Dr. Jan Paron, missional coach: (speaking at Indiana Wesleyan University graduation 2014):  “I use everything I learned from my missional coaching experiences. The internship provided me with the initial foundation for church turnaround. Now, I add my own expertise and strategies for multiethnic church growth.”  Dr. Jan Paron, Academic Dean/Professor at All Nations Leadership Institute, and Alsip, IL and minister at the multi-ethnic Lighthouse Church of All Nations


Matt McCarrick, missional coach:Family “One of my favorite aspects of the program was how much Dr. Whitesel allowed us to be engaged in the process. This wasn’t a ‘sit in the back and watch me’ kind of internship. We were right next to Dr. Whitesel at every step of the journey.

  • He shared his research findings, his thoughts, and notes with our team.
  • We were able to sit in on the panel discussions with Dr. Whitesel and give our own insights into the issues our client was facing.
  • We prepared an analysis of strengths and weaknesses and had the opportunity to present our findings during a coaching session.
  • We had full access to the process Dr. Whitesel uses to counsel and coach these churches.
  • Finally, I loved the team aspect… we grew close.

I have had an amazing year. I am sad it is coming to a close. I looked forward to each one of my consultations, knowing I would get to spend more time with these friends and colleagues. I encourage you to be a missional coach this year. I know the money is a sacrifice. It was for me! But God has already started to use this opportunity in my life. So, I would challenge you to take a leap of faith and dive in! You will not regret this decision. You may be amazed by the doors it opens up in the future!”
