Rev. Tom Smith (he/him)

Tom’s journey into coaching began during a pivotal period of transition in his own life. Having experienced the profound impact of coaching’s ability to expand one’s perspectives and challenge one’s assumptions, he was inspired to offer that experience to others. This spark of inspiration guided him throughout his career, which encompasses diverse roles in corporate America, ministry, and leadership within the ELCA.

Tom’s strength as a life coach lies in creating a safe and nonjudgmental space for his clients. His approach is holistic, addressing the emotional, spiritual, and practical aspects of change. This style provides clients with space for exploration, resulting in actionable steps and identified accountability partners. 

First as pastor and now as a national coach for the ELCA and coach for Vibrant Faith Ministries, Tom specializes in guiding people through the maze of life transitions. In a world characterized by constant change, he walks with clients as they identify the tools and strategies needed to not only navigate transitions but to thrive amid them. 

Through it all, celebrating successes is a fundamental part of his process, empowering clients to recognize and build upon their achievements.
