The Praying Leader

Leading transformation in your church by developing a culture of prayer.

New groups start January 31st, 2023! 

The Praying Leader Coaching Experience

will give you a biblical pathway to spiritual leadership that empowers you and your people for greater gospel ministry.

There is only one kind of leader that God is looking for.

The world has deceived us into thinking we need to be more skilled, more intelligent, or more professional to be successful leaders. While these are all noble desires, worldly methods can only produce worldly results. If we want to experience real empowerment and lasting fruitfulness throughout our ministry, we must get back to the Biblical path of leadership.

It’s the praying leader who experiences the transformation that only God can bring.

  • Do members of your church seem content with the status quo?
  • Do you want to see lasting transformation in the lives of your congregation?
  • Are you feeling personally distracted with lesser priorities?
  • Are you longing to grow a greater spiritual appetite and maturity in your people?
  • Are there obstacles to growth that you don’t know how to overcome?

The Praying Leader Coaching Experience will give you a biblical pathway to spiritual leadership that empowers your people for greater gospel ministry.

Daniel Henderson

As a lead pastor for nearly three decades, Daniel Henderson saw it all. His pastoral assignments brought him face-to-face with the real challenges of local church ministry: traditionalism, stagnation, divisions, wounds from the previous leadership’s failures. But with every new “problem”, God showed Daniel that the answer is always the same. It wasn’t to adapt some other minster’s strategy, but to seek God for the specific need in the moment.

Daniel went on to help several of his own congregations experience transformation and renewal through an extraordinary commitment to prayer. Through this, he has learned and implemented the Biblical processes that any church can use to experience profound spiritual impact in the face of crisis and stagnation.

As a “pastor to pastors,“ he leads renewal experiences in local churches, speaks in a variety of leadership conferences, and actively coaches pastors from around the world. He is passionate about helping you realize positive and authentic change in the life of your church. Daniel is the author of over a dozen books, including Transforming Prayer: How Everything Changes When You Seek God’s Face and Old Paths, New Power: Awakening Your Church Through Prayer and the Ministry of The Word.

Daniel also serves on the Board of Directors for the National Association of Evangelicals, and is the Founding Leader of The 6:4 Fellowship, a coalition of pastors committed to prayer and the ministry of the Word (Acts 6:4).
