Coach Profiles

NM Conference Coach Team 

Rev. Brad Bennett – Fly-fisherman, sports car enthusiast, musician, pastor – The positive impact of coaching comes to life for me as I view groups and individuals the way God created us to be – whole and complete. Coaching often brings out the best in another person through the gift of deep listening. Asking powerful questions can be a catalyst for people to envision their own change with confidence.  Location:Santa Fe  Contact: 432-770-2981 or  pbgoesicloud@icloud.com

Donna Berry – A believer in profound partnership, dedicated to companioning and supporting my clients who are people poised to become unstoppable in life. My call to do things for the church has led me to certification in Spiritual Formation in the United Methodist church and now to certification in coaching. Coaching is an adventure in listening, while creating safe space in which to explore what the client desires to be or do or have.
