Can coaching teach an old dog new tricks? Meet Warren…

This week I’m sharing some stories with you about how my 12-month Senior Pastor Tele-Coaching Network has been making a big impact. You’ve already met Mark and Stan, and read about what God’s doing in their churches.

TODAY I want to introduce you to Warren Cook – a ministry veteran and a great example of how this 12-month coaching process can revitalize even the most “experienced” pastors!

See, some pastors join my Tele-Coaching Network because they’re young and realize they have a lot to learn. Others join because they’re in a new position and looking to start off strong.

But some of the best results I’ve seen are from pastors who have been in ministry for years and are looking for something to jump-start them and their church to grow!

That’s why I want you to meet Warren Cook. He’s the Senior Pastor of Friendship Church in San Antonio, Texas, and has served in ministry for over three decades – here’s what he shared recently about his coaching network experience:

Friendship Church - San AntonioNelson,

As a current tele-coaching member, I have to say – in spite of 35 years of ministry experience, college degrees and associations with major churches, I’ve learned more this year than all 35 years put together.

It’s well worth the money, and the coaching phone call is the ONE meeting a month my wife will NOT let me miss!!

Love you guys,


I’m excited about the new energy that Warren is experiencing!

And I have seen this over and over again in my 12-month Senior Pastor Tele-Coaching Network:

A long time pastor joins (sometimes reluctantly) and within months their personal experience and the new systems and principles I’m teaching come together to bring renewed excitement and a fresh passion for ministry.

So, whether you’re a brand new pastor or a “grizzled” veteran – I WANT TO BE YOUR COACH IN 2013!

This 12-month Senior Pastor Tele-Coaching Network is proven (more than any other modern coaching process) to bring about growth and health in you and your church.

NOW is the time for you to join and advantage of the EARLY BIRD SIGN-UP period –Apply this week and you’ll save $600.00 on the network rate and receive over $1,925.00 in Bonuses!

You’ve probably heard that THIS IS MY FINAL 12-MONTH SENIOR PASTOR TELE-COACHING NETWORK before I retire it – it begins in late February.

Now, I want to be clear…

– I’m not retiring this coaching network because it’s not working. No, God continues to bless this network. The average graduate of my coaching program sees a 20% increase in attendance and a 25% increase in giving – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

– I’m not retiring this coaching network because I no longer care about pastors, church growth or fill-in-the-blank (whatever rumors you may have heard). In fact, I’m more committed than ever to pastors and churches.

Let me ask you a serious question:

What else could you do over the next 12 months that would have a greater impact on your leadership, personal life and church than joining my coaching network?

I’m more committed to this final network than any that I’ve ever done. I plan to retire it with a bang!

So, will you prayerfully consider joining me for this final network? I’m doing three things to make it easy for you:

1) I’m opening it up to a few more pastors than normal (the early response has been incredible)

2) I’m returning to the original investment of the network when I started it – only $297 per month if you join NOW (the rate will go up after Jan 31).

3) I’ve simplified the application – you can complete it online in just a couple of minutes (no more having to dig thru five years of budget numbers – ha!)

For all the details of the network (what we cover, how it works, dates – which really don’t matter as most people listen to the replays, etc.) check out the link below.

I want to help you fulfill your calling – to reach more people, make more disciples and honor God more fully, no matter how long you’ve been in ministry.

Please pray and check out this link to read more and apply now:

Don’t forget, apply before Friday, January 18 (Tomorrow) and you’ll receive the following additional Early Bird bonuses:

  • FREE membership in my Renegade Pastors Network – starting immediately when you’re accepted (includes over $813.00 in immediate bonuses!).
  • Your choice of two of my best-selling workshop resources FREE: “Planning Worship Services For Life Transformation” or “The Breaking Growth Barriers Workshop.” The value of each is $499.95, but you get one absolutely free for signing up early!
  • FREE Webinar Passes for all CLI Webinars between now and the February start of the network (up to a $147.00 value).

I hope you’ve enjoyed meeting a few of my friends this week – they’re just a couple of the over 1,100 pastors I’ve had the privilege of coaching so far.

I’m looking forward to reviewing your application – let me know if you have any questions.

Your partner in ministry,
