question, “where are we, compared to where we want to be?” As a result of this discovery, we shifted our attention to four critical areas: Program Development. Discipleship. Financial Viability and Experience. We are learning so much!

We couldn’t be happier with the reinforcement that your training sessions and coaching tools have provided. We are progressing forward with clarity and the beauty of this written plan. Again, thank you so very much. We greatly appreciate the SLDI Team.

April BristowI decided to hire a consultant to invest in myself and my ministry team for several reasons. First, I wanted to work with a coach who had extensive and broad knowledge in what they taught as well as the ability to translate that knowledge into a ministry setting. Second, I wanted an experience where my team and I could take our plans to the next strategic level. Third, I was as interested in learning about what we could STOP doing as a ministry team and the things we needed to START doing. As a result of working with Cornelia and her team, we have implemented a clear strategy that maintains a high standard of care for our congregation while establishing meaningful boundaries for my ministry team, without us burning out! The results that we have received from my team is opening up possibilities for working with Cornelia in other ministry areas in our large membership church.

The biggest insight for me has been the fruit that we continue to bear even after our time with Cornelia. We are able to continue to dream and refine our process of working while improving our communication in ways we did not before our time with Cornelia. Any pastor or ministry leader who is seriously committed to reaching the next level God is calling them to would benefit from working with Cornelia. She is spiritually grounded, compassionate and really cares about your ministry thriving. We have been given keys to the kingdom, with Cornelia’s help we are using our tools more effectively!

Bishop PulliamWhen the opportunity arose for me to work with 3C Consulting through the Spiritual Leadership Development Intensive, I knew it would be well worth the investment. The personal coaching calls have been extremely beneficial in many ways. Personally, I’ve identified a number of areas that I need to improve on. In particular. learning to maximize my productivity at the right time for me has been huge. For the ministry we have become much more focused and engaged in the vision of the ministry which has increased our ability to serve more effectively and efficiently.

The virtual intensives have been incredibly helpful. The ability to listen to the challenges and excitement of other pastors and leaders has been just extremely rewarding. Being able listen to what others are facing and how they are overcoming those challenges. Cornelia and Ron’s knowledge, expertise and professionalism have been exceptional. Not everyone can work with Pastors and hold their own. They have merged knowledge. experience and skill almost seamlessly in an effort to minister to those who minister and that is not an easy task.

Truthfully. I was a bit concerned about the cost, as it was not in my budget. However, I’ve learned if I can’t invest in myself. I should not expect anyone else to invest in me. This investment has been will worth it. I have already seen dividends.
