Newport Beach, CA – You hear the calling of God. You pursue the path of ministry. One day you find yourself in front of a congregation depending on you for spiritual leadership.
When we need someone to talk to we go to our spiritual leaders. When our spiritual leaders need someone to talk to, they talk to Kirk Kirlin.
Kirlin is the founder of Kirlin Coaching, where he serves as a coach for pastors in dozens of denominations. Since 1987, Kirlin has walked with pastors as a catalytic change agent, coaching and mentoring pastors to be effective, influential leaders by focusing on their character.
“It’s my conviction that the most important sermon any minister preaches is the sermon they preach with their lives,” says Kirlin. “Without authenticity, people aren’t going to follow where you’re going. I work with pastors to build and strengthen their character so the person they portray on Sunday morning is the person they really are.
Kirlin says it does the faith a great disservice when its leaders fail to be transparent and vulnerable for their people.
“Ministers kept suffering moral collapses,” recalls Kirlin. “In some cases, it was an abuse of power, or an abuse of money or a sexual transgression, but every time one of those leaders collapses, the fallout is devastating. Hundreds of people scatter from the church and the faith.”
Today, Kirlin helps pastors examine if their decisions are aligned with their convictions.
“I can do ministry by addition or ministry through multiplication,” says Kirlin. “I want to invest in the lives of people who invest in the lives of others.”
