Kindred Coaching

Applications for Spring 2022 will open up soon. In the meantime, you can contact us directly for more information.


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...


We all came to the business and nonprofit world by surprise as well, and we’re here to help you navigate the unknowns while being your BIGGEST cheerleaders.

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


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

Mission Fit

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’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

Mission Modeling

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

Sustained Impact

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. 

This is for you if...

+ You have a passion and vision to start a social enterprise or nonprofit organization 

+ You lack the business knowledge and background to get the ball moving

+ You need support and guidance to help you build your organization in an effective and sustainable way

+ You're ready to take your idea to the next level in just 4 months

We can't wait for you to join us!

On the fence?

Lauren is like a magnet and you’re just drawn to her; wanting to be in her inspiring, life-giving presence and learning from her vast knowledge and experience. Working with her and wrestling with questions like sustainable development, ethics and keeping a kingdom perspective is such a privilege!
