Why Do You Need GOSPEL Coaching?
"Every study we have done shows that church leaders will do a better job leading their church to health if they have a coach who comes alongside to encourage them, ask questions, offer resources and hold them accountable."

Where's the Gospel Thriving?
Don Sampson is a church planting pastor in Northern Virginia where he, his wife Nancy, and their family planted Crossroads PCA 14 years ago. Many of the members of Crossroads are military families serving at the Pentagon, Marine Corps Base Quantico, or Fort Belvoir Army Base. Don is a retired Marine helicopter pilot with a passion to impact the world by reaching and making disciples among the many military and government workers assigned to the area who pass through the crossroads of Northern Virginia. Crossroads hired a CMM Gospel Coach to help Don navigate the changes a young church experiences as leadership grows and matures.
“The saved sinner is prostrate in adoration, lost in wonder and praise. He knows repentance is not what we do in order to earn forgiveness; it is what we do because we have been forgiven. It serves as an expression of gratitude rather than an effort to earn forgiveness. Thus the sequence of forgiveness and then repentance, rather than repentance and then forgiveness is crucial for understanding the gospel of grace”
