Event description

About this Event

Studies continue to reveal that leaders who participate in coaching are more effective and exhibit long-term vitality in their personal lives.

Coaching is a purposeful and focused relationship that encourages a healthy rhythm of reflection and action in a leader’s life. Coaching encourages leaders in areas where they may feel stuck or overwhelmed. With the help of the Holy Spirit, the coach’s purpose is to help the leader get “unstuck” by active listening, incisive question-asking, resourcing and reflection.

Coaching is not telling a leader what he or she should be doing. Instead, coaching seeks to frame situations by asking questions and inviting the leader into deeper reflection about their life and leadership in order to bring clarity to their context by drawing out of the leader what he/she already has inside of them.

About the trainer:

J.R. Briggs has three passions: to equip and invest in hungry kingdom leaders, to grow fruit on other people’s trees and to collaborate with others to create good kingdom mischief. In short, his calling is to partner with people who are called to follow Jesus while leading others.

With these passions in mind, he started Kairos Partnerships in 2011 where he serves leaders in the roles of whole-life leadership coach, consultant, speaker, professor, equipper, preacher, author and encourager of leaders.

For more than 15 years, J.R. has had the privilege to serve in pastoral roles at mega-churches, church plants and house church networks. Since starting Kairos Partnerships, he has invested in pastors and kingdom leaders in 28 states and Canada from 40+ denominations.

In addition to pastors, he has also invested in a wide variety of leaders, including college students, pastors, U.S. Olympic athletes, church planters, Chick-Fil-A operators, college administrators, athletic directors, attorneys, business owners and seminary students.

He received his Masters of Missional Theology degree at Biblical Theological Seminary and is currently finishing a Doctor of Ministry degree from Missio Seminary, writing his doctoral thesis on the need for question-based leadership in the future of the Church in North America.

He also serves as adjunct professor in the Practical Theology department at Missio Seminary as well as guest instructor at Friends University with the Apprentice Institute. He has guest lectured, taught and spoken at over a dozen colleges, universities and seminaries.

He also serves as the Director of Leadership & Congregational Formation for The Ecclesia Network as well as the Mid-Atlantic Coordinator and National Trainer for Fresh Expressions U.S. He is an affiliate consultant with Credo Higher Ed Consulting and as Lead Coach for Rooted Leadership Solutions.

He is the author, co-author and/or contributor of ten books and Bible studies (and well as a contributor for a not-yet-released study Bible) on a wide variety of topics, most of which seek to equip faith leaders for their health, equipping and flourishing. He has also published articles in publications including Christianity Today, the Huffington Post, American Bible Society, N.T. Wright Online, Relevant Magazine, Outreach Magazine and Faith & Leadership, among others (see full list here).

He is also the co-host of the Monday Morning Pastor podcast.

J.R. and his wife Megan have been married for over 18 years and have two sons, Carter and Bennett. They live in Lansdale, PA in the greater Philadelphia area.
