    We’ll teach you how to avoid the roadblocks, and you’ll gain new ground month after month and witness the new growth, support, and organizational health that seemed just out of reach.

  • Money-Back Guarantee

    Taking the next step toward God’s vision for your ministry can feel like a huge leap of faith, but it’s just your next step with a trusted advisor. With this in mind, we provide a unique money-back guarantee for the first year of service.

This isn’t the typical consulting approach. But you aren’t looking for typical results.

    We work with the leaders of faith-based organizations that usually describe themselves in one of two ways. The first is a leader who is making a big difference, but seems limited in the financial resources needed to grow. Usually the leader explains that he or she feels they’ve hit a wall on moving forward, or a lid on raising money.

    The second leader is someone who has a very clear sense of future direction for the organization, but they see a huge gap between where they are now and where they need to be. The leader usually feels the next steps are so big that he or she knows they need someone walking with them to take the next steps.

About Our Founder

Building on years of experience seeing God do impossible things, Zach Clark has a big vision to see Christian ministries raise one hundred billion cumulative dollars—fully funding them to fulfill their God-given visions in this generation. Living out this passion led to the launch of Development & Leadership Coaching, a non-traditional service approach that helps leaders grow and build a culture of generosity.

Beginning at twenty years of age, Zach’s expertise and skills were honed as a development consultant serving hundreds of Christian schools, churches and non-profit ministry organizations around the country. His experience in working with non-profit ministry boards and leaders enables him to have a broad and deep perspective on the strategies and up-to-date tactics required to be constantly improving and developing organizations.

From 2006-2013, Zach served as Director of Advancement at Westminster Christian Academy St. Louis, one of our nation’s largest independent Christian schools.  He built and supported a highly effective team, and was responsible for providing leadership to the overall advancement efforts of the school, including giving, communications, community and alumni relations, strategic implementation and a $70 million plan to support the vision and mission of Westminster.


Zach has a dynamic and energetic teaching style that makes him a much sought-after public speaker. He was among the first members of the John Maxwell Team, the world’s leading leadership development organization, and is a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Trainer, and Speaker. 

In 2013, Zach founded Development & Leadership Coaching LLC, a ministry-based company focused on serving leaders of faith-based non-profit organizations who need to grow significant philanthropic giving and organizational capacity.

Beginning with one client in January 2013, the company has now served over 100 organizations across North America, most with annual operating budgets of less than $1 million. 

Leaders served through one-to-one coaching services provided by the company have raised over $100 million dollars (and still counting) in additional giving from 2013-2019 while being coached, with an average success of more than $200,000 in additional generous giving in their first year of coaching.

    Your to-do list is long, the demands on your time overwhelming, and the pressures just keep coming. Every day you push forward, but deep down you wonder if you’ll get the needed results. Sometimes you can feel drowned by the reality of what it takes to make progress. You don’t need more ideas. You need to know how to go from where you are to where you need to be. I encourage you to learn more about our approach to development and leadership coaching.
