WHO WILL COACH ME?
James Seiler has been pastored in California for over 20 years. He & his wife, Chris, served as youth & college pastors & he sat on the Youth Advisory Board for the Northern California/Nevada District. This couple has served as senior leaders for two church plants in Northern California, including Real Life Church of Galt. James assumed the role of Church Plant Director for Northern California/Nevada AG & assisted in the launch of over 20+ church plants. James & Chris understand the heaviness and loneliness that ministers experience & their hearts are to be friends to leaders who feel they have no one else with whom to share their struggles. They are well connected with leaders & resources around the country, & can help point you in the right direction! James & Chris have been married for over 20 years & have five children, the oldest who is soon to be wed!
Also on the team is Heather Johnston. Heather is a licensed AG minister & published author. She & her husband, Sam, have been married for seven years & have four kids. Heather loves sharing the unrelenting love of God & teaching Biblical truths. She desires to see every person live a life of freedom in Christ, as well as discover God's unique purposes for them.
