The FiveTwo coaching process has provided invaluable accountability for our team to get together and tackle the tough issues of not only ministry start up, but the ongoing pivots that inevitably occur. We're stronger as a team due to the thoughtful questions and challenges our coach and the team at FiveTwo have presented us with.

As a team working to develop a new mission, Tina helped us truly work as a team and utilize each of our unique gifts and talents in the appropriate positions. Her probing questions enabled us to clearly identify the necessary next steps and avoid possible pitfalls. She really helped us to think outside of the box, and maintain focus on the sacramental aspect of our ministry. Having a regular coach call forced us to not let things slide but gave us encouragement to identify goals and helped us to set up our own responsibilities toward the process. She helped us focus on the process, was encouraging and never seemed to be hard on us. Our coaching experience with Tina made ALL the difference in the world to our mission and functioning as a team.

Imagine how you want to live out your life as a disciple of Jesus, who loves like he loves and lives like he lives in the place where He has sent you. Now, imagine that you have someone to come alongside of you to encourage you for the mission on which you’ve been sent. For me, Tina has been instrumental in framing the work of Jesus’ ministry here at Holy Cross and in our surrounding community. She asks questions that prompt reflection on the mission while also pointing to the future. My experience with Tina has been invaluable and I look forward to it continuing.
