We wan to help you thrive as a leader!

One of the most significant challenges facing Christian leaders today is burnout. According to Ed Stetzer, “Mental health issues in general and burnout in particular are real issues. This has only been magnified by the added stress of a global pandemic.” More than ever, leaders need support and encouragement to help them learn to navigate the world we are in. 

That’s why we founded Healthy Rhythms Institute, to help leaders thrive through a unique approach to coaching and coach training that promotes spiritual formation, leadership resilience, and missional creativity.

Whether you are a person who needs to be coached or you want to become a certified HRI Coach, we can help.
