What Our Clients Are Saying

New worker

As a new missionary, coaching sessions have provided a consistent space to process all the commotion of this new physical, cultural, spiritual, mental and emotional territory, and more importantly what God is up to through it all.
J.M. in Nepal

Experienced worker

Coaching provided a safe place to process my challenges with someone who understands, encourages, and validates the hardships of being on the field. I was empowered to find solutions, keep a positive outlook and see my circumstances from various perspectives. I could have never gotten through this last year effectively without my coach!
K.L. in Mongolia

Worker in transition

Coaching has helped me clearly process difficult decisions. My coach asked the right questions to help me better understand myself and the ways that God was leading me. I also really appreciate how she always led me back to the Bible.
C.D. in Mexico

Wherever You Are

We have coached workers in over 70 different countries.

What Our Partners are Saying

Jim Erickson
Training & Equipping Director
North Point Ministries

I feel a greater sense of relief sending our missionaries to the field since our church started using the services of Advance Global Coaching. Without my asking, I’m receiving positive feedback from our missionaries. The confidential coaching has helped them with cultural processing, emotional waves, and spiritual insights. A big thanks to Advance Global Coaching!

International Director

As an organization we talk a lot about being resilient. Enduring and persevering in our work, not because of our own strength but because we are rooted in Christ. Without hesitation I can say that the resilience cultivated in our workers and our organization is a byproduct of the ministry of Advance Global Coaching. AGC has walked our people through countless transitions, cultural adjustments, interpersonal dynamics, and abrupt expulsions.

Steve Cofer
Director of Global Outreach

World Missions Ministries uses AGC because the benefits are many. Coaching helps our workers find appropriate answers within their own circumstances. It provides an avenue to share frustrating issues in a safe environment. Being able to express true thoughts confidentially relieves certain stressful baggage. AGC spoke into my own life and provided the tools for me to see the forest and not just the trees.
