We come alongside leaders to encourage leaders’ strengths and to support the development of leadership confidence, skill, and insights as you address the challenges in your context. Leadership coaching focuses on understanding and engaging the leadership role, the congregational system, and the role of the leader in managing a complex congregation environment.
We create safe coaching spaces for self-reflection, learning, and skill-building allowing you to understand and address the conflicts within a congregation with greater insight, clarity, and confidence.
Facilitation & Decision-Making
Our team has a unique ability to see the big picture while paying attention to critical details related to congregational and relational health. With this, we support churches and their leaders to navigate tough conversations and make difficult decisions. Credence designs and facilitates meetings that allow congregations to efficiently and effectively achieve a cohesive sense of direction.
Mediation, Circles, & Conflict Transformation – Interpersonal & Group
Our commitment to healthy congregations and deep regard for those with whom we work defines our work with individuals and groups in conflict, as we support those involved to identify, and address concerns, to develop strategies for change and cultivate effective working relationships.
With a spirit of care, insight, and clarity, Credence supports individuals and congregations following an investigation related to allegations of harassment and/or discrimination. Activities to restore congregational health are determined in dialogue with the congregation and are tailored to meet each congregation’s needs. Restoration activities can include post-investigation coaching for any parties involved or impacted by the investigation, congregational health assessments, mediation, restorative circles, facilitated dialogue, workshops, etc.
