Real People, Real Stories

On the brink of giving up on my ministry, I joined PARAPASTOR led by Mike Foreman. Feeling like a failure, I voiced my struggles to him. Despite initial skepticism, I accepted Mike’s offer of one-on-one coaching. Not just offered solutions, but he truly listened to my grievances and guided me towards self-reflection. With Godly counsel and insightful questions, he realigned my perspective with God. Mike’s coaching has transformed me, aiding me to serve, honor, and love God and His church more effectively. I’m grateful to him for utilizing his gifts to uplift a struggling pastor like me.

Pastor Scottie

I’ve known Mike as a fellow pastor and friend for 30 years, and I can tell you he brings the experience that comes with that and so much more to the table. He has wisdom that comes from paying the dues and making mistakes. Because of that, he can empathize with the burden and demands of ministry. Yet, at the same time, he can lovingly help lead you forward. Any pastor would benefit from a coaching ministry he leads.

Pastor Brad

Mike Foreman is not only a passionate warrior for Christ, he is a compassionate and skilled shepherd. He is one of the best coaches I know and he is at his best when he is alongside people who need and want help. He has helped me personally many times to think, discover pathways, and move forward in accomplishing what God has called me to do. I highly recommend him to you as a coach.
