Head Shot - 2014Rebekah Simon-Peter Coaching and Consulting Inc.

Rebekah Simon-Peter – developer of the award-winning leadership program, Creating a Culture of Renewal – equips participants with increased emotional intelligence and practical leadership skills that transform church leaders and the congregations they serve.

Creating a Culture of Renewal interrupts church decline, and empowers church leaders to do the impossible with people who may not even get along. All so that your church can dream and lead like Jesus again!

Rebekah helps church leaders like you:

  • Craft a bold vision that exponentially expands what you and your congregation(s) thought possible.
  • Dramatically increase the number of people actively engaged in ministry.
  • Transform a risk-averse culture into a congregation willing to dream like Jesus, enthusiastically tackling new initiatives and launching new ministries.
