“Our church has been impacted, and energized by implementing Destiny Finder and Pastor’s Coach programs to help our people discover their life purpose in a wonderfully relational context.
We are seeing lives transformed in our leadership and congregation. I give Destiny Finder and Pastors Coach my highest recommendation…
I was ready to hang up my spurs and retire… it’s just given me such a spark of life…”— Pastor Paul Berteig, Genesis Community Church, Prince George, Canada

If you would like to reach as many people as your church could possibly handle; and disciple them so they love God and are unleashed into their calling…
Then this will be one of the most exciting messages you’ll ever read.
Let’s face it… If you’re called by the Lord to pastor a church, then of course you want those things…
But your inner skeptic is probably screaming, “Yeah, right…”
What pastor who’s been around wouldn’t question such bold claims?
But we’ve got the goods, and story after story of powerful transformation of churches just like yours…
*ok… tell me more*
We know people struggle with implementation.
You can have the knowledge, and the tools, but actually building something is the challenge.
Building a church is the same.
Our Mastermind program is all about implementing to get results
(using Biblical models and proven best practices, with group and personal coaching, comprehensive assessments, peer mentoring, and more).
We give you the knowledge…we give you the tools… AND we work with you to build.
For starters, we’ve developed a unique discipleship and leadership development tool which is unlike ANYTHING you’ve ever seen or heard about before…
(this is just one of the things that makes all this possible)
and it’s been used by…
And we’ve combined that tool with powerful and practical teaching, assessments and coaching, to create a ‘system’ we’ve used to…
Take a church in Michigan that was doing ok, and light a fire in it so their leaders can barely keep up with people who want to serve! (The pastor said, “I have to pinch myself… the momentum we’re seeing is crazy.”)
And so on… Listen, we could easily fill up this entire page with hundreds of success stories like these.
Because we’ve used this ‘system’ in every type of church you can think of.
And we’ve worked with church plants, small churches, and large churches including one with over 16,000 members, on every continent.
In other words, our “system” (old-school discipleship and biblical leadership models with a 21st century twist) is the most powerful church growth accelerator we’ve ever seen for…
“Grace Family Church: % of Increase since Jan 2017(All numbers reflect Year To Date, Month over Month)
Our [out of the park home-run] goal is a 20% increase YTD – MOM. We are killing our goals and I believe in large part it’s due to PastorsCoach.com.”
— Nathan Hurst, Pastor, Grace Family Church, Davenport, Iowa
I know we’re making some bold claims. I really hate “hype” but I can tell you, this is for real.
We’re making an offer which we think is too good to turn down – results guaranteed.
(And no, you don’t need a big building, or a cafe, or a celebrity worship leader, or even outstanding preaching. (Although I’m sure most of you can bring it’ on Sunday morning. But that’s not the key…)
Here are the results we guarantee…
In a year, you’ll:
or we’ll work with you until you do.
Jesus didn’t make disciples in a classroom. He focused on a small group of leaders who changed the world.
We can help you do the same.
The goal is to…
Through our unique comprehensive Mastermind program.
We’re going to give you the training and tools you’ll need: Tons of powerful and practical courses, powerful assessments…
and our secret weapon I alluded to before – the Destiny Finder tool for discipleship and leadership development.
And you’ll get live help through weekly group coaching, multiple personal coaching sessions, peer mentoring, and more.
This program is unique, and totally focused on getting you results so you can fulfill the call of God on your life and on your church.
It’s old school discipleship with a powerful 21st century twist!
Most churches are focused on Sunday services and maintaining a building… but they’re not reaching the lost.
And very few are doing actual one-on-one discipleship.
We’ve had 50 years of amazing conferences and awesome concerts (and I love both), but the facts are that most churches are losing ground. That’s not enough.
Barna surveyed a bunch of pastors, and most said that they felt most alive for the Kingdom when preaching. But their biggest complaints were that their people were not very spiritual, and they didn’t have enough volunteers.
There’s a big disconnect there…
The thing pastors are focusing on (preaching)… is not accomplishing what they need (spiritual maturity and people serving).
Preaching isn’t bad. It’s good. But it’s only part of the equation.
Discipleship is much more than preaching. We need to develop people so that they can fulfill their God-given calling.
We’re willing and able to guarantee results because of our unique approach and “system” with solid biblical models and proven best practices.
And we’ve seen it work over and over again.
We’re confident that you will receive the help you need to get breakthrough.
And frankly, we’re kind of obsessed with seeing the body of Christ do well.
We’ve always loved the local church. The church is God’s plan A and there is no plan B.
We’re all in to help churches be their best.
So don’t waste any more time going in circles, preaching and teaching your heart out but not seeing the fruit you long for.
You can keep doing the same thing… and getting the same results. You can keep on getting frustrated and stagnate or decline…
or you can join in with us, and get breakthrough!
Don’t try to be super-pastor…
In fact, we advise that you don’t try to care for everyone. What?
That’s not your job.
Your job is to equip people for ministry.
How does that work? We’ll show you in the Mastermind.
You can keep doing the same thing… and getting the same results. You can keep on getting frustrated and not accelerate, stagnate or even decline…
or you can join in with us and get breakthrough!
other coaches or “experts”?
We’ve done it, we’ve created a proven set of training resources and tools, and we actually help you do it.
Michael Brodeur’s story
Michael is the Founder of Pastor’s Coach and Co-Founder of Destiny Finder.
Michael was raised in San Francisco by counterculture parents and got radically saved in the 70s. Early on he was preaching on the streets in San Francisco, and was part of a Christian house ministry ministering to street people and drug addicts.
In 1983 he met John Wimber and that changed everything. He was mentored by John, and he and his wife Diane planted a Vineyard church in San Francisco in 84. It grew to be one of the largest churches the City had seen in a generation. He became a regional overseer, eventually overseeing 30 Vineyard churches.
He went on to coach pastors, and teach church planting and church leadership at ministry schools. In 2011 he and Glen Reed launched the first destinyfinder.com website, and it now has over 100,000 users. In 2014 he founded PastorsCoach.com, providing training and resources. He was awarded a honorary Doctorate of Divinity
Now, in addition to coaching pastors around the world, he serves with Catch the Fire and Jesus Culture, training pastors and influencing movements. His passion is to see the body of Christ fully mobilized for ministry, that the Lamb that was slain might receive the reward of his suffering, a mature bride.
