A year ago Encuentros Latinx began a “culturally appropriate” pastoral coaching program. It has made a difference in the life and calling of eight people.
The Rev. Marilyn Pagán-Banks, senior pastor of San Lucas United Church of Christ, Chicago, is one of them.
“The Pastoral Coaching Program has blessed me tremendously — especially during this time of COVID and as God continues to expand my territory,” she said. “My coach asked the kinds of questions that allowed me to see beyond the imposter that so often shows up in my personal mirror. I was able to push beyond doubt and fear and claim some victory and joy-inducing changes in my life and ministry.”
