I created to help Pastors and Church Leaders lead their churches to new levels of effectiveness.

NOW OPEN (only 19 spots left)

Welcome, my name is Brian Howard

I’ve spent the last 15 years coaching and mentoring leaders like you. I have coached and worked with thousands of pastors – many of them nationally known and in large church contexts. But I have also coached hundreds of pastors planting churches, and pastoring smaller churches. I have worked with leaders across denominations and on several continents. I specialize in helping pastors like you lead more effectively. Over the past fifteen years, I have done a lot of one on one coaching and coached several hundred leaders in over two dozen coaching cohorts.

But with Pastor Guide, I have finally put together a coaching process for you that includes all the best of one on one coaching, the best of my coaching cohorts, and a whole system for teaching you to be a next level leader.

Who is Pastor Guide For?

If you relate to any of these church scenarios, Pastor Guide is for you.

Growing Rapidly

Pastor Guide is for pastors of churches that are growing rapidly and who are looking to create systems to make sure that you continue to reach people.

Just Starting

Pastor Guide is also for the church planter who is just starting, for the church planter who can preach but needs to learn to lead more effectively.

Established Church

Pastor Guide is also for the established church leader that is looking to lead at a higher level, and who desires to learn to lead more effectively

Stagnant Leader

And Pastor Guide is for the church that is stagnant and is looking to address key areas to move forward into greater gospel effectiveness.

"I was so glad to see Brian develop PastorGuide and I was even more glad to to sign up myself. I love what Brian is giving us here: live access to a world class coach on a bi-weekly basis, a growing original video library of best practices for ministry, and a community of like minded pastors. The energy and shared learning dimension in PastorGuide is vital, and something that you don't get in one-on-one coaching. The bottom line: no matter your qualifications, your level of education or your skill level, we all need regular encouragement in ministry. PastorGuide is a great place to start. Every time I leave the LIVE Q&A I come away with a little more joy, a little more purpose, and a little more efficacy in my ministry."

James Harvey

"As a recent church planter, I have become fully aware of the unexpected challenges that were presented days and months after opening. Brian Howard has helped prepare me for both expected and unexpected challenges. He has helped me set a course for success as we now have a clear cut vision, a plan and method to execute that vision, and a way to measure the success that we are experiencing. As pastors, we all know that it is only the Holy Spirit that changes hearts, but it is our job to be diligent to learn and to grow to become the best leaders possible to further the Kingdom of God. PastorGuide not only provides general answers to pastors corporately, but it gives me answers to questions specific to the church God has called me to plant in a specific community that He’s called me to reach. I would recommend PastorGuide to both seasoned pastors as well as church planters desiring to make the most of their call to reach the lost and build up the saints."

"PastorGuide has been a tremendous help to me. The format is flexible, adaptable and perfectly pitched. Brian’s wisdom, experience and infectious enthusiasm have all combined to help me think with greater clarity about key areas of life, work and church life. I wholeheartedly recommend it."

Gary Aston
Pastor of Redeemer Church

"The past eight weeks with Pastor Guide and Brian Howard have been amazing. Brian has brought new information and ideas to my world as well as revisited items I needed reminding of. There is no doubt that me, my team and congregation are all benefiting from my time with Brian. I highly recommend Pastor Guide any leader looking to take themselves up to a new level."
