Summary of Services

SOLIDpastors is a Christ-centered 501(c)(3) that provides personal coaching, professional coaching, and advising services to senior leaders of Christian churches and parachurch ministries. SOLID, inspired by 2 Timothy 2:19, was birthed out of a workplace ministry Bible study in 1989. Since then, SOLID has provided executive leadership coaching to more than 1,200 CEOs and senior executives across the globe. In 1999, SOLID’s founder, Daniel Mueller, started providing coaching to senior pastors as a way of tithing his time and talent. In 2017, we formed a board, filed for non-profit designation, added church-effectiveness software systems to our offering, and began certifying retiring pastors and senior executives as Pastor Coaches and Advisors.

Focus on Senior Leaders

We believe that senior pastors, executive pastors, and executive directors of Christian ministries are collectively the single greatest underserved group of key influencers in society. The pressure on their performance could not be greater and the stakes could not be higher. They need a safe place to turn for help. One of the key reasons we exist is to provide that support.

Services for Your Team

While our focus is your senior leadership, we also provide a full array of coaching and advising services for your staff. We accomplish this through our team of certified coaches and advisors, as well as ministry partners.

How We Charge for SOLID Services

All coaching and advising services are either free or on a sliding scale, and by proposal. We will identify your needs, and put together a recommended scope of work that will often represent a 70–90% discount off the fees we charge in our sister, for-profit company, SOLID Leaders ( We raise money from the Christian executive community to fund our work, and recruit professional coaches and advisors to provide their services at no charge or at greatly discounted rates. In exchange, we ask you to support our ministry to whatever degree God leads you.


We provide Pastor Coach and Advisor Certification for soon-to-be or currently semi-retired pastors or executives who have the passion, natural aptitude, and time to deliver our coaching and advising services. This, combined with our recruitment of existing coaches and advisors, rounds out our team of service providers. We require everyone who delivers services to be certified, thereby ensuring top-quality coaching and advising that will meet the needs of your staff and your church.


We offer software for your church that will help you achieve operational excellence. One of our board members, Joel Trammell, has invested over seven million dollars in developing a software platform that is deployed in the for-profit sector, producing transformational results for organizational leaders. It will do the same for your church, if you are ready for it. And if you are not at that level of operational maturity yet, we can help you get ready. Our team of advisors will determine if it is appropriate for your situation. Go to for more information on this software.

In addition to our services, we have ministry partners who specialize in serving Christian church and parachurch organizations. We have teamed up with some of the best in the business to ensure we can handle organizational challenges of any size.
