Michael Brodeur, CEO
Dr. Michael Brodeur, D. Div. is the Director of Leaders Alliance. He’s also the CEO and founder of Pastor’s Coach and CEO and founder of Destiny Finder. Michael spent 33 years ministering in San Francisco, beginning with street outreach as part of a church mission, then co-founding an evangelistic street ministry that has brought hundreds of people to faith in Jesus over the years. In the 80s he and his wife Diane planted the Vineyard Christian Fellowship of San Francisco, which eventually grew to be the largest evangelical church that the City had seen in several decades.
The church flourished with evangelism, a healing center, arts ministries, home groups, an outreach to the neo-hippie kids of the Haight Ashbury, and more. At the core was Michael’s heart, his passion, his hunger, to see the Body of Christ functioning in the fullness of the ministry of Christ: apostolic, prophetic, evangelistic, pastoral and teaching (Ephesians 4). At the center is leadership.
In the 90s, Michael developed a powerful and practical approach to destiny discovery and development that is delight-driven, and that became the basis for Destiny Finder, our companion website. Destiny Finder provides the tools and framework for individuals to discover and fulfill their God-given destiny – to impact the world using their gifts, according to their passion, as God directs. Pastor’s Coach was the extension of those principles, applied to the pastors and churches.
Leaders Alliance is the next step, broadening the focus to impact Christian leaders in every sphere of society.

We approach Leaders Alliance primarily as a ministry of it’s own and from a Kingdom mentality.
We understand that leaders and pastors all over the world have very different financial situations. We know that megachurches and church plants and kingdom enterprises also have very different financial situations. Therefore we strive to make sure that price isn’t a limiting factor. In so doing we try to balance the tension between meeting people where they are at and paying our own bills. We offer several payment plan options and we have some scholarships; please inquire if needed.
Members receive two personal coaching appointments per year. Additional coaching is by fee; we offer discounts when appropriate.
Coaching is the art of having conversations that nourish and motivate growth. We aren’t psychologists who work through your past. We are people developers. We push you to do today what it takes to become who you want to be in the future. As you grow, so will your ministry.
- Coaching can be done by email, phone, Skype or in-person; with individuals or groups.
- First, we help you discover the goals that God wants you to work on during this season.
- Next, we’ll develop a plan that melds Biblical principles, the Spirit’s voice, your personality, and practical wisdom.
- When you are ready we’ll put your plan into action. There will be unforeseen obstacles. At times you may even want to quit. That’s when your coach will be the most helpful. Through hard work and in partnership you’ll achieve your goal.
- A session lasts approximately 50 minutes but there is also preparation time before the session and processing time after the session.
- Contact us to arrange for coaching. Phone: 916-467-9934, or email [email protected]
As leaders we all have our limitations. When executives, CEOs, and performing artists want to be their best, they seek a coach. Pastors and leaders can benefit same way. An expert can help you overcome your personal challenges and achieve better results in many different areas.
We focus on all types of leaders with a Kingdom mindset: from church pastors, to thought leaders, to business leaders.
We can also do training with entire teams.
Some people only reach out for coaching during a time of crisis, or to seek tips for growth. For best results we recommend having an ongoing relationship. Most of the leaders in our network will call every two weeks at first, then gradually reduce that over time.
Personal development requires an ongoing commitment. If you were learning to sing, or wanted to improve at baseball, you would need frequent training. The same is true for ministry.
We have members literally all over the world, from California to the Ukraine, from Canada to Brazil. We do most of our ministry online, through Zoom, etc. For coaching, we can coach via Zoom or Skype, over the phone, or send a team member to you in person.
We have a team of seasoned pastors on call who are experienced at personal development. We match you with someone who is a good fit for your personality and who can help you with the challenges you are facing.
