You're passionate, driven, and determined to make this world a better place. And you've got an idea that you know will do just that.
That's when the imposter syndrome starts to set in.
You know that a business or a nonprofit is your next step forward in your ministry, but your skills don’t feel related to what you need to get this machine moving.
We've been there too. But here's what we believe...
You'll walk away with...
A clear vision of your organization's missional impact
A full branding and website audit, with the option to add on creative services
Accounting documents for managing financial flows
Storybranding guidelines for marketing needs
Free landing page to tell your story & receive tax-deductible donations to support your efforts
Long-term plans for sustaining your business or ministry
What's your next steps?
Here's how this works
In order to keep cohorts small and intimate, we only accept 5 organizations per semester. Applications for Spring 2022 are currently not yet open, but if you would like to know more, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We currently offer 2 cohorts (Fall and Spring). Each cohort is 4 months long and provides intensive one-on-one coaching along with regular group sessions.
We know you have what it takes to create long-term, sustainable, and ethical impact through your organization or business! We'll help you get there in just 4 months.
MODULE 1 | Abby Littlefield
Branding & marketing
As the Creative Director for Kindred Exchange, Abby is to blame for all the aesthetic beauty you see flowing through our website and online channels. She has worked with multiple startups to create branding packages and strategic marketing tools to make sure all the outward facing pieces of an organization are really showing out and drawing people in.
Abby will be working with you throughout the entire coaching semester, touching base with you each month to talk through the visual components of your ministry. Whether you need a complete build-out, a tweak here or there, or a rebrand, Abby will deliver a guaranteed beautiful website, branding kit, and focused marketing strategy to meet your specific needs.
MODULE 2 | Dr. Aaron Wheeler
Aaron spent 7 years living in East Asia where he lived and breathed the challenges of running an organization cross-culturally. With a PhD in Intercultural Studies, he’s ready to walk with you through your mission and vision...it’s his sweet spot as an Enneagram 1!
Aaron’s sessions will pack a 1,2-punch of mission modeling, exploring how your purpose aligns with the concepts of mission as well as recognizing what God is already doing in the place and among the people you serve.
MODULE 3 | Rob Touchstone, MDIV
Rob can fill out business canvases in his sleep. An unconventional (but natural) entrepreneur, Rob found his way to the business world after 16 years in pastoral care. He learned business through practice when he launched The Well Coffeehouse in Nashville, Tennessee (now with 5 locations).
Rob will walk you through the critical questions of your business or nonprofit design to make sure money will flow through your outreach channels. You’ll really love seeing ALL your plans on a single, one-page canvas!
MODULE 4 | Dr. Lauren Pinkston
The big question Lauren always likes to ask is, But will this last? She holds a PhD in International Family and Community Studies, but during her 5 years in SE Asia she learned that all the books in the world can’t teach what the people in front of you can.
As you consider your hopes and dreams, Lauren will ask you the hard questions to make sure you have a way to see those plans through for years to come without burning out in your passion.
MODULE 5 | Dr. Julio Rivas
Finances & Reporting
Julio’s personality makes the impossible, possible -- he makes spreadsheets fun! We aren’t quite sure what kind of people pursue a doctorate in finance, but we’re glad Julio is in our circle.
Besides some cat memes and endless jokes, you’ll get to explore your financial tracking structure of your organization and learn how to stay organized and purposeful as stewards of sacred dollars.
