    Mission of Unbridled Skies

    Our mission at Unbridled Skies is to provide leadership development and theological education programs to help pastors worldwide develop effective leaders in the local church. In addition, we assist humanitarian efforts where those efforts will enable our leadership development and theological programs to continue and prosper.

    We don’t have “cookie-cutter” programs - we specifically design programs to target the audience in front of us! We interview leaders with “feet-on-the-ground” to design a program that will address targeted leadership and theological challenges. Our encouraging interactive format will be unique for every retreat, seminar and coaching session.

  • Our Services

    We use Seminars, Retreats, and personal Coaching to provide Leadership Development and Theological Education programs and training. Designed for those in or being prepared for church leadership roles, including pastors, elders and deacons.

    Our Retreats allow leadership teams to step away from day-to-day operations to surface issues with focused discussion, build relationship and develop skills.

    All Unbridled Skies Retreats begin with an overview of the 10 leadership principles from our "Well-Balanced Leader" curriculum.

    Then, our team specifically targets the principles highlighted during pre-Retreat interviews.

    Therefore, no Retreat is the same – all are unique!

    Duration: Typically one to multi-day event(s) based on the needs of your leadership team goals.

    Our Seminars provide a focused agenda. Seminars offer a ½ day or full day program to address 1-3 principles in smaller, more interactive sessions.

    After an overview of the 10 principles from our “A Well-Balanced Leader” curriculum, Seminar attendees choose Breakout Sessions covering specific principles. Each attendee could attend 2-3 Breakout Sessions. Seminars can also be used for strategy development:

    • Define the challenge and brainstorm solutions
    • Research a “short-list” of possible solutions
    • Identify people and resources for Execution Team
    • Discuss and determine next steps

    Duration: Typically a single event or scheduled as a series of events.

    Typically our coaching services occur after an Unbridled Skies Retreat or Seminar, when a pastoral leader requests follow-up coaching for themselves or a member(s) of their Leadership Team.

    Some of the attributes of Coaching:

    • Confidential or limited report back to supervisor
    • Target specific needs of the one being coached
    • Small-group - a pastoral, elder, deacon team
    • In-person or online video (Zoom, Google, Whatsapp, Signal, etc video options)

    Duration: Best to have a defined Beginning, a specified Duration and a Defined TAKEAWAY Goal.
