Services

Rev. Meghan is available for Conferences, Workshops, Consulting, and Coaching.

Conferences: If you are looking for an engaging and knowledgeable speaker on topics relating to youth ministry, rural development, discipleship, or mentoring, Rev. Meghan welcomes your invitation! She has spoken at many youth retreats and spent 17 years as a youth pastor. She currently preaches weekly at Bucklin and Mt. Zion United Methodist churches. You can view these sermons on the Bucklin UMC You Tube Channel.

Workshops: In 2018 Rev. Meghan led a workshop entitled “Freed to Lead: From No to Grow” as part of the Missouri Annual Conference. In 2019, she developed a workshop for the Rural Ministry Now Conference entitled “Student Ministries Without Paid Staff”. These workshops can be brought to you or Rev. Meghan can develop one specific to your context.

Consulting: Individual churches seeking guidance around visioning, goals, and next steps toward a more faithful practice of making new generations of disciples, may benefit from Rev. Meghan’s experience and gifts of discernment. This would involve pre-visit conversations with the pastor and key leaders and participants, a visit to your church and tour of your community, followed by a workshop held at your church or ministry site.

*Coaching: This is generally an ongoing relationship with the pastor or ministry leader(s) through monthly 30-60 minute conversations either in person, over the phone, or via video calling (ie: Zoom, Google Hangouts, or WhatsApp). In the course of these calls, Rev. Meghan will ask focused questions and offer support that will help you grow your rural ministry.

Availability: Rev. Meghan is available on weekdays, evenings, and Saturdays. Sundays are extremely limited at this time.

Cost: As a United Methodist Deacon, Rev. Meghan is available to Conference and District events at no cost, though she does ask that travel expenses be covered.

For all other services, an hourly rate of $20 will apply. Mileage may be charged beyond 60 miles.

Rev. Meghan desires to keep her services as affordable as possible. If the cost is a hindrance, remember that Conference and District offices may have funding to help with the cost of coaching or consulting services for your pastor or congregation.

Acceptable Payment Methods: Cash, Check, and Credit Card (via PayPal-additional 3% charge). Please make checks payable to Growing Rural Ministries.

*Rev. Meghan is pursing licensing through Coaching4Clergy. She is committed to keeping her services affordable for rural ministries. On average, coaches charge $150-$300 per hour.
