Welcome to CORE Consulting!

CORE Consulting is a Venture 1:9 fee-based coaching program that helps Christian nonprofits grow in financial
sustainability, organizational leadership, strategic planning, board development, and more.

"Lord, I'm working hard but I need to increase my leadership effectiveness..."

That was exactly where I was when I was invited to join Core Consulting. I was working hard and doing a good job, but I needed more. I needed someone to journey with me, someone to coach and lead me, someone to provide accountability, and someone to help me connect with other leaders for encouragement and Kingdom direction. Core Consulting provided all that, and more!

It's interesting, the invitation also came with a cost! I realized that God was giving me an opportunity to invest in myself (sometimes we are last on the list, right?) and this investment solidified my "buy in" to take advantage of the opportunities.

After many years, the Core group has been one of the best programs that developed me as a leader.  If you've been invited, say YES!

An Overview

CORE Consulting is an invite-only program and you are being invited to join for two reasons:

(1) Venture 1:9 believes in you!

(2) Venture 1:9 believes you are ready!

Through CORE Consulting, we will spend more regularly-scheduled and focused time to help you and your ministry take steps toward your God-led and inspired future. You will grow in sustainability as, TOGETHER, we will get things done!
