Testimonials and Comments:


“I appreciate Grace in Action’s willingness to work with leaders in the Minnesota District to further support the pastors in our district. Our pastors are so important to the Lord’s work!”


President Charles Degner, MN District



"GIA is passionate about leadership training and support - their coaching model is both impactful and practicable. I really appreciate their focus on supporting initiatives that powerfully share Jesus...or supporting the men and women who are God's hands and feet who take Christ to a hurting world. I am honored to partner with GIA."


Dan Johnson, President of Wisconsin Lutheran College




In over 40 years of ministry, many of them serving the WELS in administrative capacities, I have had the opportunity to attend multiple leadership training seminars, conferences, and classes. Usually, something positive and useful was gleaned from each of them. The time spent with the leaders of MLI exceeded all of the others. Each of the presenters was professional, well prepared, and extremely practical in the information he provided. In simplest terms and in a very organized fashion they helped the men and women associated with MLP analyze ourselves as individuals and as an organization; they helped us see our weaknesses and our strengths; they provided methods and means to move forward; they showed us how to lay out plans and they promised to stand by us as we further develop and implement those plans.

"Asking which part of the MLI team training event was least helpful/useful is like asking which diamond is least valuable."

"You delivered as promised!"

"It was all helpful and useful!"
