Coaching Study Needs Your Help!

Seattle Presbytery

Coaching Research Needs Your Help!

Hello, my name is Jeff Gephart.  I'm an ordained teaching elder of 16 years and currently at large in Seattle Presbytery and finishing a doctorate at Seattle University.  I have a desire to help pastoral leaders sustain themselves in ministry over the long haul.

To that end I'm conducting a study of the coaching of clergy as part of my dissertation.  If you wish, you can read a more thorough introduction here and also read the consent form .

Would you consider participating?  Qualified participants must be currently serving a congregation and have used a coach at some point in the last few years.  If you are willing to share your perspective on your coaching experience email me today at with your name and your email and I will send you the link to the online survey.  Your name and email will only be used for the purposes of this study and kept confidential.  Thanks!


Rev. Jeff Gephart, M.Div.
