OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Dr. J. Val Hastings 

“Every Pastor, Ministry Staff and Church Leader a Coach”

Dr. J. Val Hastings

Dr. J. Val Hastings

Dr. J. Val Hastings, MCC, is the Founder and President of Coaching4Today’sLeaders, Coaching4Clergy, Coaching4Groups, and Coaching4BusinessLeaders. Val hired his first coach while he was pastoring at a local United Methodist church. His progress was noticeable by all, and he began to wonder, “What if I adopted a coaching approach to leadership?” In that moment, a vision began to emerge—a global vision of Every Leader a Coach.  

Dr. Hastings is the author of numerous books and has developed four coach training programs which are accredited and approved to the highest level by the International Coach Federation. These trainings are offered globally and are offered in many languages, including English, Spanish, Portuguese and Korean.  Graduates of these programs have received all three coaching credentials:  ACC, PCC and MCC.

Val currently holds the designation of Master Certified Coach through the International Coach Federation, its highest coaching designation. He also holds the designation of Professional Mentor-Coach. In addition to teaching at his own programs, Val holds faculty status at Coach University and Faith Evangelical Seminary.  In 2006 Val was a presenter at the global gathering of the International Coach Federation and, in 2007, he served as the President of the Philadelphia ICF Chapter.
