THE BENCH - A Supportive Community for
Men in Christian Coaching
Might you benefit both personally and professionally by participating in a men’s-only community of Christian coaches?
The Bench is a monthly online meet-up in which we can find support (and frank feedback when desired) while discussing coaching-related issues and sharing best-practices success stories.
Join Dave Peterson and Thomas Kenyon in bringing to light the topics that are common to men who have chosen a career as a Christian coach; from the challenges of being a solopreneur to the excitement of being used by God to help our clients experience the victorious life that Jesus purchased for each of us. You’ll find all this and more at The Bench!
This month we are adding to our usual discussion the opportunity to share a song which has spoken to your heart recently. Dennis Hooper will be leading us in this activity as we get to know one another in a new way.
Your Community Facilitators
David H Peterson has been a pastor and church planter for most of his adult life. He entered full-time into coaching in late 2016 helping "Christian influencers live out their purpose so they can have a positive impact on the world for God's glory".
He holds an MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, the CPLC from Professional Christian Coaching Institute and the AGAC with the Assemblies of God.
He loves to travel and has taught in the Baltics, Eastern Europe, Africa, and India.
Dave and the love of his life, Julie, have been married 43 years, live in the Hudson Valley of NY, and have four married adult children and five grandchildren.
Thomas Kenyon is a late-in-life Christ-follower, who almost immediately after a dramatic conversion experience at age 44 began ministering to men. After successful decade-plus runs in three varied business fields, he attended the Professional Christian Coaching Institute in order to become proficient in serving men as a life coach.
By the grace of God, Thomas and his bride, Lorene, recently celebrated their 34th anniversary. They enjoy having their two married daughters living within 20 minutes of their home in Sarasota, FL so that their 4 grandkids can visit frequently!
