Coaching and Consulting

We are Here to Help!

Dear friends and leaders,

We are grateful you have started a transformational journey to maturity and wholeness as you engage the Discipleship Dynamics Assessment™ (DDA) personally, and in your community or organization. We are here to help. The three leaders available to serve include the two co-designers of the DDA, Drs. Johan Mostert and Charlie Self, and pastor, theologian, and community renewal leader, Jamé Bolds. Together we are partners in helping leaders use the Assessment and the growing body of resources well.

After a complimentary initial conversation, we each offer the following services, with varied pricing depending on the capacity of the leader and organization:

  • Executive Briefing: a 60-90-minute interactive conversation with key leaders helping connect the DDA with the ethos of the community.
  • Implementation Intensive: a 30-60-day coaching/consultation that will help you design, test and implement outcome-based discipleship in your organization
  • Leadership coaching and consultation: As schedules allow, this can include personal sessions with senior leaders and strategic conversations as needed.

If you are ready for positive change, please contact us for availability and pricing at info@discipleshipdynamics.com.

Rev. Jamé Bolds, Ph.D. (Cand.)

“I help you create money for ministry. With a background in theology and economics, I help you build a strong financial base for you church. I’m not talking about increasing tithes and offerings, lots of others do that. I’m talking about building a six-figure rainy day fund for your church, a planned giving department, and multiple sources of income. Restructuring your church with a separate nonprofit and an LLC so you can serve your community by contributing to its economic life, and thus becoming an essential part of your community. As an example, I regularly have conversations with our city manager, the police department and the economic development director in my community about how we can serve our city. I’m currently working on a project where our church will have a six-figure income with a 2% increase over the next 99 years and solves a problem in our city.

Johan Mostert, Ph.D.

“Join me in caring for those that God cares deeply about: the last, least, little, and lost. The marginalized and vulnerable. The children in the foster care systems and the unemployed or underemployed victims of injustice. I can help you church or organization with effective compassion efforts that make a real difference, deploy the gifts and skills of your people, and make your neighborhoods and nations flourish. I helped transform a major church’s welfare programs as South Africa transitioned to democracy in the 1990s. I understand the pressures that pastors, non-profit leaders, and business owners face as they manage their responsibilities while deeply desiring to make a difference in the world. My passion for the Discipleship Dynamics Assessment is rooted in seeing ALL of life honor God and no longer separating sacred and secular, personal and social, but seeing Christ as Lord of all.”

Dr. Johan Mostert brings to your church, business, and organization more than half a century of experience as a pastor, psychologist and professor, executive leader in compassion and social service organizations, entrepreneurial thinking and dedication to justice and opportunity for all. Johan is the lead co-developer of the Discipleship Dynamics Assessment, with particular concerns for its psychometric properties.  He can empower your organization with

  • Creating structures that channel compassionate concerns into effective relief, rehabilitation, and development expressions with measurable results
  • Turning your church or organization outward: moving from, “how do we survive?” to “how do we creatively and cooperatively help our community flourish?”
  • Design pathways for incorporating the Discipleship Dynamics Assessment and related resources into the life of your church or organization
  • Discover the integration of faith, work and economics wisdom for empowering congregants in their spheres of social influence and daily work.

Johan is a native South African with dual citizenship.  He has degrees in theology (BS), social work (BA), and psychology (MA and PhD).  After 28 years of service to a major denomination in South Africa as pastor and director of their Department of Welfare he transitioned to the academy.  Since 2004 he has been a Professor of Community Psychology at the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary. He is currently Director of Family and Community Resources (COMPACARE) at AG Family services, with a focus on engaging local churches in all facets of foster care and compassion for the vulnerable.

Rev. Charles E. Self, Ph.D.

“There has never been a better moment to assess and transform your local church worship, discipleship, and outreach efforts, with a focus on OUTCOMES instead of methods and programs. The same is true for recalibrating your non-profit or business venture. “Social enterprise” is more than giving away money from profits: it means designing all you do with a triple bottom line in mind: care for people and the planet, profits and shareholder returns rooted in ethical practices, and seeing God’s mission realized through the good work of all people. I co-developed the Discipleship Dynamics Assessment™ to offer a vision of wholeness and biblically grounded and scientifically affirmed ways of celebrating progress in both individuals and communities. I bring 40 years of experience as a pastor and professor, consultant and public voice, author and speaker to help your church or organization move forward in its divine purpose.
