About Coaching

As your coach, I accompany you through the highs and lows of your professional or personal life. Our coaching conversations are tailored to empower you by listening deeply to what is shared, asking questions which lead to further insights, and sharing observations along the way. Our sessions are centered in an intentional, non-judgmental, curiously open-minded, and strictly confidential coaching presence.


Sonja Ware is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and a Coach Trainer for the Evangelical Lutheran Church (ELCA). Click to learn more.

Organizational Consulting

Consulting with a coach approach: I believe strongly that you are the expert in your particular organization. In my consultations I offer my observations regarding group dynamic tendencies and organizational structure, focusing on the dynamics in between.

Client Testimonials

"I lead a college ministry with a great team, but we were having a hard time finding a new vision since the pandemic. Sonja was an amazing fit for us and helped guide us into an incredibly productive conversation that helped us to envision a new path going forward. We joked that it felt like a magic trick because she mostly listened and asked questions and yet it helped us look at the same problems from a different angle. Sonja was a vital part of our ministry moving forward."

—Seth N., Pennsylvania

“Coaching has helped me get beyond problem-solving thought loops toward broader perspective on energy, joy, and mission. As a solo pastor, coaching has also been an essential support in work that often feels isolating. After a few years of coaching, I now think much more intentionally about the kinds of questions I am asking, of myself and the congregation I serve.”

—Courtney S., Pennsylvania

"My coaching sessions with Pastor Sonja Ware have been invaluable to my ministry over the last three years. She has a unique ability not only to listen closely to my words but also to detect subtle changes in my mood, face, and spirit as I discuss challenges and joys in my ministry. Each conversation gives me new insight into the answers that are already inside me, an ongoing goal of coaching."

—Chris W., Illinois

"I have worked with Pastor Sonja as my coach for the past 3 years. During that time she has helped me navigate a variety of complex work and personal situations by listening to me and asking thoughtful questions which help me to find clarity on next steps. Her coaching has been an incredible resource for me, and I am grateful for her helpful insights."

—Cindy D., Wisconsin
