Creative Coaching


How Are You Doing Personally, Spiritually and Professionally?

If your life is a grove, is it beautiful? Fruitful & productive? Fully alive?

Can you say with confidence that your life is healthy and well-cultivated? Or is it neglected by the weeds of busyness, burnout or lack of focus? Is it time to be more intentional in cultivating your life?

Achieve Greater Creativity, Focus & Satisfaction in Your Life

Creation and cultivation. All things growing and alive.

Color. Wonder. Awe.

You get the garden metaphor. But how do we really cultivate our gardens for greater growth and productivity? It takes intentional time and energy to keep our gardens cultivated…let alone help other people cultivate their own gardens.

What artist, creative person or ministry team leader hasn’t had to deal with creative challenges, burnout, conflict, lack of focus, and discouragement? What person doesn’t need some form of assistance to pursue their God-given dream, vision, or creative calling?

If you want to to cultivate the life you’ve always dreamed of, creative coaching and mentoring may just be the thing you need in this season of your life.

Introducing Creative Coaching with Joey O’Connor

For over twenty-five years, I have walked alongside many people within church and non-profit ministry settings, coaching and mentoring them in all seasons of life. In founding The Grove Center for the Arts & Media ten years ago, I’ve had the privilege of helping artists, creatives, worship leaders and ministry team leaders cultivate their personal, spiritual and professional lives. (Oh, I’m also a bit of a farmer. I cultivate and manage a 12 acre organic lemon and avocado grove.)

My goal is to help people lead more fulfilling, focused and beautiful lives. Whether you’re an individual artist, a worship leader, a ministry leader or just someone interested in living a more satisfying life, I will coach you based upon your specific needs. Whatever creative dream you’re pursuing, ministry challenge or personal season of life you’re in, I can help you cultivate the life you really want to live.

I offer several areas of expertise…

• The Writing Process-Understanding Fiction, Non-Fiction & Story Development
• Should I Submit My Manuscript to a Traditional Publisher or Self-Publish?
• Social Media & Building Your Author Platform
• Spiritual Formation-Cultivating a Deeper Spiritual Life
• Pursuing Your Creative Calling & Vocation (Knowing Your Own Voice)
• Creative Focus-From Ideation to Creation to Completion
• Arts Ministry Non-Profit Development (The nuts & bolts of starting your own arts non-profit.)
• Creative Retreat Planning

I’m so convinced that you will personally benefit from a one-on-one coaching relationship, that I’m willing to offer you a FREE 30 minute introductory consultation. It’s your chance to meet me and make sure there is good chemistry for moving ahead. We’ll talk about what’s on your mind and explore how coaching can best help you.

You have the option for weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly coaching sessions via the phone, Skype and email followup. You may prefer one to two sessions for a specific project or challenge you’re working on. Or, a longer coaching relationship based upon future goals and mentoring. Sessions are fifty minutes each. All sessions are confidential.

Even Better, All Sessions Are Tax-Deductible

I’ve got even better news…when you sign up for creative coaching and mentoring, every single one of your sessions is tax-deductible. All creative coaching and mentoring is done through my work with The Grove Center for the Arts & Media. Simple make your donation to The Grove Center for the Arts & Media and bingo, you get a nice little write-off. (The Grove Center for the Arts & Media is a 501c3 non-profit organization.) Your tax-deductible donation is $75.00 per fifty-minute session. All credit cards accepted.

So What Are You Waiting For?

You and I are not made to garden alone or go it alone. Coaching and mentoring just may be the next step you need to take in cultivating your life into the beautiful garden God designed it to be.
