what will coaching do for you?
Here's what people are saying about Your Lector Coach:
Steve breaks down the lectoring process into very simple blocks. At its core, lectoring is not performing, but it IS storytelling.
Steve not only shows you precisely how to do this, he makes it fun along the way.
“Lector coaching has given me tools to communicate better, proclaim Scripture with confidence, engage with parishioners, interpret and deliver the Word for others to gain meaning, and most of all, it has helped me to find my voice.”
“Steve brings a combination of faith, spirituality, professionalism and humor to coaching sessions. He always emphasizes the positive, and through his leadership we have worked together to improve everyone’s proclamation of the Word.”
“I understand now that proclaiming is not merely reading words on the page, but understanding those words. I have gained so much from coaching sessions; I believe the opportunity to meet with my fellow lectors and give and receive feedback has not only benefited each one of us, but the congregation as well.”
Cambria Tortorelli, Parish Life Director, Holy Family Church
“Steve helped create a structure which ensures ongoing coaching and development of the volunteers in this critical ministry. He uses his professional presentation skills to hone the proclamation abilities of our lectors. Steve is patient, encouraging, motivational, and utterly dependable. Holy Family has been very blessed!”
“I have developed vastly increased confidence and learned helpful techniques in the art of public speaking, due to lector training.”
“The primary benefit for me has been learning how to proclaim God’s Word in a truly meaningful way. In learning how to do this, I have, as a side benefit, read and learned a lot more about Scripture.”
