God Shapes Leaders

Coaching tools that help you stay on mission

God Shapes Leaders is a two-day coaching workshop hosted by Daniel Beutler and Jason Dyck. Coaching is crucial not only for pastors and church leaders, but also for leaders in the marketplace and industry. Anyone who has influence over staff or volunteers would benefit from Daniel and Jason’s teachings. We would encourage you to invite your staff to attend as a team and to begin building a coaching culture in your church and workplace.

Jason DyckJason Dyck is a husband, dad and pastor (Elm Creek MB Church) who loves to see the church on a trajectory toward the fulfillment of its mission.

Jason is passionate about leadership and discovering its healthy impact in the church. He really doesn’t like working out, but does enjoy playing golf and hockey and watching the Dallas Cowboys win.


DL001_dBeutlerDaniel Beutler currently serves as part of the L2L team of the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. His role is to facilitate the life-long learning interests of leaders and pastors in the areas of spiritual renewal, theological enrichment, and the acquisition of leadership skills. Daniel is passionate about helping leaders and churches discern their next steps to become the leaders and churches God wants them to be.


Coaching is about facilitating discovery through questions. As a coach you come alongside others in a discernment process. How has God been at work in someone’s life? What is He shaping them to be and do? What is he inviting them to? Coming alongside others, drawing out with questions, and empowering them to take the next step in their journey with God in the various spheres of life is an exciting adventure. During the two-day coaching training you will become familiar with four essential coaching skills:

  • Listening – actively listening to gain understanding of the person’s context
  • Expanding – helping the person gain greater awareness of the issues and God’s shaping process
  • Focusing – moving toward pinpointing the underlying issue(s)
  • Empowering – providing encouragement toward implementing actionable steps and accountability

During this interactive equipping time participants are given the opportunity to practice the various skills they are gaining. We will also introduce you to the COACH model, a five-step process that provides helpful guardrails to ensure that the coaching conversation is moving toward actionable steps. C-onnect establishes an environment of rapport and trust. O-utcome sets a clear agenda for the conversation. A-wareness encourages discovery through reflective dialogue, insights, and shifts in perspective. C-ourse moves the conversation toward actionable steps. H-ighlights reviews learning and the conversation. 

If you are looking for practical ways to come alongside others in their journey with God, this two-day training will provide you with tools to serve others in listening to God, depending on Him, and empowering them toward actionable steps and accountability. Take advantage of our early bird registration and save $10 off the full registration price.
