Deep Dive Spirituality Group Coaching

Deep Dive Spirituality Group Coaching is Brian's premier coaching program for pastors and spiritually minded leaders.

You don't know where you will be in 3–5 years but decide that you will grow even 
-- deeper in your spiritual formation and emotional health
--more knowledgeable in Scripture and theology
--wiser in your use of time, words, and power
--healthier in your lifestyle so that you can serve God for the long haul.

Deep Dive Spirituality is a group coaching experience designed specifically for you to help you build up and strengthen spiritual muscles that you didn't even know you had. 

You'll enjoy new levels of growth through:

–Deepening your relationship with God and your experience of God’s grace and love apart from the "unholy Trinity" of fear, guilt, and shame

–Building new spiritual muscles by honestly owning both your strengths and weaknesses, your talents and your flaws

–Cultivating life enhancing habits rooted in ancient practices that are uniquely designed for your personality and that serve your highest and best self

–Taking immediate control of your time and learning to move through overwhelm and hidden fears

–Creating long-term goals for a truly abundant life–goals that rekindle your sense of mission and will pull you forward in your growth in love

–Transforming your study into times that feed your soul, mind, and body

–Gaining new interpretive skills from an award winning teacher of biblical studies

–Uncovering and experiencing transformation and healing for your deepest wounds that are sapping you of energy and joy

–Growing into the person God created you to be in a dynamic group experience that you can then replicate in your ministry context to expand your impact on the world

–Working with a small group of like-minded pastors and spiritual leaders to create solutions to your most difficult challenges in ministry

Dr. Brian Russell (Ph.D.) has worked with hundreds of pastors over the last twenty years as a professor of biblical studies and as a coach. He brings a unique combination of passion for deep spiritual formation and personal growth and his expertise in biblical studies to create a powerful coaching experience that will overdeliver immediate results in your life and ministry.

We'll meet twice monthly as a group on Zoom for about an hour for a deep dive into helping you grow deeper spiritually, focus on what matters most to you, and gain new tools and insights for kingdom building leadership.
