SUPPORT OVERCOMING INTERRUPTED LIFE
The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.
—2 Corinthians 9: 6-8
How has a SOIL group added value to your ministry?
“It has added value to my ministry by just having a calm in the storm. I enjoyed getting to know new folks and hearing how they problem solved situations that were very familiar to what I was dealing with. I especially appreciated the meditation piece of the time together. The breakout rooms were good for deeper conversations.” Lajo Dunbar
“Being able to talk with other pastors, to trouble-shoot problems, to discuss concerns and to just be with others who are going down the same road and journey of pastoring small or fairly small churches has been helpful. Helpful in that we are all doing this together and our mission is the same.” Jodi Kosary
“Opportunity to connect and gain wisdom from the group. Opportunity to present issues. I really liked the issue presentation worksheet. I now use that often just to get my thoughts clear. I liked the one minute prayer. Still using it.” Roberta Cook

Who am I?
My family’s roots are in Agriculture.
The images of SOIL and SEEDS are important to my journey.
For 30 years as an Elder in the UMC I have had a mission to help people ‘Say Yes to Jesus’. A few years ago, I answered a call to intentionally journey with leaders, both Clergy and Laity in a new way.
With training and coaching from Coach Training for Leaders, I have retooled as an ACC ICF Certified coach.
