If you're in a position of influence, you know
Leadership is challenging and hard.
Leading in the spiritual realm is often lonely, isolating, and full of tough questions. Where do you turn when you feel unfulfilled in your work, frustrated in your home life, or unclear about your next step?
Put simply, who mentors the mentors?
That's our cue.
The Conversation Group helps you navigate these challenges through mentoring, collaborative design, and friendship, so you can be more effective in your ministry or profession. We hold the conversation, reflect on your reality, and help you design strategic pathways forward.
Each session is personalized to you and your needs, not a cookie-cutter program. In a Conversation Group session, you can expect us to:
Listen for understanding
Ask questions for clarity
Provide tools and actions for change
We don't exist to give you all the answers, but rather to ask insightful questions and provide a listening ear as a catalyst for personal and organizational growth.
Our approach is inspired by two biblical models: Jesus and Barnabas. Jesus took just twelve into His inner circle to mentor them for a life of service and engaging them in deep conversation. Barnabas, known as the "son of encouragement," delighted in mentoring Paul the Apostle and helping early Christians remain true to the Lord in both word and deed.
In their own ministry experiences, founders Scott and Kim Lambert observed that oftentimes leaders don’t feel they have the resources to contact a coach or consultant, so they developed a unique model to address this need: Generous and passionate donors have invested financially so that your first three sessions are free of charge, and subsequent sessions are offered at an affordable, agreed upon price. We are honored to serve you with a group of supporters who are fully behind the vision of mentored leaders, transformed lives.

Scott has been a valuable resource for my ministry for years and his continued guidance has helped me stay healthy in ministry. Scott really cared about what was going on in my life and was invested in helping find solutions. I would recommend working with Scott to anyone who is feeling burned out or stuck in a hopeless situation. He is a great source of Godly encouragement and wisdom that comes from decades in ministry. His passion is clearly to help the kingdom grow and he uses his experience and discernment to build up those who are in the tough seasons that ministry brings. Scott really cared about what was going on and was invested in helping find solutions.
