Training, Coaching & Consulting


I will work with you to customize the content of the training so that it fits the needs of your church. I’ve delivered keynote addresses and led training for churches and other organizations in Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, Nevada, Arizona, Louisiana, Iowa, California, Oklahoma, Illinois, Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio, Idaho, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, South Dakota, and New Mexico. 

The cost for on-site training includes:

  • travel expenses
  • meals
  • hotel
  • honorarium

If you want to partner with another church or two, costs can be shared among the churches, resulting in more people experiencing a live event.


Virtual training has risen in popularity recently. It is a cost-effective way to bring customized training to your group leaders, and they will love the convenience of meeting online from the comfort of their own homes! I will design a single training event, or I can craft a series of trainings throughout the year. I will record the training session and provide it to you so that you can build your church’s on-demand training library.


Do you need help growing to the next level? We can meet via Zoom at a pace that will meet your goals and objectives. A typical coaching relationship lasts for a set number of sessions during which we work together to help you grow in areas that are important to you and your ministry.

I will seek to understand your context and needs, then create a plan for the coaching experience. We’ll determine the right schedule for both of us, and I’ll assign a few questions and/or reading assignments prior to our online meetings.  The content varies from person-to-person.


A consulting relationship is a way to educate and encourage the pastor and/or staff. A customized plan can be developed for you and your church.  Some things that can be a part of a customized consulting relationship include:

  • Foundations in Sunday School/groups Ministry. Sometimes a “back to the basics” training is what a pastor or staff needs. Foundational principles of groups ministry help staff leaders to make wise decisions about the church’s Bible teaching ministries.
  • Bible Study Organization Review. I’ll review your organization, enrollment, and attendance, looking for gaps that represent new or underserved people your church can reach.
  • Website Review.  I will help you more clearly communicate discipleship options and opportunities to your guests.
  • Demographic Survey. A demographic report about your church’s ministry sphere can help you identify ministry opportunities in your community by analyzing the latest data about the people in your area.
  • Space Analysis. A space analysis helps church leaders see bottlenecks and opportunities for growth. I will make recommendations to maximize your space in order to grow your disciplemaking ministry.
  • Budget Review. I’ll review your budget to maximize your impact through Sunday school, discipleship, and small group ministries.

  1. Bible studies for life: fall 2018.thanks for your excellent material.
    However,in the November 4 th lesson in the students book, there is an error. On page 125, next to last paragraph, last sentence, it says ….. so he pleaded with God for healing. Check the scripture for the accuracy of this.

    • Ann, thanks for reaching out. By “students” do you mean “adult students”? If yes, which version are you using? Young adults? Adults? KJV adults? Senior adults?

  2. Mr. Braddy. I have been asked to be the SS director for our church, Central Baptist North Little Rock, AR. I have read your new book, “Breathing Life Into SS” twice now and loved it and have gleaned a lot from it. I see you have a training scheduled at a church in Collierville on February 23. Is it possible for me attend this? What is the cost and a schedule?

    • Hello Norman, that event was canceled by the church in Collierville, so I won’t be in the Memphis area on that date. If I was going to be, you would most certainly be welcome to attend the training. I’m going to update that on my training dates page right now…sorry that I forgot to remove it when they canceled a few weeks ago. And thanks for picking up a copy of the book!

      By the way, my team at LifeWay hosts a 3-day training event for SS Directors and others who are in charge of their church’s Sunday School. It begins on a Monday at 1PM and ends on Wednesday at 11:30AM. The event is FREE for you to attend – all you have to do is get to Nashville and we pick up meals, hotel, etc. It’s an invitation only event, and we only take 25 people max at each one. If you are interested, reply back and I’ll send you some dates. Consider this your invitation!

  3. Hello Pastor, I have one more question to add to your blog. What about the parking lot/s you know that is a place of congregation of the practitioners after services which needs to be address? Thanks

  4. I’m trying to find your comments that I read the other day about using ZOOM to teach.
    I want to share your comments but I’m unable to find them again.
