A few testimonials about me and my Leadership Coaching Impact on Christian Leaders for the Kingdom
Ken is a friend and co-laborer in the gospel ministry. He has a passion for ministry and seeing others be successful in ministry. He is a wise counselor and faithful friend to pastors and church planters. I recommend him highly.
West Ridge Church
Ken and I recently worked together in a fast growing church plant. With his help we were able to implement a new ministry dashboard and an effective spiritual growth process that included; spiritual decisions, assimilation, small groups, and volunteer systems. I don’t know what I would have done without him. If you need to close the backdoor…call him now!
I got to know Ken about a year ago and was immediately impressed with his servant attitude and Kingdom mindset. He has come along side LAUNCH Network and has been a valuable asset in helping not only assess church planters but also work with them to develop customized growth plans that are helping them develop as spiritual leaders. He has been a huge help to our organization.
Chief Launch Officer
Ken has a passion for the local church. I have seen God use that passion in a very powerful way with our staff and leadership at Elevate Christian Church. We were able to move from a church that wanted to do great things for God into a church that is doing great things for God.
Elevate Christian Church
Ken is a valuable asset to your ministry. If you’re just starting out in a ministry He gets you out of the gate on the right foot. If you’re in an established ministry, Ken will help you straighten your stride out and improve what you’re already doing.
Capital City Christian Church
The time spent with Ken was very beneficial to me. He took the time to listen and provide valuable imput about our ministry and ministry systems. He also was able to help me and the Church in areas where we were weak in, whether that was in our systems or technology. He will be a great partner and friend for any ministry.
Life Point Church
Ken has a God given gift and wisdom to take a look in from the outside and “Understand” what is functioning and what is causing you to spin your wheels. Keep your pen and paper handy because you will not want to miss the inevitable “Write it Down Moment” when Ken swings his bat and hits it out of the park!
I have known Ken for a little over a year now and I can confidently say that he is a well qualified leader and gifted strategist. Ken has sat in on a number of our staff meetings and has contributed some excellent ideas as well as made some keen observation about our ministry and staff. I have also gotten to know Ken and his family personally and I know from firsthand experience that he is a man of God and a loving father and husband. I would recommend Ken to any church needing strategic coaching and consulting.
Director of Ministry
West Ridge Church
West Paulding Campus
Ken McGarity has not only been a good friend through the years but someone who I frequently seek out when I need advice with my ministry as well as my personal life. Even though I’ve had over 20 years of experience in ministry I still trust Ken to give me some fresh perspective. Sometimes I’m so close to the forest that I can’t see the trees. Ken’s approach is based not only on his vast knowledge and experience in ministry but I can trust that his advice, guidance and accountability are truly lead of the Holy Spirit. He is certainly using the gifts that God has given him to come along side to coach me in areas that help me to minister more effectively. I cherish his Godly leadership and wisdom.
East Paulding High School
First Priority Ministries
Ken was a great asset to our church. He helped us to come up with personalized assimilation processes for our church and to come up with systems for data tracking that were personalized to our current and future needs. He has a unique way of seeing the big picture and making sense out of difficult processes.
New Season Church
It was so helpful to have Ken McGarity serve with the spiritual formation team at our local church. From developing church ministry systems to actively engaging in system action steps, I learned a lot about making ideas happen.
