One to one coaching for results
We help you unlock hidden capacity to grow your ministry, build a culture of generosity to fully fund God’s vision for your ministry, and get momentum and your board, staff, and volunteers moving forward together.
Simplify your life
A proven expert will coach you each week while helping you cut through the complexity that can slow you down. We also provide tons of examples, templates, and action items.
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.
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.

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.Zach Clark
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 in seeing God do impossible things for faith-based organizations, Zach Clark has a big vision to see Christian organizations 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 helping leaders grow and build a culture of generosity. Beginning at twenty years of age, Zach’s expertise and skills were honed as a development and leadership 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, one of our nation’s largest independent Christian schools, serving 990 students in grades 7-12, located in St. Louis. 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 plan implementation, and a $70 million campus 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 very 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 $60,000,000 in additional philanthropic giving from 2013-2016, 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.Zach Clark
