Jeff Hoglen, D.Min.

My name is Jeff Hoglen, and I specialize in coaching exclusively for church planters and Senior Pastors. My services focus on two main areas: church planting startup and overcoming growth barriers at the 125, 250, 500, and 1000 attendance marks.

Weekly Coaching

Ongoing coaching has been an essential part of maintaining my focus and effectiveness as a pastor. I am both a coach and a lifelong learner, constantly engaging in coaching relationships.

Senior Pastors hire me to help them develop and implement comprehensive personal and congregational growth plans. This process involves weekly 45-minute conference calls over the course of 6 months. Sometimes, all it takes for a leader to catalyze growth in their church is the support of a trusted advisor, offering fresh ideas, encouragement, and a push to take calculated risks.

Our coaching sessions will focus on the five core areas that are always on the agenda of an outreach-focused Senior Pastor: Leadership, Preaching, Evangelism, Generosity, and Personal Growth.

I am now offering single sessions as well as 6-month coaching packages.


Single Sessions are $150 per hour. Purchase a Single Coaching Session 

6 Month Coaching Package, which consists of weekly sessions  (weekly coaching for 6 months as well as email and direct texting) Cost is $1800. Purchase 6 Month Coaching Package

On-Site Consulting

A fresh perspective can often reveal new opportunities and practical steps for improvement. I provide on-site consulting to offer an objective analysis of your ministry and actionable next steps for immediate enhancement.

Senior Pastors and church leaders hire me to visit their locations and provide a detailed assessment. This may involve intensive coaching with the pastor directly or working with the entire staff team or governing board. My goal is to help you see the potential in your ministry and equip you with the strategies needed to achieve it.
